This is a pub style place to eat. There is a wide range of the usual pub food and drink. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Ideal for families or people travelling on a budget

2 different days we tried to go because of the reviews and both times although it said open from Google and their hours there was no one in sight. Very disappointing because it looked like a good place to eat

Signature Fajita dish did not disappoint, Pepe Rump Fajitas were amazing. Prawn Salad was also great. Service could be improved.

Maybe if you are from Oz this is a good choice. But this is not in any way shape or form tex-mex. The service was pretty poor on a slow afternoon and I would not recommend this place to anyone in the area.
