    I’ve been to this tavern multiple times and have always been met with really warm and welcoming staff and wonderful service. The layout and general ambiance of the restaurant is cosy, and (unless incredibly busy) easy to navigate around. Many of my visits to the tavern have been for lunch services and haven’t had huge numbers of customers. My most recent however was for an extremely busy Friday dinner service. My partner and I both ordered different chicken dishes. Unfortunately the chicken was extremely undercooked. I do think that the kitchen may have been overwhelmed and rushing with the numbers of patrons. I would have been more than happy to wait an extra 10/15 minutes for cooked chicken. Overall, I really enjoy this place. I do think the food on this most recent visit was a one-off and I do not want to discourage others from trying this place out. It may just be a matter of heading in on a quieter day :)

    FGT is a regular favourite and a gem of a tavern. It never fails to deliver on value for money whether it is food or service. The staff are wonderful.

    This restaurant is a local one, the staff were attentive, the table setting could’ve been christmassy but I found my fish and chips Senior meal was poor. The fish was chewy like it had been microwaved, bought from Aldi and heated up, the salad was a mix of salad and coleslaw dumped on the plate dry and had to fork my way through it to find the dressing hidden underneath the coleslaw. Not for recommending.

    I am a regular at Ferny Grove Tavern and consistently enjoy my time for the excellent service and great elevated pub food! Last evening was absolutely wonderful. The tavern appeared to be short staffed but we were served perfectly so that was much appreciated. The food was awesome last night! Thank you!! Keep going please. Ben, manager, you are a real asset and we are lucky to have you at a place visited regularly.

    Sometimes the food is great sometimes not so, this experience was great. However the wine particularly champagne/sparkling is just rubbish and overpriced.

    Ferny Grove Tavern

    Hi there! We are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us. The sparkling wine situation is rather unfortunate, we hope we can offer a more enjoyable experience next time you dine with us. We look forward to having you in again soon. Kind Regards,

    Once again a pleasure to dine at FGT. We ordered garlic and mozzarella paddle bread, a new item for us which was delicious. And lemon pepper calamari as a mains. This is always outstanding and boy do you serve a huge portion!! Not your fault but we didn't stay long as there was a very noisy group last Saturday night :( But we will always treat FGT as our favourite dine in.

    Food was good, however when we ordered our meals we were told it was half hour wait which we were prepared to cop. It was over an hour until our meals arrived - disappointing and no apology for the delay in the meals.

    Ferny Grove Tavern

    Hey Annon, Sorry you've had this experience while dining with us. Some times when we do get busy there can be a wait, but not apologizing isn't in our standard, so I will discuss with staff and remind them of our standard. Hoping next time you are in, we have improved on this. Thankyou, Management

    Mains took nearly two hours to reach the table, one meal was cold, Caesar salad with steak was uninspiring - lacked dressing also.

    Ferny Grove Tavern

    Hey Annon, Sorry you've had this experience while dining with us, if you could contact the hotel, we would love to see what we can do to make it up to you.

    We had a wonderful evening at the Tavern. The food was exceptional, truly a treat. Two of us selected the evening’s special of 250g rump with a topper of calamari. The steak was cooked perfectly to how we asked for it and the calamari was awesome! The chips and lovely salad complimented the meal. Your service is always good. Warm, friendly staff and great timing. Ty FGT! I will be back as always.

    Ferny Grove Tavern

    Hey Shipra, That is awesome to hear! Hope to see you again soon!

    Been here before and food was good previously but this time we were highly dissapointed. They weren't busy at all but meals took and hour to come out. High pub prices but food wasn't worth it. Steak very thin, overcooked and dry. Entrees not worth the money ($13 for 3 chicken wings and a few green leaves). Dining area too small. They obviously try to fit as many tables as they can in the area they have but it feels cramped

    Chef was extremely put out by our dietary requirements. We thought this surprising as we had specified there were two diners with food allergies. Also, we simply asked what was gluten and dairy free, which we assumed he knew because he had just prepared the food. Also, the food was not labelled, which forced us to enquire.

    Ferny Grove Tavern

    Hi Rachel, Thank you for taking the time to review. We use all reviews to help improve our service. If i remember, you had a table for the buffet breakfast. A message was given to the kitchen stating allergies. I will chat with the chef to see if this can be avoided in future. We do hope to see you again one day. Have a good day. Regards JAnelle AM

    The service was beautiful, I’m the director of a disability service in Ferny Hills and the way we were treated was fabulous. Having to be able to take our young adults out and give them the experience others share with no trouble was just great. Well done to you and your beautiful staff.

    Hi Claire, We are so happy that your recent visit was a pleasant one for all involved. We try our hardest to provide an atmosphere that would suit anyone. We definitely look forward to the next visit. Regards Management

    It was good parking. The staff were friendly but they seemed understaffed It wasn’t to noisy. So we could easily hear each other talking. The food was ok but just A little more effort would have made a big difference.

    Meals and service were very good. The hotel is located next to Ferny Grove train station, so it would be very convenient for locals.

    Not very impressed Unfortunately. Four of us in our group ordered steaks which were either under or over cooked compared to what we asked for. One steak was luke warm, and the chips were not fresh and also not hot enough. The Caesar salad was on the soft/soggy side. The indoor playground for the kids was great, and the free kids meals on a Saturday night were good too.
