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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Young inexperienced female staff wearing disgusting high cut shorts which pretty much showed their privates. Shocking attitude from start to end, no smile, no one waiting to greet us, no warmth and lacked any nice atmosphere , had to go find my own cutlery, had...a girl tell me she was too busy I should go find my own cutlery where I ordered which was 6 people deep and my food was already going cold. Felt like the staff were doing us a favour by being there. Rude lack of service and food was so over rated for the price. Overall a bitterly disappointing waste of time and moneyMore

We go regularly and always have same meal, rare steak and a medium rare steak with pepper sauce. Used to think they were best steaks on coast but our meal last week was a disaster! We were happy to pay increased price $30 each as...we understand food costs are rising, but both steaks were well over cooked, we were hungry so we ate them, we’ve decided next time we will order something else because we were so disappointed. Left a review a week ago but no comment from management. We’ve friends who are in hospitality and they follow up bad comments within a day. Sad when this happens to a place where we always enjoyed our mealsMore

They advertise two levels but dare go upstairs 20 minutes before dinner time. You will be forced to leave and have no other choice but to go downstairs into the snooker room or perhaps the tab room or the gaming room. Family friendly haha. Stick...your family into the TAB and get then hooked early. Embarrassing place to be. The place is empty and now you know why. Don't bother going there it's not what it used to be. ps: they want you to book to have a meal and wait around to be seated. It's No longer a pub / Hotel and they should forfeit their licence to someone that actually cares about their customers / the public.More

Well laid out and prompt, efficient service. The setting was clean, and the facility easily catered for wheelchair access. Meal servings were quite large and chicken schnitzel was delicious, as was the beetroot and walnut salad with chicken. Recommended.

Probably the best chicken parmigiano in the world. Tender, crunchy, saucy, melty, hot and tasty. It helps that the chips and salad were fine too, all washed down with a chilled beer.

We love the Palmwoods pub, tonight not so much. Firstly my wine came out wrong asked for a large, got a small thats ok we paid the difference. ( even though their stuff up) Next.. asked for Kilpatrick oysters, but natural oysters came out...they fixed...it... Our mains 2 x $38 rib fillet cooked medium with chips and salad. Salad was old, limp with no dressing, chips were disappointing, the rib fillet was not medium, luckily the gravy was nice. Thank you to the lovely witnesse who asked about our meals when we were finished, sorry but it wasn't all good .More
