With monthly special dishes, nightly specials the hotel always has something new to try.... Or order from the usual menu. The wood fire pizzas are available three nights a week and are great value for money.

We were staying at the hotel and wanted a light lunch before attending a wedding later that day. We both ordered the salt and pepper calamari. It was very tender and one of the best we've had. It came with a small salad and a small serving of chips which again were some of the best we've had. We thought... More

Like other recent reviewers we experienced a long wait for lunch - this time on a public holiday. Even though we were told 40 mins wait when I ordered, it took a bit over an hour. And it wasn't as if we were there when the rush was on - we ordered about 1.30pm and it was pretty quiet. Staff... More

We arrived at 1pm and ordered 4 meals we also had a 1 year old in toe. It was busy inside. Ordered our meals and over an hour later they finally arrived at the table. Not once was it mentioned that they would take that long. By the time the meals arrived the one year old was feral as from... More

Slow food (> 45 min for lunch), small servings, fish rejected by my 8 year old (when does that ever happen???) because it 'didn't taste right' - very floury & soft. Should have read the previous reviews before picking spontaneous lunch. Don't!

Go elsewhere... The food was tasteless and seemed to be packaged and deep fried. The steak burger consisted of a piece of steak that was of the same thickness as a rasher of bacon and the salad was old and dry.

This bistro is an embarrassment to the hotel. I have given the cooks a number of opportunities to make a good impression, however from badly selected seafood products, leaving food on the pass for 10 minutes and serving the wrong meals to tables. The end result is cooking that is totally underwhelming and disappointing. If you want to have a... More

Very popular local with quite a broad menu. Indoor and outdoor facilities. Pizzas are great value as is the steak night; otherwise slightly above average pub meal prices. Kid friendly. Guiness on tap.
