We spotted this as we walked past and popped in to book a table for that evening... Very welcoming reception. Great service and delicious food. Pork belly was huge and wonderful, with good crackling. I requested a change of potato accompaniment which was willingly substituted, so I was very happy. Highly recommended.

It was by chance we ended up at Cook'n' With Gas. After a full day of travel from Sydney and a slightly complicated check in at a hotel, hubby, preschooler, baby and I had set off in search of a restaurant. After taking a wrong turn, we got disoriented and lost, and ended up walking down Worcester Street, where we... More

what can i say...... great food and service, good company and an all round fantastic evening. The TDH menu was good value if you want 3 courses, and the mussels were divine. Not cheap but as with so many things you get what you pay for.....

Situated just in the next street from the Orari B&B where we were staying is the delightful Cook`n with Gas. This was the second time here having eaten here Three years ago. The food was excellent and couldn`t be faulted for both myself & my wife. The service was very good and we had a lovely evening.

visited with another couple and had a great evening. Service was relaxed and efficient. beverage menu was good, nice range of boutique beers. Some nice wines. Food was excellent- prompt service, well cooked and presented. excellent flavors. Really enjoyed the flounder- have not had that in so long... would most certainly go back again

Very charming restaurant/ pub with outdoor area in the back yard with live music. Food: For starter I had gratinated mussels - tasted lovely. Main: mixed grill - lamb and beef tasted absolutely fabelous, pork was too fatty after my taste. For dessert I had the creme brullee - nice presented but ordinary taste. Different musicians (guy with a guitar)... More

Loved the menu and the mains were very, very good! The venison main had very generous portions of venison. There was also great choices of wine available at reasonable prices.

We had a party of 7 and the hype did not meet the expectations. The food was just average. I struggled to put my finger on the issue but I think it was the lack of any point of difference and taste. Service was great and the old movie pica on the wall was a good test of who we... More
