This hotel offers a range of prices for food. You can have meals off the menu or cheaper $13 meals which we had. The meals were a generous serve and they catered for our GF.

Not a bad little local pub, and the staff are friendly as you would expect in a little country town. They do what they can to accommodate different dietary needs even though the menu doesn't list much for them. A few more options and some creativity would be my only suggestion.

This hotel has dinners for $13 Monday to Thursday. It is certainly good value and there are good size serves. I had the scallops which were a bit dry but my wife had flathead tails which were beautiful. There are not a lot of eating options it would seem in Smithton but there is a Woolworths Supermarket.

Two hot and tasty roast lamb meals in a dining room straight out of the 70's. The staff were friendly and happy and helpful. Delicious meal, thanks

Went to the Bridge Hotel on the recommendation of the River Breeze caravan park owner. We had the scallops, vegetables and chips for $13. The food was great, service was great and the pub was bustling. Enjoyed it so much went again. You could not beat it for value for money. A great pub!

I had the roast which was a good basic roast for $13 special.. Meat was a little tough but hey for $13 it was fine. My husband had steak but that was a little over cooked and a little tough but certainly edible and there was a large group of us .. Overall we were happy and will return
