The Thai menu is quite comprehensive with good flavours and presentation. The venue is very interesting in a lovely old historic building with a great outdoor dining area large enough for most celebrations/functions. Only negative was rather slow service with meals arriving one at a time with long periods in-between although the staff were all very pleasant and helpful.

We ate here several times during our stay in Chiltern, and sampled both the normal and the Thai menus. Would thoroughly recommend both, portions were generous and the quality could not be faulted, the Thai flavours especially were easily the best we have had outside of major city restaurants and great value. If your in the area pay them a... More

A group of us ate here recently. Thai food was on this night and it was very nice. Plenty of flavor. I had the Jungle curry. Quite spicy but very good.

We were advised that Wednesday night was Thai food night. As we both love Thai food we decided to give it a go. I had the massaman curry and my partner the green thai curry. Both were very good. The only down side was the limited selection of wine.

Welcome was good, staff attentive, meal great, we ate inside but there is a large outdoor area for large groups,or what ever, your choice. We went at a quiet time of year end November beginning December. Meals are alternated between Asian and Aussie during week check before you go 2 different chefs.

Aah, how fortunate. Upon returning to my old home town the time was ripe to "eat out". We ventured to the Ironbark Tavern (love the name) and yes, it was Thai night. I couldn't envisage this sort of fare being served up all those years ago, but hey, the old home town's not the same and I was more than... More

Visiting relatives from Brisbane meant dining out and as luck would have it - it was Thai night! The food was excellent (again) and the drinks were very cold. The service was great and we all thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Then on another night on the same trip our guests insisted on another Thai experience at the Ironbark and... More

One of the old buildings in this former gold mining town of the 1800's it has been renovated to provide warmth, charm and excellent hospitality. A crackling log fire and comfy sofas if you just want a drink, or lovely innovative dining area for some great food. The menu is not extensive, but try the "chefs specials" and you will... More

Ironbark Tavern have an interesting concept - half the week dinner menu is Thai food and the other half is usual pub fare. We were there on a Thai night and not being particularly familiar with Thai food had a few questions. Staff were very helpful with their recommendations. Serving sizes were very generous. Plenty of customers on the night... More
