Very helpful waitress with accommodating my fructose partner. Steak was lovely. However $10 for 2 slices of gluten free bread with butter on it is ridiculous. Also $10 for a glass of wine was a bit steep considering the whole bottle probably didn't cost much...More

We were impressed by the scallop options on a straightforward pub food menu. I had the parmesan crumbed scallops with salad and chips. John had the creamy mushroom, bacon and scallops dish with rice. Both were tasty.

If I could rate this hotel a 0/5 I certainly would. Having looked up good bars in Launceston, this seemed to be the place to visit for a simple and hearty pub meal. Don't be fooled! The food took over an hour, and once it...More

This used to be the best food in Launceston but it is now very ordinary pub food. Not sure what has happened but we were very disappointed. Meal took over one hour to arrive as well.

Nothing to write home about pretty standard pub menu, have been a couple of times mixed results some times good other times not. Last time steak was small for the price and sauce was instant gravy with a few minor additions, not value for money....More

I should say at the outset that this review and rating is as a pub/bar only and not the food as we did not eat there. We went with the intention of having a couple of drinks and then a meal. However, the bar is...More
