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.

This restaurant came highly recommended. Well what a disappointment it was. Ordered a steak that was just under $50, asked friends it do be cooked medium well. Came out looking great - less than 1/4 was cooked as asked but the remainder was seriously so...under cooked how it didn’t get up and run back home i don’t know!!! Staff solution take your money for the steak that was mainly uneaten and give you a voucher for $15 for next time. Well that will not be happening. Also My partners steak was so tough he could only eat about 3/4 of it. Very disappointing visit!!!More

We ordered the pork special and eye fillet for mains and the apple pie and parfait for dessert. The portions were perfectly sized and the taste was incredible. While prices are relatively expensive the quality of the food and prompt service made it feel like...great value.More

My partner and I were recommended the restaurant by a local cab driver. The restaurant is hidden away and looks like a standard pub on entering. The steak restaurant at the back had great staff and food. The decor was nice, especially with the courtyard...at the very back.More

Had dinner with my husband and two adult kids on Friday night. Absolutely loved it. Great friendly service, a super menu and excellent drink offerings. We all loved our meals. Its highly recommended and, we thought, really good value. We did stay at the hotel...a number of years ago and can recommend that too. Excellent place, very well run.More

From the 1st phone call to make the reservation the customer service was excellent. I rang a further 2 times to make some changes and nothing was too much trouble. We had a group booking and were seated in their beautiful enclosed courtyard, it was...perfect for our family birthday celebration. The birthday girl received a free glass of prosecco on arrival, which was a lovely touch. Everyone loved their meals, the wait staff were friendly and efficient, we couldn't have chosen a better restaurant.More

Pub itself not in a bad location and the layout inside is good. Went here to try their proclaimed 'best steaks' and went with the 400g Wagyu special. Steak itself was seasoned well, tasted amazing and was juicy. The only thing that i was disappointed...with was portion size, it seemed tiny for a 400g chunk for the price we paid. I was still left a bit hungry but I'm willing to give another steak dish a go in the future!More

We were there last night as part of the Famous Tram progressive dinner and were really disapppointed with the quality of our meals. The steak was tough (my husband and others agreed), the duck breast was also not tender and a very small serve. If...you're going to charge 5 star prices, please serve 5 star food. Thanks. P.S. we loved the Famous Tram!More

Ordered the Tuesday night special, simple crumbed lamb chops served with chips and salad. The lamb tasted unpleasant with a very sour aftertaste, needless to say left it as I did not trust the meat. The salad was of a kind a child can toss...together. I answered the waitress honestly when asked if all was ok and she offered to take the plate and replace it with another meal but my appetite had gone ....waste of $20!More

we had heard about the great steaks at this hotel from many of our friends so thought we would give it a try.. Steaks were great but it was hard to have a conversation as the place was packed and very very noisy.. Yes .....you can expect some distracting noise from fellow diners but this was at a level which did not make for a pleasant dining experience..More

Th restaurant in the hotel used to be great. I was disappointed in visiting this restaurant for the first time since it was sold. There steak used to be the best. The place to go for the best steak in Newcastle. Last night I paid...$52.00 for a steak and it did not meet expectation it was tough like eating a leather boot. Now I understand the if I had brought a $12.00 steak it might not be tender but when you are paying an inflated price then you need to deliver and you did not. On the other hand we paid $40.00 for my partners steak and his was the opposite to mine. I won't be in a rush to go back especially with the inconsistency of the quality of their steaks.More
