We dined here for a friend's birthday with a group of 12. This was the first time since the renovations. Not sure why we bothered would not return again for the food it was disgusting. The atmosphere although carpeted was still like a noisy cafe hard to talk to people. Very disappointing.

We have eaten there 3 times this year. It's pub food and it's not a bad price. I suppose you get what you pay for. I think the food could be improved upon to make this a great place to eat. What we liked is it's close to our home to meet friends and sit outside. Bit noisy being on... More

Decided to come here with my wife and little one after the recent upgrades. Ordered our food, waited 20 mins for the my sons dish 30 minutes for my dish and 35 minutes for my wife's dish. Chips were cold, burger buns were stale and drinks were forgotten. Will not be coming here again. Could see straight into the kitchen,... More

Popped into recently renovated Tower Hotel for a quick lunch. The service was great, food arrived promptly and it was fresh and tasty. We ordered the Thai noodle salad and the spicy squid, both were nice and at under $17 each were good value.

Went last night for dinner with husband and child. Thought we'd try it as it's recently been done up. Pub style, limited menu which is fine....u get what you pay for. I got a cheeseburger, husband got fish and chips and daughter got a kids burger. I hate leaving bad reviews but we eat out at least once or twice... More

The place has been modernized and caters for all ages. Service was a bit slow and we ordered a burger each, they came out just warm not hot and the chips as well. The burger was very tasty and the home cut chips were nice too but it was a shame the food was not hot. We did mention it... More

Great place to come if your not hungry! Nice new renovated area is great for a drink, but the food is disgusting. I ordered a simple chicken schnitzel with Dianne sauce. Chicken was so cremated that I could hardly cut through the crumb crust. Chips were oily and disgusting. The Dianne sauce wasn't Dianne sauce. It was some weird garlic... More

We have been going to the Tower Bistro for a number of years and always enjoyed good pub food and friendly service. We were keen to see what it looked like after the recent renovations, so went tonight. The entrance has been altered and we were greeted by a young woman who asked if we had a reservation. As we...

The Tower Hotel Magill has undergone a renovation and we thought we might go and try it out with some family and friends. Whilst the renovations themselves look quite nice and the staff were friendly and eager to help, it let itself down with the food. A very basic menu and the food was not unfortunately up to expectations, simple... More

Lovely and friendly staff welcomed us for lunch on a Friday. The restaurant was full so we sat in the bar which was fine. My son order the chicken burger, he said it was ok but it is not as big as the other burgers they offer. Average fries but plastic tasting onion rings. I ordered a healthy salad and... More
