Anyone from AUS knows the drill, rock up for lunch and they have lunch specials. Usually with an all you can eat salad bar and a replenishing supply of buttered bread rolls. Then the pensioners roll in at dead-on 12pm (they're not loud or annoying or anything, just slow). It is very nice inside, they have comfortable chairs and refined,... More

Charming old pub beautifully kept with a touch of class, enjoyed the comfy leather lounges while basking in the warmth of the open fire. Great way to pass a Cold Saturday Afternoon.

This place got very nice meals, we tried a few different meals and all of them tasted fantastic, mushroom gravy was the best I ever tasted! I gave 4 stars for this restaurant because they had wobbly table outside, other than that highly recommended.

Had dinner here on the recommendation of a local after a poor experience elsewhere. The front bar is under renovation, and a new manager has been appointed. Had dinner in the bistro, took a local cider based on the Barman's advice, turned out to be a good choice. Had a porterhouse steak, which was PERFECT. The pepper sauce was delicious,... More
