“Overlook the Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Great hotel, good food and fabulous views of Lake Macquarie.

Drinks and meals resonably priced and plenty of off-street parking.

Great on the balcony on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

“Always a friendly place and value for money too!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We have eaten here quite a few times on our visits to the area. When they are busy things are really hopping but they get through the orders. This Sunday night was more laid back and chilled. We arrived to a local band pumping out covers to the delight of the locals. Then on to an excellent pub dinner in the dining room. This is a reliable place to visit filled with locals always ready for a chat!

“Top pub in Belmont by a mile”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

The Gunyah under-want a makeover several years ago, and is now a very welcoming location for drinks and eats. The excellent views from the deck are a highlight, as is the quality and quantity of food from the Swill & Grill bistro. If you are in the area, give it a go.

“Fabulous food, Fabulous Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

My family and I went to the Gunyah Swill and Grill for the first time for Mother's Day Dinner. They were extremely busy, however our waitress was organised and very attentive, especially to our 9 and 7 year olds, and we were seated and our orders taken quickly. We expected a delay, but our food came out promptly and was generous in quality and quantity. As a bonus, the Hotel handed out $10 vouchers to all Mothers dining on the night. We'll definitely be back!

“Great family venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

Two restaurants here. Have tried the fare at Swill and Grill but not at the more intimate upstairs venue. Swill and grill is a great spot for the family to gather and discuss activities. But I suspect the upstairs venue is the better location for intimate dining.
