Just ate at the Fiddler and had the worst meal since being here in Australia for almost 3 months. I had Chicken, leek, and mushroom pie with green beans and gravy. The gravy was not enough to even cover the top of the very insipid coloured pie. My husband had Beer battered fish and chips. The food looked like it... More

Had not been to the Fiddler in years. So thought we would give it a go. Bad choice. We are a family so came for an early dinner. Ordered our meal. Nothing special and waited for 40 min for our meal. People who ordered after us got their meals before us. It was not busy as it was 5pm. When... More

We were in Rouse Hill area and looking for a good place to have a quick lunch. The Fiddler came to my mind, which is a a very popular and well known pub/restaurant in the area. It is on the Windsor road, a little away from the Rouse Hill shopping centre. I have visited this place a long time ago... More

We came here for Valentine's Day. I come here because it has good ambience. The food was ok, service was mediocre. I can understand they must be run off their feet on this particular day so I'll look past the fact it took over an hour to get a burger. We were quite happy to enjoy some drinks in the... More

Hubby and I thought we'd try this for a early Sunday breakfast before heading out for the day. Checked the website which says it's open at 8am on Sunday, we got there at about 8:15 and the place was all locked up, I phoned them to see if they do actually open at 8am and a very rude sounding lady...

Offering a great range of indoor and outdoor dining options. This place is very large and seating options are wide and varied, so you are not having to sit on top of other diners. There are suitable bars & areas just for catch up and a drink or coffee. Food was well presented , reasonably quick and in good portions.... More

Had our Xmas party here in December, so much finger food we coudnt eat it all, and very tasty it was too, the staff is very well trained and friendly, the drinks are average price for a big pub like this. Highly Recommended. Great for a quiet Breakfast too.

Three patrons in our group purchased the 400g Rump Steak and all cooked to Medium. The meat was very chewy and we had three different levels of medium. Hence, the steaks were average and meals not finished. Also, the included chips were old, reheated I guess. Oh, the Pies were just pies - nothing special as per the menu. Meal... More
