Just another pub meal really. The place was not busy mid week and the meals took a long time to arrive. The pasta dish was small, the thai beef salad was enormous and the chicken schnitzel was reasonable.The chips with the chicken were cold.

We had not been to the restaurant for about 6 months and decided to get together with friends for lunch. When we last ate there the food was typical pub fare; good food, generous servings and reasonable prices. It seems the management has changed and so has everything else. Prices are now high, the food is poorly prepared, the serving... More

We chose this restaurant as it had a kids area, which was small inside (big outside but cold!) but did the trick! Lovely roaring fire and good bistro pub feel. We were also pleased when we arrived to see Fridays had kids eat free. However our waitress charged my husband for our son and it was only when I questioned... More

Meals were mixed up in different plates, the rare steak was well done the well done was bleeding. The staff asked how our meal was, when we told her it wasn't good at all, she took our plates and walked away. No questions as to what was wrong with it at all. A big waste of time and money.

Went here on Anzac Day with the family and we all had gourmet schnitzels. Politely warned that food would take 40 minutes, but only after we had ordered and paid. 4 x bistro schnitzels cost $110! A bit steep I think. 4 x lemonades cost over $13. Food tastes nice, but I don't think it's worth the money.

Terrible experience. Waited a hour for a meal and still could not tell us when it would be ready. Told catering for a function took priority. Got full refund - no offer of free meal. What a waste of a night. Needed to get take away.

Visiting Dubbo we got a shopping docket which advertised this pub and $5 main course buying one full price mains. Nice surrounds, we perused a menu, but decided on steaks as there was a big sign saying " the best steaks in Dubbo". We had had excellent steaks at a different pub in Dubbo a couple of nights previously so... More

had lunch here and ordered the rump steak 300grams with veg, medium rare. Was cooked perfect and portion was more than enough. The service was friendly and the meal was quick to come out. All for only $24 , I see they have many specials on also on certain nights.

Visited Mac Inn on business. Stayed here many times over last 15years. Bistro is typical pub style food and menu. Steaks in the past have been top notch and good quality. This time though it was disappointing. I had the rib eye on bone. My steak had little bone attached and was chewy and didn't impress. A renewed focus by... More

Disappointing chicken carbonara! I love a good pasta but when the chicken is raw I think I will pass. The Chiefs really need to recap their cooking skills.
