We accidentally ended up here after the 16's lunch hours weren't convenient to us and we are so glad it worked out that way! The food here was delicious, we ordered bread, chicken wings, burgers, seafood and steak and every one of us was happy with our meals! This is a little hidden gem we didn't know about, but we...

Good pub food ... bit over priced but the staff are friendly and helpful, and it's lovely to sit on the balcony and watch the sun set ...

Ordered a blue steak and it came out med, would have sent it back but trying to get the attention of the staff was useless, clearly untrained staff. Wont be going back in a hurry, They can't even cook a basic steak.

The Gunyah Hotel has recently re-opened after a huge fire almost destroyed the premises. We have eaten at the Gunyah Hotel Restaurant/Bistro many times in the past prior to the fire so we're keen to try again after re-opening. The Hotel's restaurant has a fantastic view of Lake Macquarie but faces west so on a hot summer twilight with a... More

Had a fantastic dinner prawn chorizo linguine delicious! First time there. So happy it was close to our hotel. Great location water views over Lake Macquarie. We were expecting restaurant at our hotel but closed so we were relieved to see Gunyah Hotel walking distance 😀😀

I've frequented The Gunyah for a few years and have always enjoyed the friendly service and value for money tasty meals. This latest visit after a longish interval was disappointing. Despite the friendly service and revamped decor and furniture the food was the let down... Will wait for a for a few more positive reviews before we return

Went there for lunch on a Friday. However was disappointed. The salmon had clearly been frozen for too long and the Chips over cooked. Very noisy as the staff were moving furniture around right at lunch time. This use to be a good place to go, but sadly has gone down hill in the last 18 mths.

We attended as a family group to celebrate a birthday. We were all given separate numbers when we ordered which probably was the reason why most of us had finished and had our plates cleared before two meals had even come out. I noticed other tables were all on the one order. My meal of maple glazed salmon was delicious... More
