We ate here last night, my meal of fish was very ordinary and unappealing, It took ages to get our meal and our fellow diners had already finished. Whilst the surrounds have been updated it still lacks atmosphere. you could not buy just a seniors meal you had to have soup or dessert

All our meals were tasty and prompt, good sized and well priced . Fabulous playground at back of venue which grandson loved. Will definitely go out... More

6 friends met for dinner, and were seated in the freezing cold bistro. Queued for approx 15 minutes to order meals, then another 10-15 to get drinks. Staff passing queues were rude and pushy, yelling out that they were 'coming through'. We asked several staff if the air-conditioning could be adjusted to something more comfortable, and were told by one... More

We called in for a late lunch lucky they serve till 2.30pm we just made it in time to order. We choose from the senior menu and it was nice. The plum chicken with veg went down well with the glass of free wine that is included in the seniors meal deal, house wine of course not bad. We settled... More

One of our local pubs , the ''Lower'' has recently had major renovations. Very nice, but it seems in order to pay for the new surroundings, you'll be paying, and paying big time. A group of us went for lunch on Sunday (02/10) and a play on the pokies, but a Schooner of VB is $7.80 compared to $5.00 at... More

reasonably cheap bistro meal Porterhouse steak was nice, Fish was certainly overcooked. Kids were happy with the extensive inside playground. drinks service at the bar was slow (not enough room or staff) Meals came out quickly but were average pub type meals.

Lunch here was good. Good sized meals and quite tasty. The refurbishment is excellent with the play area a hit for the kids. Kids meals good although should perhaps come with a drink. The bar and outside terrace area with huge tv looks like a fun place to meet friends.

Called in for a spot of lunch on a Friday, Entered the premises via the pokie room which had a large selection of machines with very few people playing them, & made our way through to the restaurant. The area looked pleasant and was very busy, we were shown to a table immediately. After checking the 'Seniors Menu' (yes that's... More

The Lower Plenty Hotel has recently had a facelift and is looking really good. Spacious bistro with great affordable food. Great for larger groups as well as your small lunch or dinner group. Wonderful ambience and friendly staff. Brand new children's playground. Highly recommend.
