Went here for lunch - actually could've planted crops and waited for the harvest in the meantime... Let's get one thing straight - the food is exceptional. Well worth the wait, but not if you're hungry now! It's an excellent spot for a few drinks and food, if you have 3 hours to burn!

Did not eat here so this review cannot cover food here. Had a couple of beers here , atmosphere was ok, was probally a quite time of year. Barman was a little quite and when asked a question , struggled to show interest.

Started out by going to watch a rugby match - not even the Stormers [!] and stayed all evening for drinks and a meal. The atmosphere is superb and the great thing about this pub is the ambiance whereby you could be talking to your mates one minute and the next you're off in another corner conversing with other locals...

The food is excellent and full value for money. It's not a pub it's the place where everybody knows your name. Drinks reasonably priced and late night jagermeister can become very jovial and lead to problems in the morning. The only place to be.

So we walked in to total emptiness. Wasn't sure if they are open for lunch. We sat down and a waitress came to assist. We decided to order milkshakes for a change. Well, sad to say it was tasteless and watery :( I was told they are know for their COWBOY burger. Mmmmmm....I found it very dry and not easy... More
