Spacious bar areas with beer garden, sports bar, and verandah seating on the street. Good variety of beer and the meals menu features add such delights as croc ribs, too pie, and emu burger plus typical pub food like chicken snitzzies.

Well appointed bar (main bar), with style suited to the region and era gone by. Nice and cool inside too! Drinks were better priced than neighboring establishments and the quality of the food was excellent.
