                                                            I thought the menu was small and for someone who doesnt eat salad there was no vegetables available.

                                                            Food was good. Wine list was great for a pub. Need to have more bottles available in the bar though.

                                                            Lovely setting, comfortable seating. Waitress very pleasant but not helpful with respect to dishes offered. Very limited and expensive menu - needs to be extended with more dishes. We assume that this menu is “work in progress” and will improve. We would need to see an improvement to return. So much potential but we were disappointed.

My wife & I were greeted upon arrival, with sincere warm & friendly smiles which enhanced our experience. Big shout out to our waitress Lois. Lois was friendly, professional & genuinely cared. Once seated, Lois delivered exceptional customer & maintained her professionalism until the end. Look forward to returning again soon.

                                                            The menu in the dining room is pathetic - only 3 mains apart from steak and one of the 3 was unavailable - at 6pm with no one else in the dining room. We asked for the bar menu but was told we had to leave the dining room to order from that menu. How ridiculous - see you later - you’ve lost us.

We sat outside last night in the sunshine in a large booth which was ideal for my family and dog. Just a great place: my happy place.

                                                            I ordered a steak don’t eat salad asked for a few more hand cut chips came with a few when it arrived I said for $45 I could get more and said I want more and I’m not paying for it. More did arrive burnt. I could have gone to McDonald’s for better chips wound not go there again. It’s a pub not NOBU totally disappointed would not recommend it.

                                                            Reserved tables in the Courtyard with my family of 16. Ordered from the Bar menu. Food was absolutely woeful. Pizza’s, Burgers & Parma’s all tasteless, burnt or dry as toast! Absolutely disappointed. Used to love going to this place growing up. The only saving grace was the service from the friendly and efficient bartenders! Pub food gone terribly wrong!

                                                            I think the outside seating could be improved for older patrons or informed of the seating being offered. I asked for an extra hot latte. It was lukewarm and very strong.

                                                            Not gonna lie was very average not many positives. Drinks never came when we ordered on the app had to go to the bar and ask for them. Had to get up and ask for cutlery after being told they would bring it. Steak was dry fish was rubbery and tough. Overall not great.

                                                            Love the look of this hotel. Great staff, so friendly & helpful. I rang to ask a simple question but you only had voice messages. Battered Fish & Chips were very ordinary….mainly because of the bland fish. My friends nachos looked great & so much she could only eat about half. I neglected to ask what they were like. Will be happy to return again & try another meal.

                                                            Our expectations where high that the refurbishment would have resulted in a better dinning experience. Unfortunately that was not to be. They initially put us at bar seating when we reserved a table. (To be fair the dinning area was apparently closed). The menu was a bar menu with limited choices. The staff were trying hard but they just didn't get it right.

                                                            We found whilst service was very good, there should have been more choices on the menu. Only one salad, no ceasar, no seniors menu 😏

                                                            Food was revolting. Pop corn chicken was insipid, fish and chips greasy and not cooked through, streak though, pasta watery, pizza dry. Much to do to make this all edible. Won’t be coming back

                                                            Didn’t love our luncheon experience Saturday, food was just so, service average. Will come back in the summer though and try beer garden area, things may have picked up by then.
