On the night we came in it wasn't too busy. We were seated promptly and orders taken in good time. She likes her sirloin steak medium-well and I like my rump steak medium-rare. Unfortunately, we ended up getting the opposite. I also thought a 'how was your meal?' was standard for most restaurants. Anyway, we'd like try this again if... More

This would have to be one of the best pub meals my family has had in a while - food was good, cheap and the kids had fun! Thank you

Hadnt long been in Australia after a 30 hour flight. You need to be hungry to finish off this dish. Service was very good and they even offered to bag up the unfinished part of my schnitzel to take home.

Very cold air conditioning, slow service and very noisy place. Steak over cooked and spicy food really not. Not recommended

We came across this establishment as many restaurants were still closed around the Christmas period. Ordering was a bit funny as we had to line up to place our orders and pay first. Guess they were short handed with staff. Anyway, service was still friendly. Helped us settle down to a table (we had two toddlers and a baby with... More

Attended recently for lunch with family. We had the lunch special schnitzel which was huge. The serve of chips with the lunch special was on the small side given the hearty appetites of the boys but we ordered an extra chips and certainly could not complain given the low price of the lunch special. More sensible eaters will want to... More

second visit and no complaints. Food is good pub style, large portions and good flavours. Service was good, atmosphere a bit sterile but not too off putting.

I as in Nowra to visit family and was taken to the Australian Hotel on the first night. Wow, I was told about the schnitzel, and not one to pass up a challenge though "yeah I'm Hungry, that'll do me". Well......I could not finish it. They asked if I would like to take the rest home and I accepted. It... More

Decided to try this restaurant again post the renovation, despite the venue upgrade the menu is still limited and unimaginative. Steak was well cooked but lacked flavour, side dish of veggies was satisfactory. Specifically requested for something not to be served and it was served anyway. Wait staff are friendly but service was sluggish. Won't be hurrying back.

The specials are great value for money. We were travelling through and it offered a hearty meal and table service beer/wine. Kids meals were fresh and healthy. Fast, friendly service even when very busy.
