Well what can i say, excelent food, nice choice of beers and entertainment, and staff in the main pub very friendly and serve with a smile. i would have given a 5 star rating only for one small thing. As a visiting pomme who enjoys a drink and a small flutter on the horses/dogs i thought the Highway was the perfect place for me, until i tried to place a bet. the man in the T.A.B bar who i discovered was the manager (middle aged man who is not tall and wears glasses) made negative comments when i filled my slip out incorrectly, i actually thought i had misheard him and carried out my next bet, which again i had made a slight error due to the fact i had never used the system before, i asked him before submitting my slip was it ok, and he replied it aint rocket science mate carnt you see i am busy. i had family with me who got the same treatment off him, including my elderly dad. so what would have been a 4 or 5 star rating is only a 3 now and advise use the main bar only as it is very good, but dont go in the back bar unless you want offending

We dined in the bistro at the Highway Hotel for the first time a few months ago and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the service and food we received. We have come back several times and each time we've received fantastic sevice from very attentive staff! They are well-trained and thorough. We had the American platter which can get a bit dirty when you're eating out - it comes with cheeseburger sliders, shoestring fries, pork spare ribs and chicken wings - is delicious! They also have the usual pub fare (but a bit fancier!) and they do a fantastic steak!!
