“Sleepy Blackheath”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

When most restaurants were shut, the Gardner's in was open.Seriously, a public holiday Monday in Blackheath and most places for eating are closed.The Great Western Highway was full of cars returning east to Sydney so why not stay open for the passing trade?We still had one night left, so parked the car and to our amazement nothing but darkness.Till we got to the Gardners Inn.Warm dining room,welcoming staff with smiles ,a good range of food at affordable prices.Started with the garlic bread ,he had the Angus Steak burger while I chose the Lamb and Potato pie.With the flavoursome chips dipped in the pastry roof (awaiting my pie to cool down)..yummo.Desert we shared ,Apple Strudel with ice cream.Give the GI a try ,staff couldn't do enough .Service and food this good needs rewarding.

“Consistent Pub Food”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Have eaten here several times - as recently as last Sunday.
Always consistently good pub fare.
Pot pies are really good, and the choice of steaks are great value.
Beats my local in the Hills district hands down.

“Best Burger ever!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Friendly service and great food in a beautiful old building and small but nice beer garden, the Wagyu Burger was delicious.

Love the way they have converted a part of the building into a gallery, its a clever use of the space and adds extra appeal to the already beautiful decor.

“Don't Go”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We have been before and enjoyed it, but this time the food was average, expensive and service pretty non-existent.

“poor service, no ambiance”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

We thought we'd avoid theTVs inside, but then had to deal with the smokers outside. The tables were not cleaned off, the menu was unimaginative, lots of fried food, and the service was poor, but it was the only place open Jan. 1st.
