Lovely place, friendly staff but just unfortunate the air conditioning wasn’t working and it was very hot. Hopefully they will fix that problem and we will return.

Have to start this by saying the UFC was on so they were absolutely slammed, every table was booked when we got there at 12pm. Food still came out quickly, as ordered, and nothing was a problem for the staff. Great indoor kids area too. We had a large table and everyone was impressed with their food and the vibe of the place overall. Will definitely be back to check it out again. The large shared pizzas looked great for a group and I had some serious food envy.

Had a lovely Saturday night at The Peakhurst. The live music was great and as we were seated away from the musicians the volume didn't interrupt the conversation.

The meals were delicious and no doubt we will be repeat visitors

I had booked a table for 7 for an 8pm Dinner. I arranged to meet with my group at 7pm.

On arrival the only tables available (outside of the Resturant) was in the large open area full of smokers. Not great for those who don’t smoke. I asked the Resturant concierge who was able to seat our group early inside (thank you). Unfortunately if the table in the Resturant was not available it would have been uncomfortable for our group Of non smokers. Maybe when the renovations are finished, more room indoors smoke free may be available.

From the meals our group had, appeared to be enjoyed by all. I had the Ribs and found them to be a little bland, however the meat was very tender and enjoyable.

I also found that clearing of the tables after dinner were a little slack and we had to move plates to another table to creat room and remove the debris.

All in all everyone had a great night and would return.

Food & drinks Extremely overpriced. Food was pretty average. Second time going there to see if second time around was better with food but no. Service was very inexperienced, both times, bar staff had no idea about what glasses were to be used for champagne or Chardonnay, large small prices ect...: the actual place is lovely though.

Although the food and service was quite good the noise level (lots of people competing with a singer) was very high and made it difficult to have a conversation with people next to you.

Although the recent renovation resulted in a huge improvement on the old venue it's a pity they couldn't have provided more on-site parking.

Having said that, we were there on a Friday night so I expect it would be much quieter and parking would be easier on other nights.

Third time here found the food a little underwhelming. Sons burger was a little raw in terms of the meat. My meat was a bit tough. I think the menu needs to change it doesn’t cater to everyone’s palate. Bring back good old fashioned meals that everyone can enjoy 😉

The place looks amazing! A couple of people in our group had steak and said it was so tough and chewy, one persevered and ate it, the other said it was so bad that she just couldn’t. My schnitzel for the boscaiola was slightly overdone.
The staff were very friendly and efficient. The menu had many choices and the prices were fair. I would go again and order something different.

Have dined 3 times now and the food has been inconsistent and cold !!! Some of the management are rude and not very welcoming !! I know it’s just opened during the festive season and busy but it doesn’t cost anything to be friendly and accomodating .

For a new renovation, staff were pretty on the ball. A few teething issues with taking the orders but extremely friendly. Food was great and we didn't wait long at all.

Good first visit. Really strong menu. A few little service things let it down. Please don't wipe the table with a wet cloth whilst we're sitting at a table drinking and expect us to move our glasses and personal items. Piccolo served in a glass cup, you can do better. Will go again

We sat near the main bar and there was no air con and was filled with cigarette smoke. I would suggest closing the doors to the outdoor area to stop this occuring. It's not good for people with asthma.

Was bitterly disappointed unfortunately. Food was barely warm when it came out and had no flavor.
And don't get me started on the price of the food and $13 for a glass of Moscato and $7.50 for a schooner, more expensive then the City.
Parking, like what parking??? Needed to drive around the surrounding streets to find a park.
Kids playroom was another disappointment.
Was looking forward to a new pub locally, but unfortunately was disappointed by it all.
On a positive note the staff were lovely.

I would give another chance. Bistro buzzer didn’t go off. Went to bistro to check on starters & meals to find they were all up waiting but buzzer hadn’t worked. All starters & mains then ready at same time & only warm.

I understand there are some teething issues as it is a brand new establishment however food took an hour & the cocktail I ordered took 40 mins to be served. My family & I (inc. my 5mnth old son) dined at 6pm on a Sunday night. The music was ridiculously loud & we sat in silence as no one could hear one another talk. I had to take my baby outside at one point due to the loud music. I understand the relevance of the DJ on a Friday or Saturday night however on a Sunday night??? Diners were predominantly families with young children at the time we visited. I will not be going back as the venue is definitely not family orientated.

Chicken burger was pink and when I took it back to the kitchen the chef was VERY RUDE to me. Took over 30mins for a replacement meal to come out when our first meals only took 20mins. Disappointing
