Travelled through the beautiful town of Minlaton and decided to stop for lunch. It was a shame to be greeted so poorly by the restaurant staff. It was as if they did not want us there. I really do enjoy the character of the old country pubs but feel the restaurant facilities need to be somewhat exceptable to be called as such. The walls looked as if they haven't been cleaned in a very long time, along with the dated rocky tables and chairs. The male bathroom was also dirty with no effort to clean the wall tiles or windows. In this day and age hygine is of the utmost importance and is certainly lacking in this establishment. Our food was also below average with hair in one of the meals. A skilled chef would go along way. I do not like writting such a review but hope the owners read this and take this on board. It would be great to visit again in the near future and see some positive changes. Customer service is what keeps people coming back!!! Relationships built this way will almost excuse a poor food experience.

Just to top off the day. Was a short trip to check the peninsula out for organised ride later. Country pub. Great. Nice areas for a few drinks. Large dining room with good value meals. Will be back with the club. Cheers Peter Beachy

This is an amazing pub. It has BOTH types of wine - red AND white! And when it comes to red it has the best one ever - it's Yellowtail! Yes, really... There is also a lovely and overpowering fragrance of urine permeating throughout the establishment. If you want this really unique Australian pub experience this place is pretty much impossible to beat. Its restaurant - Sammies is also hard to beat! This restaurant should be immediately put on the heritage list. With the possible exception of its lovely red feature wall the whole place is has been time locked in the late 70s or early 80s and it's likely to remain so. Talking about the 80s - I'm pretty sure that it was the expiration date on the mushroom sauce which accompanied one of the dishes jokingly called a schnitzel. There was also a burger which I'm pretty sure remained unchanged since the cook learnt how to prepare it. Delicious. This a place which the Kerrigans would love - it's so amazing.If it's the only open establishment in 100 km radius and you are hungry I would recommend extending your search area to 150 km. It was singularly and truly the worst Australian food experience I ever had.

We stayed in room one for an overnight stop. It looked a bit grim but was clean and the bed comfortable. The shower was great with good pressure and plenty of hot water. We had an evening meal in the on site restuarant. My partner had Garlic prawns and I had chicken strips with satay sauce. Both meals were perfect. We would stay here again if in the area.

We were passing through Minlaton, Yorke Peninsula after having visited a friend. We decided to stop at the next Pub for lunch, and this was it. Unplanned but a great find. Excellent service, friendly staff and awesome food. We'll be back.
