The bar and wait staff were friendly and attentive, plus the food was great. We sat by the open fireplace which was so lovely on a cold night.

On Sundays there is no table service, so you have to order drinks and food at the bar, and unfortunately, we were seated under the speakers for the sound system, so it was hard to have a conversation across the table as it was very hard to hear what friends were saying. The dogs loved getting many pats and cuddles, the food was brilliant and I loved the nulled wine.

The best value bottomless brunch I’ve ever been to. The atmosphere was great and the drinks were constantly flowing - highly recommend!

Good modern energy in the Rochy! Great to see it turn around after a few quiet years. Looking forward to heading there outside of a special event (Was there for Superbowl Monday)

Service was appalling, food was inedible (2 of our party were sick after it) and pub quiz was average. This place used to do great Indian food with an awesome selection of beers on tap but it’s gone seriously downhill. Don’t bother.

Excellent service and very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and great portion sizes... the bottomless brunch was rather alcohol less though, they were quick with the drinks but it was really just two hours of fruit juice! The place was a fun space and looked great. Would come back for the food but not the bottomless brunch.

Had the porterhouse steak special, and instead of medium rare, came out closer to blue rare. Side of baked potato and broccoli was a bit basic. Didn't fit the $30 'special' price.
Service was very good though

A lovely sunny Sunday afternoon spent in The Rochey's beer garden. We got along really well with all the staff who were down to earth, attentive, friendly and funny. A few of the drinks we tried to order were unavailable which was a shame but didn't dampen the overall experience. We both participated in the 2 course set menu, between us ordering the chargrilled cauliflower, chorizo chipolata, roast chook, fish of the day and sharing the 'choc & pash' dessert. All tasty but the cauliflower was TO DIE FOR.
