This hotel does a fabulous lunch at quite reasonable costs. Covid 19 regulations in place, so go there with confidence. If you are small eaters, you could easily share 1 meal.

Don’t let the outside appearance fool you, this is a great find. We were a bit nervous as the front is all locked up and it’s looks a bit rough. We found the entrance to one side and walked through a run down looking TAB...area to the bistro. The bistro area is not flash, but it’s bright and clean and the menu has all the favourites. We chose a schnitzel, scotch fillet and kids steak all of them were great portion size and fantastic price. The scotch fillet was excellent and even the kids steak was bigger and better quality than I have had as a main in higher priced restaurants. Would not hesitate to recommend for families or anybody looking for good value tasty meals.More

We met local family here while we were staying at Trial Bay Gaol and tbh the food here was better than any place we ate at in South West Rocks. Really great prices, huge portions and just tasty country meals at a laid back country...pub. The steak was ridiculously good!More

Travelling down towards Sydney we needed a stop-over and found this little gem in Frederickton right on the river. We were early before 6 pm on Saturday night and were served quickly. I selected grilled salmon which was beautiful with crispy vegetables and mashed potato....Very healthy! My husband had an equally nice hot Calamari salad. Will be back when next here.More

Called into Fredo to visit some friends and had dinner at Fredo pub, my wife and I both ordered the Steak Killpatrick, the meal arrived with 5 large oysters on top of the steak and the steak was cooked perfect and so tender and a...nice bottle of Shiraz made the night. Our friends meals were also superb. Definitely check out Macleay River Hotel at Frederickton.More

Stopped off at this hotel on the way through Kempsey and was pleasantly suprised. It is a typical pub with ample parking out the back. Food did take a long time to arrive at 40mins when we were the first to order, but it was...definitely worth the wait. We ordered the schnitzel and steak and they were a good size at a great price. Definitely will stop off here again.More
