I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

A local institution since 1903, The General Roberts Hotel serves up food and drinks to the families of New Lambton.

The dining area has different daily specials and weekday $13 lunch deals. The hotel has a members program with jackpot draws, raffles and social events. There is a trivia night, weekday happy hours and $3 bubbles in Friday afternoons.

The menu has the usual pub offerings of burgers, pizza and schnitzel but also has duck, gnocchi and pork belly mains. You order and pay at the register but the food is brought to you and drinks are purchased at the adjacent bar. The staff are all young and friendly. The tables are well spaced and there is a happy hum in the dining area.

The crispy skin pork belly ($32) was gluten free and a generous serve of meat accompanied by a honeyed carrot puree, sauteed cabbage and pan seared scallops.

The gnocchi with roast pumpkin, goat's cheese and burnt sage butter ($27) was suitable for vegetarians but could do with a bit more seasoning and the gnocchi was slightly overcooked. The duck dish was $26, very tasty and also gluten-free, the creamy celeriac purée was silky smooth and contrasted nicely with the pickled beets.

The steak was nicely charred and cooked to order and the mash potato was well done and the vegetables were not soggy. If you like, you can have chips or roast potatoes and salad instead. Desserts vary according to the blackboard and cake display cabinet and children's meals are $10.
