The Herdsman (or the Herdy to some) is a very reasonably priced eatery with average quality food. I'f had some meals here that have been really good and they have some great lunch specials however, more often then not, I'd class the food here as merely 'OK' - I don't believe it's ever been bad. Other than that it is... More

The Herdie has no pretentions it is an ALH pub trying to satisfy many markets and seems to do a reasonable job! Enjoyed my dinner here chosen from a large pub menu - order taken efficiently, meal arrived quickly and was as expected (and described)! Not expensive and for the quality is good value Will visit again

Went with a family on Sunday night (kids eat free Sun and Mon if I'm not mistaken). Very tasty meals, kids serves are hit and miss (spaghetti Bolognese was not enough for a 9yo but a chicken parma was aplenty!) Would highly recommend.

Had an enjoyable meal at the Herdies and there was no complaint from any of our group about the meals or the service. Tuesday night special was 250gm steak with chips and salad for $15. If you prefer a la carte there is a good selection of meals on the menu.

We have regularly gone here for years but recently it has changed to table service which makes it more if a hassle for those who want to split the bill, although there is an ATM in the venue for those who do not carry cash. I ordered a Thai beef salad last time and there as no chilli to be... More

We arrived at the Herdsman Tavern for our Christmas work lunch and found our tables set beautifully with Christmas decorations. The staff was friendly and quick to take our orders. It took a while for the food to arrive and everyone who had ordered a burger, parmesiana or plain schnitzel could only eat the side dish and left the meat.... More

We had dinner here. Being a vegan and eating in a tavern is difficult. I ask the wait person if there was anything on the menu vegan. She said no. But i found this roasted vegetable salad. It was amazing altho too many vegetables i couldn't finish it. I have never had a salad with this many roasted vegies. Could... More

The Menu has changed recently and it is no good. Seems the Chef has changed as well because I have never eaten or been served such an overcooked dried out tough piece of Fish, in my entire life. Stay away from this place (foodwise) until they get their act together.

I went with my son and his young family. Being from the bush, I had never seen any thing like it. So refreshing that a tavern has gone over and above to make a place that families can relax totally with their children. The staff were great with the kids with pencils and colouring in on the tables. They had... More

Had the pie and mash, it was delicious. Reasonably priced, great service, didn't have to wait long for food. Big play area inside for kids.
