Top rate local Pub

Always well patronised and always friendly prompt service, this is the family friendly venue for the northern suburb of Hornsby shire. The venue is well spaced out and has a relaxing modern traditional décor.

We have eaten many times at The Blue Gum and every time the food has been excellent. It is always the same and never varies whether it is a Steak Sandwich or a Steak, always cooked to perfection. The staff there are always friendly and go out of their way to help

Absolutely love this place. Cook your own steaks if you wish but the chef cooked meals are great as well. We come here quite a bit and always consistently good. Highly recommend.

‘Classic Aussie suburban pub’ is probably the phrase that best sums up the Blue Gum. The front bars have been renovated but the family-friendly rear section with it’s huge dining area looks pretty much the same as it did 15-years ago & certainly could do with a refresh too. Entry for the restaurant is easiest from the rear, which is... More

This pub is staffed by uni students who haven't got a clue what they are doing behind the bar. In fairness to them they lack direction from the manager who seems to float along in his own little world. To be perfectly honest I don't think he would know he had a bus up his ar5e unless somebody got off.... More

They know what they are doing in terms of foods, serving size is good. However we found them overpriced for a Bistro, lack of services, air-con was partially off at a 28+ degrees afternoon/night. There are absolutely no services, you can expect more services from a Macs, and all of their staffs got this funny attitude, maybe because they are... More

Four of us came for a meal on a Saturday night - the place was packed. With bare wooden floors, no discernible sound proofing on the ceilings or walls and a couple of function rooms which, although they look like they could easily be closed off with doors they were open to the main room and this led to a...

Last time I went here, the food wasn't awesome, the service was pretty poor and I recommended patrons be prepared to cook their on steaks when it is busy if they wanted them cooked a particular way. It was busy on Saturday night so that is exactly what my partner and I did with the following benefits: we saved 12... More

The baby chairs are horribly dirty. Instruct your staff to clean the chairs or add to existing cleaning schedule. As for table cleaning instruct your staff not to spray the table. instead spray the towel to ensure over spray isnt sprayed onto your customers in the line of fire. Food and atmosphere is good.
