    Greeted very slowly and not very warmly. Our table was placed right next to the kiddies room even though we had no kiddies - a group of retirees. The Fork booking system should provide for a an option of location of table - e..g Window, no window, no kiddies room etc

    Doncaster Hotel

    Hi Con, thanks for the feed back. We will certainly look into the fork system to see if this can be recified. We do hope you enjoyed the rest of the evening and come visit again soon.

    On a 41 degree day in Melbourne, the temperature inside the venue at Doncaster Hotel was in excess of 30 degrees. The airconditioning was broken!

    The restaurant had good setup and we sat near playground. The food choice was extensive, kids menu very very impressive. Prices were fair. The only negative was our food came out at very different times. The kids and seniors food came and then the rest about 25 minutes later. The restaurant was busy, but bit weird having half food out so much later. We would go back.

    Although there was an initial wait for service at the register once the young gentleman was there he apologised in the delay. All was forgotten as he was attentive, helpful, courteous and read out our order to ensure it was correct. Although relatively busy the meal wait was not long and our group of 9 enjoyed their meals and advised that the flavor and servings were good. Considering 3 of the meals were for Seniors and the remaining a mix of meals for meat eaters and vegetarian it was pleasing. The same gentleman picked up our dishes and was friendly and courteous to ask if we had finished our meals before clearing these from the table. We missed the wholemeal rolls but besides that we enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere and will come again.

    Been here quite a few times and the food has always been good. But last night's Christmas roast special was awful. Top tip: Stick with what's on the main menu and avoid the Christmas Special.

    We are regulars here however on this night the wait times for our meal was excessive. If the place is busy and understaffed they should really have informed us so that we did not wait so long and we could have gone somewhere else. It took just under an hour to get our meals and the blond haired lady was unapologetic advising that they had 50 people to serve that night. It appears that a function was being held. If they knew this then the restaurant should be more prepared and properly staffed. We arrived at 7:45pm and finally finished at 9:15pm. On top of this they got my order wrong and I ended up going direct to the kitchen to get my order fixed. Some people who ordered the same time as us got their meals about half an hour before we did. It was advised that one of the dishes we ordered needed more time to cook. Again if we had been informed it was going to take so long we could have selected something else. Normally with this place the food is good and the service is efficient. However on this night (only a Tuesday night and not a Friday or Saturday) the place failed to live up to standard.

    This was the worst meal I’ve had in a long time, prawn linguine was over cooked and swimming in sauce. When I order pasta, I want to taste pasta not sauce, I could not eat it. Steaks were thin and over cooked. We ordered dessert and coffee for something to eat, coffees came out 15 minutes after the cakes were eaten, not a pleasant experience.

    Nice local pub for a family dinner. Plenty of room and meal choices with a fair range of wine too.
