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.

Went with a group for dinner and due to the size of the group our meals were preordered. The Booking was for 6.30pm on arrival I requested to see the wine list and the lady behind the bar snapped quite abruptly I am the wine...list what do you want. We asked what wines you have to which she quickly told us the 3 whites and the 2 red wines they had. I had to ask her to repeat the brand names of the white wines as I did not hear them and the look and roll of the eyes was enough for me to say don't worry and get a premixed drink instead. We had all arrived by 6.45pm and they brought out the starters that had been ordered for the two tables (Bruschetta's). The main meals started to be delivered from about quarter past seven, with only one or two meals being delivered at a time and a long wait to the next ones came out. When the first two meals came out one of the people that and ordered it was not at the table and the lady delivering the meals became angry and kept yelling who ordered the Lamb Shank, as she as leaving the room the person whose meal it was returned from the bar. The meals continued to come out slowly over the course of the night. We left at 8.30 and still people within the group and others that had ordered their own meals were still waiting. I also observed the lady carry a dog out of the kitchen area (which we assumed was hers) and bring it over to the other table for the guests to meet, then taking it back out and continue on delivering meals.More

We had a terrific meal here in the dog friendly beer garden. The staff were really obliging to ensure the 2 dogs had a bucket of water. Meals were all good and I highly recommend the Lamb Mediterranean Salad

Staff were pleasant even if a bit disorganised. The roast was nice and well priced and the chicken schnitzel was enjoyable. We were quite content with our evening

I chose the Chicken Schnitzel and it was a very substantial meal which I enjoyed. My husband went for a pizza which was delicious. I did think the prices a little high though. $45-$47 for a steak was a bit much. Those prices are not...inline with the caliber of the hotel.More

Caught up with friends here and had the joy of beautiful food that you want to go back for. I had a rib eye steak and it was cooked perfectly! The mushroom sauce was amazing and I would happily have eaten just that! Great desserts...and left feeling decidedly full and blissful!More

First weekend for JP’s Tavern and Bar. Friendly team and lovely food. Local Chef MIM in the kitchen does a fantastic generous sized breakfast. Try her home made Hash Browns. You won’t be disappointed.

The owner is very friendly and provides great customer service, but the pizzas are average at best, despite being outrageously priced far greater than anywhere in central Melbourne. To top it off, they give you these bizarre small serving plates (pictured) the size of one...piece of pizza!More

Went for a friends function and enjoyed the food and open fires on a cold night. Friendly staff in a typical country pub with pub standards on the menu and very good wood fired pizza. Great that they support regional wineries with a good selection...of local reds. Family friendly beyond the front bar.More

Went here with friends from Rochester for a casual dinner of pizza (wood fired) and red wine - plenty of red wine! All wine locally sourced from Heathcote and Lake Cooper. Mick and Tanya run the pub with great country hospitality. Also has bnb accommodation...but we didn’t stay. Interesting place and worth a visit!More

Having just driven down from Sydney went looking for a place for a drink before dinner. Owner was pleasant, chatty and helpful. Dinner menu was good and food did not disappoint. Wine recommendation was spot on and made us wonder why we had note thought...to spend more time as the heathcote wine ditrict is just up the road. Allowed us to taste some wines. Would go back if in the area.More
