Food was great, but the service was terrible too bad the quality of food did not match the quality of the service.

The dining room team made it pretty obvious they wanted us to leave around 930pm. Our booking was 830pm. Seemed a bit rushed.
Food and wine fantastic. Staff at downstairs bar were really helpful with wine selections.

I can't speak more highly of this venue. I did not research on the menu prior to dining and was stunned at the outstanding menu, so many interesting dishes to choose from. Everything was simply delicious. The Venison Tartare a stand out and the White Tomato Risotto. The staff are so friendly and attentive you couldn't ask for anything more. I'll definitely be back.

The MoL has always been a good bet for a great pub meal. It seems to have gone off the boil a bit recently unfortunately. The music is far too loud in the dining area (as almost every review says - listen to the punters!) and the food was far too salty. Hopefully the latter a one-off, but the noise needs sorting out. The music adds nothing. Why not try a few weeks without it in the dining area and see what people say?

The music was too loud which made it very difficult to talk to each other.
There was also no Reid lung on the wine list

For years this has been my number 1 favourite establishment for atmosphere, service and exceptional honest and humble food. Our recent dinner with a group did not disappoint. Those juicy chicken skewers, the braised lamb, schnitzel, kingfish and duck cigars....WOW! ON POINT! Thanks again Marquis and staff for always delivering!

Fabulous food and great vibe,
We were the oldest there and struggled a little with the music level as we were too close to the speakers.
You guys were kind enough to put it down a little for us.
Was nice to to have to yell over the table.
Thanks again for a great meal and evening, will be back!!

This is a pub of considerable charm with a good vibe and a "locals" feel. The food is very good whilst remaining in the higher end pub category i.e. it is not overly fancy or expensive. Good choice of beers. Ideal for a group of friends catching up.

Food took a long time to arrive and the menu no longer has the cheese burger ! Wafting smell from the toilet upstairs could be smelt in the downstairs bar.

Best to take a group to ensure you are given a good space. The staff are energetic and good. The food is very homely and passes. Go for a casual experience/drink before heading to another nearby venue.
