“The roasts are great value at $15”
Review of Donegal House

The roasts are great value and worth a visit for them alone- for $15 you get a huge roast (that stumps the biggest eaters in our group) and a dessert. Lots of photos of the Boyd family that own, who migrated from Ireland so the walls make for interesting viewing as well. About 10 minutes out of town (signposted off State Highway 1).

The roast was only $15 with dessert but the pork crackling was chewy and mostly inedible. I got the impression the food was perhaps left over from the day before and reheated.
The place was toasty warm though on a chilly night with a massive fire going down one end.
I think we would go again, give it one more try.

Its a nice bike ride away from the main town, worth it. The sunday roasts were a very good price, delicious and came with dessert. The waitress is very nice. The grounds are scenic as. Definitely reccomend.

By word of mouth we ended up at Donegal house, the staff were fanatsic and the meals were amazing, came out in good time, children welcome, they had a kids menu and high chairs. Amazing gardens, raining when we were there but very pretty and well looked after, Had a laugh at the ladies toilets.

Fantasitc meal deal of $15 for lamb roast so good we came back the second night to find they'd sold out. Their pork roast for $15 was awesome too so I had that. They also sold my favourite Bundaburg gingerbeer. They had a large open log fire place - very cosy warm. Great staff.
