What a great distillery and bar supporting so many local/Australian gins! Staff were super knowledgeable about the product and made the experience enjoyable. Such an awesome, industrial and modern vibe. Will definitely we back!
Fantastic food and great music. This isn’t a cheap night out but it was totally worth it. Great table service and everything was the quality you’d hope for when you go out for a nice night!
Cocktails were nice, Service was slow, considering not many there cheese/meat board a little expensive for the quantity
Would love to try a tasting
A great find! Beautiful food and great gin tasting!
Food and service was great and drinks were really nice. We sat in the back bar when band was on and it was a little bit too loud to have a conversation but still was a great night - The band was good so we didn't mind.
Would definitely go back.
A great change to just going to the pub, excellent time.
I didn't realise the table was only booked for 2 hours - we were moved along. That was unexpected.
The food was beautifully presented but lacked in flavour and depth. The service and ambience were outstanding! Very lovely staff. The drinks were amazing, and fairly priced too - which meant we got to try more. I would go there again ❤️
Not quite the restaurant I had imagined but great ambience, intelligent staff and a wondrous bar - including house distilled gin aged No 8 (& others). It was a great way to pass a wet Autumn Friday afternoon & we look forward to visiting at other times. We shared a charcuterie & a cheese plate which were both excellent & generous - the seafood was running late but obviously would be fresh on arrival!
Excellent gin and cocktails. The atmosphere and decor are a bit clinical. Maybe not right for a romantic date or a cosy afternoon with friends, but a great place if you’re focusing on tasting the drinks.
The quantity of Gin for sampling was very meagre for $25, we could have purchased a couple of gin cocktails and had some change.
Cheers Martin McGrevy
Amazing cocktails!! Great atmosphere and delicous tasing boards.
Brilliant tasting host and wonderful, unique gins and spirits to try - highly recommend!
We went along for the great live Jazz music. Well done Earp, for supporting music !!
Great setting and service - good to see support for local wineries on the drinks list
Had a beautiful night- the staff were so friendly and accomodating.
I’m not a confident gin drinker and they provided easy to understand info.
Love their energy!
I probably wouldn’t make it a stop for a substantial dinner. It’s more grazing style.
The food was beautiful though!
Service was poor as were told it was table service only to have to approach the bar to order drinks on multiple occasions. Pleasant when they served us but went missing after that.
Great venue, great food and beverages. I’ll definitely be back soon
Great food, top quality gin, friendly staff, and amazing music. Earp is my new favourite dinner and music venue. Keep the good bands coming!
Beautiful venue with excellent cocktails. Great live jazz band.
Beautiful food , easy to get too , great range of alcohol .
Service was very slow, there were more staff than people and the staff were more interested in walking around the place than serving you. It was like they were deliberately avoiding you
We had a fun few hours here. Though the gin was obviously the main attraction, lunch was delicious. The staff could not have been more obliging, and took the time to explain the gin making process and the different varieties. We tasted some great gin varieties, and even got an 'informal' tour of the distillery. We'll definitely be going back. Highly recommended.
Great atmosphere and great drinks! Fantastic day night spot
Great service, great atmosphere, fabulous gin 👌🏼
A greatly welcome and more refined addition to Newcastles's social scene. Highly recommended!
Great location, excellent selection, great staff. Venue is awesome
The drinks were lovely
However despite our best efforts we could only get 3 drinks in 2 hours the service was really bad.
We ordered a 3 rd round but the ordered was forgotten so we left and went to the Cri around the corner.
Shame the drinks were good.
Ally was THE BEST bar staff. She was SO chirpy and engaged with every one of our party of 5. She was knowledgeable and fun. 10 / 10 ! Thanks for the DELICIOUS cocktails.
The service was really slow. Disappointing. We could of had more drinks if it didn’t take so long! Doing the business a disservice by taking so long.
Service was disappointing and they clearly had an agenda to sell specific Gin.
We were missing food from our share platter.
Overall a disappointing experience.
We had a great night tasting the delicious gins whilst enjoying a cheese platter. The bar staff had great knowledge of the drinks and we're helpful with their suggestions. A great place to bring visitors from out of town. We will be returning more frequently, the ambience is fantastic!
Good range of gins and spirits, including the Earp collection of ‘home made’ gins and limoncello.
Staff were extremely helpful and friendly! Loved the cocktails and cheeseplate! Would (and have) definitely recommend a few sneaky drinks here!
Fantastic atmosphere, service was amazing! The cocktails were all very delicious, I think they have the best espresso martini in Newcastle!
Drinks were lovely but staff not so much. Felt like we were not wanted and even spoken to rudely at times. Was my second visit and probably won't be back unfortunately.
Wonderful experience! A must place to go! The Gin alone is worth it! Great food just not a lot of options. Try the Rhi-barbie cocktail
A really enjoyable afternoon spoilt only by the waitress who was a little rude, unfriendly and appeared to not want to be at work. Hope she is ok
2nd visit here. 1st visit 5 stars.
This time arrived 10 minutes early and had to wait over 30 min in the corner before being seated on the lounge which was not comfy.
Then waited another 30 minutes plus before our first drink.
A really beautiful space with excellent Gin, Cocktails and Food. Extremely friendly, accommodating staff - nothing was too hard to make happen. Overall, fabulous experience.
