We were staying in Taylors motel across the road from Robbies so this was an obvious choice for a meal and ended up being an excellent choice. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the food brilliant. Would definitely go back again if we are in the area.

Popped in as we were staying across the road from here. The waitress was lovely and had a great knowledge of the menu, especially for veggies. Good sized portions and relaxed atmosphere. Certainly worth popping in if you're in the area.

This was the closest restaurant to the motel we were staying at, so decided to have dinner here. It has a large restaurant area as well as bar area. Staff were excellent and dinner was average and what you'd expect at this type of place. If staying at the same motel, would probably eat here again.

This was the second time we have eaten here in 2 months. The previous visit we were disappointed in the service and meals but decided we would give the place another chance but it was actually worse than that previous visit. I'm not sure why the change with this place but it has certainly gone downhill. When we got a... More
