Spacious, clean, good for families. Service at the counter was friendly. Food was okay- typical pub food! Nothing fancy. And the kids ice cream that came with their meals was tiny tubs of Bulla which was nice.

A gem of a spot. Lots of seating, great drinks, decent food and good atmosphere. It's everything you'd want in a pub! ?

We visited on a Friday night, so it was very busy and the bar wasn't doing cocktails, but we were still able to nab a seat in one of the beautiful rooms. There is also seating outdoors and in a newer room off the kitchen.

Solid food, happy with the veggie options. Great chips, maybe pass on the fried cauliflower.

Had a great time and will absolutely be coming back next time we're through.

Good couple of nights here. Food is decent, aside from the calamari we had for lunch (pretty average). All other meals were fantastic, good options, nice people, good brews. Karaoke night is lit, and the family atmosphere for lunches during the weekend daytime is excellent. Highly recommend!

My family and I came here on Easter Sunday, place was crowded (as you'd expect on a public holiday) and the food was delicious! We especially loved the BBQ pork ribs, it was slow cooked to perfection and super tender ? Wagyu Rump was great too. Needless to say we finished everything on the table hehe.
The place itself has been around for hundreds of years and has a cosy homely feel to it. Indoor seating is limited but there's plenty of outdoor seating with the bonus of a live band! Speed of service was pretty fast considering the number of customers, you can see how hectic the kitchen is yet everything moved along smoothly - shoutout to the kitchen staff for being awesome! I think the only thing they can improve on is the lack of non-dairy alternatives for coffee.
All in all, amazing food and views at reasonable prices ? I would definitely visit again the next time I come to Kangaroo Valley ??'?

The kitchen was too busy that they mixed up our orders. Ordered steak with mash and chips but ended up getting only chips and salad. They forgot the mushroom sauce that we ordered as well. Food is average.

The outside area is really nice on a warm day - live music was on which was also a great addition. When it comes to food, vegan options on the menu are tasty but definitely not worth its price - asian salad especially. Portions are small snd not fulfilling. Wouldn't recommend eating here if you're vegan but drinks and atmosphere is great.

Great interior design keeping the original building and interior design. Amazing display of vintage early 1900 memorabilia and decor.

The food was a bit on the pricey end in comparison to the smaller cafes and restaurants nearby. The portions were huge though.
Delicious pub style food. Bar on one side and the restaurant on the other.

Absolutely disgusting place, we were coming through Kangaroo Valley during the night so we decided to stop for food but what we found was beyond a shock.. The tables were dirty - we watched someone else leave, someone working there picked up their plate and didn't wipe the tables down, super unhygienic.

We ordered food, the table we were placed at had dirt on it, absolutely disgusting, we ordered food off the menu and WITHOUT any sign or notices, we were told there's a 10% surcharge for weekends... Never have i ever seen this in my life even in Coffs Harbour down to Eden and we travel alot of places on the coast for work.

Food came out and it was a bit average and the fish tasted like cardboard but digging through the salads we found super old lettuce that was BLACK AND ROTTEN!,(Got a photo before some worker started staring at us looked like he was about to threaten/intimidate us) Proof they don't wash their containers at all - this place is a disappointment and really disgusting. Nothing is CLEAN.

A group of 6 of us came here on Sunday afternoon, after visiting the Farmers Markets. The hotel is well maintained and staff are friendly. The food which I ordered, and was recommended and on the special menu was a bit disappointing. Pasta was overcooked and the corn tempura lacked the batter to make it more like a fritter. The chips though was okay, but gravy was a bit watery. However, my friend's steak sandwich was cooked well. Portions were generous and there's a live band at the back. Not bad for dropping by. However I'll recommend to try to more classic pub foods.

Visited on a Thursday night for dinner around 8pm, plenty of tables available and food came out quickly. Service was very friendly and the decor is warm and inviting. The food itself was wonderful - the beef nachos were absolutely perfect and the special of the day, an Indian style lamb soup was exquisite love in a bowl.

What a great pub to visit if you are in the Valley.
Very interesting indoors and wide open fresh outdoor big space. Food also very nice.

The food is nice (nothing to rave about), we had the salmon & the barramundi. They were both nice but could have been much better. The inside of the pub is nice too but the outside dining out the back is tired, old, dusty & dirty. It's a real shame as it looks like it used to be lovely - but now it looks neglected sadly.

Amazing pub, unsurprisingly popular with the locals! Gets very busy at peak times of the weekend with people from far and wide, so it's worth booking. Huge outdoor areas, perfect for kids & also did friendly.
Comes with plenty of character and the staff are very friendly.
The menu is full of pub classics & the food is delicious. What's not to like!!

Great little pub. Good food, beers are cold. Plenty of room for the kids and dog friendly. 😁

Great country pub, busy on a public holiday but enough space to cater the masses with both indoor and outdoor dining. Extensive menu with great options for all with additional specials.
Ordered the ribs from the special and didn't disappoint, although very busy didn't wait longer than 30mins for food. Good to see a venue running seamlessly.
The winner is the outdoor playground and barrel rolling which the kids loved, parents more so as they were entertained whilst we had an extra drink.
Good work

Nice pub with lots of eating spaces, indoor and out. Love the high tables in the near area made of tree slabs with quirky Old chairs modify to suit. Plenty of parking. Great food with vegan and vegetarian choices. I can definitely recommend the vegan curry. Medium prices. Huge picture windows across the back. Bathrooms are clean. Sports area is currently a marquee with wood heaters. This is easily accessible but the rest of the pub may be more problematic. Call ahead to discuss.

Coming here on Mother's Day it was great to see the inn packed. The service was great, the food came within good time, and tasted beautiful. The atmosphere and live music topped this venue off as a great way to spend a Sunday lunch.

We ate here on a Friday night with a decent size group of 12. Pub was packed and the food was delicious, fast to be ready (which is fantastic with kids!!!) and good size meals. Probably on the slightly pricier side, but it was good food and lovely service! Plus, the only pub in town! Would definitely return!!!
