Need to erase this place completely from our memories!!! Disastrous. Took one hour between ordering to food delivery. The medium rare steak arrived well done but after an hour waiting I just had to eat something!!! The girl who delivered that dish to the table announced it as a 'medium rare something' because she forgot what dish she was holding.... More

the service was very good and the staff very helpful. the only problem is that like many country places the drink prices are very high. they say its because of freight, but for a bottle of wine to be double the price of in the city, its just a bit steep

Nice local pub with typical pub menu, the pizza oven smelt amazing but we didn't have time to eat. Good selection of beers with nice ocean views

Beers are expensive and so is the food for what you get. The menu seems nicer/fancier/more interesting than most pubs,but the food is quite average. The pizzas are quite oily and the bases not great, and the main I had there was pretty tasteless even though it sounded amazing.

Heard so much good news about this place, but unfortunately we were really disappointed. Oily and tasteless salads and the seafood basket was a real let down. I'm sure the fish was fresh but quite some time ago. I've never seen smaller scallops; no kidding they were not much bigger than my thumbnail and way overcooked. At least the beer... More

The staff were friendly, despite being incredibly busy, and the venue itself had a lovely feel to it. However, the meals were just plain horrible! I had the quesadillas which were toasted on the outside and soggy/raw on the inside. There was supposed to be a pineapple salsa but I couldn't find any pineapple (unless it was the brown, tasteless... More

We were disappointed this time with our food and service, we holiday every year and usually go to the pub quite often. We went for dinner 11 in total most meals were good and some were very average. The service unfortunately wasn't that great either.
