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

I chose this motel for is location off the main highway. The room is spacious but needs some modernisation and repair. The door was very hard to open as it was stuck quote firmly at the bottom maybe due to a wet rainy day. The bathroom bench has an ugly swollen part and the louvre does to the patio were... More

After waiting almost two hours for our meals, they were bland (to put it mildly). No one at our table was happy with their meal or how long they took. And... More

Had lunch here a week or so ago. Lunch specials covered a good range, but decided on chicken schnitzel & salad. Great feed for the price and ready quickly after ordering.
