Nice old building from the street, walked through the restaurant entrance where there was a nice feeling and character. Entered the bar area, very plain and boring, felt like an old hospital ward, the bar tender could barley look at you let alone a greeting. This alone almost sent me on my way, though I thought I would stick it out (only just) I was a little surprised how expensive the meals were, I went with the rump chips and salad, the food was very good. Next time I’m in Moora I will seek alternatives.
When you arrive out the front of the hotel all you can see is advertising for the bottle shop but dont be put off by this as when you enter the property you will discover the hotel has genuine charm and the décor and fit out has real style. The hotel is managed extremely well, the staff are great and very helpful. We stayed in one of the rooms at the back of the hotel and it was a good size with every thing you needed and was furnished with flare. The nightly meal served at the hotel dining area was excellent value and offer good variety for our table of 4, with a wonderful seafood platter for only $35.00. At the end of the meal we were even offered compliment of the house a small special desert. They have a great outdoor beer garden and pool table for those who want a game. Well worth booking in.…
The taste of the So called drover "burger " itself was nothing special tho portions n size were huge, generous n well presented with lots of ingredients!! It looked more like a foot long subway sandwich than a traditional round burger tho :) but I felt somehow the bun used which was more of a sourdough or crusty bread jus didn't go well with the meat n ingredients....a soft bun type would have gone down better.....chips were pretty good tho!!! Very tasty, good size n jus the right amt of saltiness!! Wish it would have been crisper or chrunchier tho!! Customer service was sadly lacking with my burger taking over 0.5hr to b made which Is unheard off n the owner seemed very grumpy n unfriendly....
While looking very tired on the outside, our unit had fairly new carpet, ceramic tiles, lighting and paint job. The room had a microwave, toaster and kettle. It also had cutlery and crockery. Although, there was only one cereal bowl. Lighting was very good, but there wasn't a table in the room. It had a small wall mounted TV and soap was supplied. Unsecured, open air parking is available in front of the unit.
On a return trip from Geraldton on a Sunday we decided to take a trip through Mingenew and Moora as it had been a long time since we had driven that route. After finding each town closed (including a bunch of IGA stores proclaiming 7 day trading on their signage) we drove into Moora prepared to settle for service station takeaways. Just in case we did a lap of the centre of town and stumbled over this absolute diamond in the rough. The building is loaded with character and the range of food available was a total surprise. The special of the day was T-Bone steak at $19.50 but I opted for the usual T-Bone which included vegies at $36.50.My wife opted for the beef parmegiana and was delighted with her choice. The owners have been there for 4 years resurrecting the place and it shows. Their friendly service was a delight. So if you are passing through Moora or decide on a day trip to the country make sure you call in here.…
My husband and I had been driving since 5.30am in a truck from our hometown way down south. We were starving and called into The Drovers Inn expecting a “pub meal” we got much more than that and thoroughly enjoyed Cathy’s recommendation of the rib eye and the salmon. Truly beautiful, yummy food in a gorgeous setting. Highly recommend a visit .
Visited for dinner with two coworkers while in town. The food here is amazing. Two of us had the Barramundi topped in a prawn Mornay sauce. It was cooked to perfection and really delicious. Third colleague hade the irk belly which was huge portion and crisped to perfection and served with an impressive accompaniment of vegetables. Also a lovely dining area too
We stayed one night here during a wildflower viewing trip. Our motel style room was comfortable and reasonably well appointed but looking quite old and worn. The pub is a typical grand old country hotel. We had a few drinks and an evening meal and found all the staff friendly and efficient. The meal was good but not particularly good value. Being one of the few eating places in town, the dining room was very well patronised and there were no vacant tables at the peak time. Moora is a quiet town but if you want an early breakfast (6 am), morning tea or lunch, the nearby bakery is well worth a visit.
Called into Moora last Saturday and attended this establishment for dinner.What a pleasant experience,friendly staff,reasonable prices and very generous portions.Vegetables tasted as though they were freshly picked and fish and steaks were cooked to perfection.If you are looking for a nice meal in a very friendly atmosphere you can not go past.
Let's try the Drovers Inn for dinner. Not a great deal of choice in Moora. The hotel is am example of an old country pub all verandahs and fancy facades. Pretty well preserved. We were lucky the "modern" dining room was full so the owner relegated us the the old dining room. Wow just beautiful. Wonderful pressed iron ceilings, huge skirting boards and the original timber floors. The staff were attentive and the menu showed promise. Was this really a countrt pub. Well Val and I were surprised by the high standard of the fare, excellent and the wine list wasn't too shabby either. Bit of a drive from Perth but a must if you are in the area.
