From the moment we walked into the ibis we were greeted more than once the staff were engaged and made you feel welcomed. We were given the choice to choose where we wanted to be seated which was nice. The premises is modern and clean. Reece was our waiter he was friendly and down to earth and he was very professional, and we enjoyed how prompt the service was. We would definitely recommend and return next time we would book the hotel and make a weekend of it.

Drinks were perfect, service was tentative and amazing. Food was a slight letdown from the amount of fat and gristle on the lamb, burger bun was crumbly and fell apart while eating it and could have done with seasoning the beef more. Overall decent experience!

The steak was cold when served and chips too. Service was average but not as friendly as last time. Dessert tasted good. Not sure if I will go back again

Dined out with my partner and eldest son...We sat outside on the balcony overlooking the river, warmed by the overhead heater. It was really lovely and nice to eat outside in a winter's evening. Food was awesome, everything was delicious! Chicken salad for starters and salmon dish, 2x lamb rump and 1 beef burger for mains, and apple fritters with burnt caramel sauce, tonka bean creme brulee and chocolate delice for desserts. My son couldn't finish the chocolate delice as it was far too rich, but other than that it was a very pleasurable night out. Bronwyn was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We will be back!

Took 50 minutes to receive our order and when arrived was mostly cold and over cooked. Service was pathetic and somewhat surly. A very disappointing dining experience.

The striploin steak was beautifully cooked and we loved it! Pork Tocino was okay though, the pork itself was quite dry. However, the service and atmosphere were excellent. Thank you.

Love having our meals here. Food is delicious and staff are fantastic. They find ways to cope with our various dietary requirements in a friendly and helpful manner. Honey is a saint with her patience and friendly banter. Highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Loved eating on the terrace (but the trains are noisy). Excellent scallops, pork belly and lamb shanks. Unfortunately the sticky pear dessert let things down a bit as it was dry, and the ice cream was icy like it had been rolled and refrozen. Smallish wine list, but some excellent calibre wines on it.
