Very noisy. Live band at 6:30??

Thanks for your review Justine. Our live music is usually from 730pm on a Friday dependent on sport matches, and the Warriors were on at 8pm so we had music from 5-8pm instead which happens a few times during the league season. Sorry to hear you thought it was too loud, we do our best to get the levels right to suit both pub drinkers and diners alike. Hope to see you another time anyway.

Today's experience was shocking we are extremely disappointed. We brought our children in expecting a lovely easter treat. These were not even offered to order or made obvious that they were available Drinks were forgotten and then felt that we were accused of not actually ordering them in the first place Food was not up to the standard we expected the menu was very over priced and limited options. Kids meals were disappointing the burger option was extremely over priced for what it was and i cannot belive that the staff feel happy to serve a burger with literally a patty and bread unless the customer paid for extra fillings. Even McDonald's hamburgers have more content then the one we purchased today. We were once regular customers but not again.

Hi Natalie. Sorry to hear you didnt enjoy any of your experience. Our new menu has been well received so disappointing to hear you think its limited and not well priced. Our kids burger has always been just bun, patty and sauce (same as McDonalds,except our patties are made fresh inhouse) to cater for smaller and fussier children, but as per the add ons menu, more adventurous kids can make the burger as they please. Apologies if the staff didnt communicate about our easter specialty drinks, but Im sure would have happily obliged if you asked for anything. Sorry to hear though you wont be back. Thanks for the feedback nonetheless.

organised a group lunch (approx. 12) and we pre-ordered via email which was super simple. our meals arrived exactly as ordered, everyone seemed to be happy with their meal. Flying Moa also allows split bills, which is becoming uncommon these days but very very helpful when in a group! We look forward to next time!

Came in for dinner with my partner on valentines day, dinner service was a little steady but not too busy. Although the food was alright the service was very slow. We'd finished our starters and had to wait over 30 minutes before someone came around to our table to even clear the dishes. Unfortunately the lady who cleared the table had assumed we'd had our main and asked if we would like to see the dessert menu, at that I had to laugh because we hadn't even been served our main. All in all we had been seen by 5 different staff throughout the night most of the time everyone just walked past not even really checking up to see if we wanted more drinks or were alright. I have worked in hospitality myself so I know how the rush can be but it's also important to be attentive and the staff were definitely lacking that.

Hi Jayde Thanks for your review, sorry to hear you werent the happiest with your visit. We were infact extremely busy that night so apologies if things took a bit longer than usual and staff thought you had already eaten. While possibly not visible from where you were sitting, we had a full outdoor area also, with 240 diners in for dinner causing a bit of a back log. Specials occasions such as Valentines are always a busy night for us and while we try to revisit all tables, its seems we possibly werent as attentive as you would have liked, so again our apologies for this. Hope you enjoyed your meals once you received them and enjoyed the rest of your evening.
