The menu is like a leprechaun, short and can hardly see it. The service is garbage. Especially at the bar.More

Questions & Answers
Hi Kate H For some reason, Tripadvisor wont l let me respond to your reply with details We came in a couple of weekends ago, based on a recommendation from a friend. We were initially let down by a tattood bar lady at the bar who seemed very rude with her service, overlooked people who were waiting, including us on multiple occasions. there were maybe 2 people at the bar at any given time that afternoon. She struggled to provide any decent level of service. Two of the women that were in our group did not get served for about 5 minutes even though they attempted to get her attention. She had passed them multiple times talking to another person at the bar. Secondly, your menu has great food, but it is very limited and does not provide for people with dietary requirements, you will forgive me for not remembering exactly what was on the menu, but i believe it was fairly restrictive and short. It would be nice if it was slightly more varied, we had a vegan, a non pork eater, a GF person in our group, and they all somewhat were limited in their options. I will say this, there were flashes of good service there, especially with the staff that were cleaning up the tables, however, even there we had a family next to us wait, and get served their food whilst some plates from the previous guests were still on the table. The plated were removed, albeit slowly. I think you have the makings of a great spot, it is a shame that upon entry, most of your guests would go to the bar, and the bar service was terrible on the day we visited. Maybe we will give it a shot again soon.

UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP: Located in the riverside village of Jugiong, The Sir George offers a unique eat, drink, bake experience in the Australian bush. Built in 1852, the historic venue has been restored to create a warm and relaxed space where old meets new ... with a restaurant, boutique bar and artisan bakery. A philosophy of simplicity and authenticity will underpin all that is The Sir George - from the menu of locally sourced Riverina produce to the beer garden that feels like your own. One minute off the Hume highway between Sydney and Melbourne, The Sir George is a place for young and old to enjoy a great coffee, a cold brew or a memorable meal by the Murrumbidgee. A good old fashioned country pub that will exceed your expectations.
