We stopped in here for a family brunch in the weekend. Great service including activity bags for the kids. Food and coffee were lovely too. Reasonably priced. No complaints at all.

“Won't be a third time!”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

My daughter [26] and I were on our way to Disney on Ice and thought we would grab brunch before hand. I had been here for our Christmas Dinner with work and it was great then. They were quite busy, but found us a table outside. I eagerly ordered the pancakes, with additional bacon, and asked for cream instead of the icecream. What I got was pancakes that had the tiniest drizzle of maple syrup over them {no Jug on the side} and had dried up by the time I got them, no cream no ice-cream, and very burnt bacon. MY pancakes were very dry and not nice at all. My daughter had ordered the French Toast, which said caramelised banana, the banana was fresh, and it had hardly any sugar/cinnamon coating on it. Two VERY poor meals, we were very disappointed. When the waitress came out she did ask how our meals were and I told her, her reply was that if we had booked we would have been better looked after,,,,EXCUSE ME??? I will not be returning.

“Restaurant quality food in Pub atmosphere”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Went to Pedal Pusher after recommendation from accommodation proprieter. Was so busy on Friday we could not get a table so went back on Saturday and were not disappointed. It was another busy night and service and food was great - The steak was to die for. After wandering the city on Sunday we decided that we would go back again - food and service was just as great.

“Poor Service”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Went to here for brunch this morning, sadly have seen standards drop even further since last time we were here. We had called in advance and made a booking and were seated promptly. We ordered some drinks, while we looked at the menu, took a long time for our drinks to be delivered, mine ended up not being what i had ordered and after i pointed that out to the waitress, she said it was a similar drink just with ice cream and was not given the option receive the drink i actually ordered. No water was given to us so had to go ask for some. Waited a long time for our orders to be taken, not too sure why as there was only a few other tables at the time, most who were already eating. Finally a new waitress saw we were still waiting and took our order. The person I was with asked for a half serving of the eggs Benedict which i would have thought would have been okay but apparently it would still be the same price. The waitress was extremely rude and unfriendly. Our food was good, average wait time, however the rude waitress definitely ruined the experience, when she came back to clear our plates she didnt ask how anything was at all, and just pushed in not asking if we were finished at all. Really unhappy with our experience, will not be returning or recommending.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Ticks all the boxes for us. Great gf choice for our coeliac daughter. Loved the vibe. Staff were happy which is greAt to see. Food great. Small criticism re scallops - not that great - too much oil or something. Otherwise would highly recommend.
