Outstanding meal and value with excellent service. A warm atmosphere (literally also - three fireplaces at least) where the staff were super friendly. An upmarket feel with none of the pretentiousness of some places. Best of all... The food. Seafood chowder was to die for....More

Under the new owner, I have eaten there 4 times and apart from the first time the quality of food has decreased. The last time —a few weeks ago —the meal was completely lacking in flavour. It was nursery food! My friend's dish was similar...More

Our menu is ever changing reflecting the wonderful seasonal produce Tasmania and our kitchen garden has to offer. We craft our menu depending on the season and what our local producers and suppliers have on hand. Our food is honest fresh and British Pub style, hearty and warming in Winter and light and fresh in the Summer months.
