This is a welcoming sight at the foot of Mt Tamborine in the Gold Coast Hinterland or south of Brisbane. The hotel is on a countryside property and has gazebos and a BBQ area and caters for kids. There are old wagons, and country style paraphenalia scattered around. Even a few llamas for the kids and adults to go see... More

Beer was great, food was even better! It is such a quirky place with lots to look at. Dinner by the fire was amazing.

The owners only care for the profit made at the weekend - at the weekend it is very busy & you may get a different experience.... but if you visit during the week, you can be standing at the bar waiting for service for a very long time - the staff are all out the back oblivious. They even left... More

My family moved to Tamborine 6 months ago and we are all for supporting local business. Today was the third time we've given the Bearded Dragon a go for a meal. Once previously for lunch and this morning was our second attempt at breakfast. Each experience we've had with the Dragon has been dismal. Poor service, obvious disorganisation between ordering...

I understand it was a busy day but they seam to have no systems in place, staff training is lacking and the food was very average. I even had one staff member say I don't know anything we are just filling in. Took over 30 mins to get a beer. Won't be back.

We waited 1 hour for cold eggs benny and hard poached eggs. This would have been fine but the place was empty! Only three tables occupied in the entire venue. Two stars are for the location of the venue, very pretty surrounds. Probably won't be back.

This is a nice place for lunch. There is a massive outdoor area most of which is undercover and there is a stage for the awesome sunday session music. It is a little bit expensive the last time we went there but the food is good.

The staff are not properly trained the meals are restaurant prices and worse than old fashioned pub standard. Recently a group of 5 of us went out for a small celebration and when seated we were given dirty plastic menus. The tables are covered in butchers paper ( I guess that means you don't have to was the table clothes... More
