Great selection of beer and staff are lovely. However we had pizzas and they weren't very nice. Mine smelt like seafood dispite not being a seafood pizza and both our pizzas had far too much on them, meaning they were hard to eat and the...pizza base was soggy and under cooked. Would go again for beer but not for food.More

Awesome selection of beer. The pork schnitzel was very yummy. Standout dish was the beef roulade. Definitely worth saving room for the strudel! Great fast service and attentive staff.

We were staying at the camping ground so a short walk to here (well planned!) during Labour Weekend. Place was busy but is large so plenty of spots to sit outside. We enjoyed a tasting paddle of the beers. Hard decision on what was a...yummy sounding menu. In the end hubby had the Rinds Roulade and I had the Thai Beef Salad. Wow! Both very large meals and absolutely delicious!! Staff friendly - and locals chatty too. Great night at a great place. ThanksMore
