I understand it was a busy day but they seam to have no systems in place, staff training is lacking and the food was very average. I even had one staff member say I don't know anything we are just filling in. Took over 30 mins to get a beer. Won't be back.

We waited 1 hour for cold eggs benny and hard poached eggs. This would have been fine but the place was empty! Only three tables occupied in the entire venue. Two stars are for the location of the venue, very pretty surrounds. Probably won't be back.

This is a nice place for lunch. There is a massive outdoor area most of which is undercover and there is a stage for the awesome sunday session music. It is a little bit expensive the last time we went there but the food is good.

The staff are not properly trained the meals are restaurant prices and worse than old fashioned pub standard. Recently a group of 5 of us went out for a small celebration and when seated we were given dirty plastic menus.

We met friends and family for lunch the food was really good there was inside and outside dining . The staff were very friendly . It was a very hot day so we sat inside if they had fans outside it would be much better. There is a small play ground to keep the kiddies amused.

Stopped into this pub on the way home from exploring Cedar Creek Falls with a few friends, as we had heard good things about this hotel. Upon arrival got a very rude vibe from the staff, after looking through the menu and realising how ridiculously expensive it was for a pub in the middle of no where. We decided to... More

Had dinner there as we stayed at the hotel. $29 for a chicken parma is a bit on the high side for a pub meal. It was well cooked but light on the topping side for my liking and price charged. The bar is cash only, they do have an atm on site. It seems the cash only thing is... More
