Here you can not have exceptional food, but the place is comfortable, and you can watch sports on TV and play pool. Sticky tables.

Not a trendy place, but a good family pub. The pub is well appointed, clean, polished timber throughout. The food won't blow you away but it's pretty good value for the prices. Seems like it'd be a great place to watch sport as there is no shortage of screens. Id go back.

We meet a couple of other families here now and then for Sunday lunch. Great value for families - $13.50 for a rump or sirloin steak, which the guys cook on the big bbq together. All you can eat salad bar to go with it and kids eat free. They're also happy to give you jugs of water and glasses... More

We came to eat here after a long day sight seeing. The restaurant was ok, but more of a sports bar than restaurant. Atmosphere was minimal, felt more like getting a meal at a fast food restaurant. Food was ok as were the prices. We weren't impressed enough to return during our trip.

In a bit of a boring area and not very appealing. The backyard is ok if you want to have a few drinks on a sunny day. Wouldn't necessarily recommend it.

The pub has had a recent makeover, which is quite nice. Would loved to sit outside however the cigarette smoke was overwhelming ... so we sat inside. Quite dark inside due to the wooden decor. Booth seats were not very comfortable, table aeats looked a lot better. Meals were fairly good, but nothing to brag about. Staff were inconsistent. Some... More

we took some friends on holiday from Germany for lunch. The food was excellent, and the decor and ambience conducive to conversation as we hadn't seen them for 5 years. Staff friendly and helpful. Only downside was the Sydney taxis that do not arrive and apparently never turn up even if the manager rings them! We are not local to... More

I can't remember when I have had a tastier, more tender steak, that was a good portion, in an Hotel! All of us agreed too. Cook your own is fine with me and the grill section is fantastic. The salad bar was ok but I feel with the prices, a bread roll would compliment the value, but would not stop... More

We stumbled across the pub after an evening walk and it ended up being 2 for 1 steak night on a Tuesday, what a deal! One of the best steaks ever! Tender and juicy sirloin. Cooked ourselves with a great salad bar to accompany, great ambience in the pub, it was an unexpected Tuesday night meal to remember. Will be... More
