Went there today for lunch with friends. Ordered Prawn and Mango Salad with crispy noodles. I wouldn't order it again. The noodles are basically crushed up 2 minute noodles and there was barely any dressing. A very dry meal indeed. The prawns were over cooked...More

We were group of 10 on what we thought was quiet private room on the “Library” table. When we arrived at scheduled time, were dismayed that hotel management had crammed another 30 people in the room on temporary tables, so it sounded more like a...More

We recently held my daughters 18th party out in the beer garden. We can’t rate the service we received highly enough. We had exclusiveness to the beer garden where there was a mini bar established. The staff were so accommodating & helpful with all of...More

Ordered two of the “barramundi”. Both plates came out with 2 slimy long fillets which were certainly not Barramundi! The “fish” looked like basa, the type you find frozen at supermarket always on special. Very disappointed.

The kitchen and staff dealt really well with our large-dish group of 18 - managing to serve all of our meals within minutes. Even though this place can cater for quite a crowd overall, the space has been arranged thoughtfully to create relatively private spaces....More

We've dined here a few times, but last night the crew went that extra mile to look after our late evening 80th birthday dinner. Thanks to the Benjamin for a lovely meal (as usual) served by friendly, efficient staff. We'll be back!

Found this place while looking for an easy Sunday night out . Heard about the 'bohemian' decor and decided to give it a go (especially as it was 7 mins walk from our hotel ) Wow, do glad we found it. Got there early in...More

this pub has had a major overhaul and it is the funkyist place now and very popular with the city types and everyone else. Lots of old lampshades, cut glass hanging from the ceiling, beer garden with 3 great booths including huge retro lights hanging in each, great food, excellent staff and good wine list too. It ticks all my boxes. They seem like a happy bunch of staff which always makes it a better experience for the likes of me
