Unfortunately, we decided to go to the Union Hotel for lunch. We went into the back dining room which had a table of six people seated, along with two other tables of two patrons. There were patrons in other rooms of the hotel having their meals.

We sat down to look at their menu for a while. At that stage, we didn't mind waiting to be acknowledged at our unset table and for our order to be taken. We did, however, observe a couple arrive just after us who sat at another unset table. It appeared they were not impressed with their fairly lengthy wait/lack of service as they got up and left .

After about 20 minutes of watching neighbouring tables having their orders taken, we thought it was time for our patronage to be acknowledged. We smiled at the mature-aged waitress so our order could be taken.

"Yep, what do you want?" was her "greeting". We were somewhat taken aback with her abruptness and apparent inability to smile. We ordered our meals and she left. In contrast, I bought drinks from a bar person who was welcoming and friendly.

Nearly one hour later, with our table still not set (the other tables were), we decided to leave as some of the patrons before us were still waiting for their meals. Who knows how much longer they had to wait before it was our turn? If we were advised there was going to be a long wait, we could have decided at the time of ordering whether stay or go.

As we were leaving, I spoke with a man (manager/owner?) who appeared to be in charge to request for our meals be canceled. He asked why. In fairness to him, the man seemed genuinely concerned about our experience, asking for additional details. I believe he would have followed this up with the relevant waitress after we left.

Sad that the hotel lost two tables of patrons that day.

We stopped for a late lunch during a day trip, and ...
+ the food was outstanding
+ the calamari was perfect. It was better than delicious - the texture was just right - chef got it absolutely perfect
+ they did a great job of matching a wine to the calamari

Very happy - I will return

Not cheap but really nice inside and excellent staff with great service. Was in on a Wednesday night after I went into both pubs in Heathcote looking for somewhere to have dinner that night. Choose the Union Hotel as the staff were nicer, more friendly and inviting, and the parking was better. Had the $25 Parmy and a Pot special, and it was very tasty but not as large as I expected for that price. You can tell it is a popular venue, as even on a Wednesday night, it was busy with locals coming in for dinner and drinks, and the staff seemed to know everybody by name. Really nice outdoor but undercover area with a really nice pool table and a second smoking area undercover with a park bench and electric bar heater. Fairly small car park but there is street parking too. No happy hour and $8.50 schooners of beer with a limited selection, which is on the high end of the price scale. They were running out their stock of Iron Jack mid strength stubbies for $4, but don't expect them to last long. Overall, it was a nice pub with excellent staff, nice food, and reasonable value.

My parents and I usually eat there once every few months. She's coeliac. Normally a standard pub meal.
Unfortunately, she was served a meal yesterday that was the only GF option on the menu and was made incredibly sick from it. Yes, it was specified at the time of ordering. Yes, she almost gets admitted to hospital after contamination. We won't be back as we can no longer trust the food.

This is an old pub that needs to be rejuvenated on the exterior, for it looks like it is closed and has been for some time.
However, venturing inside and sitting down to order was a pleasant surprise. To top it off, the food we ordered was good too.
We did not get anything to drink here but was observation was that there is limited choice for on tap beer, still there was choice though.

Come in and try it for yourselves.
You will not be disappointed.

Great Pub food, excellent selection of Heathcote wines, extremely reasonable prices, friendly and attentive staff, the beer is amazingly cold too!!
...
for these reasons we continue coming back to The Union Hotel. It's worth noting that it's also the only place open for meals in town on a Monday.

We sat in the outside area & ordered a steak. Extremely disappointing as it was not chewable, the so called mashed potato had no taste. Our dog ended up getting a $33.00 steak and he even struggled to chew it. I would recommend the hotel employing someone who can cook. Definitely would not go back to eat here.

Efficient and friendly service saw our large group of hungry cyclists fed in no time. Decent, fresh meals with plenty of salad or veg on the side. Add cold beer. Happiness is a country pub like this. Book ahead, its not huge.

Eggplant parma was absolutely fantastic. All food and drinks were great. Classic beers on tap plus the local brewery which is absolutely worth a try if you like craft beers. Staff very friendly. Very local vibe and sport on the TV.
