Yes, the ONLY place for dinner in town. And that wasn't just because very little else was open, but because the food was excellent.
Admittedly we opted for the scotch fillets, which were at the top end of the menu, but regardless they were wonderful pieces of meat perfectly cooked to our separate requirements. The kids, and we have three aged between 2-7, ate what appeared to us to be freshly prepared on the premises fish & chips. So really, close to full marks for the food. Slightly disappointing was the sides were served from a bain marie. I don't get this, but I guess it's a convenience / value (all you can eat) decision, but it's one that always bothers me as in my experience people have wildly differing standards of hygiene!
The dining room was nice, if a little smokey but that is a more than acceptable price for an open log fire crackling in winter. On the service front, it was generally pretty good, but oddly, the worst service/ambiance came from who appeared to be the owner / publican who sent out a distinctly cold feeling unless you were known to him. I would have thought tourists would be the lifeblood of a small town pub like this.
All up though, I would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting a hearty meal in a lovely location after a hard day on the trails. If your experience is anything like ours, you won't be disappointed.
