Where do I start, this restaurant/venue was a shambles. We had booked for 8 people (a week or more in advance) to have dinner prior to watching a game of rugby at aami park .
Despite having a dinner reservation and turning up 10 mins early, we were instructed to wait for what would have been over 30-45 minutes in a queue that snaked around the block.
Door staff were rude and lacked understanding. We will not be booking with the corner hotel again, as they showed an inability to meet their basic commitment re: our reservation.
Poor form and a lousy way to treat your clientele.

Long queue to even get in despite booking and long wait for food. It was a rugby night, but still wouldn't have expected a 90min wait for food.

Food was very good in the end though!

Poor beer selection, one dark beer in the entire "range". Chicken burger greasy and full of fat. Would, will not, return for food. Only band room might get me back.

Wasn't informed about being moved around the corner to mexican section. This was not what we where expecting. If we wanted mexican we wouldve booked a mexican location. Food was poor. Further information would have been appreciated.

Worst service ever. Staff had bad attitude and acted as if they were doing a favour by serving us. Also poor selection of food and drinks as many things were just listed as sold out. Was made to wait while they ‘cleaned’ our table - it was wet with drinks spilt all over one side when we were brought over. Weren’t allowed to move to a free table as it was ‘reserved for clients’ (who fyi never showed). We are paying customers, are we not clients as well?

We came here for Mother’s Day with our newborn baby. The table we booked wasn’t appropriate so they moved us with no stress. Service was great! Fish and chips not so much. But hey, you win some you lose some. Worth it just for the venue. Would recommend for those with bubs.

We go to the corner regularly but in our last visit we waited over an hour for our food and while waiting put a reserved notice on our table for the next sitting giving us half hour to eat something that hadn’t turned up yet
