I'll state straight off that this isn't my usual type of place to eat at, we were given a voucher as a gift. We usually eat fresh homecooked meals and when we eat out we usually expect to eat food that tastes even better than that. This definitely wasn't. The chicken caesar salad I had was okish, but the schnitzel... More

Thanks for the positive review Judy. So glad you enjoy it here...... how about getting a few friends together and join in the Quiz - it is a lot of fun, and our Quiz Host, radio announcer, Miles Davis, makes it an entertaining night. Look forward to seeing you here again :) More

The best pub meals anywhere by far. Good value also, staff are friendly & welcoming. Good selection of beers, nor sure on the wines(wife's dept.). My favourite is the squid rings, wife's chicken filae. Reduced prices on Mondays also except public holidays of course.

Most pub fare I've ever had has been known to be greasy, grimey, not so good for you...anyway... I was expecting that when I ordered but instead was served a lovely dish of lamb, potatoes and veg all arranged beautifully. Not only that- it was delicious and a really nice portion! They have a pool table, cider on tap, what... More

A nice friendly bar, it came highly recommended from locals and didn't disappoint. A place to sit outside with the dog was nice. The menu looked excellent too.

Meals are moderate, a good restaurant to have a beer while watching a sporting event being. We can go with family or friends. Several kinds of beer selling there.
