We were on the lookout for a casual mid-range meal venue for the four of us dine in, and chose Star and Garter out of the few in this small town. The location of the Restaurant is good as its right in the middle of town, and it has a great gold-mining era history, displayed in words and pictures across... More

Another good visit. Visited twice over our two day trip. Sneaky vino one night. And dinner the second. Chicken burger and fried chicken and fries. Happy enough for us. Friendly staff as usual and a fire going so nice and warm. Only down side was the local fishermans loud voice who cut our short stay by upsetting the baby but... More

We were on our way to another venue and walked past this one. We were looking for wood fired pizza and they do these, among other things. Great food and a good wine list, and I loved the fairy lights around the bar! Quite a variety on the menu other than pizzas so will definitely be coming back. It was... More

Popped in for dinner and a drink and were greeted by a girl with a self entitled extremely rude attitute that was sacrastic at any opportunity. Apparently she was from the Ukraine originally, made us feel like we were not welcome, so instead of staying for a few more rounds, we left. Positive side, pizzas were great. Need better bar...

We had lunch here on a Saturday in April and were impressed with both the service and the quality of food. The bar staff were super friendly and were able to advise us on cocktails - of which we sampled quite a few between us!! Highly recommended for a girls weekend or a romantic lunch for two!

I only drank here but some family members had the green lipped mussels and they were of excellent quality and plentiful. Its a great looking pub, hailing from days gone by - well worth a drop in.

We dined here in January and were very impressed with their food. We were lucky enough to arrive at the right time I think between 5-7pm and so their Pizza's were only $15.00. I had a chicken one and my friend the Hawaiian. Well they are gourmet, I absolutely loved mine it was really different with cashew nuts, banana etc.... More

Whilst eating at this restaurant for dinner at 7.00pm on a Sunday a staff member decided to smash bottles into a bin right next to where we were eating. Well if you have ever experienced this noise 'quite deafening'. I duly complained to one of the waitresses. Nothing. The smashing of bottles continued for 15minutes or more. If I had... More

Had lunch at the Star and Garter yesterday; great fish and chips, cool mocktails. Nice atmosphere with really friendly and personal service. Nice heritage pub with modern twist and pleasant surroundings. Really good experience in a kicked back place with amazing scenery all round. Highly recommended......
