Great pub food.

The Bonnie offers a full pub menu and everything on it passes the taste test. You will not be disappointed.

Anytime I find myself in the area, I crave the poutine from the Bonnie. You can't go wrong, huge portion sizes, great down home service and a great atmosphere. The staff here go above and beyond, you never have to wait too long and the odd time you do; it's worth it.

Service was good. The atmosphere is cozy and packed with people. I got the steak and it was so thin the bone itself was only about 3mm thick. I asked for rare and it came well done (the only way you could cook a steak that thin) my mashed potatoes where cold and when I commented to the waitress she... More

Went into this establishment thinking I was going to make a healthy choice. After much drooling over the menu I opted for Potato Skind & wings. The Skins were by far the best I have ever had.

When we are in the Sydney area for lunch or dinner, our first thought is The Bonnie Prince. The food is always consistently great, good selection, good prices. I have enjoyed every meal I've had there. The only fault I could possibly have would be, when it is really busy, the table service is sometimes lacking.

Most of the items on the menu had meat in it. Our waitresses was very nice and suggested a few items that would be tasty without the meat....they were amazing. My uncle had meat on the side as we shared the plates (which were HUGE). I highly recommend the skins. I have never had potatoes like this before. The skins... More

We went to eat here on a busy Saturday evening. The entrance way was full of people wanting a table. We were going to leave but noticed how quickly the staff asked how many in a party and how quickly they were clearing tables as diners left. The service was helpful and friendly.
