Pleasantly surprised. My husband and I went on a Friday night without a booking. It was very busy we got the second last table. I ordered a parma with mushroom gravy which we both enjoyed and he had the penne which he said was really good. We didn't wait long for the meals. Service was excellent from all waitresses and bar staff. Prices were reasonable. Would happily go back

Had a great night without the kids. Highly recommended the oysters, barra, and the pizza. Delicious
Bar staff were awesome, and so were the locals

Sitting right in the middle of Trafalga, this gem of a pub is a real find. We eat there every time we pass through and the chef is amazing: the food is always delicious with a great beer and wine list up at the bar and friendly staff.

Ordered two pizzas to be picked up (they sadly don't offer delivery). The kids pizza was absolutely delicious and just enough pieces for our two kids. Topped high with the best ingredients - including pineapple ? - haters gonna hate! Haha ?

The tandoori chicken pizza we ordered for the adults was delicious, but perhaps a bit soggy if anything. It came with a thinner base, which I think was to it's detriment as the toppings and sauce seeped through and caused it to be tricky to cut, pick up and hold. Perhaps it was just a once off though. We still demolished it! We will definitely be ordering again to try the rest of the menu ?

Won't go again at 12.10pm ran out of 3 specials. I order steak sandwich ,not available. Wanted a pizza not served at lunch time. To be fair that was written on menu. Ordered a chicken BLAT. Served on a big piece of sour dough , it had two tiny chicken tenderloins on it . Both wouldn't have weighed more than 50 grams. Basically a bit lettuce and tomato and a piece of bacon. Bloody awful. Toilet was filthy and in urgent need of a makeover

We stopped here for a pub lunch on our way home from camping. The staff were friendly and service was great. Fish was delicious and fresh. My husband had pesto chicken which he enjoyed. The serving sizes were very generous.

Couldn't rate this lower if I tried, just moved down here wanting to try the local pub in our area, thinking there would be nice country service . Completely overlooked before we could even speak. the what looked like a manager didn't even give us two seconds to ask if we would like a table but bypassed us completely for the couple next to us asking if they would like a table and walked off while we stood there gobsmacked. Absolutely rude service, can't even comment on the food because we didn't even get that far. Never again.

Close to Trafalgar train station, this hotel provides good food in a timely manner.
The staff are cheery and helpful which was lucky as our group (14 people) presented a challenge.
Can recommend this place as somewhere to go for decent pub grub.

Recently visited for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. By no means is it ultra-modern and -la-carte, but that's no issue here.

The service was pretty good while we weren't served straight away it wasn't a big deal since it was a quite sort of day anyway. The staff that did serve us was super nice and friendly with no issues at all. As for the bartender, she was pleasant aswell.

The food was fantastic, not overpriced rubbish that you could do better at home or was it over the top and fancy. I had a lunch special of gummy shark and it was fantastic. It wasn't an over the top amount or at least not enough either, being the perfect portion. The prices were fair too.

I would recommend either a lunchtime visit or even a big or small get together, as the facility both homely but large enough for these sorts of things.

Love the place, not going back until the satay chicken is back on the menu, I don't understand why you say it's very popular, then would remove it ??not smart business.

Some not too bad beers on tap and even more by the bottle. I was there on parmi night and the Outback Parmi was next level. Massive and delicious. This place was a pleasant surprise! Minus one star for having Sky News on the tele

Yea look, place looks nice, typical country pub.
The pizza was tasty, great dough, but the ham and other toppings were very 'stock standard suburban pizza shop' on the pizza of the week.

Absolutely terrible, $27 for a chicken burger... dry and stale bun, rubbery chicken, fake cheese and drowned in sauce.... Maccas would be a much better bet

Always good food, nice atmosphere. Just next time if it's quiet don't sit down the only customers in the door way where delivery men walk past constantly! We had one guy walk back and forth from the kitchen at least 10times. Then other clients would walk directly past us (Trafalgar Primary school staff gathering) amongst other deliveries and staff. Also level the tables out we spilt our drink because the table was so uneven. I ended up having to chock the table up. But still good food and nice service!

My nieces 21st birthday was to be at Churchill pub on Saturday 5th March 2022. They called to say they lost power at the last minute. Not only did Trafalgar pub make sure this event happened on such short notice, they made sure we were welcome, the staff were friendly and the meals exceptional and hot and no one was left waiting for such a huge booking. Please pass on my comments to your staff and thank you for making her day memorable

Great pub just what I was looking for. A good menu range, lots of options and reasonably priced in the Bistro. Plenty of beers available in the fridge if tap cant tempt you. All the staff were really friendly, the space felt inviting and clean. Although the garlic bread was 'run of the mill', the meals were really nice and parking is really easy - a great locale.
