    For a start they have 0 vegetarian options :( so my friends and I ordered chips and garlic bread and our other 3 friends had placed an order for steak and 2 schnitzels. We had been told it was a 90min wait, but assumed the chips and such wouldn’t take that long, unfortunately it actually took over an 1hr to get 1 chips, 2 garlic breads. And unfortunately the rest of us didn’t receive our orders at all. We kept playing our trivia until it needed and then asked for our food, only to be told the kitchen was closed. The staff gave us a cash refund and apologised. 5 stars for affordable cocktails and relatively fast bar staff.

    I always enjoy the pub food at the Pio but each time I go there I remember again, how noisy it is. The music is way too loud and all the diners have to shout to talk over it. It’s really annoying particularly at lunch time.

    Pioneer Tavern (Owner)

    Hi Sandra , Thankyou for the review , we value guest feedback and have passed this onto the team. Hope to see you again soon ! Regards, Team Pio

    We focused on the blackboard “Lunch Specials” for this visit and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The experience turned out to be the best advertisement for supporting your local pub. Menu choices were varied and service was prompt. Recommended.

    This visit is a test of consistency in terms of food quality, service and atmosphere. It’s our second visit in 3 weeks - to see if our initial impressions were accurate. Unfortunately, our steaks were tough and food presentation looked very hurried and untidy. Parts of my salad were hanging off the plate and actually landed on the table. The service remains very prompt and table QR code orders / payment worked really well. There’s room for improvement.

    Pioneer Tavern (Owner)

    Hi Rebecca, Thanks for the feedback, we will definitely be striving to improve this and look forward to your next visit. I am quite happy to hear that our staff are attending to you in a timely and freindly manner. If you are not happy with your meals or, with anything in the Hotel, please bring this to the attention of myself or one of my Managers and we will remedy this at the time. If you would like to discuss further, please call me at the Hotel on 4736 4466. Kind regards Trent Pittaway Venue Manager

    I am a regular customer, who loves the food and enjoys a variety of options. The service is great and plenty of seating. The only thing , is when I order chips they are not very hot. Thanks for a wonderful restaurant.

    Pioneer Tavern (Owner)

    Hi Suzanne, Thanks for the feedback we will definitely pass this on to the kitchen and hopefully next time you are in the chips will be hot and crispy. So glad you enjoy coming in here and that we are making you feel welcome. We love having our guests back in the pub. Look forward to seeing you on your next visit. Kind Regards Trent Pittaway Venue Manager

    The Pioneer Tavern is more than just the usual “Pub”. Most expected pub classics on the menu are done well and served in fairly generous portions. The staff are courteous, welcoming and efficient. Service was very prompt. Diners can enjoy the light-filled dining area and a generous terrace. We particularly enjoyed the lunchtime specials. Recommended for families, groups and casual dining.

    Pioneer Tavern (Owner)

    Hi Rebecca, Thanks so much for the great review and for taking the time to let everyone know how much you enjoyed your experience with us. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit. Kind Regards Team Pio

    Service is good and being able to order from the table instead of lining up is great so you dont have to leave the table and talk with your table partner’s

    Pioneer Tavern (Owner)

    Hi Ken, Thanks for coming in. Glad you enjoyed your time with us. ME&U is a great system, good to see that you utilised it and that you found it useful. Regards Team Pio.

    We were very disappointed where we we seated as we booked a table for 7 people but we couldn’t talk or hear anyone as our table was in the sports bar which was very loud, the food was very salty and we also complained about the area we were seated in but felt that the staff member did not care,
