I have found the meals at the Russell Tavern to be excellent consistently for a long time and recommend them to anyone looking for a good meal in Dalby.

Visited Russell Tavern for dinner while in Dalby recently. Staff here were attentive and friendly. Large, well appointed dining area. We chose the "Seniors" meals from the extensive menu. For a very nominal fee, we had the choice of one of about six main meals, which included desert and coffee. If you are a "senior" dining in Dalby, and looking... More

We have eaten here numerous times and the food and service are always good. The only time we had to wait over an hour for food the tavern was absolutely packed with several large groups. We had booked the function room but there was only 1 staff member taking orders so the queue to order was very long.

It's not a bad pub but it's not the best pub in town. We had dinner here after work. It was a pleasant experience, the staff were nice and the food was average. I'd recommend it but wouldn't tell you to go out of your way to eat there.

Dalby is surrounded by cattle country so we were confident of getting a good steak dinner. This pub was recommended to us by a couple of local people. We ordered eye fillet to ensure the tenderest meat but both steaks were overcooked and dry. Disappointing for a place specializing in steak. Given its popularity maybe bad luck on this occasion?

My first introduction to the Russell's food was Christmas lunch, which for a $80 dollar a head smorgasbord was average. Returned with my family early January to celebrate my mothers 70th birthday. I ordered a dish they called hook and horn, priced at $36 I was looking forward to a restaurant quality meal, or at least a decent sized meal.... More

I dined here recently for lunch with my husband and thoroughly enjoyed it. The menu was quite extensive and provided many different choices. Our food was delivered in a timely manner and staff were friendly and efficient. Prices are reasonable too. We visited over the Christmas period and the tavern was decorated beautifully. I would definitely recommend.

Went with family and we ordered a variety of meals from Seniors Lasagne to chicken salad & barramundi. All meals were good and though barra was not cheap it was tasty. Ordered coffee which was not worth it both cups came out cold and not that great heated either so wouldn't recommend that. Service was quite good, though not fast... More
