About The Cav
An unsuspecting gastropub on top of College Hill, The Cav is unlike your average pub. Aiming for a more upmarket experience, The Cav provides quality food and a serene setting overlooking the CBD. Grab a table on the overhanging outdoor deck, and feast on gourmet tacos, sliders, pork belly, and salad bowls with an ice-cold one.
Had a wonderful birthday lunch at The Cav. Great food and drinks and excellent service. Especially nice sitting on the deck on a very hot day. Will definitely be back.
Really enjoyed our dinner and night watching the rugby. Great staff and fish tacos were superb! Thanks.
Service not great. Somewhat felt like we were a nuisance rather than patrons.
Great spot. Excellent service !!!
Great food and service. Will be back.
Great food, service and atmosphere although I did get overcharged for my food which I had to come back and question. otherwise would definitely go back.
Great service especially given that in Covid 2.5 it’s table service only.
I have to say I have been to The Cav a few times and this was a really disappointing experience compared to the rest. In particular the food and service. I understand that these are challenging times for the industry but a friendly smile and good food shouldn’t suffer. We ordered 3 kids meals which were so different in portions size... the kids spag bol was great and good size but the kids fish and chips has one tiny piece of fish... The steak of the day for Father’s Day wasn’t seas at all. We asked for medium to well done but it was a medium rare to to rare. For $35+ dollars it wasn’t great. I ordered the Sunday lunch. Chicken. Blood spots near the bone and over done veggies and terrible potatoes. Not even a Yorkshire pudding or green veg! Where were all the trimmings you advertised?? The girl that was responsible for our table service was in our opinion a bit grumpy. The other staff were great. I didn’t mention this at the time in particular with the food because you were busy but I would seriously consider not eating there again and is was so average. Also hoegaarden on tap which is advertised isn’t on the menu which is a shame! I hope this is taken as constructive criticism but you guys need to up your game in the food steals on our opinion. We had 6 people there that possibly won’t come back for food on that showing
Came here for the pork belly (sold out) then chose the squid (sold out). what kind of gastropub runs out of those items on a Sunday evening. Wouldn’t waste my time again.
Delicious and filling food in a really fun atmosphere. Super friendly and welcoming staff, and prompt service. A perfect place for group catch ups.
Fabulous for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. Lots of healthy, delicious and well presented food options . Excellent selection of beverages. Stylish interior with great view towards the city.
Hard to give any stars when you cancelled my booking. Was really disappointed to hear this booking was still ok, as someone called me on Saturday to say it was cancelled due to already being fully booked for the UFC, obviously someone stuffed up. Had a crowd organised and had told them we had a booking, then at last minute we had to scramble to find somewhere else to go and watch it.
We had a great time, thanks. And the serving staff were very helpful and friendly. We will certainly come back again :)
Thanks for the great service and delicious food and beers. Love the taco sharing platter!
Excellent friendly service.
Always very accommodating thank you 😊
We lived the atmosphere but the bun on our burger was stale and the fish and chips was a bit bland. Beer was good.
The Cav and the team are great!
Always friendly and welcoming - was great to be back following lockdown!!
An overlooked pub for the area. Pleasantly surprised by how lovely the pub is. Good work abiding by Level 2 requirements
Friendly and helpful staff, nice atmosphere
I thought the staff were super attentive and as soon as oyu noticed the drink low, they would appear at your side. The Cav Tav platter needs reviewing, there were some random things on there and a whole lot of pickled vegetables with not much to go with them. There was also a long wait for food and at lunchtime waiting 40 minutes, barely gives you time to eat for those that were returning to work.
Nice afternoon lunch and overall great but my burger fell apart and was soggy and the bottom Nice staff and friendly.
Great casual dinner, enjoyed the atmosphere, food and service
Such a nice venue for drinks, always clean and tidy but very relaxed.
