We had a booking but didn’t get a call to say eftpos down so had to go to pub next door to get cash out (for a fee). Young waitress was lovely. Food was very average, garlic bread looked like homebrand supermarket, meals were not that good, teenagers hardly ate the spaghetti bolognese. Decor in restaurant is pretty drab and not much atmosphere.

We were greeted when we arrived with ‘name’ after stating my name the waitress pointed to our table in the middle of the restaurant and we seated ourselves. We had no menus and waited 15 minutes before seeing someone. We asked for table water and menus. Another 15 minutes before orders were taken. We ordered entree and mains and drinks. Had to ask for table water again. 20 minutes later our drinks appeared with one missing. No food yet. Entrees arrived and they were cold! Still no garlic and cheese pizza. Asked a waiter to check on it and he didn’t return to tell us about the status of it. 15 minutes laster it turned up- burnt and like cardboard. I had to go to front counter to get drinks and water as did many other customers. The waitress was rude, no one cleared our tables, asked how everything was or came anywhere near us. The cruncher was when the mineral water we ordered was bought to the table in the plastic bottle, lid on and no glasses and when it was to share! Still no mains. We were there a little over 2 hours! We gave up and left as did many others without their meals! The staff there need to learn how to serve customers and clear tables, serve drinks and the chefs need to get food out in time so it isn’t cold when served. We will not be back!

I came in with 12 other family members and friends for dinner and was pretty disappointed with the service and the food. We were seated on a table in a very tight space where the waiters couldn’t even come around it. When we were seated we noticed that the plates on the table were dirty , we had to return them and ask for clean plates. We were asked to text through our order before coming into the restaurant. We waited quite a while for our order to come out and when it did they got our order wrong. The food was horrible. We weren’t happy at all. I’m not one to write reviews but this needed to be done.

We were greeted with warm smiles and greetings. From the servers' enthusiasm to the generous (delicious) meal portions of the Surf N Turf, Pork ribs and London pizza we were VERY satisfied!

Bought takeaway pizzas on a weekday night. Got reasonable amount of toppings with right amount of pizza sauce on very ordinary Domino, McCain like bases. I d say they have the same supplier as Dominos or when you order late or at a bad time, they pull some crap pizza bases out the Freezer and dump them on unsuspecting customer.
