A change of management has ruined past status of this dining room. Having had excellent previous experience I took two elderly friends there but was bitterly disappointed, in fact embarrassed. The previously seasonal menu has now been boosted by a laminated two sided sheet of standard items. We ordered a bottle of Victorian cab sav from the wine menu only... More

A warm, cosy dining experience looking out to a beautiful courtyard garden. Pork with kipfler potatoes perfectly cooked and beautifully presented and to finish a moist chocolate cake with mango ice cream and decorated to perfection with subtle flavours. The open fires in 3 different rooms of this hotel create a wonderful cosy evening out.

I went in last night at about 8.30 pm. I was glad to find anything open on a Monday at all, and I just wanted more than something from the many pizza places. Although it was towards the end of the evening, the young guy behind the bar was welcoming and hospitable. As a hospitality professional of 30 years I... More

First time visiting this hotel. Had dinner with our dance group. The hotel still has private dining rooms which makes it a little more intimate. Good variety of dishes on the menu something to suit everyone. Didn't have to wait too long for our meals but didn't feel rushed. I had Blue grenadier with a very tasty slaw and my... More

Unlike many of the other pubs which have transformed themselves into a much more trendy appearance, this place seems to have maintained its quaint historical character. The first thing I noticed when I came in here was the really cool bar in the front bar. You really don't get many pubs like that any more (though there are a few... More

The decor need updating but apart from that we got very personal service. The menu was good. Not greatly expansive but something for everyone. Glad in was better than the menu displayed on the website. The food was very enjoyable. Recommended.

It's as tired on the inside as it is on the outside which is rare for places around the area that have such a good reputation for their food servings. Was really looking forward to eating here on the recommendation of a few friends but was disappointed in the quality of the food as well as the wine selection. Couple... More

I've been going to this iconic pub for over two decades. the food in the Dining Room is first class befitting a fine restaurant and the food in the pub is great value and classic Aussie style and quality fare. The atmosphere in the bar is straight out of the 1940's and the whole place has a great historic feel... More

Family friendly Pub and Restaurant. More high class than your average pub. Very fun non-threatening atmosphere. Well worth a visit for a drink or a meal. They have daily specials on weekdays.

We chose to have a Bar Meal but were very happy with our selection and choices available. If you are a Collingwood fan then there is plenty of memorabilia on the walls.
