    Beer was the best we've had in Australia so far on our vacation. Food was good pub-style. Tacos were excellent.

    Servings were disappointingly small for the price. Tacos were small and tasteless, although obviously fresh. Chicken tenders were delicious, but again a tiny serving for the price. Service was wonderful and would definitely return for a drink.

    We had an amazing time here - great beers on tap, great food, and super service! Loved it so much that we came a few times during the long weekend we spent in Launceston. They even had a GF beer on tap for me (yay, TwoBays!) and several safe options on the food menu. If we lived nearby we'd surely be regulars. A must-visit!

    Looking for a great place to eat on a Sunday night in Launceston … then try Saint John Craft Beer. Great burgers and chips, share plates if you want, and a great selection of local craft beers !

    Love St Johns, good value menu with the ability to make gluten free, vegan, vegetarian and a number of other options. Great tasting food, not trying to have to many options but enough for everyone. The choice of beer is second to none in Launceston and wine and other drinks is also varied. Always our go to when in Launceston.

    We booked for standard table, on arrival we were told to just go and find out seats, which were not at a standard table but a tall table. We found it difficult to ask for an alternative because nobody escorted us. The food is mostly burgers and fried chicken and everything was nice but it would be good to be able to get a side salad, limited vegetable dishes available. Bar service was excellent and the standout but the rest was borderline surly and we didn’t feel like we mattered much. I’d go again but with different expectations

    Our group received a not-so warm welcome to the venue, which was a disappointing start as none of us had been there before and we only went there as we had heard good reviews. The food and beverage made up some ground though, great quality. The staff could be a bit more welcoming, that's all.

    Food was amazing! Even though it was a Friday and very busy the food came pretty quickly. Only issue is that they lost my booking and had not reserved a table for us. Luckily there was a free table and there was no stress.

    Great place for beers and food. Booked a table but put on a very small half table against the wall, not very comfortable unfortunately. I’d recommend putting people who booked a spot in a nicer area with more room.
