Food was mediocre, my penne serving was tiny and there was fake cheese on the potatoe gems.

Was there for a mid-week pizza and drink - and was not disappointed. Great selection of drinks and the pizzas, though strange combinations, were delicious.
Looking forward to checking BAS out again soon - It looks perfect for a Friday night!

Awesome atmosphere with very cool as the tic within the place. Unintentionally went on a night where they had $7 pizzas and $5 sides specials, so massive win on the value front. (It was a Tuesday btw) and it was all delish! Staff were very friendly. Highly recommend. Will be back for sure.

Everything was great except the gluten free pizza. Quite disappointing, was not tasty and was undercooked and a terrible consistency. One of the worse bases I’ve had. My friends pizzas looked excellent, and I had very high expectations for here, but was quite disappointed. The service, interior and drinks were great however (although a tad pricey for what they were).

Responded on 28 January 2021

Hi Lily I am sorry to hear that your experience was not great in terms of your Gluten Free Pizza - we spent considerable time at the outset in regards to finding a great option for customers with Gluten Intolerance and we have had great feedback over the years as to how suitable and tasty these are for a GF option. In this instance, I am sorry it did not meet your expectations - however yes, being a GF product, it will be different to our usual pizzas. Thank you for your feedback.

Loved it, just had some IT issues submitting orders online, which is now required, on their end.
Also downloadable menu had a jug of Pimms on it, but once ordering from their ipad this wasn't listed. Loved it otherwise

The best non-contact bar/dining experience I’ve had since hospo opened back up!

Ordering and paying using the QR code menu was a breeze and super convenient.

The cocktails were great, and the Napoli sauce on the pizzas was standout!

Front off house staff were quite rude when we walked in. The guy wearing the snood on spoke to us very aggressively.. and told us to wear a face mask. Joke was he was wearing a snood not a face mask.. practice what you preach m8!

Had to wait over 10 minutes when we arrived as they had no idea where to sit us.. even though there were empty spots everywhere.

Would not come back or recommend this place to anyone.

Food was great.
We drank the house beer which was pretty good.
My reservation was lost despite it being done online and confirmed the day before, however they still found us a table.
Waiters took a while to check to see if we wanted to order drinks or food, but the food and drinks arrived promptly.

This could be a great venue and good food for a casual get together. Ruined by poor service from unfriendly staff.
When we asked if one of our drinks had been missed- got a surly “ its coming!” Orders came out in a haphazard fashion, bottle of prosecco room temp but placed in an ice bucket.
A real shame.
We were looking forward to a night out after lockdown. Felt like we were a total imposition on them.
Everyone is understanding of the covid rules- however we were spoken to like were imbeciles or naughty school kids. I don’t recommend this venue. Unless you like an evening of being treated like sh*t.

Food is always good. We ordered the share platter but did not have available which was a bit disappointing although we understood that things take time to get organised as just opened.
