The food was great and the service was brilliant. The staff were all very friendly and polite with one even recommending his favourite desserts. It's a very accessible restaurant with a wheelchair entrance at the side and plenty of tables and space on the ground floor of the restaurant.

Have been to many Hog's Breath Cafés around Australia and this would be up there with one of the best. Nice building in the main street and staff were helpful and attentive. Had the prime rib and both our steaks were good quality and well cooked. Went on a Sunday night and didn't have a reservation for a group of... More

The service here was great. We were promptly greeted, seated, served and fed. The staff were very sensitive to our needs and worked well with us to get the kids settled and occupied. After a long day on the road I felt like they were an extended support network who joked with the kids and their conversation was friendly and... More

Went there with husband and two small children. The kids pasta was ok but I had over cooked chicken wings, the ranch salad with raw potato, my husband had calamari and felt something dripping on his leg which turned out to be a pool of oil. Service was fine but could not make up for the food.

We had a nice evening meal, with a good choice of mains & entrees. We didn't get to try the deserts as we were full. If you are a small eater try the entrees instead of a main as I found it enough with a some garlic bread. The service is great and the staff always helpful.

We dine at Hog's Breath on numerous occassions and the best things are, service and quality of food. In the main service is good, friendly and fast. Meals are consistant so you know at each visit what you will get.
