Visited for a monthly catch up with friends last night and quite enjoyed the atmosphere of the Mary Ellen. Meal sizes were good and prices were resonable. Menu choices are standard pub meals, although specials board was a little light on. Everyone was more than happy with their meals, which came out really fast. The eating was fairly noisy and...

My adult daughter suggested we go to the Mary Ellen for a quick evening meal. It was over 35 Celsius outside and a cool beer hit the spot. We also enjoyed our schnitzels - one pork the other chicken.

Very handy location to Merewether hotel. Staff were attentive and not over the top. Food was delicious steak, oysters and very generous chicken salad. Kids meals were value for money. 1000 beers on tap. Will be back.

Popped in for a late lunch and ordered the Punkin Risotto. Decently priced and wonderful flavours. It was also quite loud at the time with some patrons having quite a few drinks + live music.

Very handy to the Merewether Motel where I was staying and in 38 degree heat the walk was just long enough. Two of us had the fresh chicken schnitty and others had the oven baked lasagna & lamb cutlets - all very good!! Staff very helpful and the joint was packed. Will return when back in the area
