Look, we love going to the Crafers but on this occasion, one of us had a course which was not up to standard. The steak in the ‘Steak Frits’ was indigestible because it was largely gristle. Tasty, but gristle nonetheless. The waitress responded to my comment and arranged for a replacement steak. This was better, but still tough. Anyhow, credit to your staff, unprompted, they did not charge for for the course. Cheers Peter

Crafters Hotel is an enjoyable dining experience. There is an extensive list of craft beer available. Whilst my meal of Salt & Pepper Squid was only average, my wife really enjoyed her Barramundi.

Hi, the atmosphere at the Crafers is great, unfortunately the food let it down.
Presentation was great but actual taste wasn't. I had Whiting which was good - the tartare sauce was almost solid, the chips could have been oven fries - tasteless so I left most of them, the pickled salad was limp and tasteless. My wife had the tarte with salted beetroot - actually unpleasant to taste and the tarte was equally flavourless.

Always an enjoyable meal and good service. This last time there was a minor misunderstanding between one order placed and what was delivered. However the waiter owned the error and fixed the problem right away. That's good service. Therefore we all had a good meal and a happy time.
Others rate the wines good quality and a good range and good value. I dont partake but go with their reviews.

We very much enjoyed our time at Crafers Hotel. The waiting staff were attentive and the meals were superb, including the amazing desserts. It was like being at a restaurant. We will definitely be back.

We had a booking for 1.00. We arrived on time.
Ordered our meal at 1.20
We got our meals at 2.45.
No complimentary coffees ,just we are sorry ,we are very busy.
Being a public holiday ,surprise ,surprise we were busy. Poor management.
Very poor particularly after I praised your establishment to my guests when choosing the Crafers!! Extremely disappointed.

Five friends. including a visitor from Canada, enjoyed great service and beautiful delicious food. Steak,chicken, veal, hamburger and fish were all high quality meals. The steak was served with delicious vegetables.
Deserts and coffee were all excellent to finish off a great day at a great hotel.

Well worth the drive from North Haven. 5

5 out of 5 !

Amazing right from arrival. The food was beautiful and tasted even better than it looked. The Service was the best i have had in a very long time. Call out to the Sommelier, if she wasn't then she is phenomenal. I didn't catch her name, but I will be back based on her service.

Fantastic, only thing to comment on would be that we didn’t get asked enough if we would like more drinks!
We had to ask a waitress for more drinks.

Very worthwhile cuisine. The menu is inviting and I can’t wait to go back. Beer and wine list is good. When you are with 3 or more people the noise level is not intrusive. Serve sizes are healthy. Staff are very friendly and attentive.

Celebrating our Wedding Anniversary at the Crafers Hotel on Sunday evening was a delight in many ways. The atmosphere, friendly greetings and decoration are very pleasant indeed. The absolute highlight was the food - the new French chef produced simply wonderful food.

Mine and partners meals excellent. Hamburger asked for well done, got medium, other guest seemed to eat all hers. We were served sweets with a fork, Profiteroles and incream, when the coffee came, we used the tea spoons. Might think about that one. Good to see you so busy.........

We enjoyed our squid and chicken.... cheers.

The Crafers Hotel has been done up beautifully! The issue we experienced was the breakfast meals were luke warm. There is nothing like a nice “hot” breakfast.

Very happy with service and food. Manager was very attentive and pleasant gentleman (knows his stuff), everyone loved their food from Prawn Barramundi Curry, Cheese Souffle, Schnitzel, Burger and Salads, we all had a taste of each others. Always difficult to find a place that is quiet enough that we can all talk freely without raising our voices, this was perfect and we were in a very comfortable booth. Will definitely be back. Thank you.

It was a very busy Sunday lunch but even still, the wait for our meals was more than it should have been. The service in general was very good, but let down by the wait. The food (when it did arrive) was excellent and we all enjoyed our meals. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to heading up in winter to enjoy the lovely fireplace beside the bar.

Potato fondant was no good. Just tasted like a boiled potato. Presentation of veggies served with chicken was poor. Very expensive considering quality of food

Three went for a family reunion. Matt, maitre d', knew me by name and saw us to a table and seated us at once before offering drinks. Soon a waitress appeared to take orders and Matt was on hand to answer a few questions about French cooking terms - well done in a friendly helpful manner. The somelier likewise dealt with the meaning of pinot meuniere. All good. We could hear ourselves talk easily and our food appeared in a very timely manner, nothing hurried, but nothing had to be asked after either - service just happened as it should. Desserts too and we settled and left with a farewell from Matt and the somelier. An extremely pleasant evening.

Very high quality meals and impeccable service. We were seated in one of the booths and it was very comfortable. In a group of 6 everyone enjoyed themselves hugely and the banter from the Hostess was brilliant. The pick of the meals was the bouillabaisse. definitely going back to try other dishes.
