As six friends enjoying a few days in Kangaroo Valley we had dinner at the pub on two occassions. The beer and food was good pub standard but the service in both the bar and dinning area was horrid. Staff displayed a complete lack of interest. Worth a visit just to see how bad customer service can be.

Very mediocre food. Salt and pepper squid was like cardboard. Obviously out of a freezer bag. Didn't look too clean either. Wouldn't go again.

30 of us had a party using the marquee out the back on a Saturday night. Food was all freshly made gourmet finger food. The service and staff were excellent and food well beyond expectation. This gathering was just right for us and great value.

A large group of us spent an evening here, it's pretty much the only spot big enough and suitable to accommodate large groups in the village. There's also a fenced playground for children set within a large beer garden, so this was a plus. Unfortunately this was the only positive on the night we visited. Other than the chicken parmigiana,... More

From the welcome at the bar to the cheery lass who took my order the Friendly Inn lived up to its name. My chicken parmigiana was the largest I'd ever seen and was certainly filling. Live music topped off a very pleasant evening. I'd be more than happy to go back.

Stopped here for lunch with the family as there was a playground out the back. Decided to just have a beer instead. The beer garden was littered with rubbish and broken furniture. Inside felt grubby and tired as well so went down the road for a feed.

Had dinner on a Saturday night while staying at The Laurels B&B 5 minutes away. Reasonable food for a fair price. One of had the T-Bone at & the other Grilled Barramundi, both well cooked and reasonable price for what you got. They also had a courtesy bus if you needed it (we didn't).

There was a very good choice of mains. Our meals were faultless - delicious and perfectly sized. We were even too full for dessert (which was a shame as there were some very nice sounding desserts on the menu). Meals came out in very good time and service was really friendly. Would recommend this place for a casual meal.
