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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Had a family Sunday night dinner here - and it was a very busy night. Everyone on the table was happy with their meal … and between the 8 of us we tried a fair bit of the menu on offer. A few of us...ordered Chicken Schnitzels chips & salad , someone had steak and someone else had Seafood Basket. Thumbs up all round. I had a steak sandwich which was tasty with a great sauce / dressing. Lasagne also passed the test. Waiting time was a bit long but as mentioned it was extremely busy with several large groups.More

Ordered the roast beef but could only eat the potato and pumpkin, as the other Brochholi , Carrots , and Beans were almost RAW, HARD and unable to eat, needing a lot more cooking to be edible, whilst the beef was chewy and TOUGH. Very...dissapointed, and mentioned to staff who said they would pass this on to the chef.More

I booked a table for 12 people at this venue for 12.00pm today (Tuesday 31/01/2023) The table was ready and reserved for us even though we arrived around 11.45am. The service was incredible, the staff friendly, courteous and efficient. The food ordered by each individual...was excellent and throughly enjoyed. Some of these people had not visited the Vale Hotel previously and were impressed with the cleanliness, atmosphere and the short time inbetween ordering and receiving the food. No complaints whatsoever. Will be coming back soon.More

Following a disappointing service last month, our past visits have been excellent with great quality food and service, meals up to standard, served both hot and in good quantity, with Roasts, Chicken Parma, and Barramundi as examples. Great value for pensioner meals.

2 meals ordered were Spicy Chicken Wings and Calamari. The wings were heavily coated with very burnt thick batter, and were unpleasant. The Calamari was only luke warm, a bit rubbery and tasteless. This is the worst meal we have had in a very long...time of regularly visiting the restaurant and will not be reordered ever again.More

After having a hankering for some fried food, ordered the buttermilk fried chicken burger. To our dismay, it was a grilled chicken breast (grill marks visible). Serving some sauce/mayo on the side might also be nice too. The chips were cooked well and room for...kids. - KiranMore

Simply delivering meals to diners at the roughly the same time shouldn’t be that hard, the bistro was practically empty, but our table of 20 people got our meals delivered to us over a 30 minute period. Vegetarians get 2 main meal options, a vege...stir-fry (yawn) or a vege burger.More

Called into the Vale Hotel for a quick lunch,it wasn't all that busy so we were able to get a table without a reservation, the one thing that we did noticed was how sticky the table was. The food I thought was a little above...average for a pub meal,the blue grenader was quite tasty ant calamari that my wife had was all good as well, I would have given them a extra star if it wasn't for the sticky tableMore

The table is sticky parts that isn’t clean. Service; it took a WHILE to receive the meal. Meal: I had chicken pama and when I see it, it looked bunt not golden. The chips are not cooked to crisp. I recommend run away from it.

We often meet at the vale for a meal as it's in the middle of our houses. Meals are well priced, fast and not bad tasting. Play room is a plus and being in the entertainment book helps. This recent visit though I was disappointed...the tables were dirty and we were the first customers of the day. Then we had to ask on several occasions for things to be taken away. Staff members walked by full dirty cluttered tables (we had 3 booked) and didn't touch one plate. Only started clearing at like 3pm when they prob wanted us to leave so they could set up for dinner. Husband said Parma wasn't as nice as it has been either. Hopefully was just an off day.More
