Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Definitely one of the most budget pub meals ever. Dry chicken schnitzel (which was just a frozen chicken patty), no sauce to go with it. Some chips and lettuce with tomato. Very basic. Ate half of it. Not value for money @ about $28!!!!! Drinks ok. Service was ok. WOULD NOT go back for food again 😒

Family hotel, restaurant and pub with very nice host. Room was large and clean enough. Bathroom and toilets were shared on the floor. Wifi connection was okay, pub and restaurant at the ground floor :-)

Went to order the steak and lambshanks. Informed after getting to front of queue that out of steak. Went back to table for renewed instructions. Thankfully queue had only grown by two. Order chicken schnitzel and lambshanks. An hour later an apologetic fill in cook arrived at the table to inform us they had No lambshanks. Ffs they couldn’t even provide comfort it’s not going to take another hour for the replacement fish and chips! Very generous in not worrying about the additional $2 cost of the fish and chips. Unfortunately my preliminary investigation revealed that there aren’t many other evening meal options in Murchison. Would have been nice of them to throw us a garlic bread or something to help pass the nearly two hours waiting!!! The fish and chips was less than cheap takeaway quality and the chicken schnitzel was cardboard in batter. Unlike Arnie WE WONT BE BACK!

Stopped for a meal while travelling. $33 for a meal and was told all veges preset in fridge in a plate ready to microwave. Only saving grace was the warm fire and the accomodating and friendly bar man. Food was disgusting

We didnt stay at the Hampden, but we ate there (just as we did 4 years ago) and it was a bloody beauty of a feed. We were astounded at how the kitchen staff just kept cool and focused while the diners came through the door in an endless line. They never got flustered and the quality of the kai never suffered. They were still smiling when we left (with very full tummies).
Bloody amazing, massive feeds.

Nicely cooked lamb shanks and bangers and mash. Absolutely just the ticket after a long day on the road. Fairly basic surroundings, but friendly and helpful staff and great no-nonsense food and a very good pot of tea. Recommended.

Good old country pub. Looks old from the outside but the rooms have been redone so clean tidy and comfortable. Food is a good hotel feed for a very good price. Friendly place.Very good three star standard.

The meals on the menu are pretty expensive with schnitzel at $33, although roast of the day was $25. I had the open Steak sandwich with chips which I think were from a frozen packet.Very average, but the only place open to eat when we arrived.

There are very few places to eat in Murchison so we found ourselves at this restaurant/take-away. The restaurant was large, dated and busy. You order at the kitchen from a young girl out of her depth and receive a buzzer. We were told it would be half an hour for the food, but when it got to over an hour I went to ask when it would be coming. The 'chef' was 80 if he was a day and he couldn't cope either. When the food actually came the steak burger was ok and the chips were nice,- loads of them. We wouldn't eat here again. You would think with Murchison so busy with the coast road closed there would be eating places better than this.
