We ate dinner here based on a recommendation from the motel front desk clerk. We first sat at a outside table for a awhile but moved indoors when no one came and then I went to the bar to order a beer. Bartender said no...table service and to come inside. Indoors at the restaurant, there was a long line at the cashier podium/stand. Asked a person in line and was told that the procedure was to place your order with the cashier, find an open table, and then some one brings your food order. We patiently waited in line till we got to the cashier but were asked if another person could order since they were part of a group-we said okay. After this person, 2 more people came up and said they were part of the group so we let them order. One of them took almost 5 minutes to order. So we finally got our orders in and went to a table. We saw some of the large group who ordered in front of us/let some order. They were a group of at least 20 and we noticed none had any food yet so we knew tour wait for food would belong. After about 20-25 more minutes, only half the large group got food and we started pondering whether to leave or not. Decided to stay since it was getting late and we did not think other places would be still open. Food finally came about 15-20 minutes later. We had 2 orders of pot roast and a small pizza. Post roast & veggies were pre-made and the pizza could not have taken more than 15 minutes to make/bake. Could only conclude that kitchen was understaffed/incompetent/ or slow. Food was just okay. We ended up being there over 2 hours - not too bad for a fine dining place, but this was definitely not fine dining.More

We were there for lunch on a holiday Monday. We received a warm welcome, we’re handed menus, shown the specials board and told to order at the bar after selecting out table. This is a standard Australian pub system and they did it well. Our...food was good pub Tucker. The beer was cold and the service polite and helpful. We enjoyed our visit.More

The staff had a very off-hand attitude to customers. One server was wearing a grubby torn jacket. We hadn’t been to this restaurant before but as we entered, instead of greeting us, we were told ‘menus at the bar, order and pay there’. This is...not normal service. We would have expected to be seated, handed menus and have specialty dishes explained to us. Our starters were definitely good, but main courses were disappointing. And we were told to keep the cutlery that we had used for starters and reuse for our main course! My chicken schnitzel was tender, but was covered with a glutinous substance which bore no resemblance to a Diane sauce. My husband’s lamb chops were covered with the same substance! Overall, a very disappointing meal and poor customer service.More

The menu here is extensive and the food excellent. The setting is a lovely old dining room where the wall is lined with a display of local bottles of wine that you can walk along and peruse before making your choice. An extensive wine list...at reasonable prices and food as good as you would get anywhereMore

Wide selection of food and a long list of specials. Great sizzling beef. Better than some Asian restaurants. Well priced too and not noisy. Celiac and vegetarian options available.

We went out to the reliable Bushmans Arms for a meal tonight and it was very nice. From the Garlic Pizza and Aranchini balls to the Chicken Osacar or Chicken Schnitzel, all was pretty spot on. Thanks for your service
