Had dinner here and really enjoyed it. A good selection of meals and friendly staff. Our meals were a bit delayed and manager was very apologetic and gave us free drinks while we waited. Meals were certainly worth the wait, large servings and well cooked. Certainly will come again.

We were a large group booked for dinner on a busy night. Having been here previously but some time ago, the renovations took me by surprise and were fantastic. The atmosphere was very welcoming and the restaurant tastefully decorated. My partner and I both had the twice cooked pork from the chefs specials and it was amazing !! The flavours... More

Today I ordered twice cooked Pork Belly from the specials menu and it was the best dish I've had in recent memory! Perfect balance of all the flavours and the meat was cooked to perfection - amazing!! The other guests dining with us also enjoyed their choices. Such a shame this restaurant is 1200km from home!!

Its a lovely hotel, picturesque and historic. Be sure to look at the historic plaques on the walls of the bar, really interesting. There is lots of information about the filming of Baz Luhrman's Australia which used the Pub as a set. We had dinner in the bistro out the back of the pub. The food was ok, its fairly... More

Surprisingly modern with friendly staff and a buzzy atmosphere. It feels like more of a city pub. I had the red throat emperor fish with a couple of prawns and lychee salad for a whopping $38 and when I asked for bread was told that I had to buy a side which cost another $8! Expensive for a country town... More

The outside of the hotel is currently undergoing some renovation, which is a little off- putting, but the dining room and outdoor eating areas have been completely renovated beautifully. The atmosphere is fantastic and the food complements the decor. It was really a great restaurant and I cannot wait until I get to go back. 5 stars!

Thank Fi-Fi4740
