Have been for a drink and a meal recently and wasn't disappointed. Meal was very good, selection of beers was good although they do lack old school beers on tap. Pleasant surrounds and friendly staff so it won't be my last visit.

Went to have some dinner but couldn't find any. Tried a drink but realised I was the wrong demographic So I thought I needed the toilet but the dried vomit on the 19th century urinal dried every thing up

The old bush inn is dead but don't let that fool you it's still a nice chilled out spot to have a drop on a sunny day. The feel is new and modern without tab in sight, to my surprise, craft beers on tap and the food is still spot on. I do miss the old decor of the outback... More

With sadness I'm sorry to report (as of June 2016) that this pub is due to close due to the sale of the premises. I've been here many times; it is a great traditional pub, with generous hearty meals, value for money and friendly service. The staff genuinely care about your experience. A good selection of beers on tap. Bar... More

Reserved a table here with some friends on a Wednesday night for dinner, which is burger night. We arrived early after work, so while our table was getting sorted we had a drink in the main bar. The service was very friendly and welcoming. When our table was ready the waitress let us know, then came over with menus and... More
