“Great food, great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Service was great, good priced food & plenty of variety! Waitress spilt my dinner as she was serving but quickly offered to replace the piece of chicken that fell on the floor. I declined because dinner was huge. I love it when problems are sorted quickly!

“Long wait for average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Arrived in town early Monday evening and wanted an easy meal. Arrived at hotel restaurant at 7pm - very busy (maybe because most places in Wangaratta are shut on a Monday) - food didn't arrive until after 8pm. As it was busy we expected a wait but as we were ordering kids meals it might have been polite to be told that the meals would be at least an hour. Tandoori chicken stack lacked flavour and pretty much missed the mark for a tandoori dish. The quinoa salad was very good but the kangaroo was overcooked. Other dishes were stock standard pub food priced above average (eg $25 chicken parmigiana)

Hi Avril D

Yes Monday was very busy It's our $15 Parma & a Pot Night, so we fill up fast!
That is a great idea with the kids meals, I have passed it onto my staff.
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave your feedback!

I hope that you do try the Pinsent Hotel again next time you are in town...

“Nice lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Friends we have not seen for a long time & my family met at The Pinsent for lunch earlier this week. The three kid's meals were good value at $12.50 for the meal, drink & 2 scoops of ice cream with topping & sprinkles. The adult meals were really nice - pork belly salad, chicken parmigiana & chicken, spinach & pesto risotto. Meals were served hot & there was more than enough on the plates.
The Pinsent has a good wine list, with many wines sourced from the local King Valley region. When in Wangaratta next, I'll happily return.

Hi Gurty71

I'm very pleased to hear that you all enjoyed your meals and that you found them to be great value!
Being able to source wines from this fantastic region is one of my favourite things about managing the Pinsent Hotel!
We hope to see you again when you are next in Wangaratta!

“Won't return”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Out of four meals ordered during a quiet lunch only one met our expectations. Two shepards pies were actually very watery stew with mashed potato on top, the vegetarian stir fry was soggy, cold and presentation was a zero, only the salmon was well presented and met taste expectations. No apology was offered even with recognition of the shepards pies knowingly being made wrong. We left feeling that McDonalds would have satisfied better.
