We chose to stay at the hotel based on a couple of previous reviews online and simply regretted it ! Service was clumsy and food was average. We ate half our meal and went looking for more food elsewhere. Awoke in the middle of the night to the sound of the animals running across the roof above me and my...

Great old fashioned family service and country hospitality. Great roast night Sunday - Pork was so generous and succulent and five vegetables. Don't waste your money anywhere else. Accomodation also available $40.00

So what started off as being just dinner and a couple of beers ended up being a fair session at the Shakey. Out of the 4 pubs this was the only one with diners and it didn't take us long to see why. Firstly the meals are very good value and pretty good quality. Both of us were very happy...

We had 2 dinners here and both were lovely. The steak we had was cooked as ordered and was delicious. The roast we had was lamb and very enjoyable. Popped in for wedges for lunch they were yummy. Friendly owners and very polite staff. Highly recommended.

Love this hotel, especially the authenticness of an old pub. Such friendliness - felt like home for the short time we stayed. We're here in a cold snap, so good to rug up in the blankies and read for a bit at night. Great start to the day with breaky on the verandah in the sun. Thank you Barry, Heather...

Beautiful old pub - best priced rooms, great feel. Stayed there twice now and will again. Loved it! As another reviewer put it "people maketh the Pub", and I was welcomed and looked after by a whole bunch of friendly staff.
