We love Robbies for its hearty and simple food and great service. Have had meals there a few times and never were disappointed.

“Very much a pub meal”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

As far as a pub meal goes its fine. My partner had steak and fries,I had a poor attempt at Thai beef. Service was good, and the place is clean and tidy. Sports groups are well suited as it caters for them well.

Not much atmosphere, but a good place to take the kids. Well priced, basic food, but it tastes good.

“great value for brekky menu”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

price wise and taste wise can't fault the brekky menu however kitchen staff need to warm the plates prior to serving and check food temperatures are hot not lukewarm.

lunch menu bit pricey - but taste fantastic.
