Owners Favorite makes you feel sorry for him/her. He/she must suffer from a meager develloped sense of taste. The fried egg on top was probably created at a quarter past nine a.m. while the bacon not much later was emerged in hot fat. At 18.00 hours both were dry and dehydrated, so they reached nearly the state of "not qualified for human consumption". Chips were fine, so that makes it 2 stars.

We haven't been here for over a year since a family member was diagnosed with coeliac disease and knowing that Coeliac's are tricky to cater for when eating out. We haven't really been out to eat due to this but a birthday dinner was the reason.
But......the supervisor in the bistro was amazing and went beyond for us with the chef to cater for the coeliac family member. She feasted on a delicious plate of garlic prawns, confidently knowing the chef and the supervisor were all over it and were cautious. Even letting the girl know, who took our order to put coeliac next to the coeliac order and then double confirming with the chef that it was all good.
The rest of us enjoyed Parma and Thai beef salad.
I feel so confident in returning to the bistro with my coeliac family member and being able to enjoy a meal without fear.
Thank you. We had delicious meals and a beautiful night.
Kudos to the chef and the supervisor.

Lunch on the 8th of Feb we had the potato and leek soup. Tasted nothing like potato and leek. Very bland. Carbonara was so much liquid and tasted terrible. Staff were friendly.

Our family have been going to The Crown for years we even had my dad's 80th there. Always enjoyed the meals and atmosphere, until now. The last 2 times I've been for lunch the meals were terrible. I had the potato salad which was acceptable and last week the mango salad. So disappointed as I chose this because I thought the mango would be refreshing. Unfortunately, there was no mango! The salad consisted of half a dozen small prawns a few cherry tomatoes and a bag of spinach for $30!!

We had a booking for a meeting this week to be followed by lunch. The hotel chose to double up on the bookings and left our elderly group who were on walkers, wheelchairs and using walking sticks standing in a corridor with no seats for 3/4 hour absolutely disgusting behaviour on the part of Crown. We were unable to hold our meeting for which some of us travelled over 1/2 hour to attend. No apology or anything, they even locked the door so we could not enter. We were treated terribly.

Took over an hour fir my meal. Others in the table waited longer, one got hers within about 10 minutes.
Ordered prawn and chorizo risotto. Counted two prawns and three bits of sausage which could be loosely uncalled chorizo.
Fluffy rice and total disorganisation with respect to food delivery.
A less than average place in which to dine.

When you order an Aussie Parmi.
You don't expect a snitzel with a strip of Bacon and an egg on top.
It's NOT a parmi as advertised in the menu.
Over cooked. Chicken was dry.
Will never go back.

Best beer in the outer east.
Lamb Roast was plentiful on the plate but it had no taste and was extremely chewy,, one steak was still mooing and the other was newked.

Pleasantly surprised by Crown Hotel. Thought it was just a sports pub but the restaurant has a nice atmosphere - although still has TVs playing games which some people like! Good was good for the normal pub restaurant prices.
Service wasn't great but otherwise could be worth a visit.

Big pokie machine area if you like that sort of thing!

Lunch yesterday was very disappointing food wise. Partner had the Porterhouse which was chewy and fatty. His response was "worst steak I've ever had". I had the Seafood Basket. It tasted like it had come from the freezer section of Coles. Tasteless and overcooked. My grandson had the burger which he enjoyed. Very disappointing. Sorry, we won't be going back.

Took my father his sister and sister in-law back to the Crown Hotel where his parents ran the pub for 12 years in the 70's. It was an absolute credit to the current owner for the fantastic refurbishment and condition the Hotel was in, the meals and staff were excellent. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience which bought back many memories.

Got there just before the kitchen closed.
Staff were awesome.
The chef was very considerate and plated my meal on 2 plates, as he saw I was with someone.
The Veal Parma was great.
Will be back soon for another meal.

The staff are very friendly and there was a good range available on both the main and seniors menu. The food was very good and with generous proportions. Parking at the rear was plentiful, however entrance through the front door is necessary to avoid a significant stairway via the pokies room.

We were recommended this hotel from the caravan park we were staying at and had a buy one get one free deal in conjunction between the hotel and caravan park, you are given coupons to claim your discount, its all about loyalty and driving customers to participation businesses.
It was Easter Saturday there was no small print on the coupons saying they couldn't be used during the Easter break even the caravan park didn't mention this when they handed us the discount coupons, however we got mixed messages once at the hotel, the first guy were question can the coupons be used he looked at them and said no problem, different story when trying to use them ordering food I was told they cant be used on any public holiday, I only went to this hotel because of the deal taking a group of 6 with me, we did stay there and ordered meals but a little disappointed at the lack of information between caravan park and hotel staff, once ordered and payed for I noticed an extra $5 charge on my invoice and questioned this I was told is a 15% surcharge for public holiday, this was not conveyed anywhere on the menu or mentioned prior, I don't mind paying a surcharge it would have just been nice to be informed prior to purchase.

The food was good and reasonably priced staff friendly and would recommend eating here.

I give a 4 star rating for the good food and service but loosing 1 star from miscommunication and confusion with staff knowledge and not being transparent with charges and discounts.

Unusual layout with a dominant poker machine basement, but good meals of generous size served by friendly young staff. Useful function room.

We had dinner here on Thursday 13th October. I had a seniors seafood basket which I was disappointed with. Frozen packet fish is not enjoyable when you go out.
I would like to commend the young man & girl working the kitchen & tables. Friendly and efficient. The girl working behind the bar, when you go to help with the table settings, PLEASE DO NOT handle the tops of the cutlery with your unloved hands. Very unhygienic.

It was ok, calamari entree could have had a bit more cooking, it was yellow not golden.
The chips were different, and under cooked, yellow not gold, and actually didnt even try them, they are a 2mm slice curved to a v shape, I first though they were wedges.
The calamari was so soft and tasty, enjoyed it, but just cook a minute or 2 longer would have been tops.
The fish n chips main, was a big serve, it was good, if you enjoy a thick batter.
Thankyou, and comments intended to be positive and helpful.

Large dining areas, looks clean and new. Great spot for team lunches or dinner and drinks after.
The barramundi I had was delicious. The salt and pepper squid looked good too, the serving size was generous!

The staff were very good but the quality of the Christmas lunch served was very underwhelming.
For any bistro to serve up a pre-frozen peas and corn combination is really disgraceful. The least you should expect is fresh vegetables cooked from scratch.
The pork and turkey were rather tasteless and frankly hard to tell apart. Also the plum puddings looked like the individual ones you can buy in a supermarket. Obviously not made on the premises.
Too many shortcuts were taken.

Good meal but very concerned that the owner/manager Kim has not adopted no plastic drinking straws. I have been enjoying meals here for many years but will boycott now until decent alternative straws have been sourced.

I really enjoyed my meal. Porterhouse Steak, was delicious.But the star was their special Crown bbq grave. It was excellent with bacon, mushrooms and worcestershire sauce flavour. I really enjoyed it and it was a bit of fun instead of the usual gravies.Great atmosphere and friendly staffThank you.

I am sorry to report that the Crown Hotel is a shadow of it's former self in my opinion, once the best pub in the district with the dinning room serving high quality meals, today unfortunately this is not case as we experienced. Our meals were at best described as "basic & lacklustre" in flavour & presentation. The dinning room & decor is also somewhat out dated and uninviting hence I would suggest that the $15 Tradie Lunch special advertised on the front window should be a guide to set your expectations by. FYI the staff saved the day with friendly, prompt service & a beer cold to help wash down my pretty ordinary meal... it would appear that the focus today is on the gaming room & not on dinning experience what a shame...

Very lovely staff. And the food was delicious. Great family appeal. Maybe in the future consider parent room facilities, the current ones are okay. But not helpful if you're a hands-on dad.
