Really enjoyed the curry and a great bottle of wine. Nice friendly pub which was quite busy with families, couples and friends. Good food and a good atmosphere.

Called on here with family after the pantomime and got great food & service. Unlike some many other places the standards are still high here. If I was to make one remark it'd be to increase the portions of... More

Me and a friend had a wonderful meal at the Mount Oval recently. The atmosphere was lovely, everything down to the lighting was well thought out and  just right for a Sunday evening meal. Portion sizes were beyond generous, and it was the best value for money we have had in a long time. I had the chicken wrap, my... More

This is a great local bar. It has fantastic food and a good atmosphere. There is music at the weekends and very busy for matches. Outside seating to soak up the rays is plentiful.

The pub was large, with indoor and outdoor seating areas. Excellent pricing for the generous servings. Dog friendly. The fish and chips were beer battered and delicious. Server was friendly and outgoing. Ambiance was wonderful with private nooks, or public seating around fireplaces.
