Great food and drink

An enjoyable night out
The food was amazing, quick and happy service bringing it out. We had the ribs falling off the bone along with onion rings and chips, the sauce was a bbq taste delicious and the steak, cooked to perfection, along with chips and salad. we had the waffle and brulee for desert that was so so nice too. We weren't able to sit outside we were only allowed to sit inside the restaurant. Im not too sure why that was, i felt it was a racist move as there was no explaination given and it wasn't until i got home i got upset about it. we are brown and Maori so if the waitress explained the reason it wouild of been appreciated rather than ohh so because we are brown race we cannot sit outside...i didnt get it...we have never had this anywhere else so??
Fantastic time for my daughters 17 Th birthday you never fail to provide and make us leave happy we love the merchant and recommend it to all our family and friends. Thank you for making it a great night
This place was okay, the food was nice but nothing special, the same with the service (which took a long time). It took about half an hour to get any drinks, people at my table just had an orange juice and still took that long. The venue was nice, clean and lively. Nice bathrooms too.
The ambiance was very nice. The food was amazing. The staff was wonderful. Definitely coming back to bring my friends.
Great food & service - good upgrades to outdoor area.
Another great night with family and friends and my brother (🤣) to celebrate my sons belated 18th.
Amazing staff very friendly. Great food.,good kids menu, enjoyable atmosphere.
Food was great and came out really quick, 3 out of the 4 people who served us smiled and were happy and chatty, and walked away feeling full :)
Service and food was 5 Star, lovely friendly staff. My kids and I really enjoyed our dining experience at The Merchant, would highly recommend.
A big thank you to Lara for doing a great job in organising my birthday function on Sunday afternoon. She made the booking experience so easy, and accomodated my budget with a fantastic menu, and drinks deal. She responded to my emails and phone calls/messages in a timely way, and nothing was too much trouble. The waitress who looked after us was wonderful too. So many of our guests commented on how great the food was as well. Many thanks to all the team.
Great food! Wide beer selection! Everything you need to finish the night.
Great food and great service
The risotto was too salty and other meals were not good.
Again everything was fantastic from Lance, Lara and their team with a special mention to Lina the bar manager who on the night had everything perfectly organised with the cake, service etc. My friend Lauren and mates had a great memorable night for her birthday. Well Done!!!!
Awesome event and function venue!! Was easy to book and no booking fee is very appealing
