Value for money

dined on Fri, 9 Mar 2018

All enjoyed our meals, the Butchers Pick steak meal was very good. Desert - cherries - was rushed as we had to leave and I don't think was very good value for $14 We will return pre theatre again

Came here before a comedy show at the Malthouse. Good atmosphere and value for money!

Booked dinner for six. Arrived at 6.30pm only to be notified that there is only one set be of fish left for the night. We were very disappointed that on Saturday night the fish wasn’t more readily available. Not great planning

Service was slow and food was mediocre

We went on a Sunday where the atmosphere was pretty dead/quiet however the food and service was good. Nothing really notable but also nothing to complain about (apart from maybe the burger bun which was either a bit stale or toasted too much to become dry).
