The menu is extensive and quite expensive for a Pub Dinner. We opted for the daily special of Beer Battered Perch with Chips and Salad. The batter was well flavoured, light and crispy, covered 2 fresh tasting moist, well cooked fish fillets. The salad was...More

This place has a whole heap of staff who just seem oblivious to their work. Seemed to have not cleared tables all morning. Amazing view over the river kind of makes up for it though

Heard the menu had changed so decided to try again. Although the prices had increased slightly the food was excellent. Could not fault any dish. Still a must for visitors.

This place is amazing. Food, service and ambience always exceptional. >10/10. So wish it was closer to Brisbane. 3rd visit. Dessert scrumptious, lamb cutlets and Vegas moth watering. Sized huge - always need doggy bag.

Quiet cafe with large areas indoors and out for dining. I would have to recommend sitting outside as there are shaded tables closer to the river for the best view. Dog friendly area but keep in mind there are legit numbers of water dragons nearby....More

The restaurant has been enlarged and improved, including spreading out onto nice lawns near the River Clarence, good food at reasonable prices and drinks from the bar. Pet and child friendly.

Great setting by the river. I had a steak sandwich - excellent. My wife tells me the halloumi and avocado was the best vege burger ever.

Fabulous little spot. Great food and lovely spot to sit under the jacaranda tree on the river. Food was good quality and a pleasant stop over on a long drive from byron to Sydney !

Opening Hours Breakfast and Lunch 8.30am - 2.30 pm (7days) Dinner 6.00pm - 8.30pm Tues- Sat Outstanding Coffee This is a delightful cafe/restaurant that provides excellent low priced meals in a setting on the banks of the Clarence River. It is right beside the Pacific Highway and is an excellent break point for those driving the Sydney-Brisbane highway. We have eaten there twice in the past week and were most impressed. We think it should be better known, especially as the service is especially friendly.
