The new renovation gives the place a chill relaxing vibe. Plenty of beers and cocktails available for selection which was nice. Menu is small and I was a little skeptical at a mushroom dish in the pub classics, but I'm always willing to give things a try. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and taste of the food. We all had something different and they nailed every dish. Prices are on par with other similar style pubs in the area. Staff were also very friendly. This place used to be pretty low on my list of recommendations for Maitland pubs and my brother had to really sell it to me to come here for dinner, but I'm glad he persisted as I can confidently say the food and service has changed my mind on coming back here and I'll definitely be looking to bring my friends back soon.

We really enjoyed our visit for dinner. Lovely staff. Nice relaxed vibe out on the balcony. We ordered 3 burgers and a kids nuggets and fries. Burgers were great tasting and were a good size. My son is a chicken nuggets fiend and these passed the test with flying colours. I had a couple of delicious purple gins - elderflower I think it was. My husband enjoyed his dark ale. Great place, we will be back.

We booked a night here on our roadtrip up north travelling with our 2yo. From the warm hospitality, the complimentary welcome drink, and great atmosphere we knew we landed in the right place. The hotel has Incredible old world charm tastefully decorated and was exceptional value for money. Definitely not a bland, modern hotel thankfully, an increasingly rare find these days. Highly recommend for anyone who appreciates an historic space beautifully remodelled that's run by a fantastic couple.

Incredible atmosphere! The decor is eclectic yet well crafted. The wall of cultural icons, the mid century furniture, the incredible wine & food menu; This is seriously a place of culture! Whether you want to indulge in delicious food & beverages, or have a lil boogie on the dance floor this place has you covered. The staff are always super friendly, always up for a chat and are in general a total vibe.
This is a step in the right direction for Maitland. Keep up the great work

I have driven past the family hotel for a few years and always wanted too try it.
Can honestly say it is awesome.
I got the brisket burger and it was F-ing amazing, I'm a truck driver and go all across the country and I can confirm it was one of the best I've ever had.

Amazing service and very nice staff that have a great chat, swing in and support the locals having a go it's well worth your time and money.

We visited today for lunch, ahead of the Culture Club official opening this evening.

As was the case with Coquun, the place is full of genuine and aesthetically considered culture (the name Culture Club, makes a lot of sense).

We enjoyed a selection of local beverages, and some delicious buttys and look forward to returning to try more of the delicious items on the menu.

Location, location , stayed here as I needed to travel to the New Maitland hospital, - the room were clean and the bed are comfortable. A fairly affordable price for a above the pub accommodation & most liveable pub stay compare to some I have been to in the past, clean share shower. Effortless contact - when I needed to stayed another night, it was easily arrange without hassle. Easy checked in and checked out.
As the hotel were being renovated, I didn't get to dine at the hotel. Planning to go back there for lunch and dinner sometime soon.

Dan and Leah have done it again. Their brand that everybody loves is now at the family. The work they've put into styling is huge and the results are awesome. The food was awesome and the craft beers on tap were great. This space makes sense for a regular visit for lunch, dinner and drop in drinks ??

Had a beautifully cooked steak here last week. Great service and craft beer offering too. The fit out by the new operators looks amazing ?
We will definitely be back ?

Just kinda meh guys. The food was subpar, it seemed like it was old stock, the meat was dry and the chips tasted like they had been sitting there for a while. The bar attender was texting instead of serving customers. He was polite but it didn't seem like the right priority. I would rush back.

We had a delicious Mother's Day lunch at Rudy's Low N' Slow BBQ, it was absolutely beautiful, the meat was cooked to perfection and the corn bread was to die for.. highly recommend!

First time to here, never come back again. The food is delicious, but the waiter seem rather ignorant, after he served the food to us, he ran to the bar and stood there, even not busy. He thinks ribs are eaten with hands and torn by hand. He thinks we wipe our mouths and hands with our clothes.

I had such high hope but sadly, it wasn't great. It took over 50 mins for our food to arrive and we were there right on midday with only a handful of patrons there. When you have 3 small children, you need to have it come out quicker.

I had the Korean chicken burger which was really tasty but the chicken was difficult to eat and fell out everywhere. My son's chicken piece was over cooked and he couldn't chew it.

The kids' hot dog and burger was an excellent portion though and they both loved it.

Just needs to quicken up the kitchen or give us warning it was going to take that long.

I really want to give five starts as the food and drinks were awesome but the lack of aircon made a bit less than pleasant experience. We did go there on a hot day but still it was way too warm inside. It didn't seem like air-conditioning was working at all. Appart from that the venue is nice, staff are friendly and food tasted great.
We had the big BBQ platter and it was just the right amount of food for four people and it tasted great. We look forward to our next meal here.

I think they put crack in the cornbread - it is so good I could eat it all day! The kiddos like to come to Rudy's for special occasion meals & they like to get a platter to share. There is so much food on the platters that we always end up taking a bunch of meat home which they snack on the next day.

It is a great spot for a group gettogether but a bit too noisy for intimate meals.

The only issue I have (and the reason for only 4 stars) is it is absolutely freezing in winter & as the heating seems to be a large open fire it really needs to be lit first thing in the morning if they want a pleasant temperature by lunch.

Best food, service and drinks tonight. Took my husband and his family for dinner for his birthday and nothing was too much trouble. The bar and restaurant were amazingly helpful. The food was so fresh and cocktails were sensational. Cannot recommend this pub highly enough. Everyone had the best night.

We went to the Family Hotel today for the first time and it didn't disappoint. The pub has been beautifully renovated, great service and the food was just amazing. We had the pig out for two of delicious smoked meats and house made sauces. We will definitely be back. If you are in a car or motorbike club there is plenty oof great parking.

Came in for lunch after driving by and seeing the beer and Texas BBQ signs out the front. Haven't been since the hospital shut down and new owners bought it and they've done a great job revamping the place. American Decor, Texas style BBQ food in the restaurant and a great selection of drinks and cocktails. I reckon I've found my new favourite bar in Maitland. The service was great. We got the 2 person bbq platter which was definitely enough food once we added some wings. My only critique is the chicken and pork were a little dry, but all was tasty and I will definitely be coming back!

The food was ridiculous.
Ridiculously amazing. The burger was perfectly cooked, the fries were definitely loaded and the cocktails were delicious. Mrs Review and I spent as much time and money as we could stuffing ourselves just to experience everything.

One piece of feedback is the burger menu doesn't clearly note that it comes with a sizeable serving of fries so we ordered another loaded fries. The server indicated that a lot of people seem to do that, too. This resulted in us leaving quite a lot of food left over.

Can't wait to come back.

Absolutely love this place!
We are locals and only rediscovered this place a few weeks ago. We had been in the past, but that was before Rudy's restaurant had arrived. We had a great experience here with our six kids and knew we would return.
Saturday night, we had two other families visiting and our dinner plans fell through, so I recommended we all go to Rudy's. They did not disappoint. When I called and asked if they could accommodate 15 people in the next half an hour, they didn't hesitate, "I can make that work," I was told. We arrived to be greated by the man who took my booking and shown to our table they had organised for us. The service was fast and friendly, and the food, once again, was delicious. The menu is fantastic with many options and some great daily specials. The price is quite reasonable and the serving sizes are huge. Speaking of serving sizes, I took on the burger challenge and, just managed to finish in time to make the wall of fame.
We will definitely be returning as it is not often we can find a place that can leave my wife, my daughter, my five sons and myself completed satisfied and delighted with our experience.

The good stuff: The place is nice, staff are friendly, menu selection and drinks selection are good. The brisket was spot on.

The not so good stuff: They were overwhelmed even with just a few customers. Our food took forever and our plates came out miles apart from each other, meaning we had to start eating without each other (they did provide a free round of drinks and apologise). The fries were burnt and crunchy as hell, hardly ate any of them. The kids chicken had a funny taste (we had four separate plates all up and tried them all) had a funny taste and none of the kids liked it. Maybe a simpler kids menu would be a good idea.

After looking up somewhere in Maitland that would be serving at 3pm yesterday, we came across this place. After pulling up we weren't sure because it looked quiet. But WOW. Such a great venue with awesome food, big portions and reasonable price. 4 adults and 3 kids all happy and relaxed. The guy behind the bar was great too. Kids loved watching the footy while they ate. We are from Newcastle and will definitely be going out of our way to go back here again!!!

Stumbled across this place and decided to have a late lunch......best fish and chips ever๐Ÿ'๐Ÿ' Nice and clean....open fire was a lovely addition. Only criticism a little clinical in its makeover, needs softening, white walls too stark.

Ordered our meal at 12.55. There was only one other table of 8 in the place and they received their food as we ordered. Ordered two starters. One came 25 minutes later after 45 minutes at 1.40 and no one else in the place I asked where the meals were. We then received two kids meals, a bit later the other three meals. mentioned the other starter and was told that will be out shortly. Then had to see them again as they had "forgotten" to put the chicken in the chicken pasta! Food was ordinary at best. Yes we got takeaway containers- at least our dogs seemed to enjoy it!

The atmosphere was terrible, the dining room felt like we were sitting in a hospital cafeteria. The food was pretty average as well but at least the drinks were cheap even though there was a lack of selection. BUT the big issue that I had was the older male bar tender serving shots to an already intoxicated young man who was also being rude to other patrons. The bar tender also didn't know how to make a cocktail properly, even though that cocktail was on your menu. Family hotel? Hell no, very poor, place to go to for a drink and some dinner. I will not be returning to this establishment and neither will the people I was accompanied with.
