“Awesome food & service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Eaten there a few times & definitely will be going back. the food is restaurant quality (don't think pub food think restaurant food). Service is friendly courteous and professional, very reasonably priced. Clean & nice ambience. Highly recommend.

“Clink(ing) great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Clink is seriously a great place to meet and eat....and drink! Excellent value for money, fresh, tasty and healthy food, great atmosphere and professional, helpful staff, all at pub prices.
Even though my family and I live in Sydney, Clink and the Courthouse Hotel are always a 'must do' on our itinerary. Wish it was in Sydney but a good excuse to head up to the Gold Coast.

“Great Atmosphere - totally enjoyable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

I have dined at Clink Restaurant at the Courthouse many times and it is the closest thing we have on the Gold Coast to one of the great pubs in Sydney. A wonderful atmosphere to relax and enjoy a good meal in a central location. The staff are friendly and professional, the menu offers great value for such quality and well presented meals. Great place to catch up with friends. We will be back, thank you!

“Great food, enjoyable atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

I loved the price of the food, and the quirky restaurant name, which is situated adjoining the Courthouse Hotel, close to the Southport Magistrate's Court. The Clink has well-priced food and drink, great service, and is well frequent by the legal fraternity - as well as some of their clients. All in all, a great place to check out.

“Used to be good, not worth the visit now”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

For a while we were thrilled with the new Clink chef. Her food was amazing!

Now it's gone back to its substandard quality with weird combination dishes and terrible desserts.

We once dined here regularly with friends but now, don't bother.

Hi,

Its been 12 months since your visit and Southport has undergone many changes as has Clink. There's been a new chef for 6 months and a new hotel manager. We have shuffled some tables into the Nerang St creating a CBD dining area, which is a great spot to watch the trams go by and see Southport's Chinatown come alive. We hope to see you back and I am sure the experience will be much much better.
