We were in Avoca to be close to Maryborough on the weekend of the HPV and went to this pub with expectations of good food and unfortunately were disappointed. I do have to say though that the chips were the best we had tasted in a long time, but the rest of the meal was well below par. My husband ordered a chicken schnitzel and I ordered a cheese burger. The schnitzel that was served to my husband was 70% charcoal, not even slightly blacked with grill marks. I would have been embarrassed to serve it up to family it was that burnt, the chief should have thrown it out and start again. My hamburger was ho hum, I was thinking I would get a great pub style hamburger with tomato and maybe onion with the cheese, but instead got the pub version of McDonalds including the American mustard and ketchup Shame I wasn't asked if I wanted both (which I did not, if I had wanted a McDonalds hamburger I would have gone to McDonalds). We were hungry and tired so could not be bothered complaining about the food we were given. We will be going back to Avoca, but I am going to have to do a lot of convincing to get my husband back to try this place a second time. Maybe its because we ordered just the basic pub fare rather than the more elaborate meals little effort was put into them. Surely with all the good reviews this pub has had it can do much better.
