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.

We stayed in Bega two nights, we loved the meal and service so much the first night, that we went back the second night. The staff were lovely and the food was out fast, freshly made and tasted great.

Service is impeccable. Steak is cooked to perfection, melts in your mouth, could cut it with a butter knife. Try the Sweet potato chips Calamari you don't even have to chew so tender. And don't forget to get extra salad you won't be disappointed. Pull...up at the Commercial For a quick meal or take your time and enjoy a couple of drinks.More

Absolutely horrible service - there was a staff member called Beau and he was so rude and unfriendly to me. There are at least 50 people in my apartment building and I have told them never to go to this place again and if they...do, do not speak to Beau as he is the rudest staff member there.More

The food here is your typical Australian Pub food. Tasty and generous serves. The price is reasonable for what you get. It can get very noisy so be prepared to lip read, but the atmosphere is good. Just don’t take notice of the accommodation. If...you’re 20-25 and male and single and don’t mind a 0 star hotel then you might stay here but otherwise give it a miss. Just eat at the bistro.More

The food was great but it is the people who elevate an ok experience to a good one. The pub is well presented with a large outdoor beer garden and cosy dining room. I had the lamb cutlets which were perfectly crumbed and cooked, my...husband was very happy with his generous serving of bangers and mash. The staff were very friendly and offered advice on the local area.More

Recently moved to the area. Our fist visit to the Hotel, a very pleasant surprise. Lunch was Chinese or Australian. lunchtime specials. We had Chinese and Fish & Chips. Both meals were large, well cooked and very enjoyable. Tables not too close together. The room...looked to have been newly decorated as it was so clean and fresh looking. Service was friendly. It made a nice change from going to a cafe in the Mall where it is quite noisy. We will certainly be going again on our shopping day.More

A must stop in Bega. Meal great value. Kitchen manager Lisa is a reason enough to "drop in". Beer price no worries. Thoroughly enjoyed my short visit here. Kevin T.
