Pub food

Well it's not Michelin of course. It's a country pub primarily catering for locals and weekend trippers. Didn't try accommodation but had three meals in dining room. Good range of pub food, average price and OK for quality. Couldn't complain about its appearance, delay or costs. Service from a... read more

My third visit here in a few years. Previously good experiences, warm room and happy atmosphere. It was previously good for a quick meal when driving through town and not wanting to stop for too long. This time was disappointed with the food quality. Plate was half full of chips with a few salad leaves. Food was overcooked. Counter service... More

We went there for lunch for a large group and two people's meals were forgotten. That in itself I can forgive- it is just a pub and they were busy. What I really have issue with is the appalling manner in which this was handled. I told the person behind the counter who said she would tell the waitress. Nothing... More

Had lunch here on a weekend day, not overly busy and very inexpensive. I just has a Asian Entree plate ($13) which was huge, 6 x mini samosa, 4 x calamari rings, 6 x mini spring rolls and 4 x dim sims with dipping sauce and couldn't get through it all. They had Toohey's Old on tap at $3.40 for... More

Large old Pub, the time we went was on a long weekend and was crowded. Long waits to order food, and food was very average. I ordered Chicken and asparagus, chicken over cooked and 2 pieces of asparagus. I am sure there is better around the area.

I have stayed here a few times over many years because the price is very affordable and the rooms are clean and tidy, as are the bathrooms - shared or ensuite. Unfortunately however, they seem to have issues with maintaining a consistent hot water temperature for the showers - so be prepared that you may not be very lucky to... More

The restaurant part has a very good family atmosphere and it suits children very well. There is a huge fire and several television screen, the food is excellent. They have a 'family night' with a cheap menu and the food is just as good.

Just had to turn away 2 chicken parmigiana's as they were both raw and then I swapped for a steak - mostly gristle, lumpy gravy and limp salad. I'm a local. Very disappointed - Won't b back in a hurry. Wait staff lovely but need new management in the kitchen. Pick up your act!
