We went down to The Wade last Sunday for a relaxed late lunch & it was amazing. A great little Blues Band on the deck, kids playing in the Huge back yard & pub food to die for. A fantastic & historic place to relax in. Will be back SOON!

I went there a few days ago for the first time. I had lunch and the food was delicious. I was keen to return. Having taken my husband back for dinner I was really disappointed. The fish and chips was very expensive for two tiny slivers of fish and a plate of chips. Really unexpected in a pub meal. I had the same vege stack I had previously had at lunch and it was smaller than my lunch time version and lacked taste. The yummy home made sauce was replaced by bottled, the relish on the bread was replaced wih mayo and it just lacked any real taste or quality. Service was fine. Unfortunately the inconsistency in quality will stop me from returning.

We visited The Wade last weekend Sunday for lunch, heading out for a pub meal with friends, and expecting nothing flash. Wow were we suprised when we walked in. The place has been completely re-done since any of the group had last visited (2-5 years ago) and it was packed.

We ordered off the pub lunch menu, food was fantastic, service too was good too, no complaints there. It was very busy so took a bit of time for the meals to come out, but well worth the wait.

We sat on the deck in the winter sun with the heaters on, and it was an awesome way to spend a sunday arvo with friends.

Heading back this weekend to try the breakfast menu :-)

We were stoked to find this place, having just moved to the coast, and being so so disappointed with all the other restaurants we had tried in the area, this is definetly our new favorite spot.

Well I recently have stepped into the Wade Hotel to enjoy the most fab evening dining that I now don't have to drive to the city to get! Our meals were not only amazingly presented but also very tasty, with sound combining flavours and great choices to view and choose from.
the service was friendly and efficient with good attention to detail.

The new decor was a welcome change and very tastefully assigned, I will be spreading the word and definitely returning to try the lunch menu with friends very soon.

We really enjoyed our Saturday lunch.

Sister and I shared a small bottle of bubbles and both of us enjoyed the pumpkin and fetta salad.

He that was with us had a huge steak with mushroom sauce, chips and passed on the green stuff and left nothing on his plate.

The staff were friendly, the surroundings really very nice, nothing like the Wade of old.

The prices were affordable, one can take the family I am looking forward to going there in the Summer and sitting on the deck in the sun.

Thumbs up to the new Wade concept the Hibiscus Coast has need something like this for a long time

I hadn't been to the Wade Hotel for years and was pleasantly surprised with the new decor, a vast improvement to the original. But I was hugely disappointed in the food, not only was it overpriced but it was mediocre to say the least, and to be served by a waitress that stunk of cigarettes was very off putting, sadly I won't be eating there again.

The restroom (ladies) was very clean and presentable and my husband said the same of the men's restroom.

Please please please Wade Hotel either hire non smoking waitresses or tell your waitresses to clean up their act!

Bar staff were friendly.

Sounds like possibly a one off situation. We called into the Wade Bistro & Bar on Sunday. It was a gorgeous day so sat out on their beautiful big deck and soaked up the sun. The wait staff were all very well presented, very friendly and helpful. Our food was really enjoyable, and I thought the prices were very fair (certainly a bit cheaper than Albany and City prices).
We had the squid with corriander sauce, curried mussles and fish & chips which were all excellant. (kids meals were great too)
Also thought the wine list was very extensive for a small town pub.
I have just found out the restaurant at the Wade Hotel has only been open 5 weeks, so hopefully just teething problems. I will deffinately being returning and hope that you give them another chance. Its so great to see someone trying to bring some new life to an old and dated pub. Thumbs up to the (new?) owners. - Report
