    We dined last night and just wanted to say how impressed we were with not only the amazing service (dining) but the quality of the food was simply stunning! Food arrived hot and fast - Good serving size and well priced. It would've been great to see some local beers on tap but totally understandable considering the times we are in at the moment. Thankyou for making our mini vacation memorable.

    One of our favourite haunts for lunch. By far the best salt and pepper squid in town! Would have given food perfect score but my partners steak was a little better than just ok. Pepper sauce was great. Staff were friendly and obliging. We'll be back.

    Is a pub style atmosphere, and suitable for the food and venue. Nice quality food, and decent size serves, even the Senior serves are a good size.

    The staff did their best , at least in the dinning room but the kitchen let them down. Son had fish and chips, generous serving was the only plus. Hubby and I shared Meat Shareboard, kebabs good, thai salad resonable but served on paper!! Ribs meh, chicken wings ,very spicy. I'm not much of a chilli wimp but they were too hot for me. To top it off a/c was set on freezing and apparently unable to be changed!!!.

    The Seafood Platter was amazing and a very generous portion. Everything tasted good except that we did not like the way the scallops were served in a sourish liquid. Would have preferred the plain ole simple seared scallops. The Scotch Fillet was also very good. Done Medium Rare exactly as we asked for whereby 4 out of 5 places seem to constantly fail on us. Service was also top notch ! If only we live in Busselton ...........
