    We ordered three Meals, the first too came out and it was 25 minutes before the third came out. The food was good but the staff seemed busy and rushing and confused.

    If you present a $6 luv a duck breast for $34 and only garnish it with the eyes of four pink onions, well that’s embarrassing not only for the chef but for the hotel. Do the owners know that they are serving substandard food at premium prices?

    Great from greeting to ‘see you next time’. Sat near the fire and enjoyed an easy pace into Friday night of the long weekend. Fantastic Shiraz, meals and another Shiraz. Friendly efficient service. A favourite place to visit regularly!!

    The North Star never disappoints, brilliant venue, the indoor/outdoor feel is amazing, food is superb... may have ordered too much, as there are so many amazing choices! Table service was a bit rushed, felt like we had not finished and the table was being cleared, plus and extra round of drinks never arrived. We'll definetly go back though!

    Our share plates were very tasty and beautifully presented. Served professionally and the wait time was very good. Accompanied by an excellent wine, shared dessert and coffee. Unfortunately one of our dessert options was not available

    The layout was slightly confusing, had different areas upstairs and downstairs all with different names it was confusing to navigate but the service was spot on. We were served almost right away even though it was busy. Food came out so fast, the price was a little high $29 for fish and chips but overall was a good experience.

    We enjoyed a high quality Mother's Day evening meal! The Rib eye steaks were excellent with nicely cooked vegetables and a delicious jus. The service friendly and attentive. Most impressed all round. My son had the fish and chips which was also very good - hot, fresh and crispy. Our wines were good - with a reasonable selection by the glass - might be worth putting the Mitchell Harris Cabernet by the glass, as I would have had that (or their shiraz) - adds a quality local touch to the list. Well done team!

    The staff were wonderfully accommodating to our three hungry, roaming kids while we could relax and enjoy the beautiful atmosphere. The food was delicious, although I really felt like a hearty veggie salad and the salad menu lacked gourmet salad options. So I had the tofu poke bowl and quite enjoyed it. Another couple of dishes to the table weren't served with any condiments/sauces we imagined would have been standard, but the staff were happy to chase some down. We love this venue, we appreciate the all day dining so much and can't wait for the next opportunity to return.

    I would ask staff to put their respective mobile phones in a locker during their is a distraction. Also, clearing tables of empty glasses etc. was non existent and I would have spent more money on wine to accompany the great food if I could have gained someone's attention.

    We love the food! The service was great and it’s a great looking venue. It was noisy though. You might consider ways to absorb noise. Steak was remarkable and I now have 6 other people recommending to their friends.

    The staff were welcoming and helpful. The meal was very good but what made it better than a good pub meal was the delicious cheesecake dessert. I hope they keep it on the menu!

    Chose venue as was away from the main city area and had a comprehensive menu. Indoor dining area was lovely and staff were friendly. Meals were all delicious (pork spring rolls, gnocchi, duck, parmi’s, snitzels, prawns). House wine was good quality. Would definitely return and recommend.
