Last time we ate there we ended up with steelo on our roast and to top it off management commented we were lucky cause we didnt get charged for that only our meals and simply laughed it off.

Poor customer service, Over priced and no flavour poorly cooked. Missing ingredients from both delux burgers - did not get what we paid for. Advised the moron waiter who has never spoken a to us beyond calling the sum total at the cash register in six visits over four months and his reply was "well it is a new menu... More

It's a pity that the decor/location is so relaxed and convenient. The reason that that is a pity is because the service is always terrible and the food is hardly ever any better. You have a menu for a reason so you can prep what is in it and make sure you have enough of those ingredients for your service........ More

I met up with a mate from work for a beer and lunch at Palmerston Tavern. I got the chicken parmy for $11.95. It was a very basic parmy with bland chips and salad, but good value for price. Wouldn't want to pay any more though. Wont go out of my way to go back unless im looking for a... More

We ate at this hotel for a lunch and also a dinner. The food service is quick and the portions are large, which helps deal with the elevated dining prices in Darwin. The staple fare menu caters to all tastes. The restaurant is a large open space so if it is busy it can be loud. Parking is easy to... More

The prawn and chicken laksa is a must and most of the dishes we've tried here have been great for a nice price. Kids room is a bit loud, but the live entertainment has always been great too.

Went there for midweek lunch. Found this place to have nice dining setting and atmosphere. Good for families. The food servings were good as you'd expect from a pub or tavern. We did notice the service could be improved. The greeting was luke warm with not much enthusiasm. Other than that, we enjoyed our meal.
