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.

Another delightful meal this evening. The new menu has the pub favourites but has added some delightful restaurant style choices to delight the taste buds, all at reasonable prices and nicely presented. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is pleasant for couples or groups.

The NorEast is a really good place to get a good quality meal at an affordable price, with friendly & attentive staff. The meals have a good variety, cater for younger fussy eaters as well, and range from excellent to average. Everyone has different tastes,...but you will always find a real gem in their menu. Their roasts are great, and they really know how to cook a good steak as well. Portion sizes are generous and meals are well presented. The place is always nice & clean. They have specials all the time. I would certainly recommend it, and it has a lot of regular clients which is a good indication of good standards. Try it....More

I came here for the first time, we ordered 3 meals, the steak was awesome as well as lamb shanks however the Asian crispy beef salad was terrible and I would suggest the Chef please review the soy glaze dressing, it was too sweet, I...forced myself to finish and gave up at the end (I was doubtful whether is was real Asian flavour but still gave it a try) Overall the staff were very friendly and food was mostly fine.More

We went to the Noreast hotel again on Wednesday with a group and once again it was a great outing. We have been here many times and the food is always good and staff VERY friendly. The menu is simple and straight forward with a...very budget conscious Senior's selection. The only issue we had was that we were waiting for some friends arriving late and advised the waitress to "hold the order" until they arrived but somehow the communication got a bit jumbled and the table was served before the latecomers arrived but overall this was not a deal breaker. We will return.More

Went into this little pub with a few mates. Looks nice inside but quite small. We all ordered the Chicken Parmi & Pint deal which for $16 dollars got us a huge meal and a free beer. Also ordered a serve of Potato Skins as...an entreé. Image is our entreé Been here before with my partner on Saturday for a t-bone. Honestly this place is quite amazing for how little it is!

The Nor East is a little gem. The meals are delicious and generously sized, but also affordable. A rare combination nowadays! Plenty of choices, with the specials board always offering something to tempt your tastebuds. The sauces are, in my opinion, THE best I have...ever had. The mushroom sauce in particular...devine. Highly recommend.More

In 2018 I gave a negative review of the Nor East. My wife and I decided to give it one LAST chance after reading the response to my previous review. Thank goodness we did. My wife chose the Sea salt and pepper Calamari, whilst I...opted for the Wagyu Rump. Both meals were cooked to perfection, the calamari and the steak so tender and delicious. The salad was delightful, having some Iceberg Lettuce included. The chips which accompanied both meals were also good. The staff were pleasant and friendly both greeting us and wishing us good night on our departure.More
