The Rusty Lady offers a wide variety of food, from pizzas to burgers and stews. I particularly enjoy their Pizza. On weekends, they have entertainment and offer an enjoyable evening.

A wide variety of meals to choose from in a lovely atmosphere. There is often a music event and always rugby on the big screens.

A quirky, eclectic interior adds to the charm of this place. Usually quiet so best to visit on Sunday (occasional) for some live music! Good food and solid portions. Decent service. Definitely worth a visit🍻

Have been here before for lunch and it was great. This time there were only about 4-5 tables occupied and the service and food were really not up to standard. Only saw our waitress about 4 times the whole time we were there and I...More
