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.

Great pub for a meal not too pricey and food was good, will certainly be back for more. Great staff as well and beer was cold.

Based on previous reviews, we must have struck the about F team in the kitchen. We went on a Friday evening and ordered 5 meals. All the meals took over an hour to be served: - one was fine - one quite pricy pizza was...undercooked (and very small) - two roast lambs were served with pumpkin pieces which were burnt and literally black. These were sent back and within 5 minutes replaced with good pumpkin - if there were good vegetables available, why were the burnt ones served? Once the vegetables were fixed up the lamb roasts were very good. They just took an hour and a quarter to be served. - a hamburger was also burnt black on the outside, and was dry throughout. The waiter offered to take it back but the person who ordered did not want to wait for however long it would take. Overall, a very disappointing night out, and we will not be back.More

Sometimes you end up somewhere different and this was one of those occasions. A friendly greeting upon entering the bar with a drink offering before been shown to the bistro which was cozy on a cold Saturday night. The menu has so many diverse options...it is tough to choose but it is a reason to go back! The food was great and all staff were polite and friendly. We will return to sample some of the other meals on the menu! 10/10 for a classic friendly hotel!More

I was part of a family gathering for an 18th birthday celebration lunch. There was a last minute change of venue and choose this hotel purely as a convenient meeting point for everyone. And, weren’t we glad we did … the staff were fantastic, engaging...and went above and beyond anything l have experienced before. The meals were delicious and they allowed us to stay until they needed the tables for dinner! The staff at this Hotel certainly made this a very enjoyable and memorable celebration.More

This pub has great food at reasonable prices with friendly staff. Unfortunately on a Sunday evening the beer garden was almost empty. As we had our dog we could only sit outside the front of the pub on the highway with bull ants everywhere under...our feet. Two people with their dog also sat outside with us. In the past we have been allowed in a corner of beer garden and I feel manager’s discretion would go along way when they are quiet.More

A friendly engaging pub, with warm staff that made you feel welcome. The food (dinner) was excellent and revitalised my view in eating out (had a few shocking meals lately). An absolute pleasere to visit here and will do my best to return.

Renovated country hotel, with friendly staff and the food was so good. Lamb was the best I have ever tasted - just melt in the mouth. Quite busy for a Wednesday night and I now know why!

An incredibly disappointing experience for lunch on Mother’s Day. Kitchen ran out of gas, which is hard to believe given the presumably known bookings. But accepting this setback, no one seemed to take responsibility for managing the situation. We were not informed of the reason...for the delay in serving our meals until we’d been waiting for over an hour and another group in our vicinity were not told for almost two hours. No compensatory nibbles or drinks were offered and the repeated excuse from staff was that the problem was outside their control. Not good enough.More

As a group of 4 we drove quite a way to have lunch based on feedback but it was disappointing. Sat inside in a front area (must have been booked tables as tables had tablecloths) but the 4 tables taken were all on top of...one another. The waitress was pleasant and efficient. But the meals were a complete let down. Pizza base doughy. Smallest serve of fish ever, 2 small pieces. Burger ok Parma ok Salad full of long strands of carrots with no way to put on fork so one had to eat with fingers. When we left we noticed very small room, windowless with diners, no tablecloths. This must be walkins. For a pub meal it was sadly lacking. We all said we should have sat in the bar where it was bright and had atmosphere. No we won’t return and do not recommend. There is plenty other choice nearby.More

This is a beautifully renovated hotel with a long history. Pressed metal ceiling, old fireplaces and yet thoroughly modern. Lovely outdoor area. Great service. Awesome meals. We stayed at the local caravan park and walked the 500 meters. Order anything lamb. Local and grown by...the owner.More

Food was great for everyone else, however my meat (lamb rump) was not edible. The young waitress was excellent & changed my meal for me to the lamb roast, this was so much better. Excellent service from the waitress, she went out of way to...sort things for me.More
