There were 7 of us with 2 children on a busy Thursday night. The food was served very quickly with very pleasant wait staff. All meals were very good with the roast chicken and the apple pie were also standouts.

The kids were happy, I was happy and would have to see the tastiest steak and mash I have had in a long time. The price for 3 of us including drinks was $42. That is amazing value. We will be back next time we visit Blackheath.

I always used to want to come to this pub when I used to take my kids to stay at the cabins in the Megalong Valley years ago. It looked inviting on a cold night and the menu always looked very inviting. For some reason I had assumed the dining room was upstairs, It had a olde worlde wooden décor... More

On a cold winters night dinner with the kids is always difficult. However the atmosphere was easy going the service was fast. The kids had spaghetti bolognese and we had lasagna. It tasted fantastic. We were full as the serves were so big. The kids also had some ice cream dessert. Nice warm fire going inside. Plenty of room for... More

Happy with our Friday night here --- lots of locals to have a chat and a happy vibe ~ Food ok --- We both chose the same meal = vegies so much nicer than the beef which needed a hacksaw to cut.

The roast was terrible as the meat was very tough and the veges undercooked . Thanks goodness for the lovely apple crumble. We were part of a group on Saturday night for dinner. It had been recommended by locals and the pub was packed. The only good thing (apart from the apple crumble) was that it was nicely warm

Have been here a few times before, and am always happy with the food and the service. It's always nice to warm up before an open fire, while waiting for a meal.

Stopped in for a meal while waiting for a hotel reservation down the mountain. Hotel is homely, food is well priced and good. A bit slow to clean tables when people leave but that's the only negative. Schnitzel and salad for $19.

We had dinner here with the kids. All the meals were cooked to perfection. In particular the vegetarian lasagne. The best I have ever had. Kids had beef lasagne and wanted 2nds as it was also delicious. The classic chicken Parma was amazing! Dessert looks great but we were so full after mains! The pub is a classic old pub... More

We arrived in Blackheath last Friday night, amidst a downfall of beautiful snow! The Gardner's Inn was warm and cosy and our large group was easily accommodated. All of the meals were very generous and tasty and came to our table reasonably quickly. Would recommend to anyone in search od a decent pub meal.
