Although to a little bit of a drive off the main highway, we highly recommend it, we enjoyed a pub lunch on a lovely old verandah. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was really nice

A very Ordinary Pub, service is awful, after driving all the way from Macksville we were very disappointed, not made to feel welcome at all as a matter of fact, the opposite.

We had a fabulous night at the “Pub with No Beer”! Rob and his partner made us feel so welcome. Dinner was great pub grub and the beer was good too. We would definitely recommend this pub.

Perfect location to take in the Slim Dusty atmosphere. Bistro is basic but well prices and good meals. Well worth the trip

So much history in the pub, lots to look at & take in. Home made pies were delicious, for a pub with no beer they had plenty. Plenty of open grassed areas for the kids & dog to run around. A bit of a drive...but well worth it, come in from the Macksville end otherwise you'll get dirt roads all the wayMore

Stayed at the pub and it was one of the best nights of our road trip. The pub has some great old history on the walls to look at and has a great atmosphere. The food is excellent great place to visit. Toni and Rob...went out of their way to make our stay very many memorable we will definitely be back.More

What a disappointment: bar staff were very rude, we waited over an hour for our food (a hamburger) . There were no Covid 19 measures in place and no signing in. Have reported to. NSW Health.

We have been visiting this pub for the past 10 years and it has long rated as one of our favourites. Its main draw card for us is its beautiful location making it a very enjoyable drive through rolling countryside; and Murrays beers. The food...has always been poor to average but the beer and location more than compensated. But now alas the pub has been sold and is no longer owned by Murray breweries and so the special craft beers are no longer sold. Instead it is just the usual mix of corporate brews, and not even a cider or anything a little bit special for us "hipster" types (apparently that is what we are if we don't have a liking for mass produced beverages). This was so disappointing I elected to not have a beer at all and you couldn't even get yourself a glass of water instead. A further disappointment was that the usual table we sat at outside had been removed and all the outdoor seating near the pub was taken or reserved. We were therefore forced to sit out on the front lawn near where the band was playing. It is a pleasant enough place but on a hot sunny day there is no shade provided and it would be a nice touch to provide some umbrellas or shade. For food we ordered crumbed whiting, which was so deep fried and dripping in oil you would have thought it was battered and the serving of chips was frugal. The fish pieces were very symmetrical so it would appear they came straight out of a frozen packet. We also had korean chicken wings, which were actually very tasty but again the serving of chips was small and both meals were served in cardboard boxes. We noted that some customer meals were served on plates with side salads so this seemed to be a bit weird and for the price paid a small amount of garnish and a real plate would not have gone astray. All in all the pub is a far cry from the original quaint place we knew when we first started visiting and whilst we recognise the need to cater to mainstream tastes even a small offering of something alternative would be welcome. Regrettably this will be our last visit to the pub until that changes.More
