The food here is consistency good - try the risotto or the steak or the fish of the day, all excellent. Every time we've eaten here it has been a great experience.

Had breakfast at Fairweathers when catching up with family. This is primarily an ale house but their breakfast choices were really good. One family member had eggs benedict which looked really good. Bacon and eggs were nice and good size. Would go there again

I order a basil scroll type thing with my coffee and a female waitstaff was extremely rude both when placing my order and when she delivered it, simply dropping it at my table without a word. Unsure of the name but she was short with darkish hair

Huge serving at an affordable price. Location is just in town and staff are always friendly to you. I like that their bar meals are available at all times.

Hubby and I went to Fairweathers for dinner tonight, a Sunday, booked a table at the restaurant, as opposed to the bar meals or casual dining cabinet food. (There is a choice of different dining styles at Fairweathers.) We skipped starters and kicked off with main course. We both had the fillet steak, cooked medium, and we were both very... More

Food wasn't good at all and on top an employee got fired at the table right next to us and was sobbing her eyes out... is that the way to treat people? I don't think so... have heard anything of common sense??? Never again!

Centrally located on lower Scott St. Spacious inside, and outdoors under perspex roof. Excellent food choice, good range of beers and other drinks.

Thank Ross C
