Nice Older style Pub, food was good and you can sit outside and enjoy the afternoon sunshine with a nice cold beer. We were staying across the road at the East Hotel so popped over for a pub meal. The males were good and so was the service. Nothing fancy but we enjoyed.

What a great hotel to relax and enjoy a drink and a meal, friendly helpful staff and kid friendly . A choice of two eateries if you want to cook your own steak or try the other restaurant and sit back while they cook for you, plenty of choices on menu .

Even had a 'cook your own steak' with serve yourself salad selection as a meal option. Nice location with al fresco dining which was pleasant on a hot summer afternoon. Drink prices are typical $ 5.00... More

We eat twice and this hotel whilst staying in Canberra and on both occasions we had a really nice meal. The prices are quite reasonable too. One night we chose from the restaurant menu and the other night from the beer garden menu. The burgers are huge.

This is a nice place to stop and have a drink if you are in the area, the food is ok and you can even cook your own in the bbq area. they have an outside area if you can handle the cold of Canberra, to cool for this Queenslander. Nice atmosphere.
