The Irish voices emanating from the kitchen added to the Gaelic feel of this great eating place. The signature dish, Guinness Pie was full of tender juicy meat and rich gravy and served with creamy mash while the Rigatoni with chicken, chives and mushroom was very tasty. It was also a nice warm spot for a cider and Guinness in... More

Went with my parents for lunch one day. The food was very tasty - quite large, and the service was quite quick.

This is a good, comfortable pub with an Irish theme. The food is at the top end of pub grub, with some good meals on the menu and daily specials. prices are reasonable, and good value.

Always enjoy the food at Duggans. Always a huge variety and lots on the special menu as well. No eftpos at food counter, however there is an ATM available. The staff are extremely friendly. Lots of seating available. The meals are huge and served relatively quick as well. On street car parking & a big car park behind as well.

So I travel a bit, and have stayed in many hotels and pubs. I usually prefer a nice hotel, though after a quick drop in for a arvo beer which happened to be a perfectly poured pint of Guinness, I had a look around and noticed the foodie awards and great atmosphere. I decided to stay in the pub and... More

Visited as part of a large group gathering. The venue itself is centrally located, however the layout of the rooms is not very inviting. The property is separated off by sliding doors, this creates the impression of a smaller building but is good for providing separate group areas. The food was delivered with speed given the number of people and... More

My sister in law and I came here just for dessert after a meal - Ma Duggans Peanut butter choc chip ice cream pie! Soooo good! Would love to come back and try a meal here sometime.

We went as a group of six for dinner, on an evening when there was a group of eighty people there for dinner! This did mean that the queue to order was fairly lengthy. However, the staff were, as usual, good natured and efficient, and the atmosphere is relaxed and pleasant. Our group was happy with their food choices; the... More

Always a good meal here. If you want to pay for your meal with credit, you need to start a tab at the bar. No credit at the restaurant but you can easily pay for your meals and drinks at the bar when you leave. Great atmosphere, colouring for the kids, lots of rustic decorations to look at.

The venue was okay. However service was a little slow perhaps due to the large number of patrons on a long weekend. This was made up by the friendly staff and delicious pots pie & shepherds pie. My friend who had a steak though was not a fan.
