Very disappointed in the table service, waited over half an hour just to order food and this is after asking someone twice that we were waiting to order.

Fairly good menu but very noisy when we sat outside, the table next to us was very loud which made it difficult to hear each other speaking. Food was very nice and the service was also very good.

This used to be a great pub, but it is now overrun by young persons making a lot of noise and allowing their children to run around screaming.

They forgot the pizza which was bought out after everyone else had finished and it was my son's birthday so disappointing. They did not ask if any one was anyone vegan so 2 of us almost didn't order anything and we were thinking of leaving without ordering. Apparently there was a vegan menu but you have to ask for it.

Parklands Tavern

Thank you for your feedback which we appreciate. We're sorry to hear your pizza arrived late. Generally, people with special dietary requirements will advise us of this and we try to accommodate their requests rather than us having to ask every patron who visits. We do have a special dietary menu available on our website and our staff are more than happy to provide this upon request.

We had a good night for our daughters 18th. Sat down at 530pm and were immediately asked if we wanting to order food then though ? After a drink we thought they would come back but after over 30 minutes of no service I went up and asked for service. Food came quickly which was great. Staff nice just too busy on a Monday with not enough staff.

Had dinner out and drinks with my two bestie’s Thursday night , food was absolutely delicious, table service was fantastic, this is our local and we continue to go out at parklands because from the moment we walk in we are so well looked after and service is amazing . I love the atmosphere, the menu and the friendly staff and service. It’s my number one place to go to enjoy a few drinks and great food .

My fillet steak was very good and cooked to perfection. We sat outside under a heater which was great on a cool night. There was live music which was good but I guess I’m getting too old to enjoy being in a noisy venue that prohibits having a conversation at the table.
