Barramundi dish, fish was small but nice but one of the three mussels was closed and the tomato & capsicum base was really just tinned tomatoes. $34 should have been made from fresh tomatoes.....

This is a really good pub in every respect. Great meals, excellent service and an upbeat atmosphere combine for a great experience. The Yard Bar area is my favourite with the smoker and picnic tables.

There were a lot of flies!
It would be great if we could choose to allocate our drinks bill with the food bill so that we could pay once for the whole meal, drinks, tip, etc. Rather than having to pay multiple times.

Our family always has our birthday dinners here. The kids zone is great for the little ones & flat easy access for the older ones.

Great local venue. Meals were very good - more like restaurant style than a normal pub meal. We enjoyed sitting in the pleasant outside garden area.

The food was not cheap so expected something special. Small portions for price and not great. Too noisy a little like a school canteen. Lots of little children running around screaming at 7:30 at night. Obviously just not my cup of tea.

Food was over cooked and offer of a drink in its placeI thought was not sufficient as food was a little bit pricey for what it was! Staff were friendly and nice atmosphere.

Had a wonderful night catching up with friends here. I had booked online and had selected seating inside but as it was a lovely night we asked to sit outside and no problems in changing. All staff were friendly and extremely efficient. The five of us were really happy with our meals. I had the Korean spicy beef bowl which was AMAZING. Others in party had beer battered flathead, pasta with crab and two different pizzas. Very good value meals. The courtesy bus was a huge bonus. Thank you!

Parklands Tavern is a great restaurant for groups, families and even couples. We love celebrating special occasions at the Tavern. The menu has a wide range of options and their chicken parmigiana are the best. We love the homemade coleslaw that accompanies the dish and the chips are crisp on the outside and heavenly on the inside. Our sons love the pizzas and when are children were younger, they enjoyed choosing a tasty meal from the kids menu. Staff are always smiling and friendly and service times are excellent.

Parkland Tavern has a diverse modern menu with fresh ingredients without the typical "pub fare".
My spouse is vegetarian and she also finds good dishes to eat. The venue is modern, clean and gives a feeling of friendly community. Although the tavern does have poker machines I was amazed that you can't hear them at all. They also have a very nice beer garden area, perfect for a sunny afternoon.

For the amount of money you pay for your meals I expect better seasoned dishes. With all the competition out there with new restaurants I would’ve thought the standard of taste would of been better. I had the calamari salad, way too much lettuce and citrus to balance. Ratio was all wrong.

Unfortunately one of our party was very dissatisfied with her meal.
a) her meal did NOT come out with her partners meal and had to be chased up
b) medium steak was ordered and it came out well done
c) steak was returned and another ordered - this also took a long time in coming, so the order was cancelled.
All of the other patrons at our table had well and truly finished their main meals and onto dessert and coffee.
A refund for the meal was given and the meal that had finally been cooked was provided in a take away container. Therefore the said patron did not get to have her lunch.

We ordered the Special, Pork Belly and I ordered the Chicken Schnitzel. The pork belly wasn't even pork bell, it was a shoulder round roast and there was no crackling with the order.. so disappointed. The chicken I had was so dry I could hardly cut it.

I had a $50 voucher and when i went to pay the staff said the voucher wasn't on my card. Later i checked on their card machine and it was there. I showed the staff and they did refund me but it was such a hassle.

A bit disappointed with the meals that had a salad as the option. The salad consisted of ONLY lettuce leaves with a bit of dressing. Really, since when did a salad consist ONLY of lettuce. Not a morsel of any other salad produce. Very disappointing.
One patron had a burger and removed the cucumber because of the thickness in which it was cut - it was at least 7mm thick, a much better cut for a salad than on a burger.

We had a great experience - the food was lovely and the service was great. Would be perfect if there was a playground for kids to burn off some energy though! Will definitely go again.

Hi , four of us that dined Saturday night we’re absolutley disgusted in the meals , we order chicken parmigiana, the chicken was so dry ( unbeatable) very little cold chips with a poor tasting coleslaw . Waited over an hour for meals . Complained to staff to get a manager , which he failed to do . I’ll be calling ASAP Terrible experience sorry .

We’ve enjoyed every visit. Unfortunately, this visit didn’t quite run smoothly as 2 out of 5 meals came out 20 minutes apart. Staff were very apologetic. Very busy night, quite noisy inside but lovely and peaceful outside. Friendly staff - will happily go back again though. These things happen!

Great night except for having to wait 30 mins in the order queue . Either open up a second register or stop people pushing in the Queue.
