Reviewed October 7, 2013

Not a lot of choice of venues in Batchelor but this one came up trumps.
Friendly staff, even friendlier locals and really good pub grub.
The biggest plus was that, unlike some other pubs we went to in the NT, this one has a really welcoming, inclusive atmosphere.
Unusually for this part of the world, the prices weren't over inflated either.
We sat outside in the garden although some may prefer the air conditioned interior.
For a pub this far from everywhere and anywhere, we were pleasantly surprised by the choice of wines available.
Highly recommend at least one meal here if you are visiting Litchfield.

Let's face it there is not a lot of choice in Batchelor but this place does not take its custom for granted. The service and the food were great. We had the steak, the spicy schnitzel and the barramundi all of which were really good.

It's a local pub and it doesn't look that welcoming when you first walk in but don't let that put you off.

As I walked the Doors this is the end was playing, there were a few locals and I was unsure what I had walked into.
With a change of song, in came other customers and the feeling in the place changed.
I had the spicy chicken schnitzel, that was spicier and tastier than any at home.
A Guinness and a chat with a fellow travellor made it a good night.

This place has an excellent beergarden under the trees. Food was pretty good for such a remote place.
