We were looking for somewhere out of the sun to have lunch and came across this pub on our tour around the valley. The service was helpful and drinks were quick. The seafood was fresh and well worth the $50 for the hot and cold food

Love this pub, has lots of character. cute little eating tables in and around the pub. Big covered outside area. Cosy and warm in winter. Great menu with a large choice. Plenty of parking spaces. Next to the Hunter Valley Gardens.

We only had dinner which was quite good reasonably prices and the service was good too. Clean neat and tidy was cosy. Didn't stay in the rooms so can not comment. Is very easy to find amongst the wineries.

We stayed here for two nights, the room was comfortable with a good king size bed which we do like! The only problem which was a biggy was the pipes in the wall from the shower next door made a dreadful screaming sound that was quite unbearable the first morning at around 5:30am- we were NOT happy!... this was room...

We stayed in a standard room which was quite nice. There was plenty of room, the bed was comfortable and the shower was good. Double doors opened on to a small courtyard with nice vineyard and bush views. I thought the tariff a bit steep but everything in the area is like that. There was a slight mouldy smell in... More

A few months ago I went on an overnight trip to the Hunter Valley with 21 other Ladies. We went for wine tastings and stayed at Harrigan's Irish Pub. We had a great afternoon in the pool, then off to happy hour following with dinner. After dinner some of us met in one room and had a few drinks and... More

Harrigan's has had some bad raps at times that seem mostly centred around service. We stayed one night after our daughter's engagement dinner. The young woman on reception was great. I agree with Stephen A about the food ordering system but that's the franchise model..some other similar venues do have better ordering systems. The wine selection was reasonable and price... More

If you are heading to the Hunter Valley, Harrigan's Pub is perfect place to stay, located close to most wineries as well as the Hunter Valley Gardens. The the rooms are comfortable and clean, the,food is good, but the drink prices may be a little high for a "Pub", but you are in the Hunter valley so enjoy all that... More

Within walking distance of Pepper's Café Enzo, and the beautiful Hunter Gardens, the location cannot be matched. I hadn't been to Harrigan's for about 10 years, and it looks exactly the same as I remember it, unfortunately this means the place really needs a facelift, and clean. The 2 bedroom apartment was at the end of the complex so had... More

My partner and I stayed here for two nights. Harrigans is located in the heart of Polkolbin with many things close by to do and see. We had a large balcony where we could see kangroos lounging around, it was lovely. The room was clean and the staff freindly. Only thing I could say that requires an upgrade is the... More
