Drinks and atmosphere are just fine as is the service. The food is not up to scratch which is strange given that their restaurant is very good.

I absolutely love their seafood chowder found it to be more of a soup which never taste any different to the first time :). Found the steak too peppery on my steak meal, King prawns seemed off on my personal order but the service was satisfactory. platters, we usually love this but this time everything was burnt leaving a charcoal...

I'm not sure how, but we ended up having lunch here, thinking we were in the Hotel dining room, although we did think it was unusual to have high stools round the table! (When we left, we saw the REAL dining room.) The meal was quite acceptable.

The V bar as its known to the locals is good pub grub if you are looking to have a beer and enjoy the watching the world go by! Its hit and miss sometimes whether the food is really good or just average, but generally a safe bet is the pizza!

We popped in for a drink at the weekend and sat inside as there were no seats available outside. It's an ok bar for a social drink but they could do with giving the tables a good clean as they were extremely sticky.

We celebrated our diamond wedding here and staff went of their way to help. The deep fried fish was a little over done however deserts made up for it. The outlook is interesting over the Main Street to the bay.

The hotel is a bit dated and could do with an overhaul. Food was not too bad but just average pub food. The smokers get the best view outside. There was an entertainer the night we were there. He was average but his followers enjoyed listening to him.

It's worth the visit. It's exactly what it is not trying to be fancy just good honest food at good prices $31 for sirloin steak (pretty big) and you get your money worth not like other restaurants where you pay more for less

My husband and I were drawn here because of their gourmet pizza menu. Wow, was it ever good!!! The food was fresh, hot, tasty and was made super fast. We went for lunch around 1pm and we were the only guests there. It had a sleepy, quiet atmosphere which we enjoyed because it gave us an opportunity to sit by... More
