Food and service are ok

This place serves the usual pub grub where you line up to order. The menu is varried but I have visited a number of times and I suggest sticking to the basics when ordering. Schnitzels, chilli bread etc are nice. Steaks are mostly over cooked in my experience, with medium rare often coming out well... read more

This restaurant gets very busy, lots of families dining out. It has good, fresh food and is usually served pretty quickly. They have specials but not always easy to see what is available. There is a bar in the restaurant area and serve yourself water.

Both of us being big eaters & food lovers walked away very satisfied 😄 it was also great to see good customer service to go with the... More

Today I had lunch at our local pub for a spontaneous lunch date. We were very keen on a cheap $10 meal as usual. The first point of disappointment was when we saw that prices had increased by $4 for all the lunch meals. However were happy to pay this as the food id usually good. This is where my... More

We revisit this place once a year or so to see if it has improved. It never does, in fact I think it has gotten worse. The food is overpriced and dreadful. We have some amazing venues in the area that do great (& inexpensive) pub meals- this place is not one of them. Save your money and go elsewhere.

Great steak and seafood, generous serves, not a large menu selection but the quality of what is on the menu is great. Serves are generous. Surroundings are pleasant enough, good kids area, prices are good. "The best lemon,lime & bitters I have had made for me in years. Staff very friendly and helpful.Thanks for everything.

Have been here a couple of times and I'd have to say I don't think the management care about anything except their gaming area. The food is (as previously mentioned) frozen and bought in, also often cold. The service is terrible with surly faced wait-staff who do everything begrudgingly. Save your cash for one of the hundreds of decent establishments... More

Had the calamari for lunch today, advertised as being flash fried, indicating it was freshly prepared, but was good old store bought rubbish.

Meet with local friends that recommended the meals at Bradford's; Looms Bistro. It was a good night with the meals of a generous size and reasonable prices. The service was prompt and the drinks were icy cold. Kids have play zone, so all happy. Will go back.

I have eaten here a few times over the year and each time I have been disappointed (I only go when I have my kids for the play area). Yesterday I ordered the chicken snitzel burger lunch special, not good at all.. The snitzel was so small it didn't even cover the bun and it was extremely over cook that... More
