Food is consistently good and they have a good variety of beers and wines by the glass. But for value for money, check out the daily special. There is usually an item on the menu offered with a drink for less than its menu price.

Greeted by the barman who acted like an old fashioned Mein Host despite their being a queue. Decent pub grub. Good service. Quite impressed.

We stopped in at The Archer on the way to the cricket for a few beers and espresso martinis. Great service and a fantastic balcony to enjoy the sunshine.

We've visited twice since the new chef took over in September- his food features native and foraged foods - combinations which you wouldn't expect to work - for example a deconstructed brownie, pear and winter melon - all together it's like a symphony for your taste buds ! Do yourselves a favour and try this young chefs wonderful food creations... More

Had a meal in the restaurant with the recently appointed chef who is introducing exciting food that's full of flavour. You can get the usual pub food here but we went specifically for a treat in the restaurant section of this beautiful historic establishment. The Summer Menu was on it's first night and if this is any indication of what's... More

Went in for a cold drink with a mate. Asked for there signature Archer ale and was told that they weren't making it anymore due to the fact that they were under new management. Bought two normal beers and paid $19. Well I was shocked. Two "pints" should not cost this much I said and was told it was the... More
