Good venue

Been here 3 times, always enjoyed the food. Good choices however menu should change for variety. Nice open spaces, good for all types and big groups.

Every time I good to the Blue Gum I am impressed with the responsive, smiling service. Had a beer and burger last Friday and 2016 has started once again with impressive service. Food was good and the beer nice and cold. Keep up the excellent service.

We use to eat here a lot and have found that the standard of the food has dropped. Are meals were average and found it was quite expensive for what we got.

It's was a lovely atmosphere restaurant to go out for meal. It's so nice to go for dinner during winter as it has an open fire heating . You can cooked your steak of your choice on their large barbecue inside the restaurant and meet others who is doing the same. There lots of other choices of chef cooked meals... More

This hotel has to top any hotel we have ever stayed at - especially the Restaurant - the food is fantastic - cooked to perfection (my husband was a Chef and I had my own Restaurant - so we know good food). The Staff are genuine, very friendly and helpful. The accommodation is modest but very clean and reasonably priced... More

Love this down to Earth establishment. Family dinners, mothers group lunches. Rarely a fortnight goes by without a meal here. Very large dining area that does fill up quickly on the weekends during peak dinner times. It's an old favourite for local families. It's much quieter during the day time but the food is just as fresh and tasty. You... More

A great place to meet friends for leisurely lunch. Menu and food portions good, lots of room (unless you choose peak hours!) and usually parking is available. No self BBQ any more but chef does a good job! Good coffee & desserts too. Reasonable prices makes this a very popular hotel.

Lunch was disappointing for all 4 of us today. Friends had recommended to us after a few visits there last year, so we tried. Chicken burger fillet dry and hard like the bun itself. House Angus burgers under cooked, way too much lettuce and drowned with sauces to get some flavour happening I gather. Electronic advert on premises showed "$15... More
