Great pub/buffet food

We stayed in Mount Gambier as part of a charity bicycle ride from Adelaide to Melbourne. We dined in the function room at the back of the hotel which was perfect for our group of 30. Great pub/buffet food for our large group and very welcoming, friendly staff.

Came here for a few night for dinner.. everyday there is a special. no fuss decor and can be full some nights. there is a salad bar with nothing too special but at least its there. The most disappointing part of our visit here was the sight of mice in the corner near the heater. Management really need to get... More

The food is pretty terrible, however it isn't expensive and the staff were very friendly so this rates as 'poor' rather than 'terrible'.

We went to this place as it was advertized as delivering tasty food. Ok - agreed tasty is subjective but imho the food is greasy, salads have seen better times and the value for money ration is below average. Have seen better for less money ...

The menu was typical pub food, with a smallish salad bar. The pub was busy (always a good sign), but the kitchen handled it well. The food was nothing special, but without significant delay

Not expensive, especially with 20% discount through hotel offer. Staff very obliging and helpful with my gluten-free requirements. Meals tasty and good size portions.

I like everything about this hotel. It is a welcoming place with a wide cross section of clientele. It serves great beer that is poured with expertise. The food is not not cheap pub, rather top notch unpretentious hotel dining. I am not a local so my expereince covers a number of years. What really impresses me is that I... More

We had a Surf & Turf and a T Bone Steak. Both were over cooked, even the Steak which we ordered raw was not bloody inside anymore. The meat tasted like it was frozen once before and had way too much fat on it. The sauce provided was undefinable. Fries were just doughy...

I was lucky enough to have one of the nightly specials, Scotch Fillet steak, which was only $15. I thought this was exceptionally cheap. Not only was it cheap, but it was the most tender steak I have ever had out. It was perfectly cooked (Medium), and just melted in your mouth. I chose to have it with chips and... More
