    We have been coming to the Precinct for over 10 years - most weeks when netball is on at John Cain Arena. My fav dish that have ordered since being added to menu is the Singapore noodles! Yesterday it was aweful! Overcooked noodles far to much carrot, little to no pork and some horrible brown sauce - not satay as it should be. I’m reluctant to ever order this again.

    Nachos were just okay and burnt. Pretty tasteless. I didn't eat them all. My brother in law had chicken wings and wanted to have some chips on the side. He was charged another $12. He found the sauce too spicy. The happy hour drinks were great though!

    The atmosphere and menu choices weren’t as great as we have experienced in the past. Perhaps there is still a recovery from the ‘lock down’ era in process.

    This was our 5th visit for Super Bowl Day at the precinct! We just love the atmosphere and vibe in the hotel as the day starts and builds towards the game coverage! The booking fee is more than reasonable, the food selection more than ample, and the beer is very cold as expected! Your staff seem to enjoy the atmosphere as well which makes for a very fun day indeed.... it also helps that your team gets up and wins the day... which has happened the last 2 years! I look forward already to next year's Super Bowl experience at The Precinct! Cheers, Rick Good

    For twenty dollars we had an outstanding meal and the serving was more than ample. The pulled pork burgers were tasty and hot, chips crunchy and delicious. Then as if that wasn’t enough …..included in the price was a wine, beer or soft drink. Again we were not let down the wine was a Kings Valley Prosecco and those that had a soft drink were served a large glass. Thank you Precinct we will all be back

    We ate in the dining room area and that was a little quieter. Ordered from the Mr Yum QR Code service on the table as we didn't want to queue at the bar which was very busy. Main issue was no table service, we had to get our own drinks from adjacent very busy bar area so not really a "Dining Room" experience? Food however was quite good. Hubby had Fish and Chips which he said was very good, I had Roaster Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Salad which was great. I'm not a vegetarian but enjoy a vegie dish now and then. Note: No desserts on the menu which was disappointing.

    Very conveniently located for our group who were commuting by train, tram or on foot. We had an early reservation in the dining room on a weekday, so it was agreeably quiet. Lovely ambiance including an open fire. No table service for ordering. Not sure if this is usual. We had to use the QR code for the table and pay by card (might not suit everyone,) and order drinks from the bar. Menu is reasonably limited, but what it offered was done very well. GF options were good. Staff were lovely and ensured dishes were cleared. We were happy with our dinner experience and will definitely return.

    Booked a table for Super Bowl and was surprised at the care and presentation of my private table. Atmosphere and the day were amazing, table layout meant a few tables had an obstructed view of the big screen, but that did little to dampen the experience.

    The parma was rubbery and chewy, the chips were bland and the salad was only leafy greens. There are way better alternatives in Richmond. The only plus was proximity to the MCG.

    Hey Mary, Thank you for your lovely feedback, we are glad you had a great time. I'm sorry you seem to have missed out on the sweepstake, we actually had a lot of people enter so ended up running 2. I'm sorry if this didn't get communicated to you. We will work on that for next year. This was our first year running this event so there were a few lessons learned. Kind regards, The Precinct Team
