We enjoy going down for lunch and grabbing a quiet drink, or heading out on a Fri/Sat night for a bit of fun. Staff are very friendly, food is nicely priced and very enjoyable.

Lovely place to sit on the veranda with an ice cold pitcher and watch the world go by in the afternoon. We returned for dinner and had the most delicious wagu steaks and chicken Caesar salads. Reasonably priced, great food but had to wait an age for a cocktail.......

Large menu, good food, my pasta was ok. Very saucy and I love sauce, but too much. Everyone else enjoyed their meal. Karaoke was happening and it was a popular place to be.

Had a nice couple of meals here, reasonably priced and fair quality. Fish was nice, steak a bit tough. The pub has been nicely restored, good dining facilities and a room for the kids too! Overall, good for a country pub.
