Seated immediately with a bottle of water no glasses. Waited 30 minutes to order drinks. Another 10 minutes to receive drinks and order food. No
Steak, only 3 chicken parmas, no lamb shanks, no bay burger - we asked what they did have and in the end just took what they did have left. Waiting another 20 minutes approx for food to arrive. So in all an hour to receive a meal that was tasty but not what we booked and wanted to order.
Really disappointed

Although had booked a table for 7, there was no actual table reserved for us, instead we were ‘seated’ on barstools at three different sized tables in a walkway with a sloping floor level.

The staff member on duty in the Beer Garden tried to be accommodating and supportive considering that he was virtually on his own.

We had a drink while perched at our ‘table’ and became increasingly uncomfortable with the situation we were in. We were extremely disappointed to note that the menu we were given to make our selections for lunch did not match the menu on the website.

Unfortunately due to this, and some glaring Covid concerns such as the lack of soap in the ladies’ bathroom, self-serve cutlery and sticky table surface,
I am extremely sorry to say that we decided not to stay and left without the family meal we were looking forward to.

After booking on line and thinking we were in the dining room, as nothing indicated elsewise, we were in the bar garden, we didn't care too much.
Went to the bar to buy a draught on tap. Was told the keg needed changing..... still wasn't done by the time we left 3 hours later! no draught available only beer VB stubbies
We had to ask for the music to be turned down as it was WAY to loud for when you want to talk to the people you're having lunch with. Wasn't just us that thought it, few other tables agreed.
We ordered our meals and it took a good time for them to come out. Our meals arrived they were COLD, not warm cold. Obviously been sitting for a while.
Refund given- want be going back for a long while, very disappointing. Use to be a good place.

A very noisey energetic place for groups and families. Limited menu choices and food is average. Took ages for us to get our drinks. We had nearly completed our meals and ordered at the same time. It was busy and did t feel there was enough staff. Service average

Wouldn’t bother going back. Food was very average. Parma even undercooked. Service also very slow with trying to order drinks and have them served. Staff seemed to be very frazzled with only half the tables filled.

The beautiful ladies clearly love working here and the kitchen staff are highly experienced as it clearly showed with the presentation of every dish.
The toilets are spotless as well as the tables and seats.
I did a sneaky check of the bladed of the ceiling fans and the top of the blades had zero dust.
Now that's impressive.

I loved the scallops and calamari most of all. Seeing a plate wonder past me as I was leaving showed how great the kitchen parmas are. I was hungry again. Haha. Thank you all for a marvellous experience.

Food was delicious. The soft shell bao were amazing!
Overall it was a great dining experience - the only thing was that the restaurant was full and the staff were run off their feet. But they were still friendly.

Service was haphazard - asked to order in first ten minutes, we weren't quite ready and then nobody ever came back. Went to order at the bar and you would think I had asked for a kidney, told 'its table service'.
Have tried this place a few times, I want it to be a great local pub but its just sterile and average.

It was a little bit loud, because people were enjoying themselves, I assume. The staff were so friendly and their service was fantastic - I would highly recommend this place. My partner and I had a wonderful time, except that they didn'thave any pork belly bao left :)

Great food. Was lit up like Luna park when we got there for dinner which made the atmosphere non existent. We did ask waiter to dim lights and she did - she agreed way too light and it improved the ambiance by 100%

Super noisy and zero ambience. Had to yell at each other in order to have a chat.
Fitted out like a hall with bright lights and cafeteria style furniture.

Loved the vibe!
The live music was amazing and all the staff were so friendly and very accommodating.
We shared 5 tapas items and a bottle of wine between four people and it was the perfect amount for all of us. All the dishes were delish and will definitely be returning.

Staff were very welcoming and very accommodating. Extra things like making and delivering our coffees one at at time, just to make sure that they were all hot on arrival. Been more than a dozen times and never disappointed with food or service.

Seated for 30 minutes before drink orders were even taken, could not flag down staff members in spite of multiple staff that never moved from behind bar.
Was advised wait was due to function however venue should be able to run service and function or shut down one or the other.
Food flavours great, unfortunately by the time served entrees were cold.
Second round of drinks sat 2 metres away from table at bar long enough to become warm.

The staff and service was very good but the food was average. Ordered the fish and chips and the batter was limp and soggy and the chips were cold. I don’t think that we got good value for the price. It was a bit expensive overall.

The restaurant was not staffed adequately for Mother's Day even with the pre-booking in place. The food was average at best.
