We booked a table on the Saturday night of the great storm. It was a family and friends night. Mixture of kids , older children and adults. The menu looked appealing, but in reality was anything but appealing. The food was well overpriced and didn't...More

We had our annual family Christmas get together at the Waltzing Matilda Hotel today. What a disappointment. As a group I figure we spent roughly $800. What a mistake. The food here is overpriced and terrible. The mistake we made was not to read all...More
