“A lunch never to be repeated”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Today we ate at the Anglers Rest. It was a Thursday latish lunch. We waited for 40 minutes to receive our meal. We had ordered a Fishermans Basket - being assured that the fish, calamari and prawns were fresh and local. The meal was without exception the most tasteless we have ever eaten,with the exception of Jewfish pieces which did at least taste like fish. Even the chips were totally flavourless. All pieces were overcooked, just warm and saggy as though the meal had waited on a counter for some time. It was not a meal that we enjoyed or finished and we will certainly never be returning to that hotel. It is a shame as Brooklyn, from the Expressway, looks like an interesting place to make a side trip. I would suggest to any would be cafe or bistro type dreamers - here is an opportunity just waiting to happen.
Very disappointed!

We went to the bistro at the Anglers Rest today. It was about 1.30pm so the main lunch rush had finished. The area was still fairly bust but not jam packed... We didn't expect a mammoth wait for food though.
Waited 50 mins for garlic bread, and 1 hrs 30 mins for 2 x fish ‘n’ chips and a chicken schnitzel!
The wait was unacceptable, and when the food arrived it was below average-crumbed fish cooked to death and battered fish had absorbed so much oil! And bad chips..
Very disappointing service. We did complain & our order was 'rushed through' but we didn't even get a free drink whilst we waited.

Thankful I found a bed at this hotel. Pleasantly surprised. Management welcoming & helpful. Second floor bedrooms. Freshly painted & carpeted. Room consisted of double & single bed. Hard base and foam mattress.Small refridgerator.Table with electric jug. Snug but adequate. Share Male & Female Bathrooms across the corridor. Very private & tastefully renovated. Brooklyn is a delightful town on the Hawkesbury and the hotel a much loved venue for meals drinks TAB & entertainment.Stayed Saturday night. Music went off at 11. Recommend breakfast at Delish@twelve cafe.

Room Tip: Cost $90 per night I considered this a little overpriced I usually pay $60-$75 for pub accommodation...
