When do I start?!! Firstly, we waited about 10 minutes to be seated before realising no one was coming to help so we seated ourselves. Then we went to the counter to order and the waitress was not polite or friendly, she seemed like she didn't want to be there. Oysters were also not available. Went back to our table... More

Been coming here for the last few years always outstanding service and food. However last nights dinner was amazing. The lamb rump with yoghurt dressing and cous cous salad excellent. The rib eye was also outstanding. Annie's lane cab merlot made the meal complete. Many thanks

Great rib-eye cooked a lovely rare. The barman was great in his beer & wine knowledge. We would have stayed longer but a day in the surf took it out of us.

This pub is just about perfect in every way for me and for my taste. I don't like anything too polished and sterile. If it feels like I'm in a laboratory or a chemist I will generally feel uncomfortable. It can be super classy but it has to also have character. The British can be slightly rough around the edges...

Can always rely on the food and service here. Always delicious, staff exceptional (especially Garath and Amy) and always feel so comfortable dining in this environment.

Ate here on a public holiday and the surcharge was 10%. The parmi was awful. Had we not been starving we wouldn't have eaten it. A pub classic in Aus done so badly. Chips were tastless and the little side salad was undressed.

Last night we took overseas guests to this hotel.They just wanted to go to an Aussie pub and were not disappointed.The menu is quite extensive and we all decided on different food. They chose the kangaroo, pork ribs, scallops and prawns with choritzo, steak with mushrooms and steak with horseradish cream plus some of the meals came with chat potatoes... More

I would have thought in this day and age service, quality and courtesy was a given. Service, waited an hour to be seated! Quality, my food was hardly cooked and the portion sizes were unacceptable! Courtesy, was asked by the waiter "if I had a f#*#en problem" when asking if we would be seated soon. Was extremely embarrassed in front... More
