A relaxing place to catch up with friends and have a great pub meal. You can't beat the battered rig, it's tops for me.

Great little pub situated at Cape Foulwind. Always enjoy a good meal here and a chat with the friendly locals. My personal favourite on the menu is lamb shanks and mash with lashings of gravy. Yum!

Dinner with the kids. Local beer and whitebait (yum!) with table tennis and pool while we waited. Real friendly service. Not the cheapest. Good food.

We stayed at the Omau Settlers Lodge for one night as we made our way down the west coast so to find a pub restaurant next door was a boon. Reasonably priced food - my steak was tender and tasty and my wife enjoyed her salmon.
