Has specials most nights but we tend to use the Thursday nite steak nite $28 for steak and a dink. The Sunday roast at $13 for small and $16 for large takes a lot to beat also.

Every now and then we walk along to enjoy a meal here. Always a warm welcome and a great meal. Last week it was a mid winter Christmas dinner. A full house and the band warming up.

We've come to this pub a lot over the years. Nice atmosphere, but it can get quite loud when music is on (I know, I'm showing my age). We'd go more often if the drinks were not so expensive.
