Wow! We took my 2 Aunts that were visiting from interstate, along with my Dad, husband and daughter. We take them there each year they visit us and we are yet to be disappointed. We love to old English pub feel and love the work they are doing to restore it to its former glory. Loving the playground out the back to distract the kids while we are having our meal. As for the food, there wasn't a scrap left! The lamb shanks were divine, awesome for a visit in the cooler weather. The lambs fry took my Aunt back to her childhood and the other loved her fish and chips. My husband had the chicken parmigiana and that was devoured! I had a serve of the pumpkin arancini and it took a lot of restraint not to lick the bowl to get every bit of the blue cheese sauce! The kids meal was brought out earlier, but not too early that she'd finished by the time our meals came out. We will return again and I'm sure my Aunts will request dinner here again when they visit next year. Can't speak highly enough of this hotel. We always feel welcome when we come in. Thank you.
While looking for a quick meal close by, we resorted to the Pump Hotel, since our usual haunts weren't open or were booked out. So glad we did! Hadn't tried it for a while and we were totally blown away by the excellent meals. My partner had a steak (it was steak night), which was large, succulent and delicious (apparently)... I had calamari. Both beautifully prepared with interesting flavour combinations. The house wine was excellent too (Q merlot) - tasted wooded from barrel fermentation and a deep, quality flavour, with generous glasses for around $7.50! Don't judge their food by their website...looks like that needs a bit of work, with better photos and links needed etc, but rest assured the food is great now that they have a new chef :)
