“A simple drink and a meal”
Review of Jennings Hotel

Attraction details
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

There was no lime to make a scotch, lime and soda (apologies), and no Black Ice, so in the land of beautiful Granite Belt wineries I asked for a Shiraz. The barman said that they had a "Shiraz-like red", but he "didn't drink it", and when he couldn't offer anymore information I said I'd pass. The next a lady comes out to inform me that out of all the vineyards in the district, this one red wine - which was unlabelled - was the only wine that they kept. That said I thought that it must be good so I'd better try it. Well you know when a bottle had been opened and sat too long, and far from a rich, velvety red I was hoping for, I got a tart, vinigary offering that was definitely on the nose. I took a few sips but had to leave it - my mistake. I should have requested a tiny sample first. Next we ordered lamb cutlets with vegetables and waited an eternity for that, also we were given a couple of slices of complimentary garlic bread to compensate. The first piece of lamb however was not cooked properly, it was not pink so much as raw, and the second piece was already on the way out. I declined to eat it. My partner's was the same. The vegetables were beautiful though, so we ate them and decided to leave. A lady asked in passing how everything was and I simply replied that I didn't like the wine at all. Her reply? "Well I don't drink it"!!!!! As for the overall decor and condition of that place - bring in Gordon Ramsay!!!!!

It's a pub but you can not buy takeaways and the service is appalling. You have to wait anywhere up-to 15 minutes to get served sometimes.

We stayed in our motorhome in the paddock behind the hotel. Liesel is the best cook - the rump steak and vegies is divine. Lyn the publican makes you very welcome, part of the family. The regular locals are very welcoming and always ready for a chat.

Liesel cooked the best chicken schnitzel, chips and veges. Moist and large portion. Free camp site behind pub on lovely large area with trees. Try their local beer it's also a good drop
