Very ordinary meal. Main meal lukewarm Suspect it had been reheated. Ginger and pear puddiing had no pear flavour and was hard on bottom . Very disappointed.
Service very slow. Waited over an hour for a main course. Other later diners with the same order served earlier.
The service was amazing. We had an awesome waitress and another waiter who would check in on us just in case our waitress had forgotten about us. Our was particularly impressed with our waitress’ manner. She lowered herself down to sitting height when speaking to our 7yr old and she always offered solutions when we were choosing from the menu. Our daughter is gf but there weren’t any gf options on the kids menu so she asked the waiter to pan dry my daughters fish and offered us side options to help fill her up. She was very pleasant. So was the waiter who checked in to make sure we were being looked after. The food came in great time. As far as Service it was 100% awesome. It would be wonderful to see more non alcoholic options such has virgin mojitos etc.
Amazing place for dinner! Already recommended some friends and they loved it! Will definitely be back in the future (also was not expecting complimentary Garlic Bread! What a bonus!)
Eggs benny had one piece of bacon. Eggs were hard and not much holandise sauce which made it very dry. Wedges and lamb was good
Food was delicious, much better than expected. Would recommend to friends.
Great service and lovely dinner thank you . We will be back! Best steak meal we have had in a little while
We were the only ones there for lunch, so really no great atmosphere.As it was a wet Sunday, we also realise that it would probably be a quiet time for the hotel, so no fault of yours. This was our first time dining at the hotel, and we came away feeling very satisfied. Thanks for a lovely lunch.We will be back again.
Service was awsome would have liked to be given the option to sit outside
Awesome service, delicious food (mains could have been a bit bigger)
This was an amazing dinner out to celebrate and it couldn't have been better. Ambience, service, great value and superb food...entrees, mains and desert all delicious. We felt very special. Thankyou.
Excelent meal and good service
A really enjoyable meal
Food very nice. The bread was a bit over priced. The portions a little small but that is standard at most restaurants.
Great service and good quality food!
Good food. Good service. Good atmosphere. The waiter needs to smile a little bit more.
Myself and friends have not enjoyed the current menu as well as some earlier ones. We were pleased to hear, about six weeks ago, that a new menu was imminent. It is disappointing to be still awaiting its arrival.
Dinner : Surprising no chicken on menu. No Lemonade or tomato juice at the Bar or restaurant - a standard non alcoholic drink! Ordered garlic bread for 3 people and got 4 pieces of bread!!! How much is just 1 order of garlic bread?? Breakfast was great.
The staff did a great job catering for our big party of 13. My only negative is that I feel like the meals should be better planned out. For example, I ordered the lamb which came with a butternut puree, sour cream, macadamia nuts and jus. It felt like an incomplete meal without vegetables. For $34 I think the meal should be more balanced. Apart from that, we had such a great experience. Thank you.
Great food but thought the fish of the day dish portion was rather small. Staff very good, friendly and efficient.
The bacon wasn't crispy at the buffet breakfast. But the hashbrowns were AMAZING.
