Don't order a dish each ! These dishes are designed to share, All meals were lovely except the trumpter was dry and over cooked. Staff are great and service is prompt. Chairs are comfortable.

Had burger and drink deals which were terrific value for money. We sat at a table on the waters edge looking out to the snow capped mountains. Staff were very friendly and food delicious. A great spot for lunch.

Had a nice meal and drinks on the wharf @ The Public. The service was exceptional and the pub was warm on a very cool day.

We came here earlier in the day for a sit down and a drink, so when we were thinking about a place to eat we felt it would be rude not to.

For the lazy: great food, wine and staff.

We ordered the venison leg and the pork schnitzel with a bottle of 2014 local pinot noir. While the pork was good, the venison and wine were astounding. Camren, our waiter, had advised us to try these and we weren't disappointed.

Worth every penny.
