Staff were lovely, restaurant was clean and well kept but the food was utterly inedible. Over cooked, way too salty - and that's the best I can say - sorry.

Seemed not much open in Atherton today, decided to go to this pub. Staff so friendly and helpful. We were staying at Palm Cove, the contrast was amazing. I had reef and beef and wife had the wild barramundi. My meal was large and fantastic but my wife scored better. It is so long since I have seem real barramundi... More

I had ordered for lunch "CLASSIC BEER BATTERED MACKERAL" w/lemon wedge & tartare. Absolutely terrible. Mackerel like a piece of leather heated up in microwave. Chips cold and salad comes with no tomatoes. Take my advice do not order this dish. On the other hand my husband did enjoy his "LAMBS FRY & BACON from the seniors home style classic... More

Menu does not have any vegetarian options available but I called up and asked. They made me a lovely pasta and served fresh vegetables. Staff are friendly. Bistro is clean and welcoming. Very fresh salads.

Being a lover of Roast Pork my DH opted for that meal but was immediately turned off by the fact that the Roast was rolled Pork and that he did not get any crackling at all. The plate was 90% steamed vegetables with no flavour and he didn't eat even a quarter of it. Our children are the spaghetti bolognese... More

We were driving past hungry and took a punt. Really glad we did as the server staff were lovely, the food was delicious and they had free wifi! The "stump", as we're told its known locally, is an excellent place for an unexpected pub meal. Recommended to all tourists.

Service was awesome....something on the menu had sold out but they did their best to give us something as close to what we wanted as they could. All meals were delicious! We had kids with us and they looked after them beautifully.

From the first phone call the staff at this place couldn't be more helpful. The staff manager drove the courtesy bus to pick us (6) up, the roast was all you could eat for $17.50, and the drinks were reasonably priced and then we got dropped home again by the bus. Great service lovely food. Thank you
