    The table booked to watch the premier league was the best in the house. Only downside is that when the crowds got busy it was hard accessing drinks and long for drinks to get to us when we ordered them to the table.

    From the moment we arrived we were treated like friends. The older man (possibly duty manager) was friendly happy and quick with a joke. We ordered at the table and drinks arrived promptly. We ordered entrees and mains, which all came at the same time. My meal was missing the mushroom sauce. Bit disappointed there. Mushroom sauce and 2nd beer arrived 20 mins later.

    There were 7 people at our table. Two of us ordered at the bar and the others ordered via the app around 12:35pm. 3 people's meals arrived within an acceptable time. At 1:15pm one of the wait staff were told about the missing meals. One of meals arrived at about 1:25pm, leaving 3 meals missing. I had to get back to the office by 1:30pm and my meal still had not arrived so I requested a refund. The final two meals eventually arrived at 1:45pm.

    Booked for the Sunday Roast. Maybe 10 people in the venue. Asked the staff about the roast and was told “There’s a bit going on today, I haven’t heard anyone in the kitchen talk about a roast so it’s probably not on” Great way to run a business.

    The attitude by the main manager and the staff was terrible! Had a booking for 8 people, Themanager acted and behavaved like we were the buggest inconvenience constatnly watching and pointing to us. which was ironic as the place was dead (hardly suprising after our experience) We ended up leaving after 1 drink and went else where to which we had a much wnjoyable experience. Will not be back!

    What a wonderful venue for us to have a romantic 20th wedding anniversary dinner. Our waitress spoilt us from the moment we arrived until we left. The food was scrumptious and came out quickly. 5 stars all round.

    The food was absolutely fabulous and amazing love love love the food. It started with the entrees which were: 1. Flash fried calamari - flash fried calamari with spiced salt, lime and aioli. 2. Snapper & prawn spring rolls - snapper & prawn spring rolls with chilli, lime dressing. Would recommend both of these entrees looooooooved them. Complements to the chef - 👏👏👏👏 Our meals were fantastic 2 of us had Smokey bbq pork ribs with chips, coleslaw and crispy onions. They were tender and falling off the bone lip smacking beautiful. One had the Beef & Guinness pie with creamy mash potato, seasonal vegetables and another one had Slow cooked lamb shank with root vegetables, creamy mash and broccolini. We were celebrating my Birthday and Graduation and had a fabulous night. The music was great too loved everything and we are definitely coming back and we won’t be alone others want to come and try the food. Thank you for a great night of absolutely fabulous lip smacking food and great music. I would like to complement the chef on the food and the waiting staff who do a great job manuavireng around this amazing place.

    We were met at the entrance and shown to a large table. It was out doors under the canopy on a very rainy night. Chris was very prompt to turn on a heater which made us comfortable. He rattled off a well rehearsed list of drinks which came quickly and our food was ordered and was soon on the table. Everyone was happy with their choice. The food was plentiful good quality. Chris was attentive without being there constantly. A Great night overall.

    Service at the bar was poor considering it was not busy. The gentleman serving us food was attentive. Person at the bar didn’t bother checking our booking, didn’t understand that a half pint should be a pot, not a pint, so gave us two pints. Thought it was an English pub, so surely staff would understand that a half pint is a pot… Managed to change one pint to a pot, which then necessitated a refund, which they would only do in cash, not able to put the money back on our card. Probably an ok pub if you want a night out, but wont be going there for a Sunday lunch again.

    I think you must be paying for the city location. Food was average, steak way overpriced for what was received. Service was pleasant. Some table didn’t have the scan to bring up menu.

    We were all vaccinated and had our IDs and vaccine tick ready but was met with a nasty and rude reception when coming in. My phone was grabbed by the security guard and then he scrolled to look at my tick when it was already up and ready. As well as this they were out of heaps of their meals BY 7PM? and the food was not quality but super expensive. The lighting was terrible and we couldn’t see anything properly and we could barely hear ourselves over the loud music. Our food took 50 mins to an hour to arrive and was cold. Honestly really disappointed with the overall experience.

    First question they ask is " will Chris be there" Chris makes the visit amazing, after the oldies have been in lockdown for 8 weeks they really appreciated his jokes, sense of humour and kindness it cheers them up immensely, he is the highlight of their Sunday lunch. The grandkids think he is hilarious too.

    Was disappointed with the food, have eaten here once before and enjoyed it, but not this time. My daughter and I had the steak asked for med to well done. Starting to eat it was ok but then was very rare half way through. My husband took one to the bar to just let them know, staff seem indifferent after we had tried to persevere was told you can’t eat half a steak and then complain. I took mine home for the dog.
