“Great service, tasty food and free wifi”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

We ate dinner twice here while staying in Franz Josef. The service was very welcoming and attentive, the meals prices were reasonable and the food was really tasty. The vegetable soup went down particularly well in the cooler evenings. We sat out on the covered deck, near the gas flame fire which was lovely.

“Great pub food”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Other than the noise of the helicopters eat outside. The food is plentiful and tasty and the service is good. We so enjoyed it we ate there twice for lunch.

“Best place to enjoy a drink in Franz Josef”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

We visited The Landing too many times to mention in our short visit to Franz Josef, it was a great place to sit, relax and watch life go by in beautiful Franz Josef.
The staff were brilliant, very friendly.
They do a cocktail happy hour (which may have prompted my return...), the food was really good, portions are massive and reasonably priced.
Having free wifi for customers was really useful as it seemed to be the only place to catch up with everybody back home while enjoying a cocktail and some sunshine.

“Kids food poor.”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Kids food was tough and dry, appeared to have just been reheated in the microwave. However, our meal was better. Lovely staff, quick service. Good central location.
