Ate here Saturday Lunchtime 18/1/2020. Blandest pizza I've had for a long, long time. Salami used was terrible and the plastic coating had not been peeled off before cooking! No Chilli flavour at all.

Staff were very friendly and the venue itself was very nice. A decent pizza would have seen a 4 circle rating but the terrible pizza took my overall rating down to poor (2 circle).

Would have complained on the spot but it was the first time meeting future in-laws and didn't want them to feel uncomfortable.

We stayed here for business and was pleasantly surprised how big and nice the rooms were. The staff were friendly and the hotel next door was a convenient location to sit and have a nice meal.

The rooms as mentioned were a good size with my room having a queen size and single bed in the room.

Breakfast was simple but nice, with a choice of a continental breakfast. We didn’t realise the kitchen closed for breakfast at 9am as this was the time we arrived, but the staff were happy to accommodate us to ensure we were fed.

Would stay here again for business in particular as the function rooms available and staff assisting us were lovely.

For those of you who like to shop there is a Costco and DFO shopping centre just across the road.

Would also recommend eating at the hotel next door as our meals were very nice along with the staff.

Lunch meals were a good size (too big really) but certainly are Melbourne standard fare! Schnity, Parmy, burger and calamari. Cheaper and bigger than The Powell in Footscay, but tooooo much food. Again why do we accept all the waste of 2/3 meals and too many chips than don’t get eaten.
Take a couple of bucks off, maybe 4, and then true value is achieved and the profit to the pub will still be enough.

My daughter & son in law recently moved to Dingley Village. When i was visiting from Canada we decided to try a local restaurant that they had heard was good. We each tried a different main - the service was fast & the food was great - freshly made, large portions, attractively served. We liked it so well we went back again the next week & enjoyed another great experience. They will be taking family & friends there in the near future & it is definitely on my must visit list for my next trip to Melbourne.
