It was really good serves we got our food really fast and the waitress were really friendly and helpful and the food was delicious and we got what we paid for.
very helpful staff, great meals, and although their was a large party in the bistro our table had no problem having lively conversation we will be back there in there the future.
The choice of food on the menu was substantial and the quality was excellent. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Overall, an excellent experience and we will visit again.
Pork cutlet was delicious and great kids spag bol. Chef was also happy to make plain steamed veggies. Not too busy so food arrived quickly.
Excellent beer selection (and well priced); good wine selection (although some a little expensive); wide variety of food, good tasty meals - the four of us all had something different and we were all happy with our respective meals. Had to send a very ordinary cappuccino back, but the replacement was better. Very busy and unfortunately noisy because of that, despite carpeted floors. Overall, very good and would return.
The Dining Room is nice and bright with linen tablecloths which is so rare in a pub these days. Food was excellent. Very big helpings that some of us could not finish, much to our dismay. Will certainly go again.
Great now that the pokies have been pushed to one end and practically invisible as these were an eye sore and brought the atmosphere of the hotel right down. The hotel is more vibrant now and the meals are lovely and staff very friendly.
The newly renovations of the dining area is brilliant. A large selection on menu but the meals are huge . I wish staff would not clear tables until everyone has finished their meal on the table . A pet hate and service 101.
This is my local pub, and I have eaten there quite a few times. The service is good, the food is good, the decor is not to my taste but I don't care enough to complain about it.
I great place for a local meal. The Bistro, not the Sports Bar. The portions are a reasonable size and everything is cooked well. Tragically, they've taken the Salmon Croqusttes off the menu -SHAME ON THEM.
