Dropped in for a quick drink after a long birding walk around the river. Drinks were sensational, but we didn't order food, as the place was packed. Obviously a popular place!

The meals here are huge. I had the beef schnitzel and hubby had the classic parmie. Both came with chips and salad. We live our food but even we couldn’t finish our food in fact we only ate half of our meals. Such a waste.

The staff are very friendly. Most of the tables are outside so you can view the river. There are a few tables inside though if it’s too hot.

Our group of 6 ordered seniors meals and were pleasantly surprised. Every meal was of a generous quantity and enjoyable. I regularly whinge the lack of vegetables served with meals, but had adequate supply this time. The staff were pleasant and gave great service. Two of our group hadn't been there before but have committed to making it a regular place to visit.

Hi, I live very close to the tavern, will not eat there again, till things change food wise.
Last week ordered garlic prawns, couldn’t taste the garlic, in fact no flavour.
Tonight, asked for bacon on the bruschetta, the first time it came out, didn’t even taste cooked and borderline off. Was told we should have asked it to be cooked more. They took it back and cooked it up and it still tasted off. Again chips were cold even though I asked for them hot. Butter chicken, may or may not have been chicken. Voiced our disappointment to no avail.

Pleased to see the new menu offers several vegetarian options, our meals were very tasty. Service was friendly and helpful. Only fault is the lack of craft beer options from quality breweries, especially with so many options available in Queensland.
