They have an average rating of 4.1 out of 144 reviews, with the latest ratings ranging from 2 to 5.
We didn't stay but ate there 3 nights ago. Two large tables of us, ages ranging between 82 and 6 years old, a big group visiting for a wedding. Table service was provided to make it easier for us all and we got to join in on the meat tray raffle! Such fun. My meal, Greek salad was generous and delicious. It included melt in your mouth rare lamb slices. I didn't hear any negative feedback from those near me. I'd definitely return and most likely will as the bride lives in Violet Town!

Only visited the hotel, unable to comment on the rooms, Great Little Pub in Vilot Town, stopped by for a meal after completing powerline works, Great meals, we ordered both scotch fillet and parma's, both excellent meals with chips and veg.
Highly recommend, just 1-2min from the Hume fwy.
The pub has an inside bistro and plenty of outdoor seating.
Definitely would go back when I'm in the area.

Had lunch here Melbourne Cup weekend. It was delicious and worth the wait. Local pub with large meals and cold beverages. Couldn't have asked for more. Very friendly staff who welcomed our dogs inside and through to the large beer garden.

I'm giving 4 stars despite our meal being undercooked and inedible.

The hotel is nice, a little quaint, central with plenty of parking. Bistro had a good menu and choices.
We both ordered schnitzels, mine was great. It was hot, large and good amount of chips.
Sadly the wife's was undercooked and inedible.
But the friendly staff were very helpful & great, they actually were remorseful over the dish. Problem was solved we were happy.
As critical as I can be, I will admit this was a first for me. Never seen and undercooked one before.

I will definitely be back on my next trip down the Hume.

The rooms are a generous size and very clean and tidy. A lounge area with table and microwave/fridge. Bedroom, bathroom and toilet all separate rooms providing great privacy. Bed is comfortable. Located behind the hotel which does a good meal although not open every night. Owners are welcoming and friendly - this is relaxed country hospitality at its best. My room had the shower over the spa so access might be difficult for those with mobility issues. Overall I would definitely recommend.

We live in Tamleugh and always eat at the Pub, Fi and Brownie always make your day with their big smiles and excellent service. Meals are lovely, the steak is my husbands favourite. Love the beer garden. Highly recommend for families, groups and couples.

The person that has taken over the pub in April 2022 has changed everything.
It is now a pub with atmosphere and good pub food.
It is now a great vibrant atmosphere as a local pub with a publican that is very appreciative of your business.
Great change and give it a go !!

I stayed one night and was very glad I did. The room was quiet, clean, comfortable and had all of the necessary things - microwave, toaster, kettle, milk, tea/coffee/sugar. Sheets, towels and blankets are spotless.
Air con unit kept things toasty warm and the customer service made me feel welcome. Shops across the road make it very conveniently located. Would visit again.

Saw the "under new management" signs and thought to support them.
Really friendly, good value food and nice atmosphere.
Will come again!

Mmmm...I've had a few meals there over the years and they've generally been pretty good. Service is hot and cold. Some staff members are friendly, others just plain rude. When l rang to book the table, the woman on the other end was not at all obliging. In this latest experience, our table of 5 had meals coming out every 10 to 15 minutes or so. My pasta in the carbonara was so under cooked and pasty it was not enjoyable at all.

It has so much potential but it's pretty clear to the locals that the owner doesn't care about it. It doesn't have set open hours, as it closes whenever the staff get sick of working for the day.
It's a real pity, because the food is actually good. It will be good when it finally gets sold. Hopefully to people with some vision for the place and has the time and energy to run the joint.
