We decided to try this Hotel, and we were pleasantly surprised. It overlooks the water, and has a pool adjacent which young children were enjoying. I opted for the Seniors Lunch Meal which was a Roast along with a free dessert. This was one of the best roasts that I had of late. Meat was tender, lovely gravy, and roast... More

Fine for a night out but don't expect a culinary delight. I ordered the rump special and just got cartilage and fat. The chips were nice. Otherwise a good evening there

We had amazing meals for reasonable prices, Bushes Steak Hit staff were polite and friendly. Pity the staff from the tavern were rude and obnoxious, clearing food without asking, walking into people without apologising and packing away tables and chair while people were still eating. Great pool to finish off the meals for the kids.

Great spot on the coast for a lunch if you are in the area. Large menu with reasonable price. Not a flash place (plastic outdoor chairs and tables) but it is coastal. You can use the pool as well I believe. Service is quite quick and the meals are fresh.

We had dinner here on a Saturday night recently (late June) and our meals were all good. The dining area was very busy and in saying that we probably waited about 30 mins for our meals after ordering (have waited a lot longer at other places). One of my sons had the ribs and he said they were pretty good.... More

Took the children to the Bushland Beach Tavern for dinner a week or so ago as I had heard the place had picked up its game and like to try and support local business. Wrong! The meals were an absolute disgrace. My steak which I paid $36.00 dollars for and ordered med/rare was like cardboard and served with soggy chips.... More
