The pub has comfortable setting both out-doors and indoor. The staff are friendly and efficient. It caters for large parties as well. Our last two patronage were both parties of 10 including a child. The steaks (cook to your own taste) were good quality and even better if you go on days where there are specials on. All in all,... More

This place has become a regular meeting place for friends and work colleagues for Friday lunch. Good pub food selection and you can cook your own steaks as well. A generous salad bar which is complementary with some meal choices. The veal schnitzel, bangers and mash, beer meat pie and fish and chip are some of my favourites. The GN... More

The pub is in our neighboorhood, the building looks nice enough, wanted to go there for some time. Especially since they constantly advertise locally. But what the ads don't tell you, is that you have to cook your own. So we went there, and was presented with a large container full of raw meat. And we promptly left. I'm not... More

On Wednesdays the Great Northern Hotel holds one of the best pub quizzes I've ever been to. There are plenty of questions, special rounds and lots of opportunities to win free drinks and money. Biggest team gets a round of drinks - so call your friends and pack the quiz out. You can make your own steak too - pick... More

We have been going to the Great Northern for 12 years and we always enjoy it. The food is great although the schnitzels are definitely smaller than they used to be. The menu is great value and the food is delivered quickly. My only complaint is that if you choose to eat outside that you need to be prepared to... More

We enjoyed our meal even though it was a Friday evening in November. The outdoor area is best avoided as it is both smoky and noise. Most of the clientele are young people and exuberant at the weekend. We selected sirloin steaks and cooked them ourselves on the grill. This was novel for us but we enjoyed the experience. A... More

Call me old fashioned, but it is ages since i have been anywhere with so much smoke. I was part of a large group of friends having Sunday lunch, so we ate outside. Big mistake. The table next to us was full of bogans, all smoking. Perhaps it was a convention for the dying breed of people who still smoke... More
