This was once, hands down- my FAVOURITE restaurant. The pork belly + mash was absolutely one of the best meals I've ever had in my life. So when my husband booked to go for Valentines day, I was nothing short of ecstatic! Upon arrival we ordered drinks and it took 30 minutes for mine to arrive. They explained (rather hurriedly)...

Great menus with a good choice of traditional beers. Staff very friendly and welcoming. We have visited this place many times and it never fails to disappoint. Whether you choose to sit out side on a summers evening or inside with a real fire in the cooler months you'll be guaranteed of good food and company.

I have never been a fan of this restaurant but my husband loves their pork belly. We went there tonight for dinner and they advised they are transitioning to a new menu, which included a changed pork belly dish, so we both decided to have the grilled flake with chips and salad. After almost 30 minutes it turned up and... More

The Tavern (Pub) is situated in the Dandenong Ranges. Parking is limited and my group was forced to park in the side streets around the Tavern. The staff at the Tavern are very friendly and accommodating and strive to provide a good service. However, the first order of drinks did take a few minutes to arrive and after about ten... More

We were a group of 6 one being a small child. We ordered cheesy bread and warmed sourdough with a choice of butter or balsamic dressing. The breads were warm, fresh and tasty. We ordered schnitzels, slow roasted pork, grilled flake and slow roasted lamb. The concensus was all the dishes were delicious and servings generous. The staff were all... More

My wife and I had dinner here recently. The food wasn't outstanding, but it wasn't bad either. For the size of the servings, the prices were fine. I had the chicken parma, which was huge - almost the width of the plate. Overall it was good pub food. We did have to wait a while to get our meals after... More

A great place with a great pub menu. Food was tasty and service overall was friendly. Loved the Pommy Platter - the warm bread was so good!

Booked for dinner with friends, told we could not book a table for 7.45pm, we must be seated by 7.30pm if we wished to order dinner - despite website advertising the restaurant is open until 11-pm. Upon arrival, 10 minutes after our friends arrived, we were handed menus and immediately asked by waitress if we were ready to order, we... More

Very average and rather pricey for what was offered. Didn't get any smile from the wait staff and definitely not returning.

Arrived and was informed Christmas lunch was not on the menu. Placed our order. Out of 2 drinks ordered managed to get only one right substituting... More
