Came and ordered the pork belly bites, the loaded fries, the S&P Squid, the sweetcorn side, the 700g ribs and the chicken burger. The ribs were AMAZING and the salad and fries were very tasty. Perfect portion, perfect temperature, very very tasty! Same as the chicken burger. Was disappointed to find the sweetcorn side was 4 mini bite sized portions and not a full corn on the cob. A little steep at $9.50 in my opinion. The loaded fries were nice and tasty. A bit more gravy would have been nice but I am sure the wonderful staff would have given me some if I had asked for sure. Pork belly bites - SO GOOD!! Get them and get them again :) The S&P Squid was a bit mushy but that is always hit and miss anywhere you go. Didn't take away from the whole experience and will definitely be returning!

We attended the Chicken and Waffles bottomless brunch and it was off the chain! Highly recommend it, food was f’n delicious and the bartenders that were refilling us were absolute angels. Really lovely staff, great atmosphere and got to see a sneak peek of Good Shirt. Awesome afternoon.

Booked a table last night for me and three other adults. Spent a good amount of money on food and drinks, we came with the intention of watching the bank brotherhood music but not told at any stage that this had been cancelled due to a double booking by your event manager. We arrived at 7 pm and sat at the table ordering drinks and food till 9 pm. No one came to the table or got on the stage to advise everyone what had happened. It was a bloody waste of time and money. I was not happy and very much disappointed at this. DO NOT ADVICE that you have this event going on from 6 pm -9 pm but not let your customers know.

Food was tasty, calamari was very chewy though. Nice fries :). We felt the restaurant was very dark for the time of day we were there (5.30). Food and drinks delivery was quick but wasn’t warm friendly kiwi service from the staff.

Food was basic and expensive for what it was We had a large group booked for food, but they seemed unprepared to serve us. We were also served outside, not realising that this was the smoking area. Band was amazing though, and cocktails were nice.

Made a reservation that required a lot of detailed and I given all these details to the person over the phone days before the event, only to arrive on the night and the people working that night weren't advised. Service was ok. Place was jam packed so you literally have to push and shove your way through to placed. Crowded and extremely loud. Bathroom was disgusting and had no paper towels at the beginning of the night! We had ordered platters for the evening which were ok. Took years just to get to the front of the bar to get a drink.
