Do not host a private function at this venue! No communication from the staff other than a last minute phone call in the few days leading up asking for the party to be pushed back later so that regulars would still be able to be there. After arriving at the venue was told that no one would be asked to leave or to not come into the venue even if not invited, even though we had organised a bar tab and private function (it’s uncomfortable to cut a birthday cake, while a stranger stands behind you eating steak and another walks through the bar wearing jandels and shorts and playing the pokies). Bar staff would not allow music to be played too loud incase it disturbed the regulars. Food was laid out, and gluten free food was forgotten, even though it was requested weeks in advance, host of the party had to wait 40 minutes to eat after everyone else! Staff member checking ID’s of invitees declined some attending even if over the age of 23, had to have a fight to get them through the door on the side of the road. Totally ridiculous. At the end of the evening staff began to pack up and clean before the party was over, and sat staring at all of the invitees until everyone felt uncomfortable and left early. Made for a terrible evening. Was a regular to the weekly quizzes and countless meals there with family. Will never be going here again after this horrible experience.
Wonderful little pub. Food was amazing, staff very friendly. Loved it, will definately return soon.
