Good pub grub. I ordered a burger which took quite a long time to come out. Nice atmosphere with pool tables and large TVs to watch the rugby.

Relaxed Kiwi pub popular with locals and travellers plenty of room for large groups. Good range of classic pub food and pizzas at reasonable prices and large servings. I had a sweet potato and quinoa burger which was really tasty. Wine and beer at great prices too. Fun game of pool while waiting for our burgers.

In a village where the choices are limited, Chamois has the market as the "affordable" option. We waited an hour for our food - ceaser salad and a burger - as there were two large groups that order d before us. When the food finally arrived, it was ok. Edible but nothing to rave about and definitely not the standard... More

We had perfectly good food and reasonably priced drinks (happy hour) served by friendly and helpful staff who answered all questions honestly and fairly. Questions were posed after reading some reviews. We were told there would be a 35-minute wait on the food because of a large group (most free tables were reserved) so no worries there. By the time...
