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.

We had lunch on the deck. Relaxing atmosphere. Plenty to choose from on the menu. The food was fabulous and not your typical pub food. We had the grilled chicken breast with coconut, mushroom risotto, asparagus & mango; the chicken parmigiana with house Napoletana sauce,...ham, mozzarella, salad & fries; and the ginger battered fish & chips with rocket, spanish onion, pickled ginger, sprouts, shaved parmesan, fries.More

The food is very bad. Has been frozen and reheated. I have eaten here several times and always disappointed.

You can't go past this gem. Plenty of parking behind the pub. Varied menu and the food was divine. Definitely worth a visit or detour off the M1.

Good kids meals, good burger and the salad with the squid was really well done! Thanks for a great lunch guys. Only tip is from my 9 year old daughter’s kids meal - she counted out the chips and noted “only 15 chips with my...nuggets - why are they stingy over chips?”More

We had a great meal at the bistro last weekend, with prompt service and friendly smiles. We have eaten here a few times and return because the bistro service and food are generally good. However when it comes to ordering drinks at the bar it...becomes another matter. I do not know who they hire but obviously people who basically do not want to work, give any kind of service or even attempt to smile.It is a real shame because it kind of ruins the experience. I think there needs to be some training and hire people who really want to be there!More

Nice large bistro area with a great outlook and vibe. Asked for a change in menu if I could get a rump steak with the warm vegetable salad. I was initially told by one staff member that they couldn’t do this until another staff member...came along and said he would have to check with the kitchen staff. The kitchen staff were more than happy to adapt to my request and charge me accordingly. As I walked away I heard this staff member say to the kitchen staff that’s the weirdest order I’ve ever heard of. So I returned to this staff member and asked if I could also have no dressing on the salad. As I walked away he again said to the kitchen staff now she wants no dressing on the salad. Well it turned to be the most delicious meal I had enjoyed in such a long time, although it did arrive to the table with the dressing I had asked not to be not included. My husband had the Chilli Prawn Linguine, which he said was good. Great food but this place just needs some new staff with a focus on customer service.More

This pub has lovely atmosphere with a range of rooms, lovely decks and a lounge with fireplace in winter. Friendly service. Fish and chips were ordinary. Batter terrible, soggy and rubbery. Sweet potato chips also soft and soggy. Salad was quite nice. Shame we've eaten...here before and it's been good.More

On arrival we had to wait for recognition while the staff members chatted. Had made a booking but we were told they were booked out. After showing the booking confirmation email we were told they would try and accommodate us. A table was sorted. When...we went to order and pay I was charged a different amount than was stated on the menu. When I questioned this I was told that the menu price was incorrect but as the register had this price I would need to pay it. I suggested this was not ok. The staff member rudely commented that it was only a few dollars so why was I complaining. At this point we decided to leave. A dreadful experience. The male staff member could not have been more rude.More

Ordered the osso bucco- arrived chewy and mostly bone. $30 for this - nah - returned and ordered the burger instead. Still waiting after an hour. It’s not busy. This used to be a really good kitchen.

Was looking for lunch in Bangalow and had read poor reviews so nearly didn’t try this pub. Very wet, rainy day so went in anyway. Food was very good, staff were friendly and service was very quick. Very much enjoyed the whole experience . Great...for a drink and people watching overlooking footpath.More

Using the excuse of Covid for a lack of staff is a testament to bad management. It reflects the obvious fact that good staff don’t want to work for a place that treats their customers with little respect. The verbal abuse I received recently from...the bar manager on the restaurant side was deplorable. You should not have a job in this industry. The little amount of unprofessional staff you have are clearly scared of you and the kitchen is a shambles. The owners probably should of taken the option to sell when they could.More

After arriving and meeting up with friends I went to the bar to get a couple of drinks and was greeted with “Where’s your mask?!” Not a Hello first? In the process of telling him I don’t wear one, he kept walking and came back...with a box of masks, I tell him I have an exemption, he snapped at me saying “Well why didn’t you say that straight away!” My reply was “You didn’t give me a chance you walked away”. He proceeded to walk away again and serve other people who only just came up to the bar, ignoring me. I said as such and he came over and had a go at me! Later the same guy ( the new bar manager apparently) told my group that we had leave, my friend questioned him as to why and he said by association, we had only been there for 20 mins !!!??? I later found out he said exactly the same thing to another table. He didn’t ask any of my group or others for a Vax Cert or check in code and there was 11 of us. A disgusting way to treat people, we won’t be coming back! Also the restaurant menu is terrible, it has gone downhill big time!More
