“Looks good on the outside but I wouldn't eat there”

Heyward's Royal Oak Lounge Bar
Ranked #6 of 13 Restaurants in Penola
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 5, 2012

We stop to have a meal at this lovely looking old pub, when we walked in there was not one person in the pub other than the bar staff the first alarm bell rang in our head, but we though at least we would get a quick meal and be on our way, we place our order and then we waited and waited finally our meals arrived they looked liked they were just slapped on the plate, the salad was wilted and my steak was off, and I was unable to eat it my husband meal was just a simple Schnitzel and chips, he said it tasted ok not the best he had but it was ok for a pub meal, until we got 30 minutes down the road, a quick stop at a toilet and an unscheduled nite accommodation in motel. He was just so very ill. The Royal Oak its a good place to take some nice photos but I would not recommend eating there......Penola is a lovely little town would visit there again
