We had a Special Needs 30th at the Lower Plenty Hotel function rooms. The whole experience was so stress free. Dealing with Lane the Functions Coordinator was so painless and she was so lovely. She steered us towards appropriate menu choices etc and helped us with some great ideas. On the day Dee and the staff were fantastic. He sorted all our requirements from ladder to fixing our it issues and did it with a smile. All the staff were so accommodating and it made for a great experience.

Food choices were good. Food came out hot. The only downside side was limited gluten free and dessert party options but we were allowed to bring our own desserts so it wasn't a major issue.

Highly recommend the Lower Plenty for your functions.

By golly! I was blown away by the delicate Australian cuisine showcased at the Lower Plenty Hotel. I have visited my far share of pubs in my time, but none have stood out quite as last Friday night. The blissful balance of the chicken Caesar salad was stellar, complimented by the hero of the night, Ryan. What a charming young man. He was ever so accommodating and made sure my experience was as pleasant as possible. I will be dining again, and I recommend the Lower Plenty Hotel to any and all who desire a delicious meal and spectacular customer service.

Food was sub par but if you have kids you go for the playground. The garlic bread had almost zero garlic flavour, and the garlic prawns should be renamed cream prawns as the garlic had gone missing again. My brother in law got garlic butter with his steak and we decided that's where the garlic had gone! Only an hour into the dinner service and they were out of watermelon salad and creme brulee. Steak was verging on blue instead of rare but since we'd already sent back cold and watery mashed potato we just wanted to eat.
Service was friendly enough. And again, recommended for parents as the playground was great. Kids meals are good too.

Ordered Nachos for entree they used just an avocado dip instead of guacamole. The steak I asked for medium rare came out well. This venue has dropped big time this is the 3rd time I've came back hoping it was good like it use to be but unfortunately not.

Unfortunately the food we ordered wasn't very nice. The chicken was dry & too overcooked! There were only potatoes as the vegetables that came with it. There was too much smoked paprika that was sprinkled on the chilli yoghurt ! Plus, we asked that they not give us the chilli yoghurt, but we still got it.
The bread that came with the meal was over cooked aswell
Not a very good dish to order as you only got over cooked dry chicken & potatoes, chilli yoghurt & a few pieces of bread, and this meal was for two ppl

Food was good, but the menu choices have shrunk hugely. The prices have also increased significantly. It's hard to justify going back.

The playground and big spaces are handy with kids but it's chaos! The playground needs supervision as it can get risky for smaller kids. Food is basic pub food. Facilities have been upgraded so toilets etc are good.

We haven't been here for a long time. Thought we'd give it a try. Big mistake. Chips were cold and tough. Replacement chips were hot and tough. Worst Caesar salad ever. Meals came nearly 10 minutes apart after asking for them again. Coffee request was ignored and had to go back to be done again. Won't be back for a while!!

The food used to be good, but serving sizes are tiny since they changed the menu especially the salmon dish. Not much of a variety on the menu anymore either.

Good size meals, comes out quickly if not super busy. There's a huge play are for kids at the end of dinning area. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Try not to sit near the entrance area as it's very cold when the doors open 'winter' otherwise we love it in here.

We visit the Lower Plenty pretty regularly. Great place to go for dinner with the kids because of the playground. Price is competitive with other pubs in the area and the food is good. The bistro is nice although tables are a little close together. Service is always friendly.

I came with 3 family members, one who has frequented the hotel in the past recommended the steak. I decided on the pork spareribs whilst the others chose the steak. Whilst apparently the steaks were very good according to the others, my spareribs were lousy. They were dry and completely tasteless, and the marinade (if that's what it was) appeared to have been wiped on before the ribs were cooked. No complaints about the rest of the meal or the dining experience as a whole, but the signature dish of your dining experience should be something memorable for the right reasons, not these.

Came here last night for dinner and ordered the chicken schnitzel the meal was pretty pathetic, low quality and the salad was old.
The chips not bad. I understand its pub food but I have had 10x better at other pubs that I won't name.
On a good note I won my money back on the pokies so I'm not that bothered.

Our family lunch was spectacular. An amazing variety of quality food, coupled with an incredible customer experience really made for a memorable day.

Highly recommend

Had lunch today on the terrace. Nice venue and the staff were really nice. My partners meal was OK. But the fish and chips were disgusting, cold, tasteless and soggy. I did mention to the waiter that the meal was awful. He just shrugged and said he would let the kitchen know. I left most of my meal untouched. My partner's schooner of beer and lipstick stains on it , when he mentioned it to the staff they told him the wine glasses were worse Definitely do not recommend!!!

My son's favourite spot to get together with family and friends was the Lower Plenty Hotel, so we held his birthday celebration there with his classmates. Staff members were professional, skilled, and patient. 15 kids were really loud, but the staff was very friendly. however, the staff was always on hand to help . pretty pleasant experience Many thanks.

We had my son Jayson's Ist Anniversary Memorial function at the Lower Plenty Hotel because it was my son's favourite place to meet up with family and friends. Manager Jack booked and organised the function with me and he was very informative, experienced and patient. We were in the River Bridge Room which also had access to a private bar and the outdoor terrace. We had about 60 people and it felt roomy especially because we had the choice to go outside (great for these Covid conditions). My guest were very well looked after by super friendly staff. D was the wonderful manager on the day and all the wait and bar staff were polite and helpful. The food was perfect and as a real foodie and cook myself I had no need to worry. The chef is professional and experienced with large functions. His advice on menu choices and quantity was spot on, otherwise I would have spent a lot more money on food and it would have gone to waste.
I will be definitely be doing more functions here in the future. It was just so easy.
So a big huge THANK YOU to Jack, D and the crew at the Lower
You're all doing a great job and I will be back.

Food was ok at best. What you would expect from an RSL. Almost no vege options though. Good for families with kids as there's a play centre attached to the dining area.

No Splitting Bill.
We have been visiting the Lower as locals for at least 30 odd years since the days of the ball pit. We recently had a party of 35 people, my poor Dad had to foot the food & drinks bill for everyone. Yes some were able to fix him up. Other's didn't get the opportunity. This system is absolutely rediculous. We will sadly no longer travel back to visit the Lower & it's awesome playground unless this system changes. Many other businesses can work it out. Such a shame. Put a damper on what could have been a wonderful afternoon.

Nice place set in a native environment. Meals aren't cheap for a pub. Love the beer garden on a sunny day and Melbourne cup day is huge here ??'??

Called up to check availability for dinner and was told not to worry about booking as a walk in will be fine for the function room or terrace bar. Arrived and was told by the Covid Marshall that everywhere was at capacity. Terrible experience and a total waste of our time, won't be returning.

(January 2021)1st time dining at the terrace bar. Lovely views. Bar staff were friendly & professional. I had the southern fried chicken burger- it was delish!Does The Lower allow dogs at the terrace bar? Id love to go back in the future.

Visited Lower Plenty Hotel multiple times. Always a good time! Harder to get a booking lately due to number restrictions, completely understand that is out of venues hand.

Great place to take active kids... the playground is amazing! You won't see them except for dinner. The staff are friendly and make a point if bringing out the kids meals first so kids are fed and adults can talk!

Sitting on the Terrace, in the mottled sunshine with a cold beverage & tasty food. Could (almost) be 'normal'!Great afternoon spent catching up with family at a relaxed, funky pub.
