Food was nice however portion sizes quite small. We are NOT volume people and eat out a lot but these portions were pretty small and definitely not value for the price that is being charged - $34 -$38 is towards the upper quartile. Unfortunately this is the factor that will not see us return.

Good place. Did take a little time to get underway! First drinks took sometime and was a wait for menus. Maybe this was done on purpose to slow orders to kitchen? But once all the above was fixed, it was really good.

Very helpful for coeliac - would highly recommend. Suckling pig as a main was on the small side - would have paid more for more pig. Entree suckling pig was perfect size.
Thank you for dining with us. We are always more than happy to help with dietary requirements.

Food was really good but service was a little cold and officious
Hi Anne, Thank you for your feedback. Glad you enjoyed the food. We are disappointed to have fallen short in a service capacity - we have taken the feedback on board and as a service team we are always working to bring a better experience to those dining at The Recreation.

Delicious menu either a la carte or shared. Good value for money given the quality and good noise level - even when full it wasn't too loud. Highly recommended.
Thank you for visiting. Glad that you had a great time
