We ate two beef burgers and one pizza and all three of us were really happy with those however service was sloppy with a long wait for drinks to arrive at the table and one waitress completely forgetting one drink anyway. It took ages for the meal order to be taken too. I think that a third person was needed... More

Stopped in for lunch and it was fantastic. A pint of Munich Dunkel for $8 on special was a great start. My wife had the seafood medley and said it was one of the best meals she's had!!! I had the lamb curry and it was beautiful. Great service. Great spot.

My Tandoori hamburger and my wife's Korean Beef Stir Fry were both presented quickly and by very pleasant staff. The stir fry was marketed as a smaller meal but still a terrific size and very tasty. The Tandoori burger had just the right amount of spice and beautifully presented. The 2 pints of Pale Ale I consumed were as good... More

If you're staying in the East Gippsland area a detour inland to Bruthen and the Bullant Brewery won't disappoint. Staff are very friendly and inclusive, there are plenty of beers, one for every taste and the food is excellent.

Large group visit pre-booked. My (and my husband's) meals were good, but not great. Steak was $35 and nothing to write home about, prawn/avo salad was okay, but very strong vinegar dressing which overpowered everything. Great spot, pleasant surroundings, but the real problem was paying the bill: large tables all had to pay at the same time, so very awkward... More
