    Last night was quite a disappointment. The venue was very noisy . My steak was half raw. When I asked for the bill the guy started cleaning the table half hazardly & spilled food on my partners lovely new outfit . Not very impressed. He took our plates away & came back again without the bill . I had to stress to him I wanted the bill . He finally delivered . I spent years in the hospitality industry & we always gave the customer what they wanted & then cleaned up the table after they have left . Out first time disappointed with the venue

    The guy in charge of the bistro on Friday night had a very calm, friendly way about. His attitude translated into the behaviour of the staff. I felt like I was back in Nth Queensland with some old-fashioned hospitality. Good job👍

    The two young women waiting our table were really excellent. Both the Scot and the other lass had lovely, bright personalities, and looked after us very efficiently and with much intelligence and charm. They are both a lovely, brilliant asset to The Orrong!

    Waiter(apparently been doing the job for 20 years) took our order. My entree and main course arrived together!!! To top it off they tried to charge us $110 for a bottle of wine we NEVER had.

    Excellent pub food and friendly service from all staff. Pub is very popular (deservedly) so can get noisy but having multiple rooms & bar areas provides opportunities to find a quieter eating area.

    Lovely local pub grub in a beautiful wood-panelled room full of period features, this place is a terrific weekday (although we were there on a Friday night, when it was lively but still relaxed) haunt. Unpretentious but attentive service. Good wine list. Highly recommend.

    A family fave no matter what time of the week. A glitch with timing of our dessert that really wasn't an issue on the night for us but worth a mention here as it was perfectly and professionally handled. Love it here. Always.
