Gravy and cheese sauce on the side.. mostly steamed and a small serving for the price $20. after we ate went outside to the nearby chippery and had some hot chips there as we... More

Went for desert. Great apple pie and ice cream and custard. Great chocolate brownie with cream ice cream and berry compote. Brownie does have walnuts in it but small pieces. I had a bailey's cameral hot chocolate which was nicer than a normal hot chocolate. Looking at the dinner menu it has a good range of choices and the kids... More

My first meal at a Robbies (I think it's a Canterbury chain?) Had a 'roast of the day' which was a substantial serving of lamb, gravy, roast veges. Others in our group were happy with their meals. Went back a few days later - same great service and good choice of food. Good value for money!

Called in late mid week for evening meal. Kitchen had closed however the girls were very accommodating. We're able to still offer a good range of light meal options. My husband had beef schnitzel with mushroom sauce and I had the pasta of the day (chicken carbonara). Yum yum. Super quick service and very satisfying meal.

Family had a meal here tonight. My partner had a small portion of the Moroccan Chicken which she rated as decent. Our two kids had kids meals, chicken nibbles x 1 and hot dogs x 1 plus chips. They were standard fare - a real positive were the kids packs you could add with a dessert for the kids, puzzles,... More

We had the roast of the day, which was beef, it was so tender. Its like a good home cooked meal, with the added fancy touches. The home cooked apple pie is like granny used to bake. The service was excellent and the atmosphere relaxed.

Walked in and immediately felt comfortable in this English style pub. Three different wait staff waited our table, of which two were excellent! Table was sorted fast and waiter was extremely nice and welcoming. We ordered some drinks to start from the waitress then 5 mins later ordered our food with a different waiter and mentioned our drinks had not... More

We wanted to eat out and we chose Robbie's. We thought the prices and selection of food being served was good. Plus we felt there was a good atmosphere and was easy to talk, especially to friends who unexpectedly arrived.
