Visited in June and July for mid-week dinner. Very popular pub restaurant with most tables full at 7pm! Great menu and fantastic steak cooked to perfection. Helpful and welcoming staff. Will be back!

I recently visited the Allies for a friends' birthday in the upstairs function room. The service was great as was the food, and hotel was clean and well maintained. The wonderful bar attendant even managed to find two AAA batteries when my camera flash went flat!

Graziers Steakhouse at the Allenstown Hotel had a great menu although all we wanted was a great steak. Have a Monty's card so got an even better deal with the discount.

Allies is our 'local' and we often eat here because we can generally get a table at short notice and the meals are ok and the cost is reasonable. The restaurant manager is is the best aspect of the venue. I think it's fair to say the kitchen is staffed by a cook rather than a chef. The meals are... More

Attended a wedding reception here. The food was lovely and the service was prompt and friendly. The building and facilities are well kept and should be a credit to the establishment.

We arrived early for dinner and there were very few people there. Our first choice from the menu was unavailable. So was the second. We finally settled on the Graziers Beef Pie which was quite delicious. It was served with mashed potato and mushy peas which was more like a tiny bowl of pea soup.

We decided to go to the Allenstown Hotel Mother's Day breakfast on Sunday 8th May 2016 to celebrate Mother's day. At $18 per Adult expected to enjoy a wonderful breakfast and a wonderful time. Unfortunately this was far from the case with the hot food being either cold or just warm. Not enjoyable when eating cold scrambled eggs or bacon.... More

Good service, cold beer, friendly atmosphere. Huge TV must be about 3 meters long by 2 meters high. Great for watching the footy.

The usual suspects on the menu, but prepared with a bit of TLC. Had the ceasar with chicken and pleased to see it was not drowning in dressing. Garlic prawns entree was big enough for a main, but lacking garlic. The steaks looked fine and cooked rare to order. Sadly the wine list was very basic and uninteresting.

25 of us went for my nieces 18th Birthday Celebration - service was great, especially for such a large table of guests. I had steak with lobster which was excellent. Unfortunately 3 of us ordered the lobster and as there was a choice of sauces, one of the orders was wrong. It took awhile for the order to be fixed... More
