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.

A friendly venue with old style relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. You can eat in the dining room or in the bar. Both are good. We love to have a Parma there. Cozy sitting by the coal fire on cold evenings too.

What a great spot. Only just discovered it. Reasonably priced meals and drinks. Lovely beer garden set in a beautiful old building. Seniors menu. Sitting inside near the beautiful fire place looking out the window seeing people sitting outside overpriced cafes shivering in the cold.

The dining lounge is a quiet area, with a Great War Honour Roll and colourful windows depicting diggers in action. The staff are polite and do a good job in keeping the place clean. You can order food here, but have to go next door...to the bar for drinks. The food is good quality, but geared to the elderly clientele (youngest people are the staff). It is much like a suburban pubMore

Last night we had our first takeaway meal from the new St Georges Dining Menu. We decided to have the Thursday night Parma Special which included 2 parmas (of your choice) from the extensive Parma menu, salad, chips and a Sqeeler (1 litre of tap...beer) for $40. It was great value for money and a large serve (which we couldn't finish). The meal was perfectly cooked, hot on arrival, the chips were crispy ( always a challenge) and the salad was delicious. Definitely excited to have takeaway again choosing from their extensive menu at very reasonable prices.More

Lovely place. Lots of seating and a warm cosy fire in one area. TV screens in all areas. We had dinner Senior meals are priced $13 for 1 meal $16 for 2 course and $19 for 3 course. We chose the 3 course. The entree...I had was the Calamari and salad perfect cooked calamari and crisp fresh salad. Main was the fish and chips with salad. It was the perfect size just a nice small piece of Fisn crisp salad yum chips. Dessert I chose was Pavlova with strawberries and whipped cream. Yum but a bit small. Dining room is a tad old but there is a warm fire lots of seating available and friendly staff. It also has an outside area in the front and to the back is a small smokers area with overhead heaters to keep you warm. Toilets were very clean and tidy. Will be going again.More

The original Intent was to meet a mate, catch up on gossip and go home, however a group near us were tucking into big bowls of seafood pasta, and it smelled really good. So we had some. The dining room was full so we ate...in the lounge, which was probably better. The seafood Linguini was really good, although I should have worn a bib, I enjoy my food but can make a mess. We had a couple of glasses of the house shiraz, which is on tap. And it is quite drinkable. I have been a member here for years and seen the quality of the kitchen improve markedly, they have recently moved areas around and got a lot of new furniture, so its a really friendly and comfortable atmosphere. A good meal and pleasant surroundingsMore

Great place for a well priced meal. We are seniors and got a meal for $13 each. It’s not the most outstanding meal, but good. The roast of the day was lamb and it was good.

We are members and have been for some time and had some lovely meals here but we went last night, a Saturday, and had the worst meal I've ever had anywhere. It was a special of spaghetti meatballs, not something I'd normally order but nonetheless......The pasta was cold, completely tasteless and dry with no sauce at all, clumped sadly in the middle of the plate. This was flanked by meatballs that were so tasteless they resembled wood chips. It was just revolting all round. I advised the waiter who was quick to offer something else after consulting the chef but it was really enough to frighten you off going again. Such a shame as we've had much better here but this was inedible and scary bad.More

My wife's Parma Chips & salad could have been hotter. The gravy that was ordered and then asked for never arrived ! The bread roll basket was empty and we had to ask for them, luck we got some because our meals took a long...time to arrive. My Paella was on the small side and was overcooked and dry, about 25 % of the rice was burnt onto the steel pan. The prawns were of a good size but again overcooked. They do have Carlton Draft Black on tap, this is a good thing ! I don't know if I would rush back there ? My wife mentioned on the way home that she went to the toilet and on they way she passed an area that had 3 freezers in it and she observed a large amount of mold around the seals, she commented if she had seen that first she would not have eaten there ! A bit disappointing as I am a member of the RSL and try to support them wherever I go. A good meal deal on a Tuesday night but I had to ask about it.More
