Excellent service and food. Had approx. 20 people attending for lunch based on platters, pizzas and sharing plates and was very happy with everything.

Came out with 3 friends for a birthday dinner. Food was OK. Mix up and delay to be seated, even though it was booked and we checked in 15 minutes before our reservation time. That been said our front of house person gave excellent service and we enjoyed his chatter.

Whoa, really whoa! This could be the best western-style restaurant/bar I have ever enjoyed. Unlike some other restaurants which have reasonably high ratings zomato and actually suck, this one truly deserves a better rating. With it unique atmosphere, friendly service and excellent food, it has earned number one on my list. I am happy with every dollar I spend, amount of food is great, taste is not questionable. I would really recommend this place!

A big thank you at the team at The Merchant for hosting our work social drinks last Wednesday. The staff were friendly and accommodating. We also appreciated the food quality and the set up that they arranged for our group (which encouraged a lot of socializing etc)

We shared the Full Butchers Platter which was delicious! All meats were so tender. Our only comment would be that we could have done with more of the sauces.

Great food, far better than expected for a pub-restaurant,. We ordered a beef burger and chicken risotto, the flavours were great and portions size large. Good wine list and friendly service. We will be back.

We had great night, the Thai Curry mussels were particularly good. Prices are a little on the high side but the meals were all of a very good standard. Happy to recommend this venue.
