The menu is very limited but the food is good. I still can’t get my Head around why we have to pay so much for a beer when you can literally see where it is brewed. No transport, no packaging required!!!!

There is also a range of wines and the usual spirits The bar service was a little slow inititially but that could be because we arrived at 5.30 pm and they might not have been fully staffed, as the service speed picked up later. Our food came out rapidly after ordering, was perfectly cooked and very tasty. I highly recommend this venue and we will definitely be back.

Unfortunately over the Easter long weekend we had almost every table request to be near the playground - we did try our best to keep all tables happy! It is also noted that requests made on OpenTable will be done whenever possible - but there is no guarantee. For the future, always feel free to call our friendly team and that way all of your requests can be guaranteed! Cheers!

Unfortunately our specials roll over weekly, so when they sell out - they sell out! This is to keep a fresh selection of delicious food for our guests! If you would like to have a chat further about your experience I would love for you to email me on {email}. Cheers!

Unfortunately this time of year is extremely hard to bargain with in terms of the hot or cold! And whilst we do our best to keep our venue at a temperature fit for our guests, sometimes Mother Nature has her way. I would love to have a further chat with you about the issues you experienced and how we can resolve them. If you could please email me at [email] that would be great. Cheers!

They have some great food options suitable for coeliacs, however no gluten free beer unfortunately. You can order all your food and drinks from a QR code on your table which was awesome. We booked and attended on a Saturday evening and it was very busy, and we were asked to move to a different area whilst we were still drinking. This dampened our experience but overall the food, drinks and service was excellent and I would definitely return.

The Modus offering is a fantastic experience. The team has really hit a home run with the venue aesthetic, menu, and service. The Beer deserves its own review but know this, if you're on the fence, head in and try the selection. Something for every palate.

So I waited in the queue at the bar. As my husband was still driving around looking for a park I went to the ladies room, as I went around into the hall I was confronted with 3 men at the urinal, no door. I was disgusted! then when we received our meals, my husband received the wrong meal. By the time he received the correct meal I had finished mine. so in all it was a very unpleasant lunch that cost us more than $80

I would especially like to apologise for the urinal - it has an auto-close feature that should ensure it stays closed at all times but it is quite clear that something wasn't working that day. I would love to follow up with you on this and have more of a chat around what we can do to fix your not so great experience. If you would like to send me through an email at [email attached] that would be fantastic.
