For the price and convenience, this is a good option for dining relatively cheaply in Katoomba, especially for older travellers. All meals were cooked at a standard higher than we expected. My only complaint was the annoying music that was a mixed-bag playlist from the 1930s-1970s. Quieter instrumental music or no music would be better.

Thank Wendy S

This family run restaurant and hotel offered great value for money. The steak and sauce dish was really good and the size couldn't be beaten. Children have to be accompanied around the restaurant, on the way to the toilet for example, because the dining area is connected to the bar which is only for person's who have reached the legal drinking age.

These are great old fasion pub meals. Crumbed Lamb Cutlets with Gravy and Mint Sauces with Mashed Potato and steamed vegetables. All homemade. No instant potato, more than generous serving. Recommend to everyone that wants a good meal that doesn't break the bank and leave you wanting more. Staff are very friendly and helpful which is a rare find in such a tourist destination. Very much the pub on the corner you can go to everyday Sunday for a good Meal.

We go to the Family all the time and not once have we been disappointed, I would recommend it to anyone that is not pretentious and just wants to have a good feed.

Pama if you could call it that, must have come out of a box, the steak was tough as an old boot. Waitress was helpful though, but the chef verbally abusing her from the kitchen door was off putting. Very amateur to say the least...
