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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

First impressions were good, lovely welcome from staff, was clean and tidy. Just a tad off putting to be told we had to order soon as the kitchen was closing early because of 'pest control' coming in. I ordered the seafood basket, thinking we are...so close to the sea, it's gonna be a beauty. Bitterly disappointed - the fish bites, squid and shrimp were all store bought frozen and fried (and not well - the fish was cold and soggy in the middle). I honestly would have been better to go to the local chippy - at least it would have been fresh, and even a treat of blue cod and chips would not have cost me $28.00. My partner had the schitzel, which got an 'ok', the gravy tasted like it came from a packet. I took a peek at the burgers that were going to other tables and I would not go back for one. Were my expectations too high that we would get fresh home made/cooked meals from a pub?More

Have been here before. Great garden bar area with plenty of tables. Good service with plenty to choose from to eat and drink. The meals were great value. Do book if you want an outside table as it was very busy.

Just popped in for an impromptu visit - great for our 4 year old, sharing plates were awesome, and our waitress was so friendly and helpful. We'll be back.

Great beer on tap. Really good to see so many vegan options. Very pub like feel. A few too many screens for my liking but other than that consistently good.

We popped into Boundary for an early dinner on the way home recently. A couple of house wines ($9.90 each) a steak meal plus a Chicken burger, $77.00 thank you very much. I don't mind paying reasonable prices for above-average food and wine but high...priced "house wine" and average pub food (the steak was very nicely cooked) but the burger was dry and tasteless with gluggy sauces. Service was adequate but how I hate being served and talked to by staff wearing face masks who then mumble with an accent, it makes life so much harder to understand.More

Outdoor seating area with bouncy castle in the play area made this an ideal place for a family, holiday lunch. Service was prompt and attentive. Fresh pub meals. Child and dog friendly.

Some time ago I wrote a grumpy review about The Boundary. We went there last night for the first time since writing that review and have to say we had a perfect meal and great to see things are back to their normal high standard....Many thanks for a wonderful evening at our local.More

Good selection of tap beers. Food wise they cover off a good range from pub meals to sit down fare. Portion sizes were good and I can recommend the pulled pork burger with the curry fries - hit the spot 100% for me.

Guys, I live in Raumati and have always supported our locals. Went to the Boundary this evening and to say the least, the “meal” I had this evening was shocking. We both ordered burgers, my wife a chicken and me a beef and when we...pay $90.00 for that and a few drinks I wish we’d gone to the local burger joint (and probably saved $60). The wife couldn’t eat the chicken and the beef really was Like a dried up piece of turd. With all this covid stuff going around I’d think you guys could at least dish up something better than I could cook at home, sadly this was not the case. We’ve had some wonderful meals at the Boundary in the past but things would have to drastically improve for us to return.More

Delicious food and great venue, for families or couples. Garden bar and so close to the beach. Summer in the sun under the umbrella or cosy by the fire in winter :-)

Dining as a family is not always easy, the kids last about 10mins before they are itching run riot. Luckily for us not only were the kids offered a kids pack they have a cool kids corner as well. The food, serivce and range of...drinks are all solid. Would recommend for a casual eat or drink, we will be back.More

Went with party of five people, fish & chips with one tiny piece of fish for $25.90, 9 soggy chips and an inedible overdressed salad. Most expensive fish & chip pub meal on the coast, I've checked. The rest of the meals were ok. When...giving feedback upon leaving I spoke to the female manager who took feedback, deducted one meal and a glass of wine from the bill. When I mentioned the noise of screaming kids running loose around the bar the arrogant scruffy looking man who I guess is the owner said they are a family bar and suggested I go somewhere else. It was well handled until he piped up, absolute arrogance. You should leave it to your staff mate!More
