    We went to Mount Erica for my husband's birthday dinner. Everyone loved their meal, which is incredible for 8 people. (in my family). The food was delicious and plentiful. The staff friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is great and informal.We are definitely coming back.

    If you like high quality pub food serves by friendly staff in a timely manner then this is your place. Cocktails are excellent as is the dessert menu, ambiance is pleasant and not at all noisy like your average pub. It’s laid back but classy.

    Very nice atmosphere and decor, very vibrant on a Saturday night for dinner (pumping music on a weekend evening but haven't found that to be the case at other times). Nice that there are all ages there, from 20 to 30 somethings, parents with young children and older groups. Friendly and attentive staff. Perhaps pricey, but you get what you pay for.

    This was our fourth visit, so we obviously have liked it in the past. However, this visit was a little disappointing. There were four of us in our party. Two ordered schnitzel, one ordered fish and chips and one ordered rotisserie chicken. Four dishes did not arrive relatively simultaneously. The two schnitzels arrived. I asked my husband what the schnitzel like and he said cold, as did the other schnitzel eater. Perhaps it had something to do with the coleslaw (cold slaw??) that was piled directly on top of the schnitzel. Plenty of room on the plate beside the schnitzel for the slaw - then the diner can decide - is it going to go on top or stay beside? But at least the schnitzel was not sitting on a serving of chips as any chips had to be ordered separately, they were not “a given” MUCH later, the fish and chicken arrived, after querying their whereabouts with the waitperson. I had the chicken which was a very generous serving half a chicken However it was floating in just too much gravy. This may suit some people, but I would suggest the gravy is served on the side in a small jug. It was extremely busy - good on them, and it did not affect the service which was very pleasant, although as mentioned previously two of our dishes had to be chased up. I don’t think we will return.

    Had a lovely dinner with my friend here starting with the prawns, main of the market fish of the day which was a perfectly cooked salmon & side of broccolini. Friendly service, great food & nice ambience blended well for a lovely evening. Thank you. Look forward to coming again.

    Lively pub with a small but adequate menu. Food was delicious and service excellent. Wine list extensive. Not the place for a quiet lunch or dinner but tables are spread out and not intrusive of other diners. Would like to come back and try the Sunday Roast which I’ve heard is good value. We were lucky to get the last car spot in carpark. Parking in area is difficult.

    Great pub food. The staff are extremely friendly. We were celebrating my Australian citizenship, and upon knowing the staff decided to provide free champagne glasses. I also liked the ambience and the noise level was low enough that we could hear each other despite the fact that the restaurant was moderately busy.

    Overall steak night is a real treat and good value but please go back to the tangy/bitey dressing on the salad it was a fabulous contrast to the richness of the meat and frittes. Also all four guests noticed steak had some gristle which I have never had before.
