Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Could not fault anything. Reserved table for 1:30pm. Next time will reserve for 2pm to take advantage of the Aperol Spritzer promotion.

Once again a meal that we were hoping to have had “run out”, disappointing. The wait for our entrees was too long. But our meals were excellent.

A lovely venue - great ambiance! The Clink has a separate bar area with fireplace where you can meet for pre-dinner drinks, or when fine, an attractive outside area. Rachael & staff were very welcoming. Our group of 18 all enjoyed the evening. Thankyou ! We will return !

Staff were very friendly and attentive. We decided to have the ‘Trust the chef menu’ so each of the 5 courses that came out were a delicious surprise for us both and very much enjoyed and we left feeling quite contented.

Surpassed our expectations - every dish in the chef's 5-course, along with their wine pairings were all incredible! Topped off by friendly service and lovely ambience. Thanks for a lovely evening, we will be back!

We had a fabulous dinner at Clink. The atmosphere is warm and cosy on a chilly winter evening with a lovely fire. The food was beautifully presented and wait staff attentive. Also a good selection of wines to accompany the meal. The menu choices were so nice and plenty of variety for our group. Because it all sounded so delicious, we couldn't resist having all three courses.

Very attentive helpful staff. We were 7 adults and three infants, nothing was too much hassle. Delicious food all round - kids fish and chips, Sunday roasts, rhubarb crumble and chocolate brownie. A fabulous afternoon/evening thank you!

We have been to your restaurant a few times and have always enjoyed it. But I have to say the meal on Saturday night was just terrible, and expensive. The boys loved there beef or lamb not sure what they had now. But very small portion very little of anything else it was more like a garnish on the side. Lee had the bread and Pate which was tasteless. I had the vegetables, Couldn't have been more boring and tasteless. A couple of bits of broccoli ,pumpkin halloumi with spinach. Dressing swirled around the plate, nothing on the vegies $27 that's pretty rich. Sorry Clink your menu was very boring.
