We are locals and regulars. Its good pub food and pretty consistent. They arent gourmet fancy food and they dont pretend too. Just a simple local pub with a family atmostphere.

Standard pub food not done very well. I had a Peri Peri chicken burger for lunch and it was a chicken schnitzel (overcooked) with a slab of sour cream and some sweet chilli sauce. I could've cooked better at home.

Hi Adaff,

We are disappointed to hear you did not enjoy your experience at The Rutherford hotel. Since you're review we have been compiling a new menu and continually working to improve our standard of service. Our lunch menu (including the peri peri burger) is a compilation of $10 meals designed to be simple, quick meals at a nice low price. However this does not excuse that you were disappointed with you meal and for this we apologise.

I lived in Rutherford for many years and I used to frequent this place regularly with good results.

It's not 5 star but they don't pretend to be either. It's just good quality pub food that the locals are more than happy to eat at and if the locals like it then they must be doing something right?

Most nights of the week they have a discount night ($12 schnitzels, surf & turf and grill night etc) and these meals are good value.

All in all te food is good, the service is friendly and the beer is cold... You can't ask much more from a small pub!!

Very average pub style food, seating odd. Little to no parking available. Service slow and sloppy. My chicken was still bleeding! Will never go back!

Great pub food with pub prices. Recommend that you phone ahead and book as this is a popular haunt with the locals especially for birthdays etc. I was there mid-week and we were lucky to get a table.
