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.

Sadly I’m a local and there aren’t many options but the food here is very average, certainly can’t cook anything BUT medium well done steak and most staff are very rude.

I’m sure the chef is drunk. I don’t think the “chef” is anything more than a glorified home cook. What place has an option to buy the chef or bar staff a drink! I think this business needs to take a serious look at its...self and what it is promoting. Be interested to see what work safe would have to say about this and liquor and gaming.More

Terrible service at the bar. Staff more interested in serving locals and having a chat. Getting order taken for food was just as bad. Lengthy wait times. View can’t back up for poor staff.

We went to Sandy Cove, where we had been on numerous occasions, with friends for lunch on a Sunday. We all ordered from the seniors menu, which we had also done on numerous occasions. Three of us ordered the steak with my husband ordering the...chicken snitzel. When the meals came out, steaks were all good and the normal size, when my husbands meal arrived, on his plate was what had been a small snitzel to start with then cut in half! It Looked to be about 7cm wide by 10cm long! It had actually been cut in half after it had been cooked. My husband mentioned it to the girl who came to clear the table but she just seemed to think that it was because it was a seniors meal. We have not encountered that before anywhere - very disappointing.More

Great food. But the staff were just non plus. 😕 no welcome. Got asked..." you right" and not one more word from the bar staff dispite my several attempts to engage her. No smile. No warmth. Got an eye roll when we asked for a...takeaway container. Having actually worked there years ago it was a very different experience now.More

We were holidaying close by, so decided to pop in for a late lunch on a Wednesday to trial the food for a family meal planned for Friday. We loved everything about the place, so we came back Thursday and Friday and Saturday. Every meal...was excellent in every way. Steak night saw 7 of us ALL receive perfect steaks to our liking. The Schnitzel Roll is to die for. Big serves. Excellent chips. Nice salad. The view outside is so relaxing and there is play equipment for the kids. Every staff was helpful and friendly. We all needed to get home to lose some weight. Don't bother going anywhere else for meals. This Tavern has some of the best meals we have EVER eaten, AND EVERY WEEK NIGHT THERE IS A SPECIAL. 10 STARSMore

We have been visiting this Tavern for over a year. To start with the meals were excellent in quality and quantity. Service and friendliness of bar staff was excellent. The food was great as well. In the last six or so months we have noticed...a decline in portion sizes and what the chef must call a salad. The fish size has decreased by at least 1/3, the chips have decreased by 2/3 (my over 5yrs old grandchildren would complain at the portion of chips served). The "SALAD" is another thing, plenty of what I classified a weed from the yard, I have seen no lettuce, a slight slice of red onion, if you get tomatoes, you are lucky plenty of grated carrot has suddenly appeared as salad, and a variety of spicy bell peppers ++. small amount of vinegarette. What happened to Australian Beetroot with a salad.More

Our family group travelled by Houseboat to this location & were able to moor for the night at the jetty. Our table had been reserved & was waiting for us. The decor is beachy, tavern style but a beautiful view of the water was available...from our table. The meals were basic pub style but tasty. Staff were extremely busy but very efficient.More

This is a little hidden gem! We came here for dinner as we were recommended it by others and couldn’t believe we have never know it was there!! It’s right in the river so perfect for those nice summer nights to sit out on the...balcony section and have a drink/dinner. It’s split into two sections - sports bar and restaurant. Which is good as something for everyone The food was delicious, plenty to offer, serving were plenty big enough and prices were same as everywhere else. The staff were great and nothing was too much. Will definitely come back!More
