Have not dined in here since before COVID. Not overly busy Saturday night. Security barking rudely to see ID on entry (no issues good RSA) whilst swigging around a drink in his mouth and wearing Everlast jacket. Other security guard on side entry leaning on table yawning in his baseball cap. Got the Thousand Guineas Porterhouse - gristly and definitely not worth the $45. Only about half was edible at medium/rare. Gravy was amazing. Chips good. Salad is lettuce leaves, onion and cucumber. Originally sat down at table on carpet area but very strong smell of vomit. Moved tables. Three kids were running amuck doing laps of the dining room, crawling and screaming - surprised they did not bowl over a customer. The young female waiter bringing out food was delightful. Smile and friendly and saved this place from a one star review.

I've always wanted to go into the Hawthorn Hotel, I've seen some negative reviews regarding food and service, but I wanted to try it for myself. I had a really pleasant time there, I had a lovely young lad bringing my drinks out to me, he was really lovely and always had a smile on his face! I didnt realise that cocktail hour stops at 9:30 (roughly around that time, cant remember exactly) I went upto the bar and they were even nice enough to make me some cocktails a few minutes past which was awesome! The food was good and it was overall a really nice meal and night! So I'm not quite sure about the negative reviews and why people have had such bad experiences? The place was clean, give it being busy for parma and trivia night. Overall a really good job, thanks Hawthorn Hotel 🥂

My favourite pub. Excellent atmosphere, great service and friendly staff. I can’t recall his name, but the guy who serves is just amazing. He provides excellent customer service and constantly checks in on me to make sure I am enjoying my time. I think part of the reason why I love this place so much is due to his impeccable customer service. I love eating at this spot, as the food is so delicious and the vibes are immaculate. My favourite dish is the roast beef paired with jus served with slaw and corn. Unbelievably filling and delicious. Again, I absolutely love the Hawthorn Hotel and it is my absolute favourite pub.

Have been coming in the last few Saturdays to watch the footy with some mates and we always have a good time. Staff are super friendly and accomodating and we usually grab the punters pack which is amazing value. They show the game on a big screen outside which is awesome. Food is great value for money (I always get the parma) and we look forward to the rest of the footy season at The Hawthorn Hotel!

Great value for money, especially the Sunday roast with lots of roasted vegetables on the side. The sides are advertised as bottomless but we were given so many vegetables on a separate plate that we couldn't even finish, so we never need to use that option.
