Very basic food for the money. The Risotto was like glue. Medium rare steak overcooked. Staff friendly but that's about all this place has going for it.

I ordered rump steak with chips and salad and top of butter chili sauce. Salad was old and prawn sauce was disgusting. I payed $30 for my meal. My gf ordered barramundi with hollandaise sauce chips and salad and it also was old and disgusting. Do not come here! Here is your Warning!!

We tried the pork roast - good serving and price but overcooked and largely tasteless. Good aspect and location.

I have never been disappointed with the food or service here. The Bowling Club is in the midst of a refurbishment but there was no problem with that.
