Really popular spot. Lots of room and good selection of pub food. Good wine list for a pub. I had lambs shanks and my friend had fillet steak. Yummy

Fantastic family friendly venue that caters to all. Food is always delicious and the staff are more than helpful! The colouring in for the kids is great and always enough high chairs for the little ones. Definitely recommend!

Yesterday we revisited the Blue Gum hotel. The menu had changed but we still gave it a go. The mashed potato tasted strange. No vegetables with steak at $35. I had barramundi which was not cooked at one end. Never again

Great food and atmosphere- the steaks here are always cooked to perfection and the pizzas are also good - tasty, thin crust.
