7 family members enjoyed their meals in what was a rather nice atmosphere. Salad bar was quite well stocked, fresh and had quite good variety. Meals were good value. It wasn't spectacular by any means, but all meals were quickly prepared and served within 15 minutes and well presented. A good meal and we will return again

Our table was close to the wooden life size sculpture of a seaman in action setting a subtle mood, reinforced by nautical images on the walls. The meal was ordered from their menu, but complemented by a large selection of hot foods and a salad bar, presented for self-service.

Meal was disappointing. Roast lamb was cut thick and was chewy. Our meals took awhile after we ordered to arrive yet those around us their meals become before ours yet we ordered first. Staff pleasant and salad bar is very well stocked. All fresh and well presented. Will give it another try.

We lunch at the Middleton Tavern whenever we are in the area. The Seniors lunch menu is good, and the meals include both a vegetable and salad bar.The staff are very efficient and I would recommend giving it a try.

Good food. The specials offer excellent value and include a drink in the price. Friendly staff added bonus.

Our group of 4 adults and a young teen visited the tavern to give the business another try, having not attended the venue for many years following a previous less than average experience. We are very regular diners and can comment based on a very broad level of experiences across Australia and internationally. On arrival at around 6.30 the staff... More

We arrived 15 minutes before the kitchen was closing but it wasn't a problem. Staff allowed us to go in and order. They left the salad bar open longer to accommodate us. The staff very friendly...salads really lovely and plenty to choose from... Meals were very nice and plenty on the plate...definitely will go again.

Middleton Tavern is quite close to us and we have been there often as a couple or with friends. The specials are always tasty and the staff friendly. It is quite a cosy yet elegant hotel. There are other meals to choose from on the main menu that are not overly expensive

Good for a cheap lunch. They have a fire in the dining area which was great for the cold day we were there. Remember it's a bistro and you'll have a cheap lunch. Don't go if you want a 5 star dining experience.
