Haven't been here for ages. Great meal and excellent service. Went for my husband's birthday after our usual local had stuffed up our booking. The meal wax excellent as was the service. This hotel used to be our local some years ago and it was lovely to be remembered by staff.Bernadette and Kim give great service.

We have been a few times as we like the one meal for $12 voucher during the week. Have found the salad and veg bar a bit hit and miss. Sometimes its fab and others a bit tired and boring...nice quiet place not rowdy or loud due to a carpeted floor. great bar service

Service ok, meals ok and prices ok. Schnitzel for under $25 , good pub meal. The salad bar was dissapointing, dry vegetables but the bread was fresh . Would go again but not in a rush.

Dropped in here for a quick lunch and very surprised with the range in the menu. Gave the Alpaca a try and, although a little over done, it was still very juicy. This place is really stuck in the 80s in a nice way and has not been polluted by hipsters. Very happy with the meals and the service. Worth... More

The meal was very disappointing for the price. My friends recommend the place, but we won't be back. Services where friendly, but something was very wrong in the kitchen. It seemed the sauces were so wrong

We eat at Magnums often and always get tasty food and good service. Last time I ordered the kangaroo from the specials board and it was cooked as kangaroo should be. The main menu has something for everyone. There is a salad/ veggie bar and meals are made cheaper by printing a voucher from the hotels website.

We had intended to eat at a number of places but our meal and the service was so good the first night we ate there, we booked in again for the following night. We found the staff extremely friendly and efficient and... More
