We regularly eat at the Cooroy Hotel, being locals. The daily specials are excellent e.g. $12.50 Pizza and Pasta nights on Thursday, which is our favourite, with the pizza usually winning out. The a la carte menu is extensive, and a bit pricey, and there are some excellent choices. Many of the meals are extra large. I personally haven't had a bad meal at the Cooroy Hotel, although some friends have complained. It is very open and can be crowded, so it can be very noisy, especially on Friday and Saturday nights, which we avoid. We have found the wait staff to be very helpful. Ditto the bar staff. There are some small negatives, but you have to remember it is an hotel, not a fine dining restaurant. We will continue to go.
