    Half meals were good the other half were inedible. We came with 8 people. The who ordered steak or parmigiana enjoyed their meal. The whiting was the size of barramundi coated in a thick stodgy oil filled batter with dry fish inside that was like a cheap frozen kind from the supermarket. The kids meal cheese burger was a burnt dried out tiny meat pattie on a stale crumbly bun with a scraping of liquid cheese, the vegan gnocchi was like eating glue.. One meal came out half an hour before the rest.. Won’t be back anytime soon.

    The food was very poor quality, I didn’t eat my Caesar salad as the chicken looked grey and unappetising. My husband had a curry that has left him feeling I’ll and my friend had whiting that clearly wasn’t whiting and wasn’t fresh. Then our plates were left on our table and not cleared until after we left. In addition the meals took 45 minutes to arrive and the restaurant wasn’t very busy. A very poor dining experience

    Lovely ambience with trees and soft lighting. Excellent options on the menu, big serving sizes and fresh ingredients. Great service. We loved the space where kids are welcome and run free without bothering anyone. Would be great if the computer games were removed from the play area as it causes issues and requires supervision. Especially would be better and more in-tune with the surroundings if violent games were removed.

    Great adult meals - the steaks are excellent quality and I highly recommend them. We’ve dined here 3 times now and the steaks are great. Disappointed by one kids meal - burger pattie was burnt and the broccoli wasn’t properly washed and had sand in it. I also asked for a kids meal with chips and a separate side serve of vegetables and the meal came with a side of veg and no chips! One unhappy little customer - fortunately we had enough chips to avoid a melt down. The kids meals are cheap and nasty. The adult meals are really good quality, generous serves and highly recommended.

    The meals we ordered were cooked to our liking. However, when ordering drinks from the bar, the bar staff were quite slow and we got frustrated. It may have helped to have a second bar staff on as the queues were quite long. Also, there were no water jugs on standby for water (at the side or end of the bar like at other hotels) , resulting in a long wait in the queue. Overall it was only a fair experience for my 1st time dining at the Samford Hotel. Overall, disappointed and your management should be too.

    We have a table with friends ( they usually book ) at the trivia on Tuesday nights. It is a great night the trivial is really well run and lots of fun. The food is quite good but repetitive as it is the same menu every Tuesday with a special we have been going for about 6-8 months. The pizzas and calamari are very good but the dressing on the side salad is very greasy. Overall a great pub and a good night out

    We really like coming as it has the amazing play area This is why we will come again as a family However the service is getting worse, our meals this time were not very good. The Caesar Salad we ordered with prawns for an extra $9 for 3 tiny prawns?! The staff used to be more attentive. Might be something to review

    After previous experience here and reading other reviews, we went not expecting anything other than average. We were pleasently surprised. We had the rump steak special, the steaks were huge - however they were all tender and cooked perfectly(med rare) the chips and salad were fresh and plentiful. The service we recieved was friendly and timely. We will go back again and hope The Samford Hotel is able to be consistent.
