“Wouldn't recommend for food or a drink!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Very basic pub in a noisy rough section of Alice Springs where it's probably wise not to travel after dark and certainly not on your own! Had a very quick drink with friends but the snack food we ordered was awful and didn't get eaten. Couple this with some grubby glasses and we left disappointed but not surprised. People from dry communities get alcohol close by so the area outside this pub can be a bit unpredictable. Give it a miss.

“Good pub fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Good grub, cheap prices, friendly staff, cold beer - what more could you want. I had a meal and a couple of beers here on a very hot day and it was ideal.

“A nice oasis on a hot day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

We had two separate meals there and both experiences were excellent.  Large menu range with daily specials, all are cheaper than other comparable restaurants in the Alice town centre. The Seafood Trio, Tandoori Chicken Salad, Fillet Steak and Salmon meals were all delicious and well cooked by someone who knows their trade. The bar and waiting staff were very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful and courteous. Large, cool dining room with good range of cold beers on tap. Salad bar had very limited range, but the four dishes were freshly prepared and tasty. Would definitely eat there again and deserves to be recommended.

“Good food, prices and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

We went on what was a 'specials night'. The service was friendly, fast and efficient especially as it was an busy night. We were surprised at the speed of service, they obviously have a good ordering system. The meals were all good and the drinks cold.

“Great value Sunday carvery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Judging by the crowds on the Sunday evening we were here, it's no secret among the locals there's a great value carvery to be had at Todd Tavern. For any Brits in Alice craving a home cooked roast, this was as close as we got during our time in Oz. The food was good, service was friendly and we were probably the only tourists in the place, but still felt more than welcome. From the outside I really wasn't expecting a modern pub, so I was quite surprised when we walked in. And it's just a couple of minutes walk from the Aurora where we were staying, so this pub ticked all the boxes for us.
