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.

Came for trivia night, had some food beforehand as you do. Have eaten here 3 or 4 times before and was disappointed every time. This time we had a voucher though from winning a previous trivia night, so decided to get a pizza and some...hot chips. The pizza was absolutely covered in red onions, the mushrooms were raw and the artichoke oily and gross. Pretty much just picked off the capsicum and olives and didn’t touch the rest. My 3y/o was having a little dance on the stage next to the table we were sitting at. The previous time we had done trivia there, that wasn’t a problem and the funny host included him a lot during the game. All of a sudden I was told my son was only allowed in the area if he sat in a high chair. Obviously, that was not an option, he is 3. We didn’t even get to finish our chips and my drink as we were told to leave unless he is sitting next to me. Found out that some sour old farts had complained about wanting to have their beer in a more quiet environment, and weren’t happy with my son having some fun dancing on the stage. The first person who came to speak to me about it blatantly lied about it being “for his own safety reasons”, the manager later made me understand that it was in fact to keep the regulars happy. So in conclusion, apart from the horrible food, also not very family/kid friendly. The only positive I van think of is that the servers were friendly and the trivia host does a great job. I ended up giving away the remaining voucher as I will never be back there.More

Very disappointing service and food. We ordered three $40 steaks to be cooked medium rare, sadly they arrived cooked well done. We brought this matter to the attention of the kitchen and were told they would redo the meal. Sadly, the second lot of steaks...also arrived well done, and the manager delivered them telling us “this is what we call rare”. As we were leaving, we advised the manager, however he was very rude and didn’t want to hear any comments. Happy to have a pub meal anywhere but paying $120 for three over-cooked steaks is not good enough. Having said all this, a very good beachside pub vibe!More

Happy with our meal in general, there were some highs and some lows. Really liked the squid with chilli, and the cheesy garlic bread. The parmigiana wasn’t the best, I got the special, maybe it was different from the full one on the menu.More

My wife is gluten and alcohol intolerant and there were meal options available. Staff were very informative and helpful when ordering. Both our meals were very nice. Squid and chicken schnitzel. Lovely outside deck area. Would have scored it a 5 except for the fact...that they don’t have non alcoholic wine which is readily available on the Central Coast. Bar staff were going to mention it to bar manager. Will go there again.More

The Seaview Tavern had been recommended by friends so we decided to go for lunch. The staff were welcoming and very efficient and the menu looked really nice with lots of options. My husband and I decided to share the Bean Nachos with Pulled Pork...which was for two but still rather large. It had plenty of pork, beans, avocado, sour cream and cheese. Very tasty! Our friends shared a half dozen natural and half dozen Kilpatrick Oysters which they enjoyed. One then had prawn cutlets and chips while the other had the local dukkah dusted Parrot fish with roast root vegetables. It looked fabulous and he really liked it. The beers were cold and the atmosphere very pleasant.More

Located as you are coming into Woopi (Woolgoolga) on the right. There on a week night very busy, great atmosphere, noticeably clean with staff buzzing around, clearing. Lamb cutlets and chicken schnitzel were ordered, meals served hot. Would definitely recommend to call in and try...something from the specials board, or from normal menu. Great place for a meal.More
