Great place for family gatherings, free kids meals on Sundays

I hadn't been to the Great Northern Hotel in years and was pleasantly surprised - still the same lovely woodwork, snooker tables and outdoor garden area. You can cook your own steak for $13.50 and it comes with a self serve salad bar. On Sundays kids eat free with two free kids meals for every... read more

We went to the Great Northern based on its reputation for good food. Sorry to say we found it over priced to say the least. The quality was poor and several dishes came out cold. Can't say we will be back.

Soft spot for this one as I first met my wife here. Have been back a couple of times for dinner in the last month, once with a bunch of friends and once to avail of their Foxtel for a game. Staff are usually great, but the menu is standard pub fare. Pies and schnitzel are nice. Lose a star... More

Ordered the Chicken parmi. Options were chips, salad or mash potato. Somewhat taken aback when plate turned up with just the Chicken Parmi on it and nothing else! Sure there is a salad bar but jeez a few chips guys please? Cost $22, no thanks.

good menu, maybe a little over priced, the cook-yourself steaks looked great. Beautiful old pub, friendly staff.

Beautiful old pub inside with ornate wood paneling and some memorabilia around to dining room. You can either cook you own steak, sausage or fish or have the chef prepare it. Has 3/4 pool tables and a good range of beers on tap. Salad was warm and a bit ordinary and the steaks reasonable. Indoor or outdoor dining is available.... More

This place is enormous! Food was good value but nothing special. You can cook your own if that's your thing. Not much interaction with staff but they were ok. If you want to go to a pub this has everything you need, pool tables, outdoor seating, the lot. If you want a good meal out, I'd go elsewhere.
