Friendly place, but a bit tired

We didn't eat as it's really a pub. But it's a friendly place, with a good selection of beers and really nice customers.

My wife and I decided to have lunch here with our two kids. We ordered 2 chicken schnitzels, one burger and one lasagne. When our order was finally ready, we found that it had morphed into one burger, 2 lasagnes and no schnitzels! When we politely pointed out the error, the response was just a shrug of the shoulders.

Our family loves going down to Kangaroo Valley for the weekend, and spending time at the pub. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, and we had a selection of delicious meals between us. The beer garden was a gorgeous spot as we sat in the sunshine overlooking the community garden. Great place and highly recommended when visiting Kangaroo Valley

Oh my! Words cannot explain how revolting the food was here, so I took a picture to re-live the wonderment laid before me. Inside was grubby and smelled stale and of old beer. We made our way down the back stairs to the gardens, which could have done with a clean up of cigarette butts, lawn mowed and maybe a... More

We chose to sit outside this friendly hotel. Unfortunately it was dirty and smelly inside. That smell of old beer soaked carpet. It was a beautiful day and plenty of people were there enjoying the day with there kids in the beer. Staff were friendly.

This is our second visit to Kangaroo Valley and we eat here every chance we get for lunch or dinner. Every meal we had has been great. They also have a great backyard to eat out, great scenery while enjoying your food.

Lost order. Wrong order. Confrontational staff. Good entertainment on a Saturday night. Daughter was genuinely concerned. Staff were rude.
