Kid, baby, friend & parent friendly. Food, beer & service great. Open fire round the back keeps it cosy all year round. A great respite to some fresh winter weather.

A great pub, fantastic beer and good food. As a local I am disappointed that the owners have taken out the wood fires, and replaced the front door. This is THE place to drink in the local area. Also good for business meetings in a...More

Had dinner on Thursday and it was so disappointing. Over priced poor quality food. Small portions and won't be returning again

Monday (public holiday) afternoon lunch for four. Great selection of beers on tap. Paddles were a great way to sample all the different flavours. Beef and porter pie was delicious. Very busy. Friendly service. Great atmosphere. Worth booking on weekends. Overall a really enjoyable experience.

Food took ages took almost as long to order and food was quite bland seasoning is the key guys need to use them to enhance flavours. Outdoor heating virtually non existent got more heat blowing into my hands.

I love my beer. I love Holgate's, historically known as Keatings Hotel. One of the oldest buildings in town. It is my local after all. However, you have to be really selective of the beer here. Some are just really tasteless and/or the flavours just...More

Went for a pint, went home disappointed. Service non-existent. Signature beer - the ESB - was poured out at 2 in the arvo?!? A restaurant masquerading as a pub. Don't make same mistake; go to your local bottle shop insteadMore

Hi Darren, I'm really sorry for not having the ESB in stock. I'm currently investigating why this happened but I think it was due to us being super busy over the Anzac weekend. I have instructed our bar manager to make sure we carry enough...More
