Pub Food at Bluey

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

We for a family catch up for Saturday lunch. No issues with parking. Great choices of meals on the menu at various prices. The meals we had were a great size and very tasty. Highly recommend

We had the special lamb burger, special beef cheek, prawn Hawaiian pizza and chicken schnitzel. Everything was OK, edible, but each dish lacked 'something' - just not quite the taste sensation we'd hope for given the prices of the dishes. We just wish station street bistro was open on Sundays :(

Initially we booked for the Terrace as we hadn't seen each other for 25 years and I was told it would be quieter. The day before the event I called to check the booking as i hadn't heard from them to be told a party of 50 had taken the Terrace and we had been put in the middle of... More

Had a nice meal with extended family. Was a bit of a queue for service but food didn't take too long considering we ordered at the busiest time of the night. Friendly staff, clean room, food was good value. I had a good pizza which had a generous layer of pepperoni. Would definitely go back.

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

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.
