Despite having fantastic food for many years, there has been a serious decline of late. Pizza is still good but not as amazing as it used to be. Our expensive salad was a mountain of under ripe tomato, a piddling amount of roughly chopped mozzarella, (which used to be soft and pillow light bocconcini) and a miniscule amount of basil. Totally underwhelming. Can't imagine any chef worth his salt letting that go out. Even when it was returned hardly touched nobody bothered to ask why. Our plates remained on the table for over half an hour, preventing us from having the opportunity to compain and was eventually cleaned up by, wait for it, the covid monitor only minutes before closing. I live here and won't be going back in a hurry for an expensive, overrated pub meal.

We ordered pizzas then tried to find a table to sit at. Although it wasn’t busy, all the empty tables had reserved signs on them, for later in the day. When a table became empty, we sat there, only to be told that the table had just become booked. The whole place was now empty, with all the tables “reserved”. The waiter then begrudgingly said we could stay, but we had to move to another table, so he could set up our table for a booking two hours later. Couldn’t believe the woeful service. We quickly ate our pizzas and left - with the rest of the place still empty.

Stayed overnight on our way to the Snowy Mountains. Clean, comfortable and well appointed. Good sized family room with a QS + single and a sofa bed. Fairly quiet location. Extras in the room like crockery/cutlery and a microwave are a great addition when having dinner in room from a local takeaway.
