This hotel is deceiving, looks like a pub but it is more like a restaurant. Staff were friendly, menu had variety though somewhat a little pricy, big meals, not your traditional ‘pub fare’, definitely with a different taste and style, not bad.

I tried this place again to take small group trips. We just want good food. If you're after good food (at any cost), keep driving and head to the Royal Mail in Dunkeld. It's OK, but you're better to pay more and get fabulous! It...More

Nice spot for a pub lunch. We had the blackened barramundi and crispy duckling, both excellent. We found it quite pricey ($35+ for both, desserts about $14) but it was a nice treat.
