Had dinner on a Friday night, had a surf and turf, wife had lamb cutlets and the kids had options from the kids menu. Fridays have anything on the menu max $16. Our meals were good, well presented and very tasty. The kids meals looked as if they were just slapped up from frozen nuggets and a cheese burger. Food... More

I stayed here with my husband for a 2 night stay in Dubbo. I purchased our stay here on a 'Deal' so the price was greatly reduced. The location was excellent for attractions, restaurants and shops. Our room was a Delux room and I have to say there wasn't much that was Delux about it, that term is used far... More

Lined up for 25 minutes to place a dinner order here recently. The staff member who took the order advised of a 45 minute wait, but meals only took about 30 minutes. Meals were good for pub grub, but menu could be improved by adding a few lighter options. One of our group needed a gluten free option and this... More

Typical country pub value! Great little playground for the kids to run around on with CCTV camera displayed on a screen inside (You can see what your kids do when they don't think you're watching!) Nice warm place to be on a clod winters day!

I often visit the Macquarie Inn for work purposes and am never disappointed with the great food and service. The pub itself is always clean with a great atmosphere, there's even open fires going in the cold months. The staff are always very helpful and the food is excellent value for money. This pub should be very proud of the... More
