On an overnight stay in Dalby, I dined at the Russell Tavern with my wife on the recommendation of a local. The menu was as varied as anything you'd find in a big city pub so I opted for the mushroom risotto. It was really good but I was a little surprised when it arrived to find that it was,... More

Spent one night in Dalby and our party of 5 dined at the Russell on a Saturday night and all had a variety of meals from a menu that had plenty of choice. The meals were predominantly good and served pretty quickly considering there appeared to be quite a few xmas parties happening there on the night. Good service from... More

Visited Russell Tavern for dinner while in Dalby recently. Staff here were attentive and friendly. Large, well appointed dining area. We chose the "Seniors" meals from the extensive menu. For a very nominal fee, we had the choice of one of about six main meals, which included desert and coffee. If you are a "senior" dining in Dalby, and looking... More

We have eaten here numerous times and the food and service are always good. The only time we had to wait over an hour for food the tavern was absolutely packed with several large groups. We had booked the function room but there was only 1 staff member taking orders so the queue to order was very long.

It's not a bad pub but it's not the best pub in town. We had dinner here after work. It was a pleasant experience, the staff were nice and the food was average. I'd recommend it but wouldn't tell you to go out of your way to eat there.

Dalby is surrounded by cattle country so we were confident of getting a good steak dinner. This pub was recommended to us by a couple of local people. We ordered eye fillet to ensure the tenderest meat but both steaks were overcooked and dry. Disappointing for a place specializing in steak. Given its popularity maybe bad luck on this occasion?
