Ordered steak cooked well done with chips and salad. Steak was raw and salad tasted off. No presence of staff or management to deal with issues and attitude from the kitchen. Shame how it has slid downward.

Great location to have a drink and grab a meal. Food was good sized portions and tasty. Have been to this hotel a few time's over the years when we visit tweed head's and has improved immensely.

Great spot right over the water, lunch menu was good and the prices very reasonable. Ordered the ribs, so delicious with lovely vegetables. Will definitely go back.

Stopped by for a cold beer after checking out the Sunday markets. Relaxed atmosphere, the menu looked great but didn’t eat. Judging by the size of the meals leaving the kitchen, I’m thinking great value. Will be back soon for sure!

Pub is adjacent to marina with a lovely big verandah over the water. Service is friendly and efficient. A variety of dishes available. OK standard for a pub, but nothing remarkable.

Went for a luncheon; the deck and tables had not been cleared nor cleaned in some time; the advertised 'renovations under new management' was non-existent, as the deck was faded, scarce on paint/stain, the tables and chairs were old fashioned and the same as those...More
