Great lively place... live music was great.. went to order our meal and was served by the most unhappy, unfriendly man at the counter in the kitchen... he clearly isn't happy in his job and should be on dishes in the kitchen!!! Not on front end serving people!!! Other than him everyone was very friendly..

They have a great location and set up but the food is a let down. I came here many times during my stay to enjoy a cold beer and watch some footy. But we ate here a few times and the staff in the kitchen were a little rude and the food as average. That being said they do have... More

Got the T bone special. Apart from it being the thinnest steak I have ever seen, it was also over cooked. It is the first steak I haven't been able to attack. There was fat, sinew and very little meat. Apart from this the chips were soggy and the gravy was just plain awful. Side salad was ok. This is... More

Free cinema in the beer garden for kids from 7pm on school holidays was a great treat. Parents can relax while children are entertained and in close proximity.

Great food at really inexpensive prices. Atmosphere was great, background music was not too loud, staff are friendly and helpful. We had a couple of meals here and the food was fantastic, we also had drinks here quite a few times

We went looking for a good place for the family to eat and found the Central Hotel perfect. The large back garden was perfect for the kids to run around in. Food was good and staff was welcoming. We will definitely go back later this holiday.

We ate dinner here twice on our holiday with our kids. Kids were so well entertained as they could play on really nice grassed area at back of hotel. Really family friendly environment. Food was great - barramundi was delicious- plentiful serving and beautifully presented with vegetables. Hubby had pizza which he was v pleased with.

We had dinner here and decided not to go back during the rest of our holiday. We ordered our food and after finding a seat to watch the footy we ended up waiting an hour for our food and was told they left off the garlic bread but offered to cook it if we wanted to pay (we weren't willing... More

Yes had a few ales and a nice feed at this grand old pub. Eat outside and watch the traffic and people go by on their way home from day tripping. Can get a bit noisy at dusk as the Rainbow parrots take to the street trees to find a night roost but great pub grub at a good price... More
