Excellent lunch and very friendly service. We shared a grilled chicken sandwich on focaccia. Mango chutney, melted Brie, and Slaw made this an extremely tasty snack. Outside is very old world saloon. Inside was modern with very welcome air conditioning

We had dinner two nights in the Pub. Grilled fish the 1st night and steaks the 2nd. Both excellent. We ate at 5 pm, so all was quiet. Plenty of sports on the TVs. Friendly staff. We would highly recommend it.
