“Christmas Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Christmas Lunch was very nice! The Manager was fantastic accommodating for our childs special needs, a very big thank you to her! The food was rather good, the gifts for the children were appropriate and the whole atmosphere was lovely! A very nice way to spend Christmas Lunch - it certainly took the hassle away for me…. no cooking or cleaning!

“Go for the space, not the food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

It's a great place for families to meet (lots of room) and kids to play (good range of play equipment), but the food is below average. I had the 'special' tempura prawn salad (about $19), it didn't seem fresh, tempura was cold. Other family members had steak (declared tasteless, was also served cold) & steak sandwich (lots of gristle). Food hardly seemed to be cleared while we were there (Saturday lunch time for a couple of hours). It felt like the staff weren't keeping up with the volume of diners. Inside the pub it felt dark, dusty and grotty. By the end of the visit I felt like I needed a shower.

“Good Pub Tucker”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

I have been a customer at the Ettamogah since its opening and would like to say that the food is very good with a good variety and very family friendly.

“Food is overated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

I have had some really good food here but it has really gone downhill since te managers moved on to another Rouse Hill pub. They do have a really long menu which is great, but the steaks are dry and not as good as they should be for the price. Stick to the schnitzel/Parma menu. The seating options are terrible, unless you are a large family with screaming kids because you can let them run around to annoy other patrons while you have your beers/wines and totally forget that you are in a public space and need to supervise your children.

“Bad managment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

My daughter recently had a party at the Ettamogah for her 19th birthday. She booked the function room (which allowed under age patrons), hired security as part of the booking requirment, as she had a couple of 17 year olds, purchased platters of snacks and hired a DJ.

After the party being on for close to 2hours managment shut it down and put everyone out and band them from entering the public bar area.

According to the night manager, my daughter needed 5 over 25 year olds to host a party. She was told when booking she need 2 and she could hire security.
Obviously the manager booking parties has a different idea to the night manager and I still haven't heard from the owner as I requested.

Total shambles, will never book there again
