“Great little find”
Reviewed June 28, 2012 via mobile

We liked the Northern. The food is pretty good and honest. Compared to some of the other Byron places we had eaten in, it was so much cheaper. The portions were a fair size and the people are friendly. The $10 specials are great value. In fact the last meal we had there (for two of us) cost $22. For that I had a huge wood fired pizza and my mate had a chicken schnitzel, chips, salad and a pepper sauce. We demolished each plate! We've now eaten here 3 times this week which tells you something. During the evening they often have a curry night, Mexican night etc and very cheap. Go on, pay it a visit!

“Good reliable pub food”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

The Great Northern is a typical Aus pub on the main street of Byron, with a large bar and separate dining room which opens out on to the street. The menu mainly consists of good quality pub food (steaks, fish etc) together with pizzas from their own wood fired oven. Our group all had delicious crisp barramundi, chips and salad which at AUD17.50 we all thought offered good value for money. There's also a reasonable wine list and the excellent Byron brewed Stone & Wood beer available on tap.

If you're looking for reliable pub food, you won't go far wrong at the Northern. We'll definitely use it again next time we're in the area.
