Always consistent

It's always nice coming here with the family. I often have the eye fillet & mushroom sauce & never fails me. My son has the ribs that are very tasty & it's close to my daughters boarding school. It is always busy every time we come here which is a positive thing for when looking for somewhere to... read more

This used to be excellent food and atmosphere. Atmosphere slowly diminishing. I ate here at least once a month and you could always bank on the quality, variety and consistency. The change to the restaurant is really noticeable and since having very ordinary meals there three times in a row with my two adult sons (both of the same opinion),... More

We dined at the bistro today and were very impressed with the food coming out if their busy kitchen. We shared the chicken Caesar, lamb skewers (amazing!), calamari & grilled asparagus with feta & almonds. It was all super tasty & well presented and ready quickly despite how busy they were. Can recommend!

I've been eating at the blue Gm for 20+ years and the food keeps getting better. Whilst only a Bistro the food is as good as many better restaurants. I recommend it to anyone looking for good food at reasonable prices. Whilst they don't have Waitstaff the Bar Staff and Bistro Staff are very pleasant.

Standard pub fare in a standard pub environment. Went there for a club event. Good place but nothing special. Parking available behind the building. But can he full if football matches are being played across street.

This is a great pub for small or large numbers. The food is always good and I love the open fire in winter. This pub has a great vibe and the staff are always friendly and helpful when booking. You can book or just turn up. Always somewhere to rely on

I enjoyed a pork belly pizza and a glass of wine in front of the open fire after an overnight 12 hr shift! A great experience and a lovely waiter who cleared my table when I was done. Thankyou, Blue Gum, for being an equal opportunity employer. You are changing lives!

Parking is a nightmare during school term time, with schools around the pub. The food is good but expensive for a pub. Usually go to the Blue Gum with a group of friends, we find the best time to go is either Sunday night or through the week, Friday's and Saturday nights are very busy.

The Blue Gum Hotel, or Bluey as it is known by locals is our local hotel. It has quite a long history going back to 1800's but on Waitara site since the 1960's. A great place to meet family and friends, child friendly in bistro, a lovely open fire place to chat with friends or watch sport on TV screens.... More
