    Food was very nice but attitude staff not knowing the difference in beers and then wanting you to still drink what you didn’t order chewing gum, we could see that some members didn’t want to be want to be their. We arrived early and let them know then received a missed call from the Apex bar so I let the gentleman on duty know that I had indeed let staff know we were told to move to our allotted table. Over all would not do the Apex again at all.

    We have stayed at Rydges Hotel Tailem bend many times, the food has never been very good. On this particular stay my partners steak was 60% fat so not edible and neither of the steaks had much flavour. The buffet breakfast is always either soggy, undercooked or cold. I would prefer an option of my own meal instead of buffet for breakfast and the dinner meals need to be looked at.

    Fantastic location & great centralized location for our Family to meet for Mothers day. Has so much potential but service just let experience down a little. Since I've worked in Hospitality on & off from Pub to Fine dining both in Australia & International, I just wanted to pass on some constructive criticism. Restaurant still setting up at 10 to 12pm for Booking, no one manning Bar, or if were there didn't know how to get into Till or Split bills, had to keep going to bar to get drinks, despite started with table service orders, orders that came out they didnt know which one was the Sirlion & which one was the Rump steak, plates not cleared away within 40mins of finishing meals, so I stacked dishes myself & moved to end of table so we had space as 8 guests to converse, staff standing around, so we left the table at 2pm around 1.5hrs after meals arrived & dishes still there. So much potential to be great but just someone as Manager/Supervisor to assert some control & structure.

    Food was fresh and tasty. Staff were lovely, bit overwhelmed at lunchtime.. felt sorry for them.. maybe lunchtime extra staff required?

    Lovely pub type meals. Was a bit expensive as 15% PH surcharge. Lots of new staff training but overall good service and meals.

    We were escorted to our table and before we could even sit down the guy asked what we wanted, said we would need a few moments to look at the menu at least. Then we didn’t see anyone for another 35mins, so I stood at the counter to let them know we were ready to order, not 1 person acknowledged my existence in the 5 mins I stood there….so I went to our room quickly and again stood at the counter, the same lady who walked around me 3 times still failed to acknowledge that I was standing there for another 5 mins. Someone eventually came to the table to take our order. We ordered 3 mains, a starter and a drink. Starter came out and no drink so had to politely remind them. $16 for 3 prawns wrapped in dumpling paper. $28 for 6 rings of calamari on a large bed of rabbit food. $30 for 5 thinly sliced pieces of pork belly (which tasted old) on an entire packet of tasteless vermicelli noodles, literally. And $39 for a rump steak, was pretty well cooked apparently. It was a little busy (not packed) I must admit but even saying that the food was nothing more than robbery and an insult to people’s intelligence who dine there. The staff we did encounter were friendly and I didn’t usually write reviews, I just don’t come back. Read some reviews after we ‘dined’ there and my review pretty much echoes other reviews and I’m surprised the star rating is even a 3/5 tbh. Ps…..you’re lucky I wrote this review and not my partner. Save your money, head the the Wellington or even Wok in a box. I hope they listen to the reviews and turn it around

    The waitress had her phone in her pocket and it was ringing away while she was taking our order. Soft drinks were flat, they were replaced with equally flat drinks. Kids pasta was supposed to have Parmesan, it did not. Brisket was tasteless and the char corn was not charred but mouldy, 2 schnitzels were ordered, 1 was lovely the other was dry and had an odd taste. Have been here numerous times before with friends and never had an experience like this, unfortunately will not be back.

    Great service and good. Very small round table though. Tricky to fit water jug, glasses and our drink from the bar.

    For my first time at the Bend, it was a very pleasant experience with good service and good food. We even got to see a range of cars/drivers testing their skills on the track. Next time I'll bring my 'Beast'.
