    It was nice to sit on the deck with our dog, nice food and good beer selection, but it was a bit cold. The fireplace was not on and there wasn’t a heater.

    We love the Pig and whistle. Basic menu is very good and variety. Specials are usually good but a bit more variety sometimes. Beef and Yorkshire pudding was great a few weeks ago. Can’t complain.

    I understand that these places are struggling for staff but notification of delay would be a good thing. We eat there often and enjoy the food and staff are very attentive. Also the Sunday roast was missing probably due to staff shortage sadly. All the best guys! Our family will continue to support your business. Regards Terry

    This is such a cute place in the bush with rustic atmosphere and hearty food. Unfortunately though we had a lunch booking for 3pm, (phoned ahead and booked online a week before,) we didn’t know they were closing at 5pm for a private function and we had to be off the deck by 4pm so they could set up. And were told that they couldn’t put wood on the fire inside as they were letting it go out. The staff were lovely though super stressed as not enough hands to make it a relaxing visit. I’d given it another try but hope we don’t encounter the same chaos next time.

    our visit was a great success starting with the beautiful surrounds. Once inside you get the feel of a warm cozy English pub. We chose the roast of the day . The beef was tender and full of flavour , vegies perfectly roasted and the yorkshire pudding spot on . Staff were friendly and service was prompt

    The set menu was very limited and not able to choose other options unfortunately. The pork roast was very dry and seemed to include frozen but reheated vegetables.

    Charged me $30 a head for kids meals which was a bowl of ice cream and chips and nuggets… nearly fell over. Understand $70 for adults but ridiculous for kids. Live local and have been here many many times but so so disappointed. Really hope they reevaluate this Matt

The Menu was varied & the servings were huge & delicious. We are looking forward to our next visit. Thank you so much for making an Anniversary celebration so special.💓

    Very enjoyable ambiance. The service was quick and efficient. My meal was too large so a takeaway box was provided for the leftovers which I had the next day. The mulled wine was good and the log fire gave a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
