This little hidden gem in Port Hawkesbury is simple casual pub dining. With food that is to die for. Must haves include wings, and the solo pizza.

Great location across from the Granville Green, easy access to the concerts, friendly staff and ice cold beer... What else do you need?

Less than you would expect - poor food, terrible building - falling apart! It's a tavern/pub that is past its prime. Give it a miss!

Typical small town type dump that you see everywhere you go. I certainly wouldn't reccomend coming to this establishment unless it's for a evening out with friends and there's a live band playing, where you can chat up friendly folks and have a drink.

We were late into town and looking for a quick bite to eat. The pub was run down and the food was okay, but not wonderful. We did get great service, including a homemade oat cake from our waitress. Very delicious!
