Delicious food, friendly efficient service, great setting. It pays to book as they are often booked out. Beer and rugby out the back and warm, cosy dinner dining in the front. A local favourite!

Four of us had dinner at the Split Bar. We went on a weekend night. The food came fairy quickly and the service was good. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered and I would eat here again. The price was typical for what we ordered.
