The breakfast menu is great, with a full selection for the hungriest hiker, preparing for a day out on the trails. The dinner menu looks great, with a huge selection that looks very inviting. Unfortunately, the food was overcooked a little (perhaps chef was under the pump with the bus groups they were catering for) Nice environment, and the staff... More

The restaurant menu range looked good but we decided on a light meal of garlic bread and mushroom cappuccino (mushroom soup). it was accompanied by a small mushroom roll much like a sausage roll with mushrooms. My soup was tepid and my husbands was still frozen. The microwave was put to great use as the rolls were both very soggy... More

For the price of the food, you'd expect something pretty good, however. There was a group of about 13 of us. I ordered soup which was great, but unfortunately the side of veg was VERY cold. My husband ordered the pork belly ($32) which was also very COLD, DRY, crackling that needed to be cut with a chainsaw... and served... More

This is a pub and a restaurant all in one. Given this is the only establishment you have to use this if you don't have your own foods and drinks. The service is good but can be busy at times and the meals are reasonable and generous but expensive however given the isolation and need to have deliveries from a... More

Great range of delicious dishes on the menu. We had 5 dinners there and were happy with all of them. When we provided feedback about their duck being undercooked, they took our feedback on board & gave us a complimentary entree the next day. The waiting staff worked hard to try to be attentive to the diners in a busy... More

Fish was great. Entree tasting plate of kangaroo and emu really good. Coffee was good (from the barista, skip the automatic coffee machine unless you like burnt coffee)

It's a pub meal, with big serves, great after a day of hiking. Reasonable value for money, considering how far from 'civilisation' it is.
