We dropped in here after completing the Tree Top Challenge up at Thunderbird Park. Four very hungry kids and two tired mums. The entrance into the pub was dark and looked just as tired as we were. We grabbed the menus and headed outside as inside was too dark and dreary. Menu options looked good though a bit expensive. $20... More

They've attempted to change the menu since my last review but the menu is mainly burgers. We had 14 people 1 had the beef brisket burger from the food van - it was tough, massive disappointment for a foodie. Vegetarian had the street van vegetarian balls and they were so dry she couldn't eat them. Hubby and I had fat... More

A well organised and fun event. A choice of 1,2 or 3 courses for a set price with complimentary bubbles. All meals well presented and delicious, great friendly service. Highly recommended

We stayed on the weekend and attended a beautiful outdoor wedding. What a lovely location, having never been to Tamborine before we all really enjoyed it and the meals and service were really better than what we expected. Worth a visit just to check all the cool antiques and collector items in the main hotel.

Called into The Bearded Dragon Tavern at Tamborine for a nice lunch. We picked up two menu's at the bar and seated ourselves in an outside undercover area. I thought the menu was limited but being a Tuesday, probably not a very busy period . We ordered Garlic bread, my wife, a Burger, and I ordered a Guinness Pie. after... More

We had heard so many good things about this place, the location is fantastic, outdoor area is perfect for kids! .... But the meal was terrible, I paid $30 for a steak I couldn't chew, my salad had no dressing, it was just cabbage on a plate with a couple of pieces on tomato and my chips had no salt...... More

The location is fabulous, we didn't have our kids with us but imagine they would love the outside area. Inside was a little tired but very country pub style so the dated interior could be forgiven. We had intended on lunch but I wasn't going to pay those OTT prices for a burger or similar. Desperately needs a lunch menu... More

We visited the Bearded Dragon to watch a friends band playing and was surprised at the lack of attention to diners, pub goers and other guests at the tavern. Sitting outside the restaurant, we were only able to sit on ageing furniture which was delapidated from being outside in all weather and which was covered in the remnants from the... More

At $200 a night our accommodation was sadly lacking. The room was tired, smelled of stale cigarettes and had dirty towels. Our rolled bath towels sitting on the bed were damp, we had to drape them over the outdoor chairs to dry them. There was only 1 face washer which was filthy. No shampoo or conditioner, only 2 small soaps.... More

Inside the public bar has a country pub look and feel to it and the staff were friendly and welcoming. There beers on tap are main-stream varieties as well as a couple of average brews from a local craft brewer. The lunch menu range offers a variety of full sized meals but not a pub lunch prices. We chose a... More
