Not well seasoned beef and cashew stirfry. Pork cutlets were chewy and too fatty. Sweet potato watery mash. Salad was sparse.

Great tavern style meals. Friendly staff, and the meals were served quickly. We had Chicken Mignon with mash and veggies, and chicken schnitzel with chips, salad and mushroom sauce. Both were generous serve size and delicious.

Me and my mate went out for lunch and I had the scotch fillet with creamy garlic sauce. The steak was cooked perfectly and the sauce was beautiful. Mate had the steak sandwich and didn't have any complaints about his food either. Great food Jai!

Great tavern with pleasant staff, good variety of meals and reasonable prices. They were very busy the night we went but still had our food out in good time. Recommended.

There were 3 of us. Nice enough atmosphere. Friendly staff. Quick service. I had the "Seafood taster for 1". Reasonable sample with Baramundi, tempura calamari, chili prawns and 3x raw oysters. Wife enjoyed her Chicken Parmigana, but the "Beef and Cashew stir-fry" for my daughter...More

We have free to air tv, I was unable to find a channel that televises the game - it looks like this is only available on foxtel. Sorry. The Kalbarri Hotel has foxtel, perhaps they are televising the game.
