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.

I met up with some friends in the collective bar. If there was anything wrong it was no sports outside. The staff said that they are investing in that shortly. Great pub

We arrived to be pointed towards our table. No explanation of where/how to order. No menus were given & my wine glass smelt like a dog wash. My husband was almost finished his meal before I received mine which was a salad!!. It only came...when we complained. The salad I ordered was underwhelming, tasteless and not what the menu stated. No pistachios , no pomegranate molasses and the pumpkin was undercooked. Average on all levels.More

Booked in for 1 night's accommodation. 1. Booked a spa suite, didn't get one. 2. Froze to the core, despite turning the heater on and turning it up to 31 degrees. 3. Pardon the pun, but I went into the bar for a "nightcap", I...ordered a port and was asked "what is port?"More

We held my mother’s 80th birthday in the Bellbird Room over the Easter weekend. All the pre-arrangements were made courteously and efficiently by the friendly staff. The room was the perfect size and every effort was made to meet our setup requirements. The food (platters)...was delicious and the service friendly and discreet. The decor is lovely and it’s a lovely space to be in. Everyone, especially Mum, had a ball and we all agreed we would highly recommend the York on Lilydale for another function.More

Beautiful lunch served quickly and nice and hot. 2 senior meals, very generous serves. Turkey roast was so succulent and vegetables lovely. Steak cooked perfectly. Great value for money. Pavlova with all the trimmings including ice cream $4.40, terrific value. Little bit noisy but too...be expected on Easter holiday as quite busy.More

We went to this restaurant for an early dinner and were amazed at the number of people doing the same. The restaurant was very busy, but all staff members were pleasant and efficient. We ordered our meal and were very pleased with how quickly it...was presented to us. I chose grilled fish with chips & salad. The meal was of average presentation, with four pieces of flathead on top of a large pile of chips. The salad consisted of a small bowl of leaves with two slices of cucumber and some grated carrot, topped with a dollop of mayonnaise. That is not my idea of a garden salad.More

Father’s Day Lunch and booked large table well in advance. Grandfather’s favourite pub Local (pops in regular for happy Senior meal). Special menu so I ordered Reef & Beef. Fair. Another had Ribs, less than fair. Best choices around table seemed to be chicken Parma...& Caesar salads. The grandfather’s Parma & another salad order came out last. In fact, they didn’t come out at all (30 minutes & counting while others ate). Fortunately, we kept food order receipt after being asked did we want a copy? At cashier we asked on missing meals update to receive answer “they were given”. After some polite negotiation, a better understanding & absent meals delivered. Clunky, frustrating service and food hit-n-miss. We put on brave face for Poppy.More

Driving by York we spontaneously decided to stop and have a bite to eat. Not having been here for many, many years we weren't expecting anything other than standard pub grub, well how it has changed and for the better, much better. Menu does have...all the standard fare one would expect from a bistro and a few nice surprises too. Both our meals (roast maple bacon, pumpkin salad & lamb shanks) were delicious. There is a specials board (visibly, above order counter) so maybe check that out too. All staff were friendly and polite, service prompt & fairly priced. Cody the barman made our drinks to perfection, all in all a lovely lunch. Well done guys & thanks for a great lunchMore
