Loved the location, the waiter was nice and attentive, the steak was very good and welll done but but both one of the entrees and a main was not up to standards. Maybe a bad day in the kitchen:( Disappointed with the food although the ambient and service was nice.

I am a huge fan of Grangers. The fact that it is always so busy is a good indication of a fantastic and popular restaurant. No matter how busy the restaurant is, the food and service is always amazing. Keep up the great work

Great place for a staff Christmas lunch. We were able to order a number of share plates and could try lots of different dishes.

We booked our Cleave House Christmas lunch with 18 people, and the whole afternoon went off amazingly, all the food orders were correct, with no hassles! Great afternoon and delicious food, thanks Grangers!

We have been here a few times but dont think we will be back on a Friday night. We took my Aunty and cousin out for dinner and thought it would be relaxing, by the water on a warm evening. She doesnt get out for dinner so it was a treat but Friday night is very much a pub atmosphere and was noisey, with a DJ and a bit boozy. We had to yell to talk and the DJ was just a droning bass noise from where we were sitting. The service wasnt as good as usual due to it being busy - we didnt know who exactly was serving us and were either flooded with service or waiting for awhile with a table of mess from the seafood platter, bringing flies and waiting to order our mains. We also got incorrect cocktails as well but didnt complain. We always love the seafood platter but the fish batter was soggy. We usually love Grangers and rate it on par with the city but Friday night definitely felt like a suburban pub. We will stick to lunches there but wont be back for some time. The pricing was expensive as well ie. the ribs. The serving boards look nice but really impractical for messy food such as the ribs - I had to put the bones on a serviette on the table and it just felt messy and not enjoyable. We spent quite a bit as this was a Christmas treat and we were very underwhelmed.

Excellent food, great service!!! Loved every second of our first visit to Grangers for my wife's Bday. We almost had to leave due to the menu not being suitable for my daughter,but the Staff went out of their way to accommodate our daughters allergies. I do recommend getting a side menu to accommodate adults/children with allergies like Egg/Wheet/Nuts. Thanks Grangers!

Great location, and nice buzz to the place daily. Food was okay, but nothing to write home about, we had the pork belly, fish and chips, beef and chicken burgers and the curry. We live locally so have visited over the years on many occasions and truthfully the food isn't what I would expect for the pricing (even with the location being prime), but it is a great place to meet and catch up with friends if you just want to grab a drink and are more focused on the company than a gastronomic experience. Service was okay, we had a big group and there were a couple of mix ups of the main orders but all was correctly quickly and without a fuss. We used to absolutely loved the Mezza Luna Restaurant that the owners had next door but since it has changed to a Mexican place. We would rate Grangers a 6/10 in terms of overall experience.

We always enjoy the ambience and buzz that Grangers brings. It's a welcome addition to our patch of the woods. However, we have seen frozen fish being used and have been so informed in the past. This time, also, the fish did not appear as fresh as it should have been, but that is only my opinion. Grangers says that they use fresh produce, which maybe true, as of the present time. This is not to say that we would not go again.

We loved everything and so happy to have found you. We were disappointed with the Marrow bone though as it was difficult to get it out and with very little marrow in it. But other than that, we absolutely had a fabulous day and loved everything else. Our waitress was great and the seafood so fresh. Not bad cocktails either ;-). Thank you and see you next week.

Don’t run out of seafood. You are a top restaurant so no excuses. Went there specifically for the platter for two for a birthday treat and all you had were muscles. Apparently the truck didn’t arrive for your delivery, don’t get so low of Ingredients in the first place guys. Very disappointing.

Never stop the dumplings or Sri Lankan curry, Drive across town for them.

Best seafood platter I've ever had. Variety and freshness is exceptional, not to mention the generous amount of seafood on the platter - worth the price.

First time guests for the Sunday roast (we've been many times before fur Al a Carte dining), and it was Fathers Daddy night. The place was very full (and noisy) but the service was prompt and friendly and the food came without too much of a delay. We indulged in desserts and were not disappointed. The wine list is not extensive but there were many excellent choices. And that is why we keep returning. Good job team. Again.

Our waitress was outstanding as we had two elderly parents with us and had to ask for the food to be put through quickly. She dealt with this very well and with other requests.

Beautiful view, but had asked for a window table as was for a 40th Birthday get together and it wasn't unfortunately. Good food and good service.
