300gm scotch carpet bag was not at all tender. It was too fresh. It was cooked rare as requested but even I left the toughest bits. The ‘roast potatoes’ are deep fried and dry. The small sitting duck meal was ok but, small. The salad...More

. We rang at the last minute. Were given a table. We both decided to have the duck and was fantastic. Very tasty. The bottle of local pinot was good. Would recommend this to everyone

Really tasty food, casual setting. We had the steak which was cooked really well, oysters and Salmon which was a little on the over done side but still really tasty. Great salad bar and a good place to visit!

We went to the Jailhouse for our evening meal whilst staying in Launceston. I had the 200g steak and my wife the salmon. Both good and unlimited access to the salad bar. Both meals good as was the service and reasonably priced.
