I've been before for a drink but tonight we headed in for a meal. The drinks list was boring and the menu was nothing special so we left.

Went for dinner midvweek. Really noisy could not hear the waitress. Looked at menu quite pricey very small range of choices particularly for vegetarians. Ended up leaving and going next door.

I had dinner here after a very long day. I was craving for any sort of beef, and The Pedal Pusher fulfilled my desire. This was my 2nd time around, as I had good memories from my previous visit from last year. The beers were good by then, and so were the fish and chips. I ordered the rib eye... More

I would easily dine out there again. The atmosphere was great & the food was so lovely. I so loved my mains & after me & my friends got a platter (that 1 of my friends finished as their main) we were all so full that we didn't even have dessert

I had the Thai Beef Salad which was spicy and delicious, my friend had the fish & chips. He is very fussy about his fish and commented that it was excellent. Next... More

We recently went to this restaurant and had a very nice meal, an excellent steak and mushroom pie, lots of filling and a lovely shortcrust? pastry with mash and peas. Reasonably expensive but nice. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good ambience.

Service was great with the Maitre de (with the beard..should have name tags) supplying a great wine recommendation again. My mates Seafood Chowder i am told, was the best he has had, and i must admit that my confit Duck was huge and... More

Is it me or have all the coffee shops started closing early?! I've several times arranged to meet for business meetings in the Addington area only to get turned away from places like Mrs Hucks and the Addington Coffee Co-op as they are in the process of closing. Not so with the Pedal Pusher. Good service and happy to serve... More

Very popular restaurant and you can see why from the moment you arrive. Great bar atmosphere. We had bar snacks from the menu which was delicious.
