If you are looking for lunch I would strongly suggest sticking to hot chips or going to town hall down the road because this is awful. We decided to treat ourselves to a watermelon mojito each at the Sydney CBD price of $21 each.... It came with crushed brown/old mint leaves, a hint of watermelon and mainly tasted like soda...

This venue lacks atmosphere. We ordered a several cocktails from their limited menu and were told that ingredients were missing (eg no watermelon avail for the watermelon cocktail and similar, no tomato juice for the bloody mary, no lime for the cocktail based on lime). Making up for this are the delightful staff, especially Murray who managed to make delicious... More

Excellent spot for light meals and interesting drinks after a trip to the National Park. The staff were friendly and helpful. I recommend the soft-shelled crab salad btw.

Lovely staff and great food . We had a BLT burger and chips which was around $16.00. The drinks are typical prices for a hotel bar.....

Delicious garlic chicken wings and sweet potato chips - really appreciated after a long, chilly afternoon's hiking. Very friendly staff, especially Murray.

Came in to get out of the wind and to enjoy a quiet beer and a bit of food. Very casual atmosphere. Quick service. Beers are pricey ($8.50 for a stubby), but this is the outback after-all. The area is a "dry community", so in order to have alcohol you need to show your motel room key or some other... More

I spent some time here waiting for my room - the hotel gave us complimentary beverages because we had a long wait before our room was ready. Menu is small but fine, wine was good, staff was super friendly and informative. Relaxed atmosphere.

Stopped by here for a drink and to watch the footy match on TV. Good selection of seating, small but adequate bar food menu and of course a large selection of drinks. Friendly and attentive staff. We enjoyed a relaxed 90 mins here
