Came here with friends as it is halfway between South and Port Hedland and ended up regretting the decision. Everyone ordered their meals after each other, myself a simple salad and small drink for $27 which is a rip-off. We all ended up getting our meals at different times and couldn't wait and eat together as the meals would have... More

Excellent bar service by Nikki! Would definitely recommend the walky as pub to have a few beers after a long day at work. Great service, great atmosphere and great beer garden. If you're looking for place to wind down after a long day in the pilbara then the walky is the place to be!

Very friendly and accommodating staff. The food is fantastic can't beat the half price lunch. Fresh homemade garlic bread loaf is the perfect entree. Plenty of cold beers on tap to satisfy anyone. Truely not a place to miss in Hedland. Highly recommend to anyone travelling or looking for a good meal.

The staff are friendly and go above and beyond. The half price lunch menu is great value and fulfilling. The family room has separate bedrooms which is great when the kids need to go to bed and you are not all in the same room. Overall...Easily the best place to stay & eat if you are in the Pilbara.

Had this garlic bread for $9. Sorry, but in my opinion is this not an example of hospitality. There was a buffet for $30 each plate which I didn't take. Further there was not much to choose from. Despite of the location of the restaurant and motel near the highway.

Stayed for three nights for work. Very good rates, prices have come down a lot since the mining boom. They let us stay longer on check out day due to afternoon flights. Meals were good. Rooms are old but clean with new televisions. Don't try looking for an email address though, impossible to find.
