    The Shafston is a super cool place to hang out for a drink and a meal. The vibe is casual, relaxed and laid back in a large, clean and well ventilated space with high ceilings. The wooden timber features though, look a tad dated now, so this place could probably do with a bit of a makeover. I’d say this hasn’t been done in decades, and it shows. Seating in the main bar area is on comfy bar stools with steel tables. There’s plenty of lighting to illuminate the place, huge fans to keep you cool in summer and heaters scattered around the place to keep you warm in winter, which is pretty essential because this can be a freezing place. There is also some seating in a lounge type area, next door and just in front of the gaming area, but there are no heaters in this part. We’ve been to the Shafston a few times, and service has always been of the highest standard. Staff are neatly attired in smart black uniforms and they’re friendly, polite and efficient. Ordering is done the old fashioned way, up at a counter just outside the kitchen and within a few minutes, meals are brought out to the table. Food is average with nothing to really rave about, but it’s solid, healthy fare and you won’t leave here feeling hungry. Being a member of the Publinc rewards program gives you member prices, which certainly keeps the cost down. If it weren’t for programs like Publinc and Monty’s Rewards, we would never be able to afford to eat out. And to add to the savings, we also received 15 pesos in free promos, to use, which was appreciated. To top off a pleasant and relaxed eve, it’s important to mention the two other features of this place that, in my book at least, are essential if you are going to enjoy your night out! 1. Ample, clean toilets that are easy to find behind the gaming room AND 2. plenty of free parking in the venue’s own car park, although it’s easy to miss it as you drive down Lytton Street. More prominent signage on the road outside before you reach it, would be helpful. Generally we enjoy coming here and will continue patronising this place. Thanks to the hardworking chefs, kitchen staff and wait staff for always guaranteeing a nice experience. And thanks to Publinc Communities for the modest member prices and regular rewards.

    This is our second visit to the restaurant. The menu is typical of pub food. Nonetheless we ordered the steak and it was cooked exactly to my liking. We certainly will go back there again for a meal.

    I was surprised that food was so good for a suburban pub restaurant. My wife had the rib fillet which was cooked perfectly as medium rare and I had the beef cheeks which was so delicious. Definitely going back in the future.

    Steak night every Monday . Love it and they know how to cook a blue steak. Have been going there for the last 11 months and the place is just getting better every week. The staff are very friendly and a special mention to Luke who goes the extra mile to make us feel special.

    Fantastic service, great atmosphere and really friendly staff. The best quality steak sandwich I’ve ever had. The Shaftson Hotel has great menu options.
