It’s a shame that the owners have tried to tempt us in with a Grab One deal and then served a terrible meal. Will we go back….no!
By the way the website says meals cost between $15 and $25. They need to update that information because my chicken was about $29 on the menu.
We were told we can only order one starter and they gave two choices, garlic cob and mussels, which was never mentioned on the deal. I love mussels and my partner didn’t eat them, we ordered garlic cob, which was microwaved and did not have any taste, no salsa or sauces with it.
Main and desert was nice, only one choice of wine which was nice anyway.
I will not go back even if I see a deal because of the misunderstanding of the starter, such a shame as I could do a group meeting but my partner disagrees:-(
Over all, not happy.
We had the garlic cob for Entree. For Mains, My wife chose the Steak & Kidney pie with mash. I had the sundried tomato and feta cheese stuffed chicken fillet. My wife said it was the best pie she had ever eaten. I really enjoyed the stuffed chicken too.
The decor brought back lots of memories.
Looking forward to our next visit.
The booked table was in already for us and the service great. We chatted and ate at our leisure with the kids playing, with the bar’s toys, around us. The price was very reasonable – particularly given the amount the kids drank – and the food was tasty (I can recommend the Angus Steak open sandwich & the calamari) and reasonably generous in size.
All in all another great time had by all.
