    Good needed more flavor. If you have to add salt to your meal at a restaurant there is an issue!

    Giving the fact the menu isn't that vast, we still waited 45 minutes for food to arrive. Food was ok, but not out of this world, which you'd expect when going out. Servings were small, meals quite expensive. Not sure if we'll be back.

    We were unhappy as food was substandard. Waiter service good. We ended up going after mains as didn't want to continue with meals. We bought dessert elsewhere. Very unhappy. My husband is vehement no return to the Girl and Bull.

    Thank you for having us! It was our first visit since COVID and didn’t disappoint. We had the most wonderful dining experience, everything was perfect. Beautiful food, excellent service (a lovely young man), lovely venue with great atmosphere and great menu selection. It's also very family friendly and had some great options for the kids. So impressed and made a special occasion (early Father's Day celebration) even more special.

    It was ok. Not as good as I hoped it would be for the price. My rating is mostly due to the food which was nothing special. A shame because it’s such a lovely looking venue with friendly staff.

    We always enjoy dining in at this restaurant and will definitely return. This time we had to ask to move to a larger table as we had 4 on our table and it felt squishy. So we moved to a larger table and had plenty of room, which was lovely and more comfortable. We felt a bit pushed out. We had finished our meals and drinks and were sitting and chatting. The waitress came over with the eftpos machine and waited for us to pay. This made us feel like we were expected to leave the restaurant. Whilst sitting there, the kitchen was doing their usual nightly clean. They were using either bleach or ammonia and the smell traveled through the restaurant and was burning our eyes. Overall the food was beautiful and staff were friendly. Also the door had to keep getting locked as the wind kept opening it up. People on numerous occasions were knocking on the door trying to get in and this door had to keep being unlocked and locked the whole night.

    Food and service was great, just disappointed we were given a table just inside the front door on a very cold night, as people entered the restaurant it was freezing. There were plenty of tables empty in the restaurant and we asked if we could be moved... which we were.... 1st time there and will definitely be back..

    Lovely food, very well cooked. My only criticism is the service - it took an age to get a drink and it would seem that the art of correct multiple clearing has been lost. For a restaurant of this quality, I would expect better than to just have all the plates piled on top of each other at the end of the table and carried off in a wobbly stack. Perhaps asking the patron if they would like another drink rather than 'Are you OK for drinks here' would perhaps also add to the experience. Some training wouldn't go amiss here. Otherwise, a great place to eat.

    Calamari was nice. Barramundi was overcooked and dry and really needed a sauce to go with it. Seafood in linguini was cooked nice but tasted of chilli and not much else. Staff were relaxed and friendly.

    Last minute dinner booking at a place we’ve never been before and what an absolute delight. One of the best cocktails we’ve tasted and the food was efficiently served at a great quality. A suggestion for improvement is to consider the saltiness of the dishes. The oysters kilpatrick, vegetable gyoza and pork were well cooked but just a tad on the salty side.
