Nice atmosphere and we wanted to love it but it was very very slow. We waited over 50 mins for lunch and watched half a dozen tables order after us and receive their meals long before ours. They didn’t indicate any mix-up so maybe just...bad luck but not a great service experience. My guess is they prioritise larger groups and tours over lunch.More

We ate here for dinner on each of the three nights we were in Bruny. The food was very good & the staff very friendly & helpful. The restaurant is licensed

This is the only place on the island that provides a pub vibe and evening meals each night of the week. The staff are friendly. If you are looking for where the locals hang, this is it. The menu and meal sizes are good, the...restaurant area is good for families. As per the rest of the island the meals are a little more expensive than mainland Tas for its quality in my opinion. They play some good all round music in the bar area, drinks menu is good too. We booked a unit with kitchen facilities, the accommodation allocated to us was basic but clean and comfortable, however, we were disappointed to find it a good 15 minute walk along an unlit gravel path and we’re in the nearest unit to the pub. Overall I won’t come back to Bruny it’s very overrated, expensive to stay and disappointing.More

Visited here for a late lunch and were very pleased. The stand outs were the very generous meal sizes and their quality. The most impressive of our broad selection (there were 10 of us), was their Seafood Chowder. It was soo good that we bought...it as takeaway also and had it for later dinner. Delicious and excellent value.More

Great food, great atmosphere, friendly and courteous and very helpful staff, what more can you ask for except a fantastic place. And it has that too. If you are in the vicinity, you’re mad not to go there!!

Wow, what awesome, wholesome pub meals and such great value for money. We are here twice in our ten days on the island and the quality and value for money of these meals is just fantastic. My husband and I learnt by our second visit...that we would share one meals between the two of us. The chicken parmigiana was the size of two thirds of the plate. Super tasty, service was fast. Would definitely dine here againMore

This places food was amazing! The food was the best I’d had from a hotel, I had the seafood mix grill and my wife the lamb shank. The sea food was so tasty and fresh and the lamb with the honey was delicious! Local and...fresh.More

Went two nights running. The quality and value of these meals is exceptional. The seafood is locally sourced and delicious. Try the seafood platter for two or the seafood chowder. As I said, exceptional
