I gave a VG rating to this restaurant when we dined there this time in 2016. Went back last week and had almost exactly the same dishes as last time - a tequila chicken salad for S and fish and chips for me. S thought her meal was poorly plated in a deep bowl, the salad had far too much... More

Had lunch at this restaurant. Wasn't sure what to expect judging by some of the negative comments. We had the lamb rump, which we requested rare. The meal was a good size and the lamb cooked as requested. I would definitely go again. Used the entertainment card, this made for a very reasonably priced lunch.

Couldnt fault the friendly service but the food was average. My husband and I ordered the Jack Daniels Ribeye and it didnt live up to the menus description. Steak was meant to be marinated for 48 hours but there was no hint of it or any other marinade, at least it was cooked well. The accompanying "shallots" were just big... More

I was there for a family meal. Our meals were very disappointing and overpriced for what it was. My Tequila Chicken was more like a Caesar salad pricing at $28!!! With little surprises of anchovies!! Really Why?? (of which I wasn't asked if I wanted them removed when ordered!) Although the staff were very nice and friendly. The starters were... More

After driving past this place many times decided to try it one night and it was much better than what we expected. Great big burgers although the meat wasn't great and some of the best chips I've ever had. Other people in the group were really impressed with their meals. Will definitely be back although it is slightly overpriced.

We ordered the seafood chowder, calamari Vietnamese salad and the meat lovers pizza. Friendly staff and quick service. Recommend to any family.

Gathered 3 generations of our family last week for dinner at the Brickworks, and while table service was friendly the kitchen let the place down badly. My brother's Prawn Cocktail disappointed him as the seafood was tiny shrimps and not prawns. Two of us ordered beef schnitzel with onion gravy in a separate container so our chips didn't get soggy.... More

Our meals were very disappointing and overpriced. My Caesar salad was minimalistic and my partner had squid which was far from crisp. At $22.00 a head this was unacceptable as we could have got better for $16- $18.00.

We took our parents out for a Christmas lunch (for the first time), and chose here for the casual atmosphere. The services was just incredible, absolutely not what I was expecting from a pub. Food was not too bad either. While the website showed a vegetarian option, this didn't show on the table menu, but there was no problem when... More
