Loved everything! Not cheap but definitely delicious and worth the money. We had Venison, lamb rack, rib eye surf and turf and a kids meal. Cooked to perfection- quick service and nice table by the window,

I got my dates mixed up and ended up booking the wrong date to stay. Unfortunately they were full but did their best to offer advice on other places to stay in town. I didn't see the rooms but the area outside was tidy and if the staff are anything to go by I'm sure you'll have a wonderful stay...

On a local recommendation we called in for dinner and chose to eat in the bar. So glad we did as it was Friday night and the atmosphere was great as was the service. Food was excellent - fresh, tasty and huge portions.

Stayed at Gables Motor Lodge next door so we choose this pub for a drink as we could walk. Small simple pub with fireplace, sport on tv, a few pokies and a restaurant. Recommended especially if you are staying at Gables Motor Lodge.

This review is of the pub/hotel, and not the hotel where you would get a room. Although they are housed in the same place. My hotel recommended this place for dinner and a beer and it was close by. So I went in for a beer and dinner. It went like this: Me - "May I get a pint of...
