We go to the Dorset gardens for a seniors lunch sometimes and its excellent value at around $18 for three courses. Typical large hotel with gaming rooms near by but still nice enough.

Great food, large portions and well priced. Excellent for families with indoor kids playground. Can be a little noisy when busy. Staff are always friendly and helpful.

On each of the occasions we have been there the food has been very good, and the Seniors meals were quite large. There is a small play room for children with pinball machines and an indoor slide.

Great updated venue, basic pub meals, it has got a bit expensive now. Good if you want a pub night out with families, kids seem to love the play area. The staff are always friendly in my experience.
