We had one very pleasant afternoon visit with good service and drinks, and another less positive evening visit. It has a good menu and drinks list, and is in a great spot for people watching but staff are very mixed quality and attitude!

We found this place to be good value. We had a beer, a bowl of hot yummy soup, and wedges. Very tasty all round and the service was friendly. Would go back.

Good place to have a beer and some bar food. Lots of tourists, but locals visit the place as well. Located in the middle of the village on SH6.

The food here was really good but was unfortunately let down by the service, the staff seemed unhappy and like smiling was a task

Had an evening meal, all good. The staff were helpful and sorted me out with a meal done in a way I enjoyed rather than slavering garlic on everything like other restaurants ......

Nice blue cod and chips. But such unfriendly service at the counter! :( No smiles and everything seemed bothersome to her. Wouldn't come here again. :(

Chose this place because it had the most varied menu, plus it was busy which we took to be a sign of good food. It was packed between 6pm and 7pm but emptied out from 7.30pm. Staff were quick and efficient. Orders came quickly. Beef...More

Came here because the last kitchen was packed and very impressed. Super service very friendly welcoming staff and very good Mexican style food. Very good wine list which was not extortionately priced. Basically a good evening with good food.

We were really craving Bloody Mary but no one there seemed to know how to make them. Regardless the food and staff were very good.
