Great atmosphere. Expected a good meal but we were sadly disappointed.

Our party ordered chicken, ribs, 2 steaks and 2 chicken nuggets and chips. Out of those meals the best ones were the chicken nuggets & chips and rib eye on the bone. One steak, ribs and chicken were all cold. Chicken and ribs were dry and steak was tough to eat. Seemed to have been pre-cooked and... read more

Terrible, terrible and more terrible!! Pasta- yuk, meat- tough, calamari- frozen crap, all batter and no calamari. This is not a good eating venue, they must be out there to make money and not thinking about what they serve up!!

Recently my family and I visited the restaurant part of this pub and were pleasantly surprised about the menu options for lunch. Whilst the prices were a smidgen higher than other pubs, the food was profoundly better. Large portions, some of us couldn't finish our meals! Great clean restaurant must try, a true gem in Tamworth.

Meals were massive. Lady asked if there was anything wrong with my pasta as I had literally eaten a quarter of it. I said no & she gave me a doggy bag & I had it for dinner the next night & it was still a big meal (& I usually eat a decent sized meal).

If you are a schnitzels, steaks, ribs and chips type person then Joe Maquires may be for you. If you prefer anything different, you will be very disappointed. The grilled chicken salad with avocado dressing was very unappetising and I think it must of been prepared much earlier and pulled straight from the cold room. Rather expensive at $19.00 for...

We recently had a function there, the staff were lovely and very helpful. The food was great and a good time was had by all. We also have been there numerous times for dinners, the food there is fantastic & reasonably priced. Would recommend it to anyone!

Good pub food, and great music, during the Country Music Festival. We always go to Joe's when at the Festival.
