    First time at the Crown. Lovely pub fare without pretence. It was a good hangout which would be popular with the Fringe crowd. Will be back if back that way again.

    The staff were excellent, and the service was great. I was disappointed that my experience was not as good as I hoped it would be as I found the food was well below par. I ordered the sirloin which was meant to be accompanied by baby roast potatoes cooked in duck fat. I believe the steak appeared to be cooked to perfection (didn't get to try it), but it arrived on 'COLD' potatoes (meant to be hot). Come on guys, the potatoes seemed as though they were old and left over from the day before, and unless its potato salad, potatoes are always meant to be piping hot! I was also miffed by the prawns in cream sauce that I ordered to have on my steak - there were two measly small prawns in a small dish of cream sauce - $12 wasted! I cannot understand how a chef can send below average food out to customers and keep his dignity. The wait staff, on the other hand were excellent and the person who served me was very 'on the ball' and took my plate back to the kitchen for a second try. She also had the grace to offer me a drink on the house while I waited. My new plate of food arrived a little later and the potatoes were hot (still thoroughly overcooked), and the steak was excellent. Needless to say, I won't be back, and I wouldn't recommend the food (well not the dish I had). If you want to go for drinks, it is probably a great place to visit with friends. The ambience is very cool with great paintings decorating the walls in the dining room.

    Waiting and bar staff were lovely. We ordered at 7.30 (kitchen closed at 8) and we got our entrees and mains within minutes of each other. It felt like the kitchen wanted to close and go home - get the meals out quickly. Mains we're disappointing - lamb skewers came with minimal 'Fattoush salad', more like a cheap garden salad - cos lettuce, tomato wedges and 4 or 5 tiny pieces of pita. Super Salad was disappointing too - included quinoa and 75% of the salad was this - a salad bulked up to the max

    We came for lunch, and it was lovely. Great salads, and really good service with our pre-order! The bar staff were lovely too. We'll be back again.

    all 6 meals were great. Steaks were cooked to perfection and were very juicy. Kangaroo was perfectly cooked medium rare. Would definitely go back.

    The crown and sceptre is one of our favourite places to dine, and generally we have no complaints at all, but on this visit, all the staff seemed to want to be somewhere else, which was disappointing. A simple thing like seeing empty glasses on a table, and taking the time to ask if the patrons would like another drink, would help both the ratings and the bottom line.

    Haven't been there in a while & was very pleasantly surprised by the dining areas.... Liked the atmosphere.... Food was exceptional. We had oysters kilpatrick, which were hot & big & plump. My partner had the fettuccine & I had a steak sandwich. Both serves were really generous. Service was quick & pleasant. Prices were reasonable.... My only slight criticism was the entrée & main came too close together.

    We booked for an early dinner before going to the theatre. We got great service from Aysha. She is friendly, helpful and great asset to the hotel. The food was mainly good and plentiful (no-one could finish their schnitzels). The herb crust was a bit too much on the schnitzels, plain crumb would have been better and the zucchini fritters were pretty tasteless. Having said the bad stuff, the arancini balls were super yummy. Atmosphere was good and I will definitely return.

    This local hotel was fantastic, it has an awesome atmosphere, great friendly and helpful staff. Best of all our steaks were superb they were cooked exactly how we asked and they tasted amazing not to mention the beautiful wine that was selected for us to go with the meal, also the prices were very reasonable. We are from Victoria and this place is definitely on our list to come again.

    The Crown and Sceptre was a disappointing experience. The service was non existent, some friendly staff behind the bar but these were replaced by a surly person who was clearly eager for us to leave. Our entree dishes were not cleared before our mains arrived. I cleared them myself to make way for the new dishes. The mains were cold. When we asked for condiments ( sauce and pepper) we were speaking to the back of the server who barely acknowledged the request. The bar and restaurant was practically empty and there were three staff on. As we ordered our drinks and meals at the bar I don't understand how the basics of hospitality could be missed. Disappointing, would not recommend.

    The staff are fantastic and really accommodating. Drink prices are very reasonable and they have an excellent selection of beers on tap. While the food was delicious, the value for money differed per dish. The salt and pepper squid came with a tiny salad and maybe 7 pieces of squid. For $22 it left a lot to be desired, but it was very tasty. Other meals, such as the burgers, looked to be better value for money.

    Have eaten there before, and as per previous experience, food was excellent. Service was a bit slow, waited over half an hour for our desserts. Staff stated kitchen was extremely busy, however dining area did not appear to be as crowded as previous visits
