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.

Quick stop to have a bite to eat. Both service and food was exceptional, granted it was quite quiet. Arguably the best chicken wings I have ever had and my husband said his steak sandwich was outstanding.

I had the chicken parmigiana which could be the best I have had in 20 years. Moist, delicious and a good size. My wife had the Chefs Creation (see pics)and said 'wow'. She is a very fair critic and did not expecr the flavour combination...to work but ordered it anyway. She was extremely impressed and very surprised that it worked as well as it did. The staff were excellent and the atmosphere lovely.More

My wife and myself we there for lunch on Tuesday January 31, 2023. I ordered a rump steak & salad & my wife Tracey a full rack of ribs. We were served our meals in very quick time and the food was just delicious. The...wife and I have travelled extensively around the world and particularly in the US. Now thru experience we have had some very bad outcomes with our two meals. My steaks have gone from bleeding in the middle to burnt. The ribs has been a lottery with some very good places to very very poor outcomes. The wife was reluctant to order the ribs but she gave it and go. She was delighted as the ribs were very moist and fell off the bone as you would want them to be. A great pub with great beers & wine and excellent food. The staff were very friendly and happy to oblige our requests. We will be back again.More

We enjoyed the food here so much we had dinner the first day and lunch the next! My partner enjoyed a Senior's Roast (pork: $14.00) and I couldn't believe how good my 200g eye fillet ($32.00 and butterflied at my request) was. It was cooked...perfectly and accompanied by wok-fried vegetables. There was so much on the plate it was like feeding a horse! But I persisted, helped by a bottle of Hardy's Chardonnay ($26.00). The next day we each relished our luncheon selection of perfectly cooked, moist, tender and flavourful Chicken Schnitzel ($14.00 each), accompanied this time by a bottle of Hardy's 19 Crimes Chardonnay ($26.00) . The service was friendly and efficient, the ambience muted (lots of wooden panelling and photographs of yesteryear Atherton) and it was hard to believe that you were dining in an hotel.More

COVID19 safe service from entry to well spaced tables. A cool cafe on a humid day 34C - good coffee & fresh tasty carrot cake. Range of options chosen by other diners, who appeared to be locals.There are so many cafes in the main shopping...area - I chose this one because there was no crowding inside. I recommend to other travellers exploring the area.More

Enjoyed a nice dinner here last night. The service though made it a really enjoyable evening. Every person I dealt with through the night had a smiling face and couldn't do enough to ensure I was happy with everything. I had eye fillet with prawns...and vegetables. Good selection of wines and beers, and they do cocktails. Great night, and will definitely be back.More

It's hard not to feel sorry for restaurants or bistro's trying to put on a decent menu during these times, but at least this place tried. There was a half-decent menu and a pretty large room in which to eat. I should imagine that once...the tables and chairs are returned to their normal positions and this return to normal, it will be a nice and reasonable place to eat in Atherton.More

It started when we arrived. We waited 10 minutes at the door for attention. They'd lost our online booking, but seated us anyway as they had space. The line to order food was the same line to buy a drink at the bar - one...girl serving, 6 deep, 10 -15 minutes. I couldn't get the drinks in while waiting to order because my children were under 18. The waiter was absolutely lovely. She didn't wear a name badge but she was the one with strawberry blonde hair. I would like the management to teach her about wine, for example how to pronounce merlot and pinot noir. This is not her fault, its the management. She was great at customer service. The first meal came 40 minutes after ordering. The second 46 minutes after, and the last 2 meals at 52 minutes after ordering. Have to say they had a very large table of about 20 that ordered before us. The pizza was homemade, including the bases and they were fantastic. The "Best" steak sandwich was actually fabulous, kudos to the chef on that one. It was delivered by the Assistant Manager who was possibly cheffing for the night, as he didn't come out of the kitchen apart from that. The AM did apologise for the delay. Over all, we will try somewhere else tonight for a more organised experience.More
