“Great Atmosphere and View”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

I loved it in here. At first it feels like it might be a bit spit n sawdust but actually it was very pleasant with loads of character. There were proper big old boys with hats and moustaches lined up at the bar, but they didn't bat an eyelid when my friend ordered a diet beer which I thought was very decent of them. I'm not sure they're aiming to suit every tourist who walks through the door as it seemed to be a place where many local people come to enjoy themselves and catch up with their friends. That's probably why I liked it so much. It's definitely got a good bar atmosphere.
Without exception the staff were very friendly and the food was delicious though saying that, we didn't order anything too fancy - just fried chicken and chips with slaw which is exactly what we craved!
The setting of this place is the really special thing. The sound of water rushing over the rocks, is enough to settle you after a long day trawling round Sequoia Park.
I'm wondering if some of the negative reviews come from people who need to just slow down a little and remember they're on holiday? ;-)

“Tasty but slow”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

This place is more of a bar with sandwiches. It has nice views and a deck overlooking the river. It is very casual. I had a French dip sandwich that was tasty and good beef, but served on dinky buns. The service was very, very slow.

“Beautiful setting”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Patio on river was shaded and relaxing. There was only one cigarette smoker and it was amazing how much that affected the entire area. Food was good, salad fresh, and we had excellent service.

“Excellent View”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

The place looks like a hole in a wall and it is a hole in the wall, lol. Don't let the appearance deceive you. Get a table outside and you get a great view of the river and refreshing air. The only bad thing is that there is an area outside for smokers. The food was great and the prices were very reasonable. We enjoyed our lunch and was very satisfied.
