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 lunch here recently, the food was fine and the staff friendly. I WOULD have given a four star rate but for the state of the mens’ toilet. It is disgusting. The door to the toilet is usually wedged open and anyone outside can see...the males at the urinal. So knock out the wedge to close the door. Then, there is only one small cubicle for #2. The door cannot be locked as the lock has been smashed off. It was in this condition one YEAR ago. Maintenance is not a priority, obviously. The place needs work, it is rather rough around the edges.More

Our Saturday lunch was excellent. We were served by friendly and helpful staff. The lemon pepper calamari and rump steak were both exactly right. We've had plenty of very poor calamari it's not simple to get right, and this pub did. Seniors serves were both...generous. We sat outside on the large balcony which was neither overly noisy nor crowded. This is an authentic country pub not the modern manufactured sort, and we were so glad we tried it. Like many other reviewers we found a comfortable atmosphere and good food - recommended.More

We went there for dinner and the food was quite good. Fresh and tasty as well as generous serves. One small complaint, to the lass with the long hair, please smile at customers and be courteous. Remember us customers keep you in a job!

We just had a Christmas in July event for our club at the Meeniyan Hotel. I don't often write reviews, but I can't leave this one alone. The staff, service and food were exceptionally good. We arrived and the table was set up for a...traditional Christmas meal and at the end they supplied us with Christmas Pudding. The staff were, as alway, extremely friendly and helpful, with Christmas hats to really help the festivities along. The food was wonderful. I go to this pub for lunches regularly and get consistently great food and warm, friendly service, but today they went above and beyond to make it great. Thank you to all involved for making it a great day. We all had a fantastic time and hope we can come back as a club soon for another lunch.More

Stopped in for an unplanned lunch after a long drive. Never been before but walked passed and saw some of the meals. We ordered fish and chips, Nasi Goreng, kids nuggets. None disappointed. Best pub meal ever

I booked a table but something had gone wrong and they were apologetic - negotiated a table with a promise to eat quick! Calamari with chips and salad came quick but chips were over cooked and salad was a bit slimey - plus it was...odd to have pear and Parmesan with calamari! Calamari was ok but def from freezer to deep fryer. $26 was a bit steep but I guess it is the country. Ok meal but not memorable at all.More

I've always given this hotel top ratings but today was a bit bizarre considering we're in the middle of a pandemic. I was given a table and placed my order. After a couple of minutes some guy without a mask came and kneeled behind my...table fiddling with his phone charger for at least 5 minutes. The staff didn't ask him to put a mask on. I got up to get some fresh air and while I was doing that another guy without a mask came over to my table and started talking above the table with his belly resting on the table. I opened the door for some fresh air and the first guy came and closed it. Then it blew open (not very cold) and the second guy came over and closed it. After about 3/4 hour I asked where my meal was and they told me it would be another quarter of an hour. That usually means they'd forgotten about the meal and if they hadn't the least that they could do was tell me that there was a delay. It was well over an hour in total before it arrived. The as soon as I'd eaten my plate was whipped away and the waitress said she wanted to "rescue the menu" then another one came to take the menu (it was a little while later as I was doing stuff on my phone, but they've never been so grabby before). All in all an unsatisfying meal. The salad was fresh and nice, the meat was passable (probably would have tasted better without worrying about people breathing all over me and my table). Did I mention that I'm vulnerable to Cov-19 in two different ways and rarely eat indoors but tried it for once. For me it was a scary and frustrating experience.More

A warm welcome and a classic meal - the special pork roast with gravy and vegetables - you just can’t go wrong. Extensive menu with lots of tempting dishes.

Although we were only one of three couples in the bistro for lunch, I am so glad that we were there! The food was absolutely brilliant. The blue cheese, spinach and pinenut gnocchi was so yummy. My husband had the roast pork dinner and was...also very happy. The service was a little slow, but very friendly. I loved looking at the old photos of the area, and the fire was wonderfully cosy.More

Staying in Meeniyan for the weekend we decided to come down for a meal on the Thursday night.... it was fabulous! The gummy fillets were delicious, fresh and melted in your mouth, the pork schnitzel was also popular and very tasty. Service was great and...a decent drinks list as well. Angus looked after us very well. Would definitely come back again when in the area.More
