    I ordered a rare steak when it came it was clearly medium+. The waitress immediately agreed, probably too long under the warmers and took it back. She came back offered us a drink as an apology. When I got my meal back it was a perfect rate. Mistakes happen but I call that excellent service.

    Just bad luck on the day. Food was very nice. Well we were excited to come to your hotel. Was our family of ten. There was a mix up with table bookings. We just didn’t like the way the girl at front desk spoke to us. Her manner was very unfriendly. Insisting our children be quiet. As there was a wake next to us. I brought to her attention her attitude. I think she was embarrassed as we were very polite and my daughter in-law was most uncomfortable with her manner towards her. Not a nice welcome that’s for sure. Plus I had just encountered a horrendous customer in your bottle shop. He was the most aggressive abusive customer. I was scared for the girl on the counter. He wanted to smash your shop up. His language to her was beyond revolting. But I’m sure it was all caught on camera. I then saw him in the bar upstairs. Quite an ordeal actually

    We really enjoy this pub - whether it’s with our toddler or a romantic dinner, it’s got different seating options available for any occasion. The food is always good and comes out fast , however steaks are cooked on too low of heat & need more seating to be less tough. That said we’ve always been happy with everything else on the menu! Service is great - staff are friendly, helpful and attentive- great Pub!

    This was a great mid-week lunch venue as part of a hinterland drive and stopover at Palmwoods. We have dined here on many occasions and have never been disappointed. A good menu selection allowed us to share plates. Our server was exceptional in her friendliness and attention to our questions about the menu.

    Food took over 20 minutes to arrive though very little people dinning. Staff where happy, helpful and kind. Place was clean and tidy. Kids meals where tiny, mains where a good size, basic, aliitle messy presentation but yummy. Had to wait both times at bar for approximately 5 mins as no one was stationed there. Over all happy but could of been better .

    Our only complaint was we were seated in the very back corner of the dining room as there was only one table for two people but there were plenty of other tables for four available. The food and service was great.

    The surroundings are pleasant and the staff is helpful and cheerful. The servings were very generous and nicely presented. Most of us were happy with our food, but almost none were able to finish the plate. I had the fisherman's Plate (lunch size) and found the fish very heavily crumbed and the coconut prawn (1) heavy work. Chips were good and the salad tasty. The trains going past were noisy but not very often. In all a very nice experience.

    What a busy place on a rainy day - every family was there! Great selection on the menu. Daily specials. Our friends had the daily special of veal roulade - veal wrapped around asparagus, fetta and sundried tomatoes, served on mash. Looked interesting but needed a jus/gravy on it. It was dry. Other meals were delicious, especial Jampur's Tibetian beef curry.

    Very busy, had to wait over an hour for our food to be served - which for us tends to take the edge off what was hoped to be a great experience.
