Prices were reasonable and staff were friendly and attentive. The Hotel... More

Nice to see another pub in the area that does all day dining....especially on a Sunday afternoon. Fantastic service, very friendly staff and food was terrific. Will be back here again for sure. Keep up the great service!!!

We ordered 2 of the... More

Had lunch here during the Port Pirate festival. Even though they were extremely busy, our meals were still delivered to our outdoor table in a timely manner. The staff are friendly, and the meal was good.
