After arriving and meeting up with friends I went to the bar to get a couple of drinks and was greeted with “Where’s your mask?!” Not a Hello first? In the process of telling him I don’t wear one, he kept walking and came back...with a box of masks, I tell him I have an exemption, he snapped at me saying “Well why didn’t you say that straight away!” My reply was “You didn’t give me a chance you walked away”. He proceeded to walk away again and serve other people who only just came up to the bar, ignoring me. I said as such and he came over and had a go at me! Later the same guy ( the new bar manager apparently) told my group that we had leave, my friend questioned him as to why and he said by association, we had only been there for 20 mins !!!??? I later found out he said exactly the same thing to another table. He didn’t ask any of my group or others for a Vax Cert or check in code and there was 11 of us. A disgusting way to treat people, we won’t be coming back! Also the restaurant menu is terrible, it has gone downhill big time!More

Very disappointed by the pasta meal that I had at the restaurant tonight. A pumpkin and mushroom Orchiette It was sloppy and no taste. I couldn’t see or taste any pumpkin. $27 for something very ordinary.

Beautiful old building, nice outlook from the deck. This pub has a good atmosphere and staff were friendly.

I came here with a wedding group on a Sunday. Our group of about 30 guests ordered lunch and many drinks. While I was lining up to order a meal, the time clicked over to 2:31pm. I was rudely told by staff that one minute...past 2:30 was too late to make an order at the kitchen. The licensee, James, proceeded to be rude and laughed at me when I expressed my surprise. This venue does not deserve your business.More

I used to be a regular at the restaurant and was always a nice basic meal with friendly staff. Since COVID things have changed dramatically, I have tried the food on three separate occasions in the last 8 months hoping it improves but only is...worse each time. The staff are very dismissive and don't tell new diners they have to order at the counter, the wait staff should tell diners or at least have something written on the menu about ordering at the counter. I tried the restaurant again last night (and will never go back again), it was a pasta dish floating in the water it was cooked in with a sprinkling of rocket which was yellow instead or green on the top and the stalk of raw fennel. I took a taste and returned it to the counter and asked for a refund which was hesitantly brought to the table after half an hour. Such a shame, the locals would love to have a pub with an inspiring menu and friendly staff. Food is overpriced and menu is still bland, need a good chef in there with some imagination and wait staff who seem interested.More

Fantastic old pub with several different areas to eat and drink. Super friendly staff, reasonable prices and great food. Honestly one of the best pubs i've been to in a long time.

What a shame, from the last time we visited to yesterday. We made a booking via website that we never got any reply from. Zero customer service. The menu was a very big disappointment and the extremely over priced for pub food that you pay...for before it arrives. This is not a restaurant with table service, and then when you do ask the staff for simple thing like salt or pepper, it’s like you asked them to cut off a limb.... the food was of very poor quality - the steak was very tough cut of meat. And we left all of it, ate the potato so for $40.00 we got 3 small potatoes worth eating, no salad or vegetables When we let the lady know the steak was bad. Nothing was done about it. Also the fish and chips was very greasy and I had to remove the batter - Do not recommend this place to anybody it’s a real shame as we used to love coming here and enjoying drinks and lunch -More

This was pub food at its worst, tasteless and overpriced, have a drink but don’t eat there. Front house staff friendly.

This is probably the worst service experience I have ever had. Waiting forever to place our order, not being told we have to order at the counter and a fairly unpleasant waitress. We waited so long for our main course that we were then given...5 minutes to order desert. 🤦‍♀️ very begrudgingly gave us some cutlery and serviettes. This was a bit similar to our last visit to the restaurant but has deteriorated even further. The bar staff were the exception. They were cheerful and helpful.More

Very disappointing experience compared to a few years ago. Although the food was delicious, the bar staff are RUDE, especially the female who let everyone know she really didn't want to be there working. Long queues for drinks and food, felt like you were an...inconvenience. Such a shame as a lovely area and buildingMore
