We ate here when we were staying at Silo Stay. A short walk or cycle along the Little River rail trail. We had steak and veg and fish and chips. Well cooked and tasty food. Quiet evening in the bar but friendly and welcoming.

We stopped in at this restaurant as it was close to our accommodation. The place is not much to look at, still worth walking in as the food and the service is awesome. Such large portions and delicious. Thank you.

Popped in with a group of classic car owners for a drink and a meal. Service was fast and the meal was tasty. Exactly what you would expect from a country pub.
