Oh my gosh!! The fish and chips are amazing. The fish is so fresh it must have been pulled out of the water this morning. Also great chips, with beautifully seasoned vegetables - perfectly cooked.
The service is friendly and welcoming and the bistro is a warm oasis on a cold winter's day.
I can't wait to come back!! Thanks for a lovely lunch ??'??

Bad quality, excessive price... My mouth is irritated and full of canker sores... I thought they had made a mistake with the size of the pizza, $33 for a large one which looked more like a small. A barbecue sauce that stings, never seen before.

Had a meal and a few frothies. Was a very busy night at the time but the meals were still delicious and served reasonably quickly. Prices were typical pub prices. Worth a visit

We had dinner here for about 12 people. Good service. Good meals and child friendly. Nearby Fish Creek is also a great place to visit with nice cafes and a vibrant local art community.

Second time this week at the exchange hotel with the roast of the day (pork). They cater for both gluten free and dairy intolerances without issue. The staff are so helpful. Won't hesitate to stop here again next time down at the Prom. Served even before the order counter was open. Portion size great, and hospitality provided with a smile and professionalism. Great job guys. Will be returning.

Ordered a chicken schnitzel....beautiful schnitzel without the trimmings. Chips weren't fresh and no gravy. Paid extra for gravy $3 that didn't cover the meal so requested more gravy and told it would cost another $3! That would bring the meal to $31...no salad by the way just coleslaw....felt ripped off

Lovely dinner.
We didn't book but they were able to fit us in on a busy Saturday night which was great.
Attentive staff. Meals arrived quickly.
Well worth a visit.

If I could award no stars I would, but had to award at least one in order to post this review. Worst pub meal I've ever had in my life, anywhere in the world. The vegetables were cold and undercooked, fish was advertised as local fresh flathead but obviously frozen. Appalling presentation and quality, considering we were charged $34 for the dish. Very disappointing.

We came here for dinner while exploring the area during the day. To say it was a typical pub is doing it a bit of a disservice. Foster Exchange Hotel is quite large and welcoming.

On a pretty cold early winter night, there was a fire place cracking away in the main room. Our food was very generous, standard pub fare with a few surprises. There was a bit of a wait, but not too long.

We left feeling very full and much warmed up. Would definitely go back there if we were in Foster visiting.

Didn't stay in the rooms but we did visit the restaurant section.

Receptionist and bar tenders are friendly and accommodating. Someone in my group had a sore throat and the staff was kind enough to make sure she was sorted and comfortable.

Absolutely disgusting service, management and food. Our meals took over an hour and half to come out, the staff lacked communication on the delay and didn't have the courtesy to tell us what meals they couldn't provide us until we started to question where our meals are. It was also reported that they only had apprentice chefs on, with no management to the restaurant.
Our meals came out incorrect and at extreme disappointing quality.

Tradicional family restaurant with American style food. The food here is big portions and heavy.
Actually I think the white sauce pasta is too heavy for me but the seafood was very fresh.
The pizza ? is a heavy and thick if you like cheese maybe you can try it.
The parma is heavy too.
The moose is not recommended because is just full cream.
The atmosphere was really good!

STAY AWAY FROM THE CHOC MINT CHEESECAKE!

Great service, very fast and friendly staff. We dined at this place a few times. Main course are pretty good. Foods come in big portions, tasty, and reasonable price. The only disappointment is the choc mint cheesecake served with 2 rotten strawberries, very weird taste, and textures making us feel like eating toothpaste.

Today, i.e. Saturday 10th of December, 22, @ 5.30 pm, went for dinner with my husband & a friend. I went in first and asked for a table for 3. The lady refused my request and told me that all tables were booked. My husband was in the toilet, and our friend was quite a distance away from me. Along came our friend and asked for a table, the lady without hesitation allotted him a table without booking, not aware that I was his friend. I was shocked at the discrimination that was shown by this women. She refused me because I am Indian and coloured. This is racism. My husband and his friend are Australians. Anyway, we sat there for more than an hour and to our surprise, 12 tables were still empty. Very shocking and a disgrace . We ordered for grilled fish , a full plate had two tiny strips of fish.

Food was decent, however found the prices to be quite expensive for the amounts received. Service was adequate, however lacked polish and finesse. Average experience and no expectation to recommend or visit again. Fish creek is the place to go if you are expecting a decent dining experience, particularly in a larger group.

Country Pub with No Roast of the Day! ? Atmosphere good. Staff good. Vegetables could have been cooked longer. Cabanara pasta to much onions.

The staff was helpful and kind. The food was a lot better than expected, especially for pub food. The atmosphere was fine and the hotel had some interesting history. Definitely worth a try when visiting foster and it's surroundings.

Haven't even got our food yet. Been 50 minutes. Told it'll be another 10. Paid up front without any indication it would take this long, so now it's too late to argue the bill or go to another venue.

100% painted in to a corner of accepting horrible service due to the set up and running of this pub. Here on holiday for another 6 days and was excited to visit again, but it's now lost our business completely for the week.

Staff are easy to find if you pay them more, and more people will visit if you don't make them wait an hour for food because you have more staff. Business 101.

Do better.

Food coma alert!! Pub food done well - we ordered gluten free prawn spaghetti and a linguine carbonara finished off with a gluten free sticky date pudding. Loved all of it and the service was amaze. Didn't expect a pub meal to wow us like this!!

Stopped over in Foster while on holiday and ended up here for dinner. Was surprised on the size and quality of food. The spicy pizza was excellent and the kids pasta and chicken were cooked well. Friendly and helpful staff made the experience well worth going again.

Please take a look at the photo. We basically left the food as it was served and when back home for instant noodles.... Need I say more? This is what gives pub food a bad credit. What's going on, where are the good old days where you can rely on a nice cooked meal at the pub?

Great place to have dinner/late lunch, food portions were a good size, food was delicious. I had the feta and pumpkin pasta, honestly 10/10!! Absolutely will come back in the future. Great staff as well, super friendly and efficient. Great job to the owners and staff! ??
