    The menu online was not the same as the menu in store, it was significantly smaller. I had people with strict dietary requirements who could only eat a salad because their menu items were no longer being served. The food was also subpar, wouldn’t recommend.

    A very comfortable Pub with the ambience and friendliness of the best beachside Holiday destination Pubs of the north coast. Close your eyes and get a dose of old Byron Bay before it was too hip for its own good.

    We were in town for the Women's World cup and were looking for a spot to watch the 3rd place game. Given that the Matilda's were playing we made reservations at the Balmain. They had our table ready in the bar area which became quite packed by game time. The service was great as they had plenty of staff working behind the bar. The food was decent and we left having had a great evening

    My wife and I took our 3 kids here for dinner and it was very well catered for children 6 to 10 years of age. We had a lovely meal, great pizzas, and delicious swordfish and lamb rump. They also had some great variety of beers on tap and in cans/bottles and my wife enjoyed the wine. I would definetely recommend this for anyone looking for a great place to eat and drink. It was winter and we actually sat outside under a marquee with gas heater......noice!
