About Morningside Tavern

In the heart of the Morningside, you’ll find the tavern. The brick-house is multi-level, allowing larger groups or a more intimate affair. Pub grub is taken to the next level with cultivated dishes and accommodating options. It’s the little details, such as sourcing chocolate from Miann’s factory out the back, that make Morningside Tavern that extra bit special.

Great beer and food. Perfect location for pre game drinks.

Great place, great food. Didn't realise they have live music though and because there are speakers inside and out, it means there's no place to sit where you can have a decent catch up if you're in a group. Having said that, the guitarist was great - it was just a shame that our conversation was dominated by the music.

We ate at the Morningside Tavern on a late Sunday afternoon when it was quiet. Food was overall mediocre and disappointing. The steak was blue as opposed to rare and was devoid of any searing and therefore flavour. The ribs and the accompanying smashies were totally covered with a spicy seasoning which killed any flavour. The children’s pizza was supposed to be a bacon pizza but came covered in pineapple (we didn’t order the Hawaiian) and way to much tomato purée but very little ham / bacon. The food on the whole lacked basic seasoning and was bland. We had to ask for salt, pepper and a steak knife. The final disappointment was the disgracefully small portion of children’s Sundae which was made up of two tiny scoops (melon ball size) of ice cream, a tiny drizzle of sauce and a few sprinkles for which you have the audacity to charge $9.90! Positive points were the chicken nibble and calamari starters and decent wine! The market fish, fettuccine and seafood chowder were ok although again lacked seasoning. The live music was good although slightly too loud for comfortable conversation. Overall rather pricey for what you get.

Thank you so much for hosting our hens group! James the bar tender was an amazing host throughout and the bride had an incredible time.

We held a work event at the Morningside Tavern and it was awesome. The staff were super helpful with setting up and the service all night was above expectation. Would highly recommend.

Fantastic service, waitstaff knew the wine list and even made sure we knew to order dessert before the kitchen went into late night mode. The bill wasn’t split evenly but it just means we’ll all be catching up again so that the friend who ended up with virtually nothing to pay can get the drinks in soon.

Live band was a nice touch but far too loud for a Sunday arvo. Couldn't hear anyone talk it was ridiculous.

Food came out fast and the way the bill was done was easy for a big group like us all wanting to pay separately. It's a nice location to our work-place so I'm sure many of us will be back in some capacity.

Busy night so understand longer service times but personally, if THAT long, I would have apologised not empty-handed but with a complimentary garlic bread (or similar) to tie our table over.
