“The roasts are great value at $15”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

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).

“Well priced for a basic roast and dessert”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

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.

Reviewed 16 June 2013

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.
