“Reasonable pub”

This pub really tries hard to provide OK food and service even on very busy weekends.
We were amazed that we got served so quickly and that the food was quite acceptable at the end of the long weekend. Charles Darwin slept here! That must count for something.

We took a large group (9 Adults and 7 Kids) and ended up with a lovely table outside on the grass. Food came out in pretty good time and was tasty (except for the Schnitty Burger which was a little disappointing compared to the actual schnitty!).

Outside there was lots of room for the kids to run and play. But do remember that it was early Autumn during daylight saving! Not sure how this place would go once it gets dark...

Only issue we had was when we asked about bringing such a large group. The wait staff looked like we had told them that a relative had died! She was not at all happy about the thought of having us there. What a way to feel welcome...NOT!

That didn't put us off coming as we had little other choice really!

Having lived in town for 30yrs and had many fabulous meals and great times it feels like over the last 5 years plus it just keeps getting worse. I want this place to be great but at our most recent dinner it was far from that. At a birthday dinner with about 15 people (4 were children with only basics) 3 adult meals were just totally lost, my mum at 76 was one of those, with no room for making up for it. When staff were told meals were missing it was an ‘oh well we’ve had issues’ with no option other than giving money back, not I’m sorry we will get those made and to you straight away. Meals they couldn’t account for were left on empty tables, we ended grabbing a cold meal from this table just so mum had something. There was a cue of people getting refunds. Very sad.

When we lived in Sydney we used to visit this place frequently as the y made fantastic pies.
Alas no more. The building seems run down and the dinning area is understaffed. We visited in a group of eight last Saturday night. You order and pay at the bar, but there was only one waitperson who was also serving the public bar. It took a while to order. There was a pie on the menu but it did not come near the pies of a few years back.
The place was pretty full and very noisy. Not a good experience.
This will be our last visit.
