Being a lover of Roast Pork my DH opted for that meal but was immediately turned off by the fact that the Roast was rolled Pork and that he did not get any crackling at all. The plate was 90% steamed vegetables with no flavour and he didn't eat even a quarter of it. Our children are the spaghetti bolognese... More

We were driving past hungry and took a punt. Really glad we did as the server staff were lovely, the food was delicious and they had free wifi! The "stump", as we're told its known locally, is an excellent place for an unexpected pub meal. Recommended to all tourists.

Service was awesome....something on the menu had sold out but they did their best to give us something as close to what we wanted as they could. All meals were delicious! We had kids with us and they looked after them beautifully.

From the first phone call the staff at this place couldn't be more helpful. The staff manager drove the courtesy bus to pick us (6) up, the roast was all you could eat for $17.50, and the drinks were reasonably priced and then we got dropped home again by the bus. Great service lovely food. Thank you

I suspect the steaks are the best choice here. I ordered the chilli prawn pasta, and am pretty sure the sauce cam from a jar - it was very spicy with three ingredients - pasta, prawns and the sauce. I would not recommend this menu item.

Standard everyday country pub with food. Bistro has basic furniture and decor and clean and neat tables, a pool table. Food was good serves of good Aussie grub  - as usual the steak is reccomended - no frills no flounces well cooked to your taste, chips Ok too.  Service was excellent, warm, friendly, helpful,and keen to please - extra requests...

We had our Mothers 80th Birthday here. There were over 70 guests and they kindly closed the venue to the public and really looked after us. Staff were helpful...food was plentiful and yummy. Everyone commented how good it was. They even looked after the kids with games. It was a great night. We would recommend the Atherton Hotel 'The Stump'... More
