Black Forest Tavern

Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2017

This pub venue with a verandah & separate restaurant is overdue a refurb but it's become a frequent haunt due to the incredible value of some excellent food. The eisbein is legendary as should be the lamb curry which melts off the bone. The owner has come to recognise us & the staff are friendly & efficient. The food & drinks are really reasonably priced so even more reason to recommend the venue.

There is nothing fancy about this off the beaten track restaurant – good wholesome food – generous servings especially the Eisbien – reasonable prices and friendly service – if you are hungry this is the place to go - sort of cosy pub for afterwork sundowners.

We have now been to this establishment twice. Needless to say, this is our new local eatery. The service is great. The waitress remembers you from your previous visit. The owner is involved and it shows in the service. The food is to die for. My husband had Eisbein on both visits. I opted for the Pork Pot Roast on the first visit and the Oxtail on the second visit. Outstanding. There is a smoking section for the smokers. Definitely worth a visit. To make it even more outstanding, is that the bill will not break the bank.

This restaurant used to have a good reputation for its food, but no more.
There is a deck outside & a pub inside. A typical "Local"

Meals served were very average. Cutlery and crockery cheap and nasty, decor ok. Coffee served was awful as restaurant did not seem to have a percolator. Unlikely that I will return.
