    Steak was amazing, chips average. Great children’s menu with chicken seems fresh rather than reformed which is nice to see. Waiter was great and very helpful as child has dietary restrictions.

    The food we ordered was delightful and the staff were incredible. It was just time it took for our meals to arrive. I’m no expert but being first table that night in the restaurant we didn’t leave for 3 hours. We just made the best of the evening. It won’t stop us going back to give them another go.

    The last time I dined here was 4 months ago with my celiac boyfriend. We absolutely loved everything about it, the food, the service, and the gorgeous venue. Considering we enjoyed our experience so much last time, there was no hesitation in returning last night for a date night. However, we were extremely disappointed. The menus had changed (a seasonal menu change is completely understandable) and service had deteriorated. Boyfriend being a celiac, the new menu had only 1 gluten free option, and when we asked if there were any additional options, we were told “whatever on the menu with GF”, which was just the one item. With such a limited option, we decided to go elsewhere to eat. When paying for our drinks, we were asked how everything was, and when we shared our experience, the staff member seemed so clearly uninterested and dismissive about our feedback. I am aware it is challenging to meet all customers’ dietary requirements, clearly we should have had a look at the menu prior to visiting but we just assumed we’d be going back to the same menu from 4 months ago, but what was more off-putting was how poor the service had become, which is a shame as it’s such a lovely venue. I can’t review the food, as I haven’t had a chance to try anything off the new menu, however, the new food and menus are quite small and extremely difficult to read.

    Great pub restaurant. The food was delicious, the setting is modern, and the service is good. We order the salt and pepper as entrée, prawn pizza and barramundi as main. All of them were delicious but the barramundi was not warm enough especially the potato side. One thing they seriously need to change is the drinks menu because it's too small to read.

    I was quite shocked to read the reviews and was not expecting much but it was a fantastic evening and the service was great. Darby was lovely as well as any of the other staff we encountered. The portions were absolutely huge and the service was speedy but fresh and delish! The only one little downside was that I really wanted a cider but they had no cider options on tap and I wasn't a fan of their bottled ciders but the happy hour prices were great for the mixed spirits and wine options...$5 is hard to beat! If they had a cider option for happy hour it would be my main spot to go for happy hour bargains. All in all I will definitely be back and have already recommended the place to many friends. I'd say the staff who gave bad customer service are long gone as the staff their really were lovely. The portion was that big it sorted me out for my lunch today lol. Highly recommended!

    Went here for lunch with my family. I really liked the modern decor and atmosphere in the dinning room. Order the Barramundi, Spiced Brisket, Rump Steak and Calamari. Everything was fantastic except the steak was a little tough. We were looked after well and promptly particular by our server Normi! Overall a great experience and will definitely come back again!

    Very happy after my first time visiting this place. Customer service from all the staff was exceptional. I had the Chicken Parmigiana, it tasted really good but it just needed a little more temperature, it wasn't quite hot enough. I really like how the staff want feedback whether it's positive or negative from their customer so they can pass it on. I left pretty happy and will definitely visit again.
