Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is the second year we have had Christmas lunch here. The staff are great.. the drunken snowman cocktail was delicious! Seafood is spot on… deserts are lovely although the little pavlovas could have done with some cream on them no the plum pudding barely...had any custard . Unfortunately the main course was disappointing.. it was barely warm. There may have been a Staff issue in the kitchen as we waited an hour and half between the seafood and main course. Unfortunately we won’t go back next year.More

Seriously hidden behind a car park but can still get noisy from Mona Vale Rd. It does have quite a nice beer garden though that really elevates it and even the sports bar isn't unpleasant and is reasonably quiet. Drinks and food are quite expensive...(even more than the beach suburbs up here, which is pretty stupid) except that they have quite a few good specials.More

Lovely food with a delightful waitress ( Sarah) warm and nice ambiance. Lost a star because the steak was served on a cold plate, otherwise really lovely evening.

This place gives pub food a great name. The place has the usual areas of a standard pub will pool rooms, TAB area and outside eating and drinking areas. The menu is large with pizza as well as is the range of drinks. You can...join the club system and receive discounts on already fairly cheap food and drinks. Service delivery to your table Large parking areas are also available around the pub. We had a great lunch, with cold beers and lots of time to chat in a peaceful environment with an open fireMore

I went with 4 other people for dinner and a midnight oil cover band. Everything was great until the end of the night when the bouncer tried to kick us out twice within 2 minutes after the band went off stage. The bars were all...closed bu that time so we couldn’t buy another drink. That is perfectly understandable and I know what licensing laws mean. All we wanted was to finish our existing drinks but the over officious bouncer was borderline aggressive and it really soured the evening. We are a bunch of 50 something people and we had no intention of staying much longer. But the bouncer was a 20 something (or maybe 30 something) guy who got carried away with his power. It’s a pity as it will make us think twice about going back to this venue which was otherwise really goodMore

You’re only allowed to buy one drink per person after a certain time, what are we? Kids? So as a couple you both have to leave the table to get a drink. Pathetic.

We live locally at st ives and use to come to the tavern often before covid hit and we have not been for quite a while and we were so disappointed. I booked a table on line and found it to be seamless and very...professional but unfortunately this does not spill over into the actual tavern. The experience I had last week, there was 5 of us and my sister in-law had travelled from Epping. Staff members seem to be very young and inexperienced and lacking simple customer service procedures and professionalism. We found our reserved table and when ordering two of us had steak sandwiches delivered almost 20mins before our other three meals of the fishermen plate and two rump steaks that were ordered as medium/rare but clearly the chef was only able to dish up rare . Salad was much to be desired and my poor mums fisherman plate was lacking major flavour and the calamari was absolutely revolting, tasteless and served cold my poor mum was so upset with the entire dish especially at a price of $36 My advice would be stay at home and make a beautiful meal because the tavern really feels dated, un inviting, very unprofessional and food has really gone down because I remember it as great food and great value with a great atmosphere but now with so many more clubs and pubs near by that have been done up and offering so much more I think the tavern needs to step up and the most important thing customer service has to be a stand out if you want local support.. Very disappointing experienceMore

A fairly poor meal compared to the other occasions I have eaten here. Have the kitchen staff changed recently? As a party of ten, four people were unsatisfied with their meals. Two of us had the Grilled Barramundi Fillet. The chips and salad were fine....The barramundi was over cooked and chewy. Probably as it was a very thin fillet. One person had the Southern Fried Chicken Burger. This came out extremely quickly. The chicken had a soggy batter and the centre of the chicken was cold. One of us had the steak sandwich which had a very thin piece of steak which was underwhelming. Luckily, the other meals served were enjoyed. The staff were friendly and efficient. The ambiance was enjoyed. Strongly suggest that the focus should be on quality instead of quantity. Just to confirm that I have eaten at this bistro on many occasions on which I usually enjoyed the meal. I don’t think I’ll be returning in the near future.More
