Tasty pub food. It does get very busy in the warmer months with a free jumping castle for the kids on a Sunday. Get there early or book a table for a good location outside. The kids love running around on the huge grass area while you enjoy a nice cold beer from the brewery

Went here for lunch and were there at about 1:30pm - 2pm. We all ordered our meals at the same time, only 6 of us, and 2 meals came out in about 5 minutes and the rest coming out 15 minutes later then mine was about 25 minutes later and we ordered the same thing! Besides this though, this is a lovely place for lunch and have a good choice on the menu. I had the crab cakes which were delicious. Would go back again.

Stopped for a hearty lunch on a cold winter’s day.
Had eaten here a few years ago, and was anticipating another wonderful meal.
Food took a while to come out, but looked absolutely wonderful.
Wife ordered the Tempura Ale Battered Fish & Chips $19.90.
It looked wonderful, and tasted even better!
I ordered the Brewery Pot Pie - “Beef in our own Rich Beer Gravy with Creamy Mash, topped with Short Crust & served with Minted Peas & Gravy”.
Looked wonderful when it came out...unfortunately, the Short Crust was hard and dry, and needed a determined effort to break through.
The pie itself tasted beautiful, with big chunks of tender Beef in a glorious gravy. The Peas and Gravy came in separate pots, and once the Crust had been penetrated, could be added into the pie.
After a while, I thought it needed something...like Mash.
There was no Mash - either as a side nor in the pie itself.
On further inspection, there appeared to be a small dollop of Mash beneath the pie dish, presumably to stop the dish sliding around on the serving board - but no actual Mash to eat.
Hopefully, the lack of mash was an oversight, and I was too far through the meal before I noticed it was missing to comment on it.
Other than that, the meal was excellent, and the staff were very friendly.

Never will we be returning!
The chicken BLT’s tasted off! We took them back to get our money back... also there appeared to be a small piece of plastic in the kids Spaghetti Bolognaise!
Can’t believe this kind of thing still happens in this day and age! Hopefully we don’t get food poising!

Was looking forward to dinner here as heard a lot about it. Started with Duck Spring Rolls. Nice but couldn't taste any Duck. Chicken Parmagiana was my choice. Looked great with roasted cherry tomatoes ontop. Cut into it and it was all coating. Must have been triple coated. Way too much and soggy. Partner had fish of the day - Barramundi. She said it was OK but lacking fresh flavour. Pub grub that needs improving for these two selections.
