My daughter had her hen night here in the Library room. We had wonderful food and excellent service, our hostess even took some photos for us (much appreciated!) and a good time was had by all. One of our group left her handbag on a seat in the bar area and the security man gave it back to her -... More

Probably one of the worst experiences in my life! We went there with a bunch of girls for the hens do. We had a function room booked but when we arrived they had double booked it and we had to sit outside. No biggie, mistakes happened, and they offered us food platters and a drink to the bride to be.... More

We're disappointed that you feel this way. As we discussed with you during the evening, we're sorry there was a misunderstanding about the function area you booked. Unfortunately this set the tone with your group for your evening and it appears the efforts offered and made by our team to amend the situation did not meet your expectations. Please contact...

Recently we visited No 4 and had an enjoyable afternoon, excellent selection of beers and wine and staff that were very friendly. Fantastic outdoors environment and alfresco area.

Whilst the atmosphere in the bar isn't conducive for breakfast, the staff, service and meals were great. I'd recommend the Truffled Eggs (delicious), however with a huge side order of bacon, I was unable to finish these. My dining partner had the Big Breakfast and the Hash Browns, which we were told are legendary, certainly were!

We went here for our last night out after 10 months of travel throughout Africa, Asia and Oceania. After our slightly-disappointing experience at Mexicano's, we are glad we opted to splurge and come here for a proper dinner. The experience was everything we were looking for. The server was incredibly friendly and welcoming, made us feel at ease and comfortable.... More

Came here for dinner knowing nothing about the place but it was absolutely amazing. I had the mango smoked chicken salad and it was delicious, I couldn't fault it at all. My partner had a eye fillet cooked blue, he is extremely fussy with the way he likes his steak cooked but he said it was absolutely amazing, the red... More

Imagine CHC having to restore their moral and customer confidence in the Food & Beverage areas of this 'earthquake devastated city' and when one dines out for the first experience on @ new year 2015 with a disappointing dinner with life long friends whom we had travelled overseas to visit ...it was embarrassingly bad.

Thank you for your review and honesty. We appreciate all feedback - good, bad and ugly as it helps us to ensure that our standards are either being met or not. On your occasion not! Basically what you experienced is the complete opposite of where we hold our standards. Food that is not up to standard is just not good... More

Brunch menu with lots of breakfasty options and some lunch options. My husband ordered the calamari entree ($16.50) and really enjoyed it. The portion size was good. I ordered the Sandwich with pulled braised brisket ($24,50). It comes with a portion of wedges. The beef was very tasty with a great tasting sauce and slaw. Good size portion. Service was... More

We went here for an Anniversary Dinner. The food was excellent, good sized portions and a good variety to choose from. Excellent service from our attentive and friendly waitress. We usually come here for drinks and late lunch so Dinner was a very lovely change.
