I can thoroughly recommend The Brewery for a wedding reception. The details were well attended to, the food was delicious and the staff very professional. The food was delivered quickly to the tables, no one had to wait for drinks. The atmosphere was fantastic. Great night.

Such a great setting for enjoying an afternoon drink with family. The wings were very tasteful ! It is the original general post office and there are signs of a past era. Wait staff were exceptional!

After visiting the Brewery we were approached by a doorman with a beard. He stated to a friend remove your hat in an aggressive tone. Very unprofessional. Were in the premises does it say dress attire. Very embarrassing for all involved. The doorman needs retraining .

Decided to head into town for dinner whilst down visiting local friends, and made a booking here based on reviews and recommendations of others. Restaurant looks nice with ambient lighting but can get very noisy. My friend and I asked for mocktails - the waitress was fairly vague about what she could provide, advising that she could make something up... More

The Malt Restaurant has a small selection of interesting entrees and mains. Aside from the steaks, the mains averaged around $30 which is reasonable. The service was very attentive, although it might benefit from wait staff having allocated tables so that 2-3 wait staff didn't ask us each time if the meal was nice or whether we needed a drink....
