The service here is fantastic, attentive & friendly. My meal however was pretty awful. Gnocchi with confit duck... the gnocchi was overcooked & the duck confit looked like sloppy dog food with intermittent tastes of garlic & then salt. Not a nice description but unfortunately accurate in this case. My partner enjoyed his meal of the steak. We will return... More

Easy place to eat when you don't want to go far from home. We probably eat here about 4 times a year. Sometimes go before we go to the cinema next door. Tonight the chef did me a favour and switched out the linguine for homemade gnocchi with a smoked salmon creamy sauce with capers and spinach. I really enjoyed... More

Once again, this venue produced good honest tasty food which was reasonably priced. My salt and pepper squid was beautifully cooked without being at all oily. My partner's pasta was freshly prepared and modified to cater for her food allergies - all without any problem. The selected wines were of good quality and price. Service was friendly and efficient. Overall... More

Mount Barker is quite a long way from home, so we don't come here often, but when we do, Auchendarroch is a good meal stop. We come for our midday meal, and have a very pleasant table for two, by the window with a garden outlook. The service is excellent and attentive. We order and receive our drinks at our... More

We have dined at Auchendarroch Tavern a few times and have always found the food to be outstanding. The staff are friendly and the choice on the menu encourages you to come back. I highly recommend the movie and meal deal as you get the admission to your choice of movie and a special menu. The staff will also make... More

Large tavern. Good for family groups with deals to the nearby movies. Quite good food and efficient and friendly service. Great live music the night we were there.

The food here was not good, except the garlic bread. I had a chicken schnitzel with hot chips, the chips were frozen & not cooked well. My wife had fish & prawns, the whole dish just looked beige. This was one of the worst meals I have had in Australia.

Very disappointed with the customer service and meals. We waited for a long time for our meals when they did arrive only four out of the five meals arrived together. We asked two members of staff when the meal would be delivered and were told soon. We had finished our meals by the time the fifth meal (salt&pepper squid) was... More
