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.

Good, friendly service. Order at the bar. Spacious and comfortable. Meals good prices, unfortunately chicken wings were undercooked and bloody in the middle but Grand daughter had eaten some before she found this. She vomited during the night but recovered a day later. Management most...apologetic though.More

Family friendly pub, lot of space, tv, bar, salad for extra $5 with any main, there is an amazing indoor playground, the food we had wasn't good, my soup of the day wasn't edible and the roast of the day wasn't good either. It's a...shame the food isn't great as the location and the pub in general is beautifulMore

A spacious dining facility with a very good local menu. The kitchen was very efficient with meals coming quite quickly.

I had the banger and mash -- but not before I was assured the mash is from potatoes proper, not from dehydrated dust. It was and the meal was great. Service is friendly and engaging. Food was such that I returned the next night and...had creamy garlic prawns with rice. It was also very good.More

The food was average quality pub food but came out quickly. One staff member became angry when asked if a meal could be replaced. A replacement or substitute was not provided. I would not eat here again. Fortunately when I had a drink in the...front bar afterwards the staff in that area were very pleasant.More

Staff were great but food is average. Have been several times and keep forgetting that the included salad on main meals consists of half a dozen mixed bits of lettuce.

I do not recommend for poor standards. On 3rd Dec 2021 I ordered a rump steak and found the quality of the meat was very poor (very hard) and I asked for a new one. The second one arrived soon after and found under the...sloppy mushroom sauce (which I didn't ask for as I hate mushroom) was about 1/3 of fat and the rest being hard meat, again. I don't know if it was some sick joke by the cooks to defraud me of my hard-earned money but this type of quality control is beyond lissencephaly. My fork kept bending as the steak knife struggled to cut into it and gave up eating. I wasn't the only one to experience this, a young girl on our table also had poor quality meat but she decided to not make a fuss and got a doggy box it and give the meat to her dog. The CEO and GM of hospitality need to clean up their act and fix the problem of poor delivery standards.More

Arrived at 5.10 and restaurant opens at 5.30. Very nice staff opened the indoor park up fir our kids and on a busy night found a table that suited our time frame well (as table was booked at 7). Kids meals all were good, Vietnamese...salad massive, sharing entree plate really good . Our daughter also vomited due to too much excitement and staff attentive to helping us out . Easy car parking and large array of options on the menu made for a nice night, with the exception of an unexpected vomit !! Well worth popping inMore

Went there for tea/dinner and was blown away by the quality of the food, taste, presentation, friendly staff and clean facilities. We had the pork bites for entre which could've passed for a main meal. The crackling was perfect and the meat was super tender...that the fork passed through the meat. Also had the R&B (Ribs & Brisket) the rib meat fell off the bone, the brisket was super tender and a traditional small beef schnitzel with the heart attack topping (cheese, sour cream and sweet chilli sauce). The schnitzel was the size you'd typically get in Adelaide for a lot more. Definitely recommend, will eat here again.More

First off let me say my wife and I got married in the South Eastern and loved it for many years. But it disappointed us on our grand sons 21st birthday. We had about 40 people there. My wife and I were the third in...our group to order. We never got our order till after all others had their meals and it took over 1/2 hour to get it. There was 18 people at our table and they put the bread rolls at one end all 15 in one basket at the far end. When we asked for rolls they said they already put them out, by that time they where gone except 3 rolls. When you have a table of 18 common sense would say maybe a few smaller baskets of rolls spread out along that 10 foot long table. So at least 5 people did not get any because they would not bring more. I ordered a Fillet steak ( 150g ) sandwich with Garlic prawns on it and the menu said it would be cooked medium. What part of medium is burnt past recognition - Please see picture. 4 out of 5 people I talked to said the food was terrible, everything from Prawns over cooked and rubbery to large chicken fried steak and all 8 chips on the plate. I complained to ( manager ) at least thats who turned up when I asked for one and her only remark was well we can comp you for your meal. It was not just my meal. I simply refused the offer and will contact them about this nightmare night for my grandsons 21st.More

We arrived at 530pm and ordered shortly thereafter. Food was served 15 minutes later. Main meal was good, well priced. The kids' meals were so-so but the kids enjoyed their icecream after dinner. The kids playground and games room was a hit too. Overall, nothing...fancy but a nice place to eat.More

Meals for 3 - Grilled Chicken was more burnt chicken that was extremely dry and hard to eat. Was charged full price for the meal although half of it being the sweet potatoes were missing - when questioned was told they were out of them...- no discount offered. I ordered that meal specifically for the sweet potatoes as I'm intolerant to normal potatoes. Husband ordered fish special and it honestly looked like it was from a frozen packet - cooked way to long in oil that he was able to peel off the outer oil covering and just eat the fish inside. Daughter had roast pork which was dry - covered in gravy to hide the fact. Even the crackle was that dry she couldn't eat it.More

Hi Adele, I'm not sure but from experience it is most likely that they would cater for coeliac people. You will definitely enjoy Mount Gambier, I'm positive of that. Enjoy your trip with hubby.
