Improve this listing
Ranked #228 of 445 Restaurants in Hobart
Cuisines: Australian
Dining options: Reservations
Description: Checked out Hotel menu on web, looked good, prices were reasonable. When we arrived at hotel for a meal the next day the prices on some items had changed and not just by a dollar or two up to $8 difference. This was not the real problem, although it was steep. It was the Managers attitude, his body language and the fact that he rolled his eyes as he walked away and didn't really care when we brought the issue to his attention. The menu had been changed the week before and they hadn't updated the web. Now if Management behave like this they shouldn't expect much more from there staff. The staff were great. They were very helpful and pleasant.

We stopped here for dinner on our last night. Great food and decent prices and quick service turn around. Great for families on a budget.

Loved the fact that this tavern was on site and I didn't have to go far for dinner. The food was good and great value for money as well

How hard is it for a huge restaurant to keep some in the fridge. As part of our Mums group we've been wandering down here religiously to lunch and coffee. Although ive asked on every occasion whether they've got it in now, they haven't. What a shame that this place still can't quite get it right!

my husband had the vegetable curry. Came out with a giant piece of pappadum on top, was mostly steamed pumpkin with coconut milk over top, pumpkin was dry so the coconut had soaked in. He really struggled with it and was a bit sick today. I had pasta which was a bit better but not a lot. It was expensive... More

Meals not tasty. Vegetables came out cold. One person's meal was so hot, their mouth was burnt. Asked for veg to be reheated, this didn't happen. Only one person enjoyed their meal, that night, out of four patrons.
