Made a booking but no one checked anything at the door (just a sign-in book) or the bar, big groups in the back room, pretty much out of control crowds really. Yet two weeks ago it was all strict and regulated. What happened?

While most was good, my meal didn't come as ordered and the music it always a bit too loud.

To loud to have a conversation inside, outside is nice but not especially vibey. Solid pub overall, could do with a better selection of lager

It seems the restaurant didn’t get our reservation as a table was not available although I received confirmation. We were put into a make shift table setting in a corner where two round tables were pushed together for the three of us. We didn’t feel comfortable eating in that area so we left and went to another restaurant.

The overall vibe was nice and service was quick despite it being busy. However, the lasagna came out cold in the middle. Also on of our plates had someone else’s food stuck to the bottom of it. Also our table reservation was for 2 hours (6:30-8:30pm) and at 8pm they ask us to leave as they had pre booked the table for people at 8 which is not what the booking outlines.

Everything was great, however the house music was so loud that I struggled to hear the two other guests I was with. We were yelling at each other from across our table.

Steak was extremely chewy, vegies looked frozen and mashed potato was refried and had crunchy bits in it.

Otherwise the bar had a nice vibe and staff were friendly...

As the social distancing was in place we were able to have a wonderful meal, in comfort and enjoy a relatively quite environment. The staff were very helpful and friendly
