We were looking for a pub meal with a TV to catch up on some rugby. We chose this hotel but were disappointed to learn that our two preferred meal items were 'sold out' - the roast and lamb shank. But we stayed and chose the beef burger and a very good bottle of red and had a great night.... More

Enjoyed a very hearty meal here with my husband on a particularly cold evening but the dining area was as warm as toast. Easy dining, quick service, sports bar with tv's strategically placed around the room. A few areas to choose from, both indoors and outdoors. Open for lunch and dinner. Good value and plenty of it if you are... More

Loved this pub! Super friendly staff and really nice vibe, we sat by the fire, my partner had the roast pork and I had the dumplings which were really good!Definitely found it hard to pull ourselves up out of our seats to leave the fire! Lovely spot...

There are 3 choices of menu. Pub fare, Asian, or pizza. We went for the Asian menu. Chose Beijing duck and chilli chicken. Both were really delicious. We sat on the deck. Great atmosphere. Very impressed with service. We received our meals within about 5 min even though it was fairly busy. The staff were very friendly and checked in... More

This hotel is in the high street. Free parking is available along the river - beware of the parking bays in the town...they all have limited parking times. The hotel has super friendly staff. It is an old hotel...dating back to the 1800's but the rooms are clean and serviced daily. The restaurant in the hotel serves delicious freshly cooked... More

Staff helpful but not as attentive as expected even though we weren't there at high traffic time. Food was okay and definitely nice to sit outside on the porch watching the river.

This pub seems to have a identity crisis. Outside is a sign informing one that the place is Paddy Fins Irish Pub. The price paid for hiring backpackers, almost non existent service! Menus scattered on table, another confusing option. Four different menus with different food options under different names. I had pulled pork on garlic bread with gravy. Bread seemed... More
