Great cover band, "Who said what." Great atmosphere, drinks at reasonable prices and fabulous company. A great night out!

Thought we'd try 'Burger Night' (Thursday nights). The burgers were $15 each and very basic with only lettuce and tomato. They had a list of extras at a cost. So if you wanted the equivalent of a burger with the lot you'd be paying at least $17 and the burger tasted no better than a burger I could buy around... More

Great RSL, we had a table of 10, are members so got extra discounts on meals. Seniors meals for our parents where huge, they enjoyed them. All meals are big, kids meals came out quickly, staff very friendly and helpful.

Have recently moved into the area , thought we'd give the RSL a go. Not bad actually , I ordered the steak ,it was nice a tender , the other half said her chicken Parma was beautiful and the kids liked their meals. We will go back for sure.

Order up at the counter, do a decent kids menu, the mains are big and generic. We go often when mum doesn't want to cook and hubby wants a schnitzel and a beer! Kids happy with a Xbox system. Not a gastro pub - just a decent local.

Very impressed with range of gluten free food available for people Dx with coeliac disease. Main meals, entrees and desserts. A warm atmosphere, although can be noisy, suggest table around the back towards the exit to toilets as quietest. Food was delicious and very reasonably priced.

Oh dear, from 'Wo' to 'Go' it was consistently lukewarm and tasteless. I've never known a 'Slow Cooked pork-belly' dish to have bones in it. Guessing they were out and BBQ charred some packet pork ribs. The chicken wings meat was dry, still cold in the centre and had been drowned with a BBQ sauce. They were supposed to be... More

Disappointing restaurant, disappointing service, disappointing food. Went here after a gap of some years based on a pleasant previous visit. It's changed, the staff couldn't be bothered, plates were just plopped on the table, no eye contact or greeting from the waitstaff. Hubby had fish and chips which was greasy, I had lukewarm roast pork accompanied by cold vegies, which... More

We went here for my nieces 18th birthday, staff were great, meals were very disappointing for the price & very inconsistent, we had a group of 60 & no one enjoyed their meal , won't be back!
