Terrible food, steak too tough to cut or eat, very overcooked, prawns also tough and overcooked. Tried the restaurant early evening, they were not busy, just one large table next to us. Service equally bad. However, cost of food was refunded from bill.

Excellent rump steaks, cooked exactly as you request. The staff are very friendly and the menu is varied. We eat there at least a couple of times a week, which speaks for itself. Had one of the best pieces of battered cod the other week....More
