After a very hot morning of sightseeing we decided to have lunch here before our sky rail journey down. The beer was icy cold, and the food so delicious. My husband had a burger and chips, said it was fantastic. I had the BEST chicken ceaser salad I have ever had, vale for money , huge in fact. Plenty of... More

Food was good although service was slow. Very disappointed in price charged for a lime soda and bitters at the bar. They did not have bitters given soda and slices of lime and charged $5.00+ for large glass with lots of ice.. would have been better off buying a bottle from the fridge.

Nice looking place. Had the chicken wrap and chips. Little bland but chips were nice. Was a little shocked at the price vs amount of food on the plate but mums burger looked huge. I just chose the wrong thing! Beer was nice and cold on a hot day, most important for us kiwis.

We came up on the Skyrail just in time for lunch. This pub is conveniently located as you get off. It has a good menu and I was tossing between the barramundi or the calamari and after consultation with the staff I chose the Calamari and it was delicious.

Hubby and I had lunch there and have been raving adout it ever since. Everything was cooked perfectly. No rubberized squid for me that day. We were so impressed, considering some of the food we have had in the previous 2 weeks, we had to let them know. Thanks again, it was gooood.

Well priced, good pub food. We had sirloin and barramundi. Steak was cooked perfectly but garlic bread was cold. There is a sign in the bar advising they have new management and staff are on their "L" plates. Give them a go. It's a lovely place to sit and have a meal.

Will not be back... More
