“Great beer selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

I have visited 4 Pines several times and always enjoy the wide selection of beers they have available. The staff are always super friendly and the atmosphere is good. Certainly my favorite pub in Manly.

“Great for a drink & watch the sun go down”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

I had checked out TA before a day out with my wife. We got the ferry to Manly and the 4 Pines is just outside the ferry terminal, on the opposite side of the road. There was a wide age range of clientele and the atmosphere was warm and friendly. We didn't eat at the 4 Pines but the food looked good. We tried several different 4 Pines beers & ciders, all great from what I can remember. Well worth a look on your travels. Will call in again on our next day out.

“Tourist place,not for locals wanting a good meal!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The stout was good, thick & creamy but the food left a bit to be desired. We had the pork belly which was fatty and greasy served with new potatoes cooked in fat which were also greasy plus the veal schnitzel which was also deep fried (as schnitzel is!) and this was also served with deep fried oily potatoes with English spinach thru them. Tasty but it sat in our stomachs for quite a while! There did not seem to be much of a food choice that was not heavy and fatty! Pub fare.

“A unique venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

They have nailed it! Perfect balance of service, knowledge and passion. Great range of both meals and ales. The small batch beer taps would be enough incentive to visit, the experience was more than enough to guarantee I'll return.

“Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We went for dinner and drinks at the 4 Pines Brewery in Manly this week and I have to say the service was excellent. The restaurant made a big effort to serve everyone in our party at the same time and did so without any fuss, buzzers or table numbers. The food was well priced and tasted great. It is a rare thing these days to find Bar Staff who know the importance of good customer service. The staff at the Brewery deserve a special mention as they went out of their way to assist our party and ensure we had everything we needed. What added to our great night was the live entertainment they had on offer. One cool, talented dude playing away and doing a great job too - he was great.
