The outdoor dining deck overlooks a fabulous sports field/park and is ideal for travellers with children or dogs. I wasn't feeling well, so cannot really speak of the food but my husband enjoyed his meal. They serve a good boutique beer.
I really like to support local businesses however the wait for food is just rediculous!!
The food is a bit hit and miss at times but in general is good for a pub feed.
We would probably eat here more often if we didn't have...to wait so long for dinner. The place wasn't even that packed out either so I dont understand why it takes so long?More
This place is a gem...We had lunch with family on the fenacle weekend
The food was awesome and the staff are great..Would have missed it if it
wasnt for our local guide(daughter).. Don't drive by you will be sorry..
Great place to watch NZ win the rugby. Also ate here a couple of time. Good staff, good pub food. One night was busy and order got missed, but was quickly noticed by the staff, appology given and meal came out quickly after that. Then...this was followed by a complmentry drink. Good service and PR guys.More
Stopped in for lunch on a sightseeing drive. The waitress was gorgeous (the loud-ish music made it a bit difficult to hear but we have old ears :).. we ordered the tapas for 2 and it was outstanding. Loved it. The cloth chairs looked a...bit grubby but understandable for cloth in a restaurant, but there were plenty of non cloth options and the rest of the furniture was very clean :) Id gladly come back next visit.More
I like to think we went in with an open mind as we love the Blanche bar (sister restaurant ) but the food here is no better than a roadhouse takeaway , and at least with generic roadhouse food there is consistency..
Dry smelly fish...finger looking pieces in some ok cooked chip .
The kids pizza of ham and cheese was mistakenly cooked as an adult but was vial .
Smoked round packaged ham that was overly sweet and burnt in the edges ...
$20 Arancini Balls resembles rice drenched in maggi chicken stock powder with some very very dry and chewy sun dried tomatoes chucked in
The best part of the meal was the beer .
It must have been a shift change over as the man that appears to be the cook was lounging in his kitchen apron on the service counter while 3 services ladies had a change over shift discussion ... that's a positive way of saying standing around chatting .
The service was friendly just a little wreck less with no side plates given with the "share" plates
I think the 4 of us where expected to eat directly of the main plates ..
Won't be back unfortunately but we tried to support a local business and both times have paid an expensive bill for bland , below average food .More
Was somewhat disappointed with the pizza I ordered, particularly the fact that it was $30, tiny, burnt and disgusting.
Being a small family oriented mining town, I think they are missing the mark of what people want, not a t.a.b, live d.j's and "average" high...end nosh. I myself prefered it when the town mining accommodation and catering provider was managing it simple and effective, not always great, but good burgers and pizza reasonably priced. It is the only restaurant here and are many people that are happy with it though, each to their own I guess. Have a crack and judge for yourself!!More
Great atmosphere, partner was pleased with TVs to watch his sports. Food was great, Sopressa pizza was yummy and crispy skin barramundi was cooked to perfection, so crispy and beautiful. Service was efficient and meals came out quick. Will definitely be back! Thanks!
We got the Arancini Balls - the flavour was .... Well boiled rice and carrot , that's all - no seasoning ... Great texture on the outside and beautiful presentation but only made edible by the addition of salt and a drink to wash them...down ....
The garlic bread was cooked on the top half and just cold bread underneath . Forgive me if this was the way it was intended , my person dislike if that's the case .
We will try again another time but won't recommend the balls to anyone as yet ..More
