Disappointing lunch

Went to lunch with another couple and ascsoon as we got there we were told that there were no pies or ribs asctheybhad been busy the day before. So we made our selection from the beer covered menus. One had mixed grill which was OK, another had salmon which was overcooked and the vegies were cold... read 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!

4 of us called in for lunch on Saturday. We all selected different meals and they were beautiful. Our order was taken straight away and delivered very quickly. The service was quick and friendly. We will definitely be calling in for lunch another day

Smells old, stale and dreadful. Food is poor quality pub grub. Don't waste your time or money at this place. The other pub a few doors down is no better. Surely someone can give Blackheath a pub revival, because both of them really need it!

There are 2 Gardners Inn listed on Trip Advisor - this one with an apostrophe and the other without (which I think is the correct one). In any case, posting my review on both. A family member has organised for us to gather here for lunch 30/12/14. The setting is good. Some different spaces indoors, an outdoor deck and an... More

It used to have a lovely fireplace, now gone, since the previous management left. The food is average to poor, but the service is pleasant. Thursday nights offer cheaper meals but not very imaginative.

We enjoyed this pub a lot more than some of the others in the area and came back a few times. The food was great for pub fare and very reasonably priced, much more so than I'm used to back home in QLD. The interior has been renovated some time in the recent past and there's a nice blend of...

Monday night, cold beer and large well cooked meals. Staff were pleasant and efficient. Toilets were a little messy however the rest of it was to our liking. Enough to go back for a most wonderful angus hamburger the next day for lunch. Never left hungry or unhappy. Thank you to the Gardner's Inn. 😊
