Dropped in for late lunch

Dropped in for late lunch on July school holidays, most other restaurants were closed at 2:00. Friendly accommodating staff. Ordered 8 meals plus entrees & it was quick & efficient service & we all enjoyed our meals.

I live locally and have dined & drank at Hotel on many occasions. I have always received great service and prompt-tasty food. Tonight I went in for the discount steak night and it was great quality, whilst only being $10 plus extras. Thought it was about time I showed my appreciation and gave them a review- cheers Hotel!

Monday Steak Night - middle of winter and busy so you know it's a great place to eat. Terrific steak, great service from very helpful waiters and relaxing rustic environment. Lamb shanks also were great too. Will definitely be back.
