Just had a meal of Fish, Chips, Chicken. The fish was average. Chips were dry and Chicken dry and salty. Lots of room for improvement.

“NOT value for money!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

Decided on nachos and seafood basket to take away. Nachos $18! They were not prepared to swap sole fish for another type in the seafood basket even though would've paid more. Lady was quite abrupt when we asked... was it really THAT difficult I think not! Having paid $18 for nachos was expecting a decent amount and more than just beans, chips and cheese but no. So all in all very disappointed with food and service.

“Yummy spicy wedges”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

The log cabin is a piece of Hanmer history. For a quick takeaway bite or sour cream and wedges after the pool, it's a great spot. Don't expect flash, just functional.
