“Good food for acceptable price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Me and my son went for a dinner to Robbies bar.
We had the mixed grill and chicken sticks with rice. The food was really ok, also the prices for it. The service was very attentively. The only issue would be the price for a 330 ml bottle of beer which is 13,50 $.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed our food and our staff. I am concerned about the Beer for $13.50. We do sell our craft beers at that price but they are all 500ml bottles, perhaps one of our friendly staff may have miss informed you.
We do love the feed back though, and we look forward to having you here again.

“You let us down”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

We made a reservation although it appeared they gave away our table to 'walk-in' customers. The four of us ended up being seated at a large round table suited to 8 persons as a plan 'B'...this made for very difficult communication and later in the evening this only got worse as we discovered we were in the 'sports bar' area and a rugby game came on. Food was abysmal with grisly steak, poorly cooked with a medium steak bleeding on the plate. The table was right outside the kitchen / ladies toilet entrance (which we felt looked a little odd) and we had to experience constant through traffic and kitchen noise. Felt very let down and won't be back in a hurry.

“Good pub style food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

Steak was not what i expected for $30+ price range. Beers also pretty expensive for $13+ (large). Generally okay for pub style food though.

“Fab Food, Beer & Service!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

We stayed over Queens BIrthday Weekend and Hanmer (& Robbies) was humming! We ate there most nights as the combination of excellent food (must try the Pork belly special!), great speciality beers and friendly service was hard to surpass.

When it was cold outside their inviting warm fire drew us in every time!

The two ladies (Aroha & Michaela?) were fantastic with welcoming smiles and worked very well under the pressure of a full restaurant.

Would receomend to anyone visiting Hanmer Springs!

“Bar meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

It was an Ok meal, the beef Thai salad didn't have flavour I was expecting, there was something missing. (this is a meal I often select and was one of the worsest I've had) My partner had the all day breakfast and was satisfied with it , but wouldn't say it was the best he'd eaten. Service was good, . Typical pub meal is how I'd describe it.
