Four of us sat outside for dinner this evening. Under cover and plenty of room. Great beer (we ordered litres by 'mistake' but they were excellent...), my T-bone steak was cooked medium to perfection, with plenty of mushrooms. Lamb, Snapper and Soup were apparently equally good. Local wines were an excellent accompaniment. Service was a bit slow, and not as personal or attentive or even as interactive as many other places, but we were happy to sit and chat. So great food, but not up there with the best service.

Menu is very meat based, they have awards for the quality of their beef & lamb. Partner ordered sirloin which was excellent, tender and very tasty. I had smoked chicken which was good, came with nice potatoes, spinach & tomato, a nice change from chips.
Nice beer selection. Staff helpful, friendly & efficient. It was busy and there seemed to be a few regulars in which speaks for itself.

We waited well over an hour for our food. When we asked how much longer it would be we were told they were plating up. This took another half an hour to do. The chowder was lukewarm, the eggs on toast were eggs on bread and the chicken salad was boiled chicken with lettuce, a couple of thin slices of tomato and 2 slices of cucumber. The group behind us got up and left because they were sick of waiting. Never again!

Cane for lunch in a Saturday with a group of friends. Waited over an hour for food. Service was very slow. When asked how long food would be they said they were playing up - that was 25 minutes ago. Food still not arrived. Getting ready to walk out.
