Railway Hotel Pakenham, Pakenham

Visit Railway Hotel Pakenham in Pakenham, Victoria. They have an average rating of 4.3 out of 754 reviews, with the latest ratings ranging from 1 to 5. Overall, it appears that the reviews are a bit mixed.
Wish there was more stars I could rate them, but I guess 5 will have to do. Amazing outdoor section, with private ",booths" with the ability to control heating in each individually. I predict that all the regulars will welcome Francis and his team with open arms. Heard that the Head Chef Colin, is pretty good too. Just from a few people.

The young man who served our table was fantastic,friendly,efficient. The meals are tasty but well overpriced for pub food. The venue is load and echoes, doesn't really have a vibe. Music would be a nice addition

The Railway Hotel has a great range of tap beers including Canadian Club on tap which is excellent btw! Great venue with superb live entertainment last night by AMA BAND the place was rocking and plenty of "one more song" requests were had ???? ??????????

Beautifully renovated pub with it's old school charm, and new sports bar.

Staff were amazing, helpful and friendly.

Menu was not as extensive as hoped, but the food was cooked beautifully.

Meals were quite large, but the price reflects this.

Overall a great family night out, and we are looking forward to some nice weather to get back into the beer garden!

Not overly impressed with the fact that the second we walked in the door, even though greeted well, had issues with just my partners drink alone. Couldn't find the listing of a drink they had on tap on the system, spent 15min watching the server walk back and forth asking for help to receive none that actually helped, so just put 'something else on the system just to pay'. Then to follow have his drink half poured and the tap fail, being told "It's the keg we'll change it over" followed with "We're having issues with the keg, we'll bring it out to you shortly", followed by another 5min (now waiting 20min for 1 schooner), "Sorry, we can't get it to work, can we get you something else". My partner was not interested and then was essentially pressured into getting another drink, when you offer nothing of his interest, your own staff don't even know what drinks you provide, so when he asked for Toohey's another 2min wasted to find out if you serve it, to then be given options and told 'Well you've already paid for it, so what would you like?' Despite him constantly saying he wasn't interested. Eventually he gave in and just got another drink, when that drink arrived, while seated directly under the TV, the audio was turned on the TV with no notice or a reasonable volume, so my partner then had to ask them to turn it off so we could have a conversation (Which at the end of the night was being palmed off blaming the pub side being rowdy, which the issues was the speakers, not the pub side or other customers). We placed our food order, received our entree, which was quite nice, slightly under flavoured but we enjoyed it. Then the server took our plates, and my partners cutlery away, when I tried asking for a new set, the server just walked off and ignored me, didn't offer to bring a new set when she took the old set either. I ended up having to ask another server if they could bring us one. Our meals then arrived, I ordered a $52 steak, medium rare. It was brought out medium rare on the outside 1cm in and well-done the rest of the way through, we sent it back asking for it to be made medium rare, which we waited for anither 15min for it to be brought out again, leaving my partner picking at his food on his own, and mine being received again, incorrectly cooked, this time it was medium rare 1cm in, and the rest was cooked blue. At this point we were both put off our meals. The manager who originally sorted my meal said "If there are any further issues, let me know", so I asked the server to grab him, which we never ended up seeing him, just relayed through the server. Reservation was at 8pm, walked in at 7.45pm, and walked out hungry at 8.38pm. Paid for what we ate, service was hit and miss, meals need a lot more improvement. Regardless of a new establishment, a qualified chef knows how to cook, cooking a steak 2 different ways, twice, has me absolutely dumbfounded.

Honestly, despite the efforts in majority of customer service, I won't be coming back, none of our family or friends will be, and we are telling people our experience who are also disgraced and would have left sooner than we did, but I tried to give the place benefit of doubt. Now questioning why I bothered.

Nice place for inside or outside dinning with normal prices. Good menu to choose from with ordering drinks and food from the bar. Had the stockman rump and was the most boring plate I've ever seen just a slab of meat with chips, salad extra $2 in a very small bowl. Recommend the Korean BBQ beaf salad.

We had a lovely night out here tonight. I've been here a few times before and never been disappointed, tonight was no exception. The food came out promptly and was nice and hot. It tasted amazing, we had the Korean rice bowl, the Char Sui rice bowl and the seafood hot pot. Meals were all very generous and well priced too! Cannot speak highly enough of this place!

Great food and extremely good service when, totally unexpected, my friends and I were given a round of free drinks because in the opinion of the staff, we had to wait an overly long time for our meal. Now that's service 🤩

Me and my family had dinner here tonight and the food was so tasty. The lady at the counter seemed new and she was so lovely and patient with us. Would highly recommend this place for a good meal and prompt customer service.

Went out for mothers day and the service was actually really nice and good, though they forgot to mention where to order. I had ordered the Spaghetti Pescatore which was amazing, plenty of flavour and plenty of seafood varieties. Would go back again without a doubt. Everyone else's meals were great too.

Staff were friendly and helpful Meals were good quality and a reasonably sized, great to see that they didn't just fill the plate with chips. Meals are a reasonble price for pub meals. Also liked that there were daily specials on offer.

We had been to the Drake before and the service was good, food also. Unfortunately our last visit was extremely disappointing.Table service only, which is okay if they actually come to the table. Tried to get someone's attention for another drink, to no avail. Meals were quite disappointing, and only came to the table after we had finished our meal to ask how everything was, but they were not that interested in a complaint about service, or lack of service as it was. Staff stood around talking mostly and ignored all patrons, only went to the table to collect plates after everyone had finished meals. Obviously. don't want to be there. Try to support local businesses , We won't be supporting this one anymore. Need to get your act together if you want to survive.

The Drake has had a recent upgrade and now has more open spaces for patrons to enjoy. The food here has always been good. Prices have increased and sometimes the seniors option is not as cheap as the mains with a senior's discount of 10%, so do your math before ordering if you are a senior. Service is always good and the meals generous and delicious. Can thoroughly recommend this hotel for a good meal. Enjoy

T'was a glorious night at the Tavern owned by Drake. We were mistakenly lead here thinking the singer/songwriter Drake owned this restaurant however despite our shortcomings, we had a wonderful visit with the Team-Squad. The bar-tress encouraged lemon and green lemons in my Pepsi Max, it was exquisitely zesty. We will return with more members of our Team-Squad for more fun filled giggle memories and hopefully to try the high spoken of beer. Recommended.Child friendly, as per photos:

Main meal could have been hotter, but overall it was yummy. The reverb looks great and refreshing.
