Your in a pub paying $15 .The menu clearly states steamed vegetables and mashed potato . In future use your words and ask for your vegies on the side.

This is a typical pub, with friendly staff and good value meals. My partner and I had scallops which were ideally cooked, served with chips and a fresh salad. Nothing to complain about and we will be repeat customers. Great value meals.

Staff very friendly and helpful, counter meals are first class at a reasonable cost. there is not a lot of parking in the the area surrounding this pub. but a short walk to this place is well worth it.

Great little authentic pub with a pub menu. I wentered for simple Fish and Chips for $15.00. Great value, fast service. Will go again to try more on the menu.

Definitely the best dining experience of our trip. We visited a number of eateries but this was overall the best. Great atmosphere, great staff and the food was great too - one of the few restaurants catering for vegetarians. On our list for a return.
