I can remember the last time I visited a restaurant in a group and had perfect service- well done. All the meals were punctual, correct and delicious. The kids meals are a really good size, as were the mains we choose. They were happy to oblige and serve in any way to their credit. Parking available around the back. I'd... More

Enjoyed a night with friends. Restaurant was nearly full but staff accommodated us with a friendly smile and professionalism. Ordered the steak, a rump with mushroom sauce chips salad. It was very enjoyable and was quality. My other dining partners enjoyed their meal selections It's a good local pub and very enjoyable

After being forgotten about after being seated, it took 50 minutes for 2 x schnitzel to be cooked, wasn't busy. Wasn't bad once it finally came out.

Visited the Nags many times but the most recent visit was disappointing. Only two specials and a fairly limited menu. Viking cutlet which has always been a favourite served with slabs of potato more suited for a truck stop. The super salad salad (with no kale because they had run out) pretty ordinary compared to when it first appeared on... More

After traveling in the States for a few weeks, it was great to visit a local pub for dinner again, and I can honestly say this was the best meal I have had in weeks. I chose the Barramundi topped with bacon strips, with vegetables & rice and it was absolutely amazing! My husband & friends all had steaks and... More

The night started very well. Our booked table was alongside a private function which was a hockey presentation. Noise level was not what I wanted for a nice night out to celebrate together. Our hostess was very obliging and moved us to a table near the front end away from the private function. Whilst still loud it was comfortable. Our... More
