“Overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Gone are the days when you can go to a pub and get a nice decent meal for a good price.
Meals are easily $30-$40 and not even well presented or enjoyable. My partner got steak salad and veg- and the salad consisted of a lettuce leaf, piece of cucumber and some carrot.
Such a shame as it's a nice clean tavern.

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

A pleasant location with nice outlook though we found the prices are rather high, staff could have been more courteous and we mast have had a rooky as she wasn't sure what the cocktails included and had to look them up on a recipe card then find the right liquor.

“$10 Steak lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

This wasn't the most tender steak, however it was the best value!! The service was friendly and quick and the meal tasty. Really good value for money (and they have their own parking spaces!!)

“A Pub lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

It seems that all of the pubs on the Sunshine Coast are now offering meals with a similar menu. The Duporth Tavern has recently been renovated in the out door seating area and I think is catching up to other offers nearby. The meals are cheap but the cheaper meals reflect the price and I would suggest that there is more value in ordering the dearer but more traditional pub meals on the menu.
The service was prompt, the bar was fine and the seating areas offer plenty of choice. Parking on the premises.
If a Pub lunch is OK then it is worth a try although there other pubs that might be considered too.
