This place is honestly in a tiny country town in the middle of nowhere but is totally worth the trip. Seriously the meals are HUGE & good as well - good, honest country food. I highly recommend the mixed grill (which my kids refer to as the 'barnyard' cos all the animals are represented)!!

The beer garden out the back is a really nice place to eat with a bird aviary & some wandering chickens. Just don't expect a big selection of interesting beers - it is after all a country pub.

Traditional pub meals but dont even lunch before you come for dinner because the meals are so huge (and fresh) that even my partner had a hard time finishing his meal (and he's a big eater!)

Really fast and pleasant service!!

Ok, so it's a pub and a small town pub at that, so you don't expect much right? Well you should. MASSIVE meals. The large steak (not the monster steak) hangs off both sides of the huge plate, veges are fresh, salad was ok. Drinks are cheap (unless you buy a bottled premixed, but that's not their fault).

Some of the meals are a little noticeable deep fried frozen food (the seafood on the reef and beef) but I am certainly not complaining.

Try it, you will be pleased, but be prepared for a PACKED OUT venue. And make sure you book ahead!

Great pub food.
The pub is a little off the beaten track but certainly worth the journey. Friendly, helpful staff provide efficient service delivering well cooked, hearty meals. Our group of 10 were all served within 25 mins of ordering. Surf & Turf, Mixed Grill and Lamb were all great choices and cost $21-23 a meal. You'd probably need to book a table if planning on going later in the week or on a weekend. We'll be back.
