“In one word "Terrible"”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Went there to celebrate a grand daughter's birthday. Two seniors meals of fish and chips, one grilled and one fried and battered. Even the waiter who delivered the meals to the table could not tell with certain which was which as they both looked exactly the same. Salad on one, had one small piece of tomatoe, and a few small pieces of lettuce. The other, couple of pieces of tomatoe, some lettuce, shredded carrot and salad dressing. Fish;- one small piece on each plate, both overcooked and very dry.
In urgent need of some supervision in kitchen of food quality and presentation.

“Monday $15 Steak night”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

Having just moved back to Melbourne & to a different area than I'd lived previously I decided we would try Daisy's $15 steak night. The advertising offered rump or sirloin but when I went to order there was only rump available despite the restaurant being far from full. I asked for pepper sauce on both. The meals arrived fairly quickly. The rumps were 250gm and I had asked for medium. The steaks were easy to cut and close to medium but lacked a certain something; perhaps they had been partly cooked ahead of time. The accompanying chips (fries to you Americans) might well have been cooked yesterday. The salad was okay but tended to mix with the pepper sauce. The pepper sauce turned out to be the big disappointment; it could well have been beef stock with some added peppercorns. It lacked any imagination by the chef. All in all a disappointing meal and I will not rush back to this venue.

“Very good food, not enough staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

Arrived here on a Saturday night without a booking and were told it was full - but then a table became available and we were able to take it. Then the wait started. There was a queue for a drink at the bar - of about 15 people - and ONE person serving behind the bar! This is a pub, people! Like, peak hour..... and a similar situation for the food orders. Oh dear. It was a good hour before we were eating our meals, and as we'd popped down for a quick bite to eat - well, quick it wasn't. However, when the food did arrive, it was pretty good. He had lambshanks and I didn't get a look in; I had a special of an enormous pork cutlet on a prune and apple concoction, accompanied by a vegetable stack, and didn't want anything else. Very filling, good value, delicious food. Service was a let down - felt sorry for the staff because they were run ragged and no-one was happy!

“Friendly and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

I was staying at the Comfort Inn Ringwood Lake, and I was able to charge the meal back to my room account. The service was excellent, with frendly welcoming staff. There was a good selection on the menue. I ordered a mixed grill which was huge!
Easy walking distance to the Motel, and a winner!

“A Pub thats a Club”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Family friendly, but also great for couples or groups. Caters for all tastes and has a Seniors Menu as well. After eating if you want to you can go into the gaming room and play the Pokies but it is not intrusive of the meal area
