What People are Saying

“The Food is Amazing”

It’s a classic small town pub with an English influence. The food is amazing and the service is top notch. They have Guinness on tap and quite a few local IPA’s.

“Great Place”

Great place for a meal or a drink. Staff are friendly, informative and, when there is a break in the traffic, they are a mine of information about the history of Lake Tyers and the surrounding countryside. “
