We prebooked the Forsayth by Night tour which was $64 a head including a two course dinner. Arriving at 6.00 p.m as requested saw us not getting our meal (which was a pineapple pizza or supreme pizza and chocolate pudding) until after 7.00 p.m. and having to rush it to be ready for the tour. It took 15 minutes to line up to order our meals. Buying a drink later took 15 minutes. The pub was packed but there was simply a shortage of staff to cater for customers. Surely if there are x people staying in the accommodation part of the hotel and y people booked for the tour, management can determine the likely number of customers? After all, it is the only place to eat in town. The man who arrived to take the night tour pitched in and helped serve behind the bar to shorten the lineup. We then went on an hour long walk around the town by torch light hearing about the history of the town. The walk was a choreographed digital experience with several “characters” regaling us with humorous stories about the history of the town. It even concluded with a ghost story, based on real events. Without the tour this would have been a one star rating based on the service - which was virtually non-existent. The tour was fun. Was the evening worth $128 for two? That's debatable but you're not overwhelmed with choice and the tour was pretty well done.

I was recently part of a tour group, travelling on the Savannahlander. I was one of the people who were accommodated at Finnigan's Rest. We were served dinner and breakfast as part of our tour. I was a solo traveller in the group, and must say I was a little disappointed with the tiny room I was provided with. Yes, it was clean and comfortable, but oh! such a small space.

This has been the slowest service ever i saw. 29 mins queue to get a drink in the evening. 22 mins wait for my wife to get one Egg? They cooking toast 2 slices a time, for 40 guests. To me an example of management not caring about serving guests as they are the only option in town. Older folks stood waiting for so long. Most in our group are unhappy. Shame there is no option in town. Rooms are fine and setting is fine, but the service is awful

We booked the lantern tour which started with a two-course dinner at the hotel. My spanish mackerel was beautiful and the chocolate cheesecake was the best I've ever had. A lovely savannah guide then took a group of us on a lantern tour of the town. The lanterns we carried were also speakers which provided part of the commentary on the tour. The highlight was (of course) the haunted house at the end. Forsayth is a tiny place, campground is excellent, pub is great, tour was fantastic.

We stopped into the pub for dinner after a fantastic day at Cobbold Gorge. Only one staff member meant there was a reasonably long wait at the bar to be served for drinks or food. While we waited we read the blackboard menu which was only grilled food, a choice of steaks, chicken schnitzel, beef schnitzel etc and pork chops, with the Wednesday special of roast dinner, a choice of chicken or beef. When we were finally served we told them our choices only to be told ‘ there’s only chicken or beef schnitzel, take it or leave it!’ We were hungry and had a long drive ahead of us so we opted for a chicken schnitzel each. It’s very difficult to ruin a crumbed chicken and chips but this place managed too. The chips were undercooked and were hard and cold in the middle and the schnitzel was mass produced frozen crap that was deep fried and over cooked and dried out. Unhelpful, unfriendly staff and crap food means we definitely will never return.
