Nice place but over priced. Waited an hour to 1. Have order taken 2. Be served our meal. Steaks were under cooked, Pumpkin Salad wasn’t worth $27.

Sarah who was our waitress for the evening was lovely. Nothing was a problem.
Very engaging and fun.
We couldn't fault the food.
I would like to know the name of the gentleman who was the live musician serenading us. He was very good.
We will return!

Took about 15-20 mins for someone to take our order. Asked for two glasses of tap water which we would still be waiting for if my husband didn’t go over to the bar to ask again - it was supposed to be table service.

Amazing tapas selections and generous portions. Super friendly and helpful staff. Great beer selection, delicious cocktails.

Dog friendly in the alfresco area (covered and protected from rain, has heaters and fans). Very easy to book a table.

Live music on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Free-to-join membership for discounts and birthday offers.

We ate the Chicken Quesadillas, Halloumi Bites and the Calamari Bites. You can choose any of their rotisserie meats for the Quesadillas.

Excellent only thing is not enough normal height tables inside as the high ones aren’t always suitable for older people.

Our group of 4 really enjoyed the rotisserie plates - pork, lamb, brisket & chicken. Good selection of drinks, good service and good food made for a great night. We’ll all be back!

We shared the Rotisserie for 2 which was excellent! It was very cold in the enclosed area and no doubt it was colder in the "outside" areas which at least had gas heaters. Another downside was the children continually running in and out of the restaurant! They obviously belonged to the staff (being baby-sitted) however we believe this distracts from this establishment's ambiance!

It was the first time we dined at the Malt shovel tap house, and we very pleased with everything, we had the rotisserie pork and brisket with 2 sides and cleaned the plate, it was cooked to perfection, the service was friendly and informative and the beer was great
would recommend for sure, a good feed guaranteed

Received absolutely wonderful service from the time I arrived right through lunch from the friendly and ever so polite waiter.
Only complaint was the steak on the steak sandwich was tough and chewy, making it hard to eat.

So glad you had a great experience, gouge. We will pass your feedback about the steak onto our kitchen team. See you soon!
