    Atmosphere and food are excellent but drinks are very expensive e.g. a bottle of their cheapest house wine is $60.

    Really enjoyed our celebration in the beer garden. Got a bit noisy at times with a couple of large groups (including our own) but it added to the atmosphere. Friendly staff with prompt service despite being very busy. Love that they have glasses of beer (7oz). Food very good.

    There were eight of us and mostly we had a very good meal. Two of us had the veal schnitzel and it wasn't so good though. Very hard to cut and quite tough. The meat looked too dark to be real veal too which was disappointing. Noisy but good atmosphere with friendly staff. The fish (special of the day) was outstanding

    We booked the Standard Hotel for a family of 7 for a birthday lunch. We enjoyed the outdoor table area but found the staff particularly disinterested and unfriendly creating quite a negative atmosphere. We chose 7 different courses and generally found the food disappointing. This had in the past always been a reliable go to pub. We won’t be returning in a hurry. What a shame as it’s our local.

    A lovely pub with amazing decor. Food was fantastic with lots of options. Especially half serve options of some of the mains, which are great when you are not so hungry or for kids sick of the usual kids menu items. Bar staff were really friendly and could remember drinks orders from the round before which can make life a lot easier, when you can't remember everyone's preferred choices. Chips were amazing!!!

    Great venue. Love coming here for our end of year get together. If I had to give any feedback, it would be to have some music out in the beer garden. It was a lovely afternoon, good food, great drinks - only thing missing was some form or music and I think we would have stayed longer.

    I have fallen in love at the Standard, taken my partner here for years and made friends with Sam Cooper before his departure. I brought my team here to celebrate a difficult professional year and have never been more disappointed with the service. We waited 2 hours for our Christmas party food, leading to people needing to get takeaway and not eat together. I made an explicit request for a table outdoors which was not heeded and we squashed into a table which could not fit everyone comfortably. Most staff were friendly and apologetic but there were others who were rude and dismissive despite the fact there was an obvious staff error.

    We attended The Standard for our annual Christmas Gathering. Unfortunately the venue did not have air conditioning which was less than ideal on a 34 degree day. All the tables were packed out (to be expected) adding to the uncomfortable temperature inside. Unfortunately one of my friends who was pregnant had to leave early as the heat was intolerable for her. We probably would have stayed longer however the heat was unbearable as there was only one fan and no ventilation so we moved to another local pub that had those facilities. The food was what you would expect for pub style food. The food and beverage staff were friendly however they were run off their feet so it meant that we cleared our own plates by taking them up to the bar so we had space for drinks.

    Thanks Standard Hotel / OpenTable for asking for feedback. Here it is: Everyone had great meals except me. I was treated to the worlds smallest veal schnitzel. I essentially had a plate on coleslaw with a side of schnitzel. For something that was on the specials board, I expected better. Normally, I would have alerted the wait staff, but given their overall indifference to customer engagement and apparent lethargy, I didn't bother.
