A real surprise! The good experience started from the moment we pulled up to fill up with petrol and got service at the bowser. Haven't had someone fill my car for eons! A lovely bit of customer service. Then went in meaning to grab something to eat for the road expecting your usual roadhouse fare of hot chips and meat... More

Having spent a few days in the area and asking locals where to eat, all said that Sue at Lavers Hill pub was the place. We checked it out for coffee in the morning, and were not disappointed, aided by a delicious chocolate cake. The local characters added to the fun of the place and we went back for dinner,... More

Lavers Hill is very limited at night. The Roadhouse is the local pub and whilst staff are very friendly the dining needs to step up. We had a meal here one evening, being e only people in the bistro at 6 pm. Limited menu which sounded great and the produce seems to be very good, but the dishes need some... More

We were a group of 5 and arrived in bistro to find no tables. A couple offered their table and they would move to bar. In a flash the manager arranged two tables and we were all set. Only had a condensed menu but all meals (steak, marlin and lamb) were superb. Good value and great service by happy and... More

As a member of a swimming group, we frequently visit Lavers Hill, and this Road House is our choice for lunch. Fresh salads, pies and pasties, teas and coffees, they even serve petrol if you're running low. Friendly staff, garden views, birdlife, cool fresh air.
