Returned today (Tuesday) for lunch, ordered the seniors rump steak special - med to well done. Normally this is very good however today it came out as a "T-Bone"...it looked pretty good just the same. The meat was tough with gristle - hard to cut...More

Hi, Sorry you didnt get the correct meal, it seems you may have got a sports bar steak instead. I will pass this onto the chefs to make sure they are checking the meat quality when it comes in. Hope to see you again soon!

I have visited the Herdsman heaps of times through the restaurant but this was my first time in the sports bar. They had big screen TVs on the wall with the bar having a wide range of boutique and regular beers on tap. As it...More

I remember the good old days going to this pub and not sure how they can get back there . It’s certainly in a busy location. Possibly partition some sections and improve food quality would help. It’s looking tired. The staff seem bored and not...More

I have been to the Herdie quite a few times but went on a Monday for a change (not sure if that makes a difference) and that was the best steak sandwich I have ever had from there.

Great atmosphere here. We now pay and order our meal and drinks individually each person. We have previously had people forget to pay on leaving. Management is quite happy for us to do so.

Service is always slow. Today almost an hour for a salad. The food is average and the service is poor. Seasoned leather is passed off as chicken. Don't waste your time. Recommend canned soup instead

My partner and i dropped into the Herdy for a feed on a Wednesday night, looking for something different, and considering it was in the Entertainment Book. We stopped by just after 5pm, so the place was empty at this stage, perfect! Plenty of tables...More

We meet every 6 weeks at this tavern lovely meals, staff and service. Our complaint is that our orders are taken at our table. Great except every time someone forgets to pay before they leave and someone has to pay for them. Most annoying. We...More

This is a great place if you have kids and want to take them out for a play whilst you enjoy a meal and a few drinks. They have a playground within the restaurant so the kids can run wild while you're oblivious to anything...More

It's not fine dining, it's not designed to be. It's a family pub with good value meals that leave you satisfied. The staff are efficient and normally attentive and I've never had a bad meal here. Can't go past the parmigiana
