Customer service was excellent. My sons were constantly complaining about an irritating buzz sound. I could hear it at times but not as loudly as they did. The pizzas had little pineapple on them. I liked the layout of the tavern. I didn’t like sitting so close to other tables.

The staff were so friendly and the service we received was outstanding.
Our schnitzel we had was a decent size, so delicious and great value for money.
Always lots to choose from on the menu as well as a variety of specials offered. Highly recommended.

Great value food - pizza and wings night, my son in law loved the fact that he could choose sides on his meal and he doesn’t eat salad😂, also said the patty was delicious.

There were 2 of us and 1 person received their entree 20 mins after the other one with the main meal.
The entree was thai fish cakes that were bland and could only taste potato and the sauce didn't compliment it at all.
The seafood basket had 2x tiny pieces of fish, 2 prawns, 2 scallops, 2 tiny pieces of calamari, chips and a side salad for $32.
The pasta was only half cooked in the seafood pasta dish
A very ordinary and unpleasant meal.

We were very disappointed. We ordered STEAK Sandwiches minus the bread because you don't have Gluten Free Bread. We were given Roast Meat instead of steak and when they asked how the meal was and we told them they said Oh you should have told us earlier. If you don't have the product and you are substituting it is courtesy to advise people not just give them a second rate substitute. We usually eat there at least monthly and the food is fine, but this time you score a zero as it was not what we ordered - rather a cheap substitute.

Other than not having a seniors menu available, which is difficult when you have an elderly parent who can't eat big meals anymore, it was a good experience. I wanted to get grilled fish for my Mum whose diet is somewhat restricted but wasn't able to get it as apparently everything was pre-crumbed or battered, this is a shame because it made her dining experience less enjoyable.

Service was great - the fellow checked in and was pleasant about timing etc given it was a busy night for them (graduation for St Pats seniors). I do like the BRT - the environment is nice and even though it can be noisy - it is energetic and the food and pricing is good. Kudos to the staff and restaurant for coming back on the scene with the same vibe as I remember it having

Garlic and cheese pizza was just a cheese pizza with aioli. Chicken Parmigiana was dry. Steak was ok but not a lot of flavor. Chips over cooked. Over priced for the type of meals received. Food was the quality you would expect if it was cheap Tuesday. Staff lovely and helpful. The carpeted dining area needs a good makeover. More like a food court with carpet.

Over priced for average pub food with no wait staff. Linng up to order was awkward especially being next to a noisy kitchen. Staff moved furniture next to us and were loud, spoiling our dining experience. While great staff want to clear plates away, it would have been polite for them to wait until the table had finished eating.
