Arriving on Sunday we were looking for somewhere to have a Roast Dinner. Well we couldn't find a simple roast but stumbled across some lamb shoulder at GNH. Great pub with a wonderful meal and would certainly eat here again.

A knowledgeable local had recommended the roast beetroot and pumpkin lentil salad which was a winner! We also shared the buttermilk chicken burger with chips, extremely tasty with just the right amount of spice. Lots of tantalising options. Highly recommend!
