“Service painfully slow”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Has all the ingredients to be a great venue but they need to seriously improve the speed at which they serve. So many disgruntled customers complaining about how long it takes to buy a drink. Excellent value, good menu, clean, new facilities. I would return but I would hope to see the service improve please !!

“An eye opener”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

First visit and cannot fault it for service and quality. This chain is sometimes slated as a hang out for low lives and drug dealing because of it,s cheaper drink prices but this establishment is perfect and provides a well deserved five stars. Which is more than can be said for the Harlow branch.

Have been in the port Jackson many times the staff are always very friendly. The quality of food is great for the price. Also the variety of beer is fantastic.

“Clean, Fresh and Friendly....”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

Went to this place to celebrate a relative's birthday last week. There were eight of us for lunch. The food was great value, fresh and fantastic for the money. We had a variety of dishes, from a Gourmet Hot Dog to Ribs to good old Fish and Chips and everyone enjoyed the food. The atmosphere was friendly and comfortable and the waiter was brilliant. He had a great personality and really looked after us well. My only issues are: you can't book a table, which can make fitting in a relatively large party difficult. I think bookings for parties of eight or more would be good. The second negative is that the outside seating is very limited considering the size of the pub. Other than that, the place is great, offers fantastic value for money and is a really nice place to sit for a few hours enjoying a good old natter and and a drink....or three. ;-)
