Went on a winery tour with friends and we decided to stop here for lunch. As it was a Monday they weren't too busy. You have to order food and drinks at the counter. Staff friendly. We ordered 2 steaks and the roast of the day! The drinks came out quick and food came out in a timely manner. All... More

Beer garden is great, bottle shop is excellent - bar /wait staff are good - restaurant leaves a lot to be desired. In my opinion food is generally pre-cooked and well below average for Willunga.

Dinner on Tuesday night. A really great country pub. Friendly staff with good service. Meals are always a good size - we can rarely eat everything on the plate. The self service salad bar was good, but we did have to ask for bread (minor detail and we are not that precious). Always love the beef porterhouse schnitzel. Needless to... More

Called in several times over the weekend of Fleurieu Folk Festival, lunch, dinner and even to pick up a bag of ice. Each visit was accompanied by a pint (or more) of Guinness. Friendly staff, always smiling, great staff and reasonably priced great food.

True old country pub with friendly hosts, good service and hearty meals. Self serve vegetables and salad bar was an included bonus. The open fire was a welcome treat as well. Loved the bread and butter pudding! Very reasonably priced menu and no frills family atmosphere. You won't get candlelit ambience but you will get a great meal that is... More
