Stopped in here with a bunch of people from work after the staff Xmas Party. Service was superb and the cocktails just as good. Highly recommended.

Limited menu meant hard to choose (I guess due to COVID-19). We had a dessert which was exquisite. Waited was very knowledgeable and helpful and we had a great seat by the window. Unfortunately my dark and stormy was way overdone with bitters, which suggests...a very poor bartender?More

I enjoy going to Grain whenever I want to go to a quiet bar without all the loud music and crowds trying to have conversations on top of each other. They offer a good selection of spirits and attentive table service.More

We visited Grain for a drink after being disappointed by the bar in Cafe Sydney. The ambience was lovely, and the drinks menu extensive. However,after placing our order we were told that one of the gins we wanted was no longer being stocked. When the...drinks arrived the other gin we ordered was not what was delivered! The bar man rectified this quickly however. A nice bar with a classy ambiance.More

We were present on the oyster & champagne evening and the oysters were excellent and very good value. The bubbles were biscuity and tasted like a decent branded bottle of bubbly. We would recommend this as a bar worth a visit.More

The staff was very nice, the prosciutto and artichoke appetizer was delicious, drinks were good, atmosphere was very nice, but the only reason I’d rate it 4 stars and not 5 is the service was a little unorganized.More

Oysters were locally sourced and fresh but that’s where the good review ends. I ordered a vodka with cranberry but alas the waiter informed me that they only serve fresh squeezed juice and cranberry is not available. So, I switched to vodka with orange juice...and I can tell you that contrary to what the waiter had stated, it was not freshly squeezed and obviously came out of a carton. My husband had trouble getting a craft ale and our friends were also told their drink selections were also not available and were likewise forced to switch. This is supposed to be a high quality bar in a five-star hotel but the standard is lacking.More
