Went for $10 lunch with Work colleagues today. Their $10 steak sandwich was cold pre-cooked steak (as in fridge cold) with salad on stale untoasted bread. No chips. My vegetarian pasta ($15!!!) was pasta, cream, packaged broccoli carrot and beans (from the freezer). Took ages... far too long as there were only two tables. Rubbish really, no wonder the locals don’t eat here. Central hotel hands down.

Had the roast lamb dinner with entree and desert. roast potatoes reheated, mint sauce brought out 10 min after meal. entree arrived during main course. cheesecake desert partially defrosted in places, staff untrained in dealing with public. On the plus side, the pub looked great in the rear view mirror

Being purple, this could only be a quirky place. We arrived as they were closing meal service but they provided us with a good meal. Good food, good drink, great people - what more could you ask?

We had lunch here, only $10, but the steak sandwich was overcooked and almost inedible. Not good for a pub in the heart of Australia's beef country! The staff were friendly, and the pub is a bit of an icon.

We were passing through, and shared the $10 purple burger, + $5 serve of chips. Good value, but don't reccommend the house white
