Had lunch with a friend a few weeks ago, their $10 lunch menu is brilliant. We had the Calamari and for a few dollars extra for the steak. Both cooked to perfection. Was very busy at lunch time however our meals did not take long to arrive. For lunch fantastic value with great food.

Hi Linda, Thank you for your feedback in regards to your experience here at the Dog and Parrot Tavern on Australia Day. I apologise that it was not exactly a pleasant one for you and your husband. Usually our steaks are high quality and not tough at all, unfortunately sometimes we can get one that is not so good. All... More

Good Friday deals on beer and spirit. Pretty sure it's like $5. Good for a quiet drink or pres before going out somewhere. They hardly ever have live music so not so good if you like that atmosphere. Two pool tables. Think it's $3 a game. Has big screen for fights or footy

From very poor service in the bistro area to being squashed and cramped in the dining area (including when you line up to order food), the Dog & Parrot fails to impress on each occasion. The meals are very average and so are the drink prices. The sports bar is full of smelly loud drunk workman and the outdoor area... More

Over the years the food has had its ups and downs. Family report the steaks are good. I report the calamari is awful. Prices are cheap so what can you expect.

This is my preferred local pub for a palmy or a steak. My new favourite dish is the mixed grill, but that dish does involve a huge appetite! Highly recommended. I like my steak blue-to-rare and the chefs cook it blue if you ask for blue and rare if you ask for rare. In other pubs, I will ask for... More

Went for dinner on Sunday 21st August. It's advertised the Bistro closes at 8.30PM. We went to order dinner at 8.10PM and were told they were closed as they hadn't had many customers for dinner that night (they were still taking meals out to customers)and had run out of food. My friend and I paid a $30 taxi fare to... More
