Had dinner here last Thursday night while on a fishing trip from Oz. The food was great and very well priced. The selection of beers was also good. Service was very friendly and the food was served quickly. Our steaks were cooked perfectly. 10/10.

Good, very good, pub grub. The chef here can cook a good steak and the chips were lovely too. A small shame the beef pattie in my husband’s burger wasn’t a home made one, but he still enjoyed it. Will happily revisit when we’re in...More
