My son and I went to the Jolly Good Farmer for dinner on a Thursday night during the school holidays. There were plenty of dishes on the menu that were tempting to both of us. We were seated promptly and served just as quickly. Our...More

This restaurant was the closest eatery within walking distance to the motel we were staying at on a bitterly cold evening. It was very busy, but we were promptly seated at a table. The service from the staff was very good and friendly. The menu...More

The staff was friendly and efficient and the food was standard pub grub but enjoyable. It was cold outside but nice and warm inside around the fire.

Sunday night dinner with my son and my brothers family. Nice selection of beers and a surprisingly thoughtful wine list. Standard pub fare some of which was blah e.g. calamari and burgers. However, my brother and I both had porterhouse steaks which were very good...More

Themed like an English Pub, 15 beers on tap, always busy, warm and cosy in winter, meals are pub fare, nothing wrong with that. Prices are about 25% cheaper than the bar/restaurants in town. Worth checking out even its just for a drink.
