“Great relaxed meal in casual atmosphere”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Arrived in Hunter Valley and looked for a relaxed place to have dinner with good food. Found it at Harrigans! Service was great - waitresses were friendly, bar staff initiated conversation. Started with sweet chilli & cheese bread. Main course (lamb shanks, rump steak) were presented well. Generous portions noticed with all meals served to all patrons. Lamb shanks were beautifully cooked - fell apart from the bone, jus was tasty and sides & veges were a great complement. Steak was cooked to order, although grill could have been slightly hotter to better cook the outside. Dessert (chocolate pudding) was phenomenal. Beautiful with a lovely latte. Price was reasonable for the Hunter Valley. Ended up spending $130 for 3 course meal for two. Would definitely come back.

“Just fine for our needs!”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

This place works fine if you just need a good comfy place to stay for the night. The pub is an added bonus!

“Irish Bar / Restaurant”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Very friendly staff, with reasonable menu, if rather basic. Would recommend if arriving late. Very clean and comfortable.

“Tasty pie”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Had the beef and guinness pot pie. Very tasty. Service ordinary. Decor looked like it hadn't been updated since the rash of Irish pubs in Australia in the 70s/80s.
