Was recommended by our hotel so went for a look. Bistro style setup and served a great pasta! Was surprised as with the simple look of the place wasn't expecting much from the food but surprised it was great. Would recommend.

The food was okay but nothing fantastic...even a bit bland. I asked for a rump steak medium and I got medium to well done it came out on slept together no presentation at all On the upside service was good and quick. Would probably pick somewhere else next time

Not a place for quiet romantic meal but on a wet and windy night in Mount Gambier this place was packed, which was pretty impressive considering how big the dining area is. Very popular with families, not surprising given the value for money, so although the atmosphere was good it was pretty noisy. Service was very good considering how busy... More

This was not my type of place. The restaurant area is big and bright, with a TV on and not very cosy dining. The menu was big so a lot of choice, but the food is average at most. The staff was very friendly though so that was nice and food was served fast as well.

Well presented, Good food, reasonably priced. Staff are friendly when they are ready to serve you. We where waiting. They saw us waiting. Dining area was empty. They may have been busy with prep. Just a little acknowledgement to say i'll be with you in a moment would of made the world of difference.

A tidy pub well set up for dining and very spacious. A great option if you want the usual staples in a safe and pleasant environment. Happy to return, and the kids ice-cream selection was a hit with all family members.

The food was okay but nothing fantastic...even a bit bland. Warm Chicken Salad was lovely tho. Kids Cheesy Pizza was too tomatoey and my son wouldn't eat it. Place was really noisy. On the upside service was good and quick. Would probably pick somewhere else next time

Pretty typical pub.We shared an entree of olives with feta,served warm-absolutely excellent.There was a seafood special-prawns and scallops with curly fries.We all ordered the same thing.Sadly it didn't match up to the entrée.It was ok but disappointing.
