Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Pretty dreadful experience - very little vegetarian food on offer, 21.90 aus dollars for a paltry amount of food - absolutely dreadful. I had 5 or 6 small stuffed mushrooms - they’d obviously sat on the side for a while as it wasn’t hot when I received them. My husbands pizza was 18 aus dollars whereas mine cost more yet twas tiny in comparison. Cannot understand how they could charge so much for so little food.

This isn’t our first time here at this establishment. But felt the need to share our experience. If you haven’t been here…. You need to visit. The Smoked brisket burger and chips was succulent, full of flavour. We ordered our meals and retrieved our beverages from the bar. Returning to the table to have it brought out soon after. The staff were welcoming and friendly, we Highly recommend! You won’t be disappointed ❤️

Staying at the Australia hotel Cessnock , 2 nights for the Sting concert at Binbadgen estate , This is a great location for concerts and through river coaches you can get pickup and return for $25 . This hotel is a classic and the atmosphere is just awesome, the bar staff here are such a credit to the owner and the restaurant food is second to none , which shows on a Friday night when seating is at a premium. I have stayed a couple of time and the food has been fantastic , I would say the bruschetta is a must and the pumpkin risotto and ceaser salad are also a 10/10 . At $90 a night and right in the huntervalley wine country this place is good value. Nice and tidy aircon rooms with shared facilities you can’t go past it for value .

Came in for dinner while we were in town visiting friends and staying at the Aussie Rest Hotel. Absolutely stoked with the atmosphere in their new outdoor dining area, and the quality of the food was top notch. The kids playground was a great touch, and the staff were super friendly. We'll be back again, thanks!

We went here on the advice of local. The dining room looks straight to the front doors and feels more like a wide corridor than a dedicated dining room. My wife and I both had gnocchi … the gnocchi was fried and tasted more like bland potato gems. I had chateaubriand for main which was very tender and delicious. The atmosphere is like an RSL club… family friendly, but a bit too noisy and too much coming and going to have a nice couple’s experience. Food: entree bad; main was wonderful. Atmosphere: good for families with young kids who make a lot of noise.

Located a short walk from Cessnock town centre, this is a good value local pub. Staff were friendly. Drinks were reasonably priced. And they have several lunch specials (including chicken wrap, fish & chips, banger & mash, schnitty and veggie lasagna) at the bargain price of $12. Visiting at lunchtime mid-week it was surprisingly busy, so if you’re planning on dining it may be advisable to book. The veggie lasagne was excellent - light, lots of veggies, and complemented with a generous side salad and chips.

Really good food at the Australia Pub - kicked off with duck sliders then tucked into their $12 of Bangers & Mash and Chicken, Leek & Camembert pie - they were special Then topped off with a Lemon Etonian mess. Service was right on point - quick, efficient and a little country banter. Can recommend absolutely.

We enjoyed the slow cooked duck. It was absolutely devine & far better than a pub meal. Staff were all friendly & helpful. The hotel was clean bright & vibrant! We thoroughly recommend this venue for a meal & drink, and assume the attached motel would be to the same standard
