We went to this pub after reading many reviews and we were not disappointed! The lamb shanks were cooked to perfection... and being able to drink a good pint of Guinness made the whole pub dining experience a memorable one. Highly recommend it.

My friend and I came here to full in sometime before our movie. We had a few drinks and some sort of deep fried platter. The platter was huge we ran out of time to eat it all before we had to go to our movie

When we lived in Palmy we used to come here a lot. It hasn't really changed. And that's not a bad thing. Prices are certainly a tad lower than other main centres like Auckland. The $10 lunch special (also on weekends) was really good value if you just want a light cheap and cheerful. Staff are friendly and it's a... More

Called in for lunch & at $10 it can't be beaten! Freshly crumbed schnitzel, coleslaw & chips was both fresh, tasty & a decent portion. It was quieter than expected (we were the only customers) with service that was friendly without being overwhelming. Very good!

Ordered the fillet steak sandwich - no way was it fillet but the cheapest cut of steak, overcooked and so tough I couldnt' eat it. Cost $19.50. Worst meal I have had in a long time.
