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.

I was staying at the Burra Motor Inn so ordered a takeaway cheeseburger from Jumbucks restaurant. It was kindly delivered to my room. The burger was excellent as were the accompanying freshly cooked chips and salad.

Thank you for your stay, and for dining in Jumbucks. It was an interesting experience, no doubt, given that there was no power and you got the rare privilege of dine by (only) candlelight whilst we cooked and prepared your meal under torchlight.

Poor selection of food. Sold put of fish!(we second group there). Wines by the glass- only 2 whites. One cocktail(espresso martini) which my wife ordered & created big fuss of how to do it, was just ok. Service was v friendly and efficient, but the...one person run off his feet.

We recently dined at the re opened Jumbucks restaurant.. The ambiance was beautiful with great old fashioned service .. The meals were great , the steaks on the large size which meant we had to forfeit desert sadly . Jonas our waiter was very friendly...and made our visit memorable .. Would highly recommend it.More

I booked a nights accomodation at the Burra Motor Inn, the motor inn is a typical country motor inn, you don't expect too much but the bed was comfy and the showers hot and high pressure. I was wondering what I was going to do...for an evening meal as I don't really like pub grub. So I thought I would have a sneak into the restaurant - Jumbucks and was pleasantly surprised that the place was very clean and bright with lots of collectibles as displays.....very interesting. I ordered my meal which was very nice...in fact the previous week I was in Melbourne at a $450 a night hotel and this meal equaled the meals I had in Melbourne. When I am in Burra again I will know where to eat.More

They were well understaffed and didn’t manage to cope with a large (8people) group that must have arrived just before us. This meant that we had to wait over 90minutes for a meal (very tough after a long day driving and with a young child)...Very simple meal that was ok.More

If you are interested in the history of mining and Railways in SA, Jumbucks Restaurant in Burra is a delight. There is an incredible amount of history on display and once you have ordered your meal you can wander around the restaurant and take in...all of the displays. The menu offered a wide range of options with Kangaroo being a treat. The host was gracious and his barista made coffee was an unexpected treat. Well worth a visit, even if you are not staying at the Burra Motor Inn.More
