Great potential with this site and facility with special offers and attractions. Absolutely tremendous views over the Pacific Ocean and geared for weddings outside to take advantage of stunning views. Potential not developed. Also great heritage site and connections linked to Burwood Colliery now redeveloped as Dudley Beach Estate. Also had honour roll of all those killed over the years... More

They do good pub food, but it's not that cheap, and the building has the best view, but you can't enjoy it because... More

Excellent value for money. Leean and her staff provide excellent, friendly service and meals the equal of any of Newcastle 5 star restaurants. The mid week dinner specials and lunch deals are especially appealing. I cannot rate it highly enough. Keep up the good work Leean.

The original chef and his fantastic staff have left and new people have taken over. The food is very ordinary, the service is just passable please come back Adam.

Myself & 11 friends spent the afternoon at the club for Barefoot Bowls ( great fun at a friendly club) & stayed for dinner on Sunday 17 - 3 - 13. This is my fourth visit to this great little place, which boasts not only beautiful ocean views, & friendly courteous staff, but beautifully prepared meals to suit all budgets.... More

I have been to the Burwood Colliery Bowling and Sports Club a few times, on last Sundays of the month, for the kids disco, kids eat free on Sundays... And with all those kids on the bowling club side and all that noise, The Colliery Restaurant is surprisingly quiet, the staff can't be more helpful, understanding, timely and all round... More
