The food was good, the prices were OK although drinks a little high. I would prefer table service rather than getting up from the table. We were the only patrons on a Sunday. Something has gone wrong but what?

We haven’t been here for a few years after a particularly bad experience, so we were nervous. The food was great, as was the service and staff. Only thing that stopped me giving it 5 stars was the lack of choice in wine (the couple of wines I asked for that was on the wine list, they didn’t have) and they missed my son’s freak shake, but soon rectified this. Overall, great experience and we will definitely be coming back!

The staff were very helpful regarding alterations we requested in the menu. The food was lovely! The only downside was that most people departed fairly early, at about 8.30ish, and the kitchen closed before 9pm.

Communication between staff was the biggest issue. Lady taking orders at counter was distracted and couldn’t care less about us or our order- just paying. Was actually sad to see her lack of care.

Our groups arrived in 2 groups. One was out on table 1&2 and the other on table 32. Opposite corners. Clearly there was a mistake but there was no cooperation from floor staff to
Help move tables together and the place was 95% empty.

Kids meals are over priced for the re heat quick small meals they are. Sorry but a cheap pizza and a hand full of chips is not worth $12. Kids playland was good.

Adults meals ok. Freak burger and milkshake was well overpriced at $32. Tasted good but you couldn’t see the value. The cream and chocolate was all over the base of the burger and couldn’t be eaten. Very sloppy and messy. Other meals were ok.

A big issues was the length of time the meals took to get to the table. Kids meals super quick. Adult meals around 25 mins and the place was 95% empty. I would dread to see how long it takes when it’s full.

Overall 3/10 and the owners should spend more time in the place talking to customers paying nearly $300 for a few meals because it was a disappointing trip for a birthday celebration.

Meals are ok
Dessert was terrible- flavourless, and very messy
Hot chocolate was made with a cheap syrup and meringue not chocolate and marshmallows and delivered to our table after we requested it twice - late
Staff were disinterested!
Not really that great

Unfortunately all I can say for the Kings Creek Hotel was that our little one was happy with the playground. However the food was very poor. Frankfurt hotdog, roast lamb and veggies were terrible. Iced chocolate was warmer than the hotdog.

Very average, quite expensive for a pub bistro. Food was ok but nothing special.

I had the freak burger $32. About $10 over priced
No real specials on the hidden specials board. And specials board was out of date apparently- as items on it were not available.
Service was average, pre booked with high chairs, but had to ask for the high chairs once seated.
I’d been there a few years ago, it’s definitely gone done hill since then.

I definitely wouldn’t go back

The service was appalling. We waited over 2 hours for the meals and it wasn’t even busy. We went up to the counter 5 times and asked how much longer they would be and the response was ‘there next’. When 2 of meals came the picked them up to take them back even though they had been cut and started to be eaten , I said you can’t give it to someone else they have started eating them! And her response was I’ve been told to take them. Another meal was a raw hamburger when I complained to the chef he said it’s suppose to be like that, I don’t think we eat mince raw and demanded my money back. the manager came and in the end and gave us free coffees which they couldn’t even get that order correct, one person had 4 black coffees and to top it off they couldn’t find the birthday cakes. Save your time and your money.

We had a fabulous night out. Great staff :) easy to deal with. Only a few downers kids arcade games a few weren’t working we had some upset kids. Also the kids meals were very small. Not worth how much we paid for them. 3 nuggets and a small handful of chips. Kids were hungry as soon as we got home. Overall we had such a great night thanks again

We have been staying at Pt Leo a few times now and have been going to a different pub. The service was terrible and the food not much better. We decided to try Kings Creek Hotel instead even though it was a bit further to drive. Couldn't believe how good the service was and the food was amazing. They 2 great kids areas, one for the little ones and another with arcade games for the bigger kids. Couple that with the open fireplace it made for a great night. Will definitely be back and will highly recommend it to others.

We paid $12 for a kids meal that was a McCain's singles pizza and chips, the rest of the meals were just as disappointing. Nothing was fresh, it all looked like it was from the frozen foods section at Coles or Woolies. We had the seafood plate, canelloni, chicken coriander taco and chicken parmigana. I would never go back and not recommend anyone to go either.
