Cheap chicken parmy

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... read more

For the price we paid and there service and food we got it was not worth it. Two of my children waited almost 30 min for their meals after we got ours and one of these where the same as they had ordered, I had to go ask what was happening, no one came to tell us there was 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.

This place has changed hands fairly frequently over the years and I've been there for the last 15 of them. The atmosphere has changed every time because of new management. If you are like me and don't appreciate multi national corporations taking over in your town,,,,,,,,,,,,,steer clear, Hogs breath would be a better bet for a good value meal. Some... More

Hotel and toilet were clean loved the staff but have to say menu and food boring and cant say the pesto chicken was very pesto. Oil ring around the food. Other peoples meals - Steak enveloped in gravy what happened to letting the meat speak for its self.

A busy Tavern, and it is easy to see why! The drinks are reasonably priced, a solo singer adds some atmosphere, and there are nice specials. On this occasion I selected the sizzling pork ribs special. It was the right choice! Ordered at the counter, and about ten minutes later the meal was ready to be delivered. I was warned... More

My partner and I decided to go here for dinner....BIG MISTAKE. Dinner arrived and we started to eat....momentarily and realised that what we ordered was not what we got! As soon as I realised - I alerted the staff. Their response was "well so what....what you got was more expensive than what you ordered" - When I explained that I... More
