It's a shame to write this as the staff are so lovely. The food is so overpriced for what you get. You would expect a decent steak, but it was chewy & horrible. This place used to be well priced with great food. Very disappointing for our family.

Spent Melbourne Cup day here-it's actually a collection of different bars and rooms all of which had an authentic old style pub feel with long wooden bars, tiled floors and good beer. Food wasn't shabby either-great steak choice amongst other things. In the U.K. It wouldn't be to much out of the ordinary but in a country with few buildings... More

not as good as I remembered which is a shame because it is a great place, the atmosphere and the history is brilliant but the steak was a bit of a let down

Beautiful classic hotel for a drink, food was great but very expensive. A lot more than you would expect from a pub meal.

awesome place for a really good steak. our friends from england were visiting so we made sure to take them here. I'm now vegetarian so there's a couple of options but would really only recommend coming here if you're a meat eater. good atmosphere and big serves.

So here are the positives: huge food serves, tasty, and pretty quick service BUT Here are the negatives: I'm a woman with a below average appetite so a lot of food was left on my plate. I hate wasting food, so I should have just ordered an entree size. That also would have taken the sting out of the price... More
