We had the lunch rump steak and nachos. Beautifully cooked meat. Plenty of food for a great price. Their Caesar salad needed a little work.

Great lunches. So large, well presented, and very yummy. All at a great price. Never lets us down when we are in the need for a decent pub meal.

We were just interested in a no-frills meal, which is usually found at a hotel/pub. This restaurant opened at 5:30pm. Perhaps the management should tell the employees - who weren't ready. Wouldn't even take our order until 5:50. Chef didn't appear in the open kitchen until 6. Staff was disinterested and unmotivated. Can't understand why Australian tourism areas have such... More

Lots of value items on the menu. They have a couple of cheap pensioner days so check it out for great food at a good price. Plenty of food on the plate as well. Playground for the kids and an eatery outdoors as well.

We ate here twice because it had a good selection for the kids. Keep in mind that they do not allow you to take your left overs home.

Another pleasant evening with good food. We often visit the Smithfield Tavern and so far have not been disappointed. My wife loves the Thai Beef Salad and has it each time we visit, the quality and quantity has been consistently good. Pleasant atmosphere although can be a bit noisy at times. The wait staff are friendly and attentive and always... More

Stopped for a late lunch and had a steak and my colleague had the lamb shank. Both easily made gluten free which was great. Very generous serving and friendly staff.

Be sure to bring your appetite as the meals are very generous. We often stop in here for lunch. Have not been disappointed with any of our meals, but have been unable to finish one meal due to the huge portion. Lamb shanks were tender, roasts have real roasted vegies and steamed veg plus nicely carved meat. Steaks are good... More

Had dinner here last night, the staff were great & welcoming, & couldn't do enough for us. The meals came quickly, food was good, I had the Barrumundi - would highly recommend it & meals sizes amazing - possibly a little too big (I felt guilty not eating it all) Atmosphere was good, we'll be back

Thank Joskie
