Good honest pub food. Got the garlic bread going off recommendations on tripadvisor, wife thought it was great but really, how good can garlic bread be??

Wife had flake with veges and chips (?!) and I had the twice cooked pork belly. Both meals were of generous proportions (not huge like some other reviews) and of a good quality.

All meals are reasonably priced and service sharp and attentive. Plenty of space in the bistro, although we were there on a Thursday night.

Friendly bar and nice dining room. Visited twice within a week and the standard was consistent. I have to agree with comments praising the garlic bread. Pricing is reasonable and the menu is varied with good choices. You cannot go wrong.

We come here every time we visit Portland. Reliably good quality food & service- honest delicious pub fare. Cozy enough for couples and a larger area for families.

Called in for lunch on a very cold day. Disappointed that the open fire was not alight and the dining room was quite cold. Despite this the service was very good and the food most acceptable. A rib eye [ bone on ] was cooked as requested accompanied by plenty of salad and good chips. The duck ragout with Turkish bread was excellent. Plenty of meat sitting in a very rich flavourful braise was just enough. Any more and it would have been too much. The steak at under $30 and the ragout at $24 was very good value. An Australian chardonnay at $20 was very good value at $20 rounded out a good meal. Will be back..

Arrived right on 6pm, open fire, white table cloths and people seated ready for dinner alerted me to the popularity of this venue. The garlic bread is delicious as were the fish dishes my husband and I had. Staff were helpful with menu choices and service was friendly and prompt. Regional wines on the menu and very reasonably priced. Value for money.
