“Great lunch and a chat with a top bloke”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

The pub food is excellent and seriously inexpensive,pub is clean and the walls abound in sporting memorabilia. Staff are friendly and unlike some Sydney pubs no one puts on the dog.The highlight is meeting the owner rugby league legend Mick Cronin.Even if you are not a league tragic this man lights up your day and his son behind the bar is equally pleasant.A stopover is rcommended.

“Cronin’s Gerringong Hotel/Motel and Jack’s Grill.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

which is open for lunches and dinners.
Jack’s Grill is more like a fish & chip shop with inside and outside dining areas. When you first walk into the shop you will be put off by the décor, or lack of. It felt to me as if I had gone back to school with the wooden tables and chairs. It did appear to be clean and tidy.
There is no table service for orders, you order and pay at the counter. There is a range of food for the lunch order, “I did not see the dinner menu, and am not sure if it changed”. The food was good and came as large servings. Drinks have to be purchased from the adjoining bar.
The pub and shop are wheel chair accessible, although it did not have designated parking for wheelchairs, it was easy access.
The “shop” is worth trying at least once if you are staying in Gerrigong or stopping on your way through. The service was good and the people friendly.
For Rugby League supporters, particularly Parramatta Fans, there is some memorabilia in the pub of Parramatta’s success in the 80’s. And if you are lucky you can say good day to Mick Cronin.

“Great pub food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Stopped with a group of friends for lunch and was very happy with the service and food. Nice friendly atmosphere and staff were very friendly. Typical pub food (hamburgers, schnitzel etc) reasonable prices and pretty quick service and servings were very good. Lovely way to start our weekend. The only disappointment as a Parramatta fan was not seeing the great Mick Cronin.

“Great food and nice to have a chat to a true legend !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Our 4 family members ate here in early July, 2013 for lunch and it was great food. Much larger-than-average meal portions, so no chance of leaving hungry ! We sat outside in the beer garden in the sun on a magnificent winter's day, very very relaxing.

Staff were all friendly and the added bonus was that my teenage daughters got a photo snap with the great Mick Cronin, and he took the time to have a chat to all of us. What a genuine, down to earth bloke.

Most definitely would return and, hopefully, next time be able to enjoy a beer or two at Mick's bar, rather than miss out due to being the driver for the day !
