The meals looked great and were cheap, but were lacking in taste, steak with garlic butter was served on a wooden chopping board so by the time it got to the table the butter was all over the floor and the table. Coleslaw was the worst thing i have ever eaten in my life. The bar was very loud not... More

My partner and I visited Cableways on Saturday for a quick lunch, we have eaten here a few times before but normally for dinners. I ordered the bacon and egg melt on ciabatta, and my partner ordered the beef burger. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals and were a good size - both of us left full. The meals... More

Recently took my father out for his 97th birthday - all he wanted was a 'decent steak'. Unfortunately the lunch menu did not offer a steak but after speaking with the staff, they organised a ribeye from their dinner menu and tailored the meal to suit Dad. Just great service and all done with a smile.

My wife & I stayed at Aaron Lodge Park and walked the 800 odd metres up the road mid afternoon to see what it was like and to decide if we should eat there. Immediately we made a booking to eat there that night. Ambience is great, service is even better! Young lady and young bloke who looked after us... More

Was impressed with the size and quality of the meals here. Very reasonably priced and left full and not hungry. Would definately come back here.

This was just what we were looking for in a Sunday lunch; decent portions at a very reasonable price, and a cosy old-fashioned pub atmosphere. The roast chicken special was quite nice, and my partner liked the beef burger - the drinks were a bargain too, $3 for a beer! We rounded it all off with a really delicious chocolate-orange... More

My partner and I stopped in at the Cableways Tavern lounge bar for a mid-afternoon refreshment last Sunday (25 October 2015). The surrounds are pleasant enough; the theme is Olde Worlde Tram Car, apparently due to a tram line which used to run through that area. The service, however, was appallingly bad. We stood at the unstaffed bar for close... More
