We visited Huskisson for lunch on a Wednesday. The Husky Pub attracted our attention as soon as we hit town. The pub has a great outdoor area with lovely views over the bay and beaches, and the bistro menu looked amazing. I ordered the seafood plate for one as it seemed to promise the best of a local eating experience.... More

I recently came here for lunch with some friends on a Saturday. The girl who took our orders at the till was very abrupt and curt with us. She actually said to me as I was waiting in line 'what do you want?'. No hello or smile, just a curt directive. I asked if I could change my chicken parma... More

Hi Dean, Thank you for letting us know about your recent experience — it is obviously of great concern to us, and we are embarrassed to have missed the mark so badly this time. Unfortunately, during busy periods, we do need to limit meal changes, as our chefs prepare up to one dish every 15 seconds... however, during quieter times... More

Came here with my family for a drink and the amazing outlook. The outlook over jervis bay is wonderful. Service... is something completely different. When trying to order some chips, the girl hit me with attitude and told me to wait a couple minutes while she stood there with her hand on a salad. She was waiting for someone to... More

We've been going to the Husky Pub as our "night out" for years, decades I guess. The position overlooking the inlet on Jervis Bay was always brilliant, as-was the shabby old outdoor eating area, and the nice indoor place where you ordered, and got your salads. Was looking forward to this last night, only to find it's been Sydney-fied. Everything's... More

Hi Ant100, Thank you for letting us know about your experience recently. We are sorry you were disappointed and are considering making some changes after receiving the feedback. We currently have several classic pub-style menu options that do offer great value, but we are looking at building on these items alongside our other, restaurant-quality meals. We hope you do return... More

Sitting on the deck here with a cold drink soaking up the view is a must do experience. Very relaxing indeed. The food is good and although the lines to order are long, they move qwuickly and the meals come out pretty fast. Friday and Saturday night they have a band and the place just goes off. Terrific atmosphere! Also... More

Went to our local yesterday to meet friends from Sydney for lunch, only to find they have more than doubled the price for food since doing the renovations. $25 to 35 for pub grub for lunch might be ok for some tourists but the locals still know where to eat lunch for half this price.

Hi Steve, Thank you for your review, and your expert advice on our pricing model. We enjoy the company of a large number of locals in the hotel — and the cafe — including many return visitors (aka 'regulars'), so we thank you for sharing the love with some city friends! Perhaps you'd like to order from the cafe or... More

Comtemporary gastro pub style food in one of the best locations in the world for lunch or sunset dining. Very busy and nosiy (lots of loud children ) food service was slow but due huge holiday influx this is something that you just have to tolerate. Have been at other times when not so busy and was perfect.

We visited the area in January and came across this place which we thought might be a laid back pub for a good typical feed...far from it. Was noisy, yes, it was school holidays but wasn't much seating away from uncontrolled rugrats. Upon looking at the menu we decided to pass on eating here as the food was wayyyyy over... More

Thanks for your review Amy, however it seems your feedback is focussed primarily on one staff member and not the whole hotel? Nevertheless, we're sorry you felt this individual's customer service was lacking, and we will follow up with our bar staff team. Regarding your opinion on 'uncontrolled rugrats', we pride ourselves on being a family-friendly establishment and therefore make... More

Quick service despite a very busy night. Large serving but pretty average food. I ordered the barramundi special at around $30 and was bland.
