Reviewed this venue a few years ago and really didn't think I was going to return but thought we'd try it again. It has improved but again a major issue with how they operate things here. Bookings can only be made by phone so we...made a booking for a Saturday night. Upon arriving we were met at the reception area by a staff member, where we were told that those over 18 years of age had to produce a drivers licence. They took each drivers licence and scanned them one by one. One of our group who has a medical condition is not allowed to hold a drivers licence, hence they obviously weren't able to produce one. They did have a current Victorian proof of age card but the staff member said that was insufficient, so they scanned one of our members of group twice to allow that person through - obviously not to venue policy if you scan someone twice. Things to note: Firstly, this bit of information about producing form of age identification is not told when booking over the phone. I have seen on other reviews that mentions this exact issue but ridiculously the reply from management was "we can't explain everything over the phone". I sorry but this is not acceptable. If you make it a requirement of entry that is different from many many other venues, then it MUST be mentioned. It also should be made clear on their website - which it is not. There is a section on their website under the 'Club' menu titled 'Conditions of Entry' however there is NO mention of having to produce a form of age identification upon entry. Secondly, these days not everyone walks around with a drivers licence on them. Thirdly, a current Victorian proof of age card IS an acceptable form of identification upon entering a licensed venue. And upon hunting deeply on their website I did find a section hidden down layers of pages that did say that "a current Victorian proof of age card was an acceptable form of identification of age." So, the staff must be trained better in the policy of the club. Finally, when asked to hand over to them our drivers licence, we were not told that they were going to scan them. We all were not happy about this as we don't know how secure their computer systems are, and now that they have scanned our drivers licences in, we are now potentially at risk of identity theft if their systems are hacked. The printout that they gave us back says that "we agreed to their conditions of entry" HOWEVER we did no such thing, as the conditions of entry weren't even explained to us prior to handing over our licences to the staff member. All we were told was "hand over your drivers licence." We didn't know what for, what they were going to do with them and whether we accepted the clubs conditions of entry. Overall a, absolutely pathetic system and we all felt horrified by how we were treated upon entry. You, as a venue, have to explain to customers CLEARLY what is required if it outside the normal process of going to a venue. PLUS, you must have staff fully trained and aware of all forms of identification. For a country town venue, we were appalled and it did not start the evening well. The meals were very nice though, reasonably priced and the staff were friendly enough. I mentioned in my review a few years ago that a waiter by the name of Troy was extremely professional and helped us out when things went wrong (again). And amazingly Troy served us again at our table and he did an exemplary job yet again. Well done to him and hopefully he is due-fully rewarded for his efforts. One last negative - there was a raffle going on whilst we were seated for dinner and the noise level is ridiculously loud in which it was difficult to hold a conversation. They need to limit the areas of where the PA can be heard or at least have the volume down so those who are not interested in the raffle can hold a conversation without the need of virtually shouting. Overall, this venue needs to fix things up - still.More

We booked for dinner and found they hadn’t reserved a table for us and placed us near the kitchen. The couple before us who hadn’t booked got the last table far from the kitchen. When we asked about the specials we were told in a...mumble to check the tv screens. We were very disappointed and left.More

Dined here for dinner on a Sunday evening. We ordered cheesy garlic bread and 3 seafood platters. Platters hit the spot nicely with a good serving of salad and chips accompanying them. Served by the waiter with the greatest attention to detail I have ever...seen, Troy, he let nothing to chance. Read back my order with the accuracy of a pilot talking through the checklist before landing a plane. All good.More

Fantastic service and very welcoming even on a busy Saturday night and us with no reservation. The food is mouthwatering and the meals are very generously sized! So much so that we sadly werent able to finish it all, but were provided with a takeout...container for the remainder. Shoutout to Troy our server, he was very attentive, helpful and friendly. Thankyou!More
