“Bearable”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

I went with my family and we each had steaks. They were OK but the sides were terrible. The curly chips were all broken and the service was just service.

“so dissapointing”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

have been to this hogs breath before and each time it has gotten worse.From the time we walked in the door and was greeted(Use this term loosely) by the man in the blue shirt.If you are the first point of contact you should portray a better sense of hospitality and not one that seems forced as if you don't like people or they are an inconvenience.We were seated at our table and then left alone and had to wave to get the waitresses attention.I do not understand why it is necessary for her to want to sit at our table and take our order and found this off putting.Once our orders were taken and drinks served we waited and then waited some more.I realise it was busy with school holidays and would be willing to let a little time go but it was getting ridiculous and when our garlic bread finally came I wouldn't say it was burnt but wouldn't say edible either.Then we had to wait for the rest of our meals and in that wait we could not get another drink at any stage.Finally gave up as no-one came to see us.Our meals finally arrived,at least an hour or more since ordering, and the food was appaling.Cold vegetables,overcooked steaks, dry chicken breast, lumpy mash and lukewarm fries.I didn't think it was possible to have so much be wrong with one table but it did and we were not impressed.Would gladly have told someone if anyone had bothered to check on us but with the wait time and lack of service previously I doubt it would have achieved anything.We could not finish the meals and when the plates were cleared we were asked if we enjoyed the meals?Could you not see by the untouched meals that we didn't.At that stage we had had enough and just wanted to leave.We asked for the bill and again waited.Finally got the bill and paid and left.Would not recommend this place to anyone and for a local restaurant this place seriously leaves you with a bitter taste.a serious overhaul of staff is needed from the greeter to the kitchen to the floor.We will never be back and they have some major work to do to hold onto what must be a dwindling customer base.

“Good service and food. ”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

The staff were very friendly considering our group of 7 walked in at 8:30pm on a Monday night. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Definitely better than other HB's I've been to.

“Great family meal”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Great service for my family of five...
Excellent waiter who was attentive and made sure meals were on time and satisfactory .
Food was fresh and typical Hoggs breath menu .
The frozen Margarita was a bit disappointing. It tasted premixed not fresh. Otherwise would recommend for families and friends
