Partners Parma was good , my fish was a bit bland an the salad could of used a bit of dressing with flavour apart from that good looking extensive menu, loved the bruschetta. Price is good will be back again to try other stuff.

My husband and I went here for an impromptu meal and as always the meals are very generous in size. My husband had the liver and bacon and mash and I had the Guinness pie with mash. My husband loved his meal -not for me though. I had the Guinness pie which was full of very tender chunks of beef... More

Have been a couple of times and found it pretty ordinary. The food is just ok. The decor is very dated, dismal really. The staff seem bored, can't say I blame them. A supposed Irish pub but no Guiness!

A good place to sit outside on a weekend and have a drink . The staff seem a little tired of it all . the meals are ok nothing special . I prefer just to have a drink .Its a place you can have a drink with your mates ,a country pub .

Very plain food but have eaten worse in other places went a few times. But found better elswhere. Friendly staff. Grubby old feel about it. Not very inviting. Would only go back if there was noting better around.

Seems all pubs in marsh have a niche. This one is the broadest demographic. It's where friends and family can catch up but also a Sunday chill out music venue, a poker night pub and bikie pub at times . Not formal and not pricey has a great 'homey' relaxed feel.

well if your looking at stepping back in time you need to eat here. I think the staff are a bit back wards also all they need is the 1800's clothes on them the food is generous and may be to much on plate but overall you would be more interested in the artifacts around the eating area watch out...

We had a very ordinary meal my son and I had the T Bone which were both tough and my partner had the seafood platter. Food is mostly deep fried. Pub is very old but is a good venue to have a drink outside listening to the entertainment.
