Lovely attentive and friendly staff got us to a great start, meals (Battered Flat Head and Chicken Caesar)arrived promptly and looked great, plenty on the plates for the price and very well presented. Food was tasty enough, but then I hit the grit, I would have scored them a lot better but my salad was quite gritty at times which... More

We did not realise we had to book for meals, but judging by the crowd we wanted to try the food. Made a booking and prices are reasonable. The food was good and even though they were busy we were not rushed. We went back 2 days later for a drink.

Easy to book into and had a good selection of meals available, including catering for a child with allergies. Drink prices were reasonable and judging by how buisy it was, the RSL appears to be very popular with both locals and tourists.
