Always get a great meal at the Bistro. We've been there a couple of times now, each time we stay in Toowoomba.

Ventured in after friend recommended we have a look, We found the service really great ( thanks to the lovely Rosemary), Meal wasn't huge which was good and the steak was excellent quality and cooked perfectly. Which is a pleasant turnaround compared to more expensive eating establishments who have no clue how a steak is cooked. Anyway, home style atmosphere... More

I attended a Christmas breakup party here recently and couldn't believe that I hadn't found this place sooner. The meals are large and very reasonably priced and considering that it was at peak time on a Saturday night prior to the holiday period, the meals came out promptly to the table and were beautifully cooked. They have all the usual... More

With sedate expectations I was pleasantly surprised by the Newtown hotel. The food was better than what I expected on both visits and about the price I would expect. The atmosphere can be a little quiet at some times but at the right time it is just lively enough without being rowdy. There are a few distractions like gaming, sports... More

The Newtown has a great atmosphere, staff were friendly and polite. Service was speedy! If you want a place to take your family have a great meal and not ridiculously priced, this is the place!

Went here for lunch and ordered roast of the day which was beef. well what a mistake that was. The meat was that dry the gravy didn't even soften it up. Wouldn't recommend going here for a meal. Plenty of other places to go for a roast.

The chicken parmigiana I ordered was comfortably the worst I have had ever. The chicken was cooked too much so it was very dry and chewy. It also just seemed to be just a crappy bit of chicken regardless of how it was cooked. As well as that the chips served with the parmigiana were flavourless. I'm not sure about... More
