Reviewed August 16, 2011

We went to the Pioneer Tavern as part of a birthday celebration. It was very busy but service was quick. It was Surf and Turf night and I had rump steak and gralic prawns for $12. It was fantastic food and fantastic value. My husband had schnitzel. It was great as well. Dessert was great and the coffee fantastic. I have eaten at many great up market restaurants and was really impressed by everything at The Pioneer

a pub trying to serve restaurant priced food and fails miserably. I ordered the whiting fillet fish ($18) and chips, my girlfriend ordered steak and calamari ($28). The fish was tasteless and the steak has the dubious honor of being the worst steak Ive ever eaten, ordered medium rare which it was, but the char was over powering and bitter. AVOID this pub for food
