Fresh seafood. Beautifully cooked. Although we did wait a while for our order. The staff were very apologetic about the time we waited. It was worth the wait.

My wife and I visited on consecutive nights, eating in the bar and bistro respectively. The menu seemed to be the same. The standard pub grub was up to scratch whilst the wider menu included ample portions. The bartender on the first evening was a cheerful soul and a smile is always welcoming. The manageress of the bistro seemed overworked... More

Dined in the bistro tonight and it was pretty ordinary. I had the Porterhouse and my partner had a Chicken Parmigiana. The steak was a little bland and slightly tough and served with mashed potatoes and a basic serving of hard steamed vegetables which were pretty unattractive. (I'd hoped to have the mushroom gravy, but there was none left). We... More

Our family dined here during the week, and we found all aspects to be just average. Despite it being a slow weeknight, service was slow, and the steaks not cooked according to our requests. The fish was OK, as was the Parma, but this grand old pub deserves more respect from its owners if it wants to win over the... More

Old fashioned service (great), staff who were helpful and friendly. Fair dinkum pub food, and plenty of TV screens to watch all sports. Free live entertainment which saw strangers dancing together like old friends! Wish there were more of these in the city !!

Went for a midweek lunch on a cold and miserable day, it was great dining in front of a warm cosy fire. Picked the steak from the range of weekday specials. Great value, hot, fresh and perfectly cooked. Great service in the front bar. Will certainly be back!

Dinner at Bistro in Grand Hotel served up HUGE bowls of mussels. Yum! Ribs were also from a dinosaur and apparently also delicious. Waitress very friendly will certainly return.
