Met up with two other couples as it was a great location between where we all live. We had driven past many times but never stopped. Very pleasantly surprised, food was fabulous with huge servings, staff were friendly and attentive. Was well priced. Will definitely drop in again.

We had heard this little pub was being renovated & the menu too! How disappointed were we. The service was friendly & relaxed however the food choices were very limited unless you liked your food crumbed. If you're a vegan or vegetarian don't bother going. If you are after boutique beer not a lot of choice. This pub is all original & that's it's saving grace. I'm not a fan of stodgy food but this is a country pub that hasn't left the 1980's. That in itself might be worth a visit? Improve the menu & I may be back.

Great to see so many positive reviews for this amazing pub.
The staff are so friendly and focused on giving all their patrons the best experience. A fantastic menu and affordable prices means everyone can enjoy a hearty pub meal with your favorite beer or some of the regions best local wines.
Well done to Bruce, Dave and all of the staff...can't wait to see the dining area fully up and running so we can enjoy coming back again and again....keep up the good work and the positive reviews will keep coming from people who genuinely appreciate good hospitality from small businesses set on making a difference.

We decided to stop here for lunch. We were very surprised when we entered the bistro to find there were only about 8 tables. Luckily we were about to get a table for 2. Had to look on the bar for the menu. Extremely basic pub meals and not that cheap so we were hoping they were good sized serves and cooked well. My husband went up to order and was second in line. The person behind the bar was not only taking the orders but preparing the drink orders as well so service was very slow. My husband's turn is next and the person behind the bar walks past him to the next group of people. Not one in the group of 4 say they weren't next even though it was clear my husband was standing in front of them. So we up and left. Went across the road to the milk bar and got friendly service and a delicious HUGE hamburger. Two hamburgers for less than the price of 1 main meal and ready in minutes. Thank you Great Western Hotel for doing us a favour with your lousy service.
