Nice pub for a drink although my friends say the house wine is rubbish and standard beers are overpriced. We served overcooked burnt food, asked if it was alright we said no, they didn’t care. Eat at the RSL nearby

Enjoyed a nice lunch with our 6 year old daughters. I had the fish tacos and my husband had a burger. The kids burger was a decent size. Bar food well done.
