Stopped here for a drink so we could sit and look at the river. An atmosphere of relaxation and not be in a hurry to go anywhere soon. Families having lunch inside and out. Nothing pretentious, a good pub, well maintained. Nice lounge area and plenty of parking. Don't be in a hurry when visiting.

Not normally a pub person, but this is just a great family friendly place to go. Kids playground, free wi-fi, great food, brilliant views, wonderful location right on the river and live entertainment on Sunday afternoon. A real find, will come back.

Popped in for look at Shoalhaven Heads and checked out this pub for lunch. Yes it was fairly quiet..customer wise. Lunch specials of flathead and chips and chicken schnitzel with chips were both excellent.The lemon lime and bitters drink we all had was one of the best. Normally I stop at Gerringong for a meal but think I have just...

We were with two other couples from Sydney who drove down after work....what a great night. Food was great. Oysters fresh, burgers well presented and plenty, grilled barramundi cooked to perfection. A hot night, the view of the river and out to sea was magic! All in all our night was exactly what you would expect from a coastal destination...

Enjoyed a superb dinner with 2 families, everyone loved their meals. The pub is really impressive, great decor in keeping with the area. Perfect for summer with the wide open doors facing the river, and would be equally for winter with that big wood heater near the big screen. And then the entertainment started... fantastic duo who even let 2...

We visited as a large family group & were told we would wait for an hour for food. Happy to wait as we were occupied with our group, however, it certainly wasn't worth the wait. Who can ruin cheese and ham pizza? Kids schnitzel & chips? Nothing, except the chips were edible. We then, starving, ordered ice cream, only for...

Rooms needs a good clean & maintenance. Toilet leaks, shower drips, blinds don't work, no spoon to stir coffee. No information about motel or area. Air cond was filthy and extremely noisy. No reception to check in, just go to the sports bar, where the staff don't know how to check you into a room!!! If we had only been...

Dropped by for a bite to eat & drink. A great place in a great spot. Although a bit tired looking on the outside, the inside is modern & spacious. The decor is great, with entertainment, bar & restaurant. Food was very good & staff were very pleasant. Good to see the outside clearly separates the smoking & eating areas.

Loved my stay. Loved that it was dog friendly. Loved that there was a 24hr off leash dog beach across the road. You could easily spend all day around the area. Riding bikes, walking, hangin with your dog, kayaking. An awesome stay and holiday for dog lovers!
