We visited on a Sunday which was a quiet day, so that was good. Only problem I had, was that the booth we had near the bar. It was so dark I found it hard to eat my lunch, so perhaps more lighting is required in that area. Otherwise a nice place.

It was a lovely day so a lovely setting to sit and have lunch.
We had a waitress (young with long blond hair) and she was just gorgeous. Bubbly and friendly and acted like nothing was too much trouble, she went out of her way to ensure we had a lovely lunch.

A couple of friends ordered from the Kiosk and that was great, but others who ordered from the main restaurant waited over 1 hour, so we ate at a different time. I would recommend the place for drinks but not for a work lunch due to the delay with the food. This also has happened on at least another two occasions, not coming back.

Awesome pub, great food and sick place for a beer. Some staff were really helpful but one girl was really not happy to be at work and made each order difficult. Still would highly recommend this pub!

Food was of an excellent standard, and the selection great. Loved how you are able to pre-order should you be going for lunch weekdays. Would highly recommend

Went on fathers day. Love the greenery and design. Unfortunately the service was lacking in the pub section. A few staff totally mucking around and getting our order wrong. Ordered two of the same meal and they were completely different sizes as well.

We arrived on time for the booking at 11am however the kitchen was not open until 12 so we had over 15 people waiting for food for an hour with no prior notice that this would be the case. Disappointing.

Our family of 4, 2 younger children, enjoyed our meal and time at Garden State Hotel. The menu caters for kids and the place gets fairly busy/noisy around dinner time, but a great environment and seems to be a favorite for early 20's.
Best to book.
