“A great modern pub on the beachfront.”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

It's lovely to sit on the big terrace and have a drink, some good pub food and smell the salt sea air. Children like it too as there's a special play area just for them and the kids' meals are good value. This modern pub is situated on the ocean front at Salt Beach, just south of Kingscliff. However there's a buffer zone of gorgeous casuarina and pandanus trees between it and the beach so the actual view of the ocean is limited. You can still hear the surf crashing though. It's a wonderful venue for a nice meal and a drink, or even a coffee and cake for morning tea. Highly recommend.

“Its more than a Pub.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We held a birthday party here last saturday night, fantastic service from ALL the staff and good meals, the venue was fully booked but nothing was to much trouble, the meals are better than pub standard and a good range of wines and beer is available, if you like a Pale ALe try the Mt Warning (local brew).
Thankyou for helping to make this a special night.

When staying at peppers or mantra (don't stay there) it is convenient and good value for money. Food is great. People are friendly and helpful.

“What you don't know - you don't know!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

The reason for the title is due to receiving our oysters and mains at the same time and when we refused to have our mains until we finished the oysters we were told we should have requested this. This is the first place ever that we have expereinced this. When we did receive our mains they we dried out due to being kept under the heater until we were ready. As this hotel has enormous turnover of food we don't understand why we could not have received fresh meals. The steak was tough but not impossible to eat. Great for young families and those wanting to party, not good if you want to communicate.
