Great service staff were friendly, they came across as really happy and did a great job a pleasure to be served by smiling happy staff. The food was really good steaks cooked to perfection, the cheesy garlic bread is also worth a mention yummy. Hubby thought the mash with bacon was not to his taste, he said a plain nice creamy mash with butter is unbeatable. The side of green vegetables were good and not to overcooked. Shamefully we cleared our plates and left no room for desert. Maybe next time!!!!

Service was amazing, very attentive waitresses thank you for making our night a pleasurable one.

Our beautiful cuts of steaks were over cooked asked for medium rare & both steaks Sirloin and T-bone were well done not one smidgen of pink in it. Not really someone to return a steak back to the kitchen especially 2 steak meals to be re-cooked lol..So ate it anyway. Buffalo wings were dry & tough so only managed to eat 4 from the dozen. Won’t order those again. Calamari and baby back ribs were good.

Other than that, which we feel needs another mention, the table side service was excellent. Would return again one day to give it another try in the future. Cheers

Very busy place at 6.30pm on Friday evening so struggled to find some parking. However great atmosphere, great service and lovely food. We had garlic chilli prawns and mushroom and leek soup for entree, followed by eye fillet and sirloin main with a side of onion rings.

The service and food was great. The only down side was that it was little noisy but then again it was 6:30 on a Friday so after works drinks in full flow. Have used the pub for drinks only and always a good time

We arrived to a busy and rowdy Irish pub on a Friday, so of course it was expected! So keep that in mind when booking for a Friday/Saturday. The service was excellent - very attentive and friendly. The food was good - large servings and the chicken in the burger was to die for! Unfortunately there were a few items unavailable due to a function earlier. Overall, very happy with our experience and would definitely go back :)

What was intended as a chilled night to have dinner and head home ended up as an unexpected all nighter.
We were seated in the dining area which was really good due to the ambience and being seperate from the general pub goers.
The music was at the perfect level where we could have a decent conversation with each other without yelling.
The host was very good, he assisted us with our beer choice and offered starters, he was very patient while we took quite a while to decide on our dishes which eventually were the chicken breast and fish meals. The waiter also mentioned the Tuesday comedy night which sounded like a good night out.
After our meals they played the Rugby which we decided to move in front of the fireplace and watch, perfect spot to watch the footy.
The meal was good the service was very good and the ambience was brilliant.
After the rugby a 2 piece band started playing and that was us for the rest of the night.
Thanks for a great evening and a visit to the comedy night looks a likely revisit.

You wouldn’t expect such great food to come out of a pub kitchen but it did. The special was a duck dish and it was succulent and delicious. The other diners were just as happy with their meals. Excellent, friendly service. Thanks to all the staff from a group of very satisfied diners.

A lovely evening! Easy parking and a welcoming atmosphere. The pork belly was moist, scrumptious and tasty. My husband loved the burger and fries and our friends raved about the lamb and calamari. Portion sizes were very generous. We also found out that Tuesday night is quiz night which gave us some unexpected entertainment. Thanks Doolan Brothers, we will be back!

Great service, lovely food and a brilliant atmosphere. We shared some chicken nibbles to start, My Partner had the Doolan burger and loved it, was so full after, I had pork belly and the waitress advised it wasn’t the largest dish on the menu if I was very hungry so I ordered some garlic bread on the side however I couldn’t finish it all either - obviously she meant compared to the rest of their dishes! classic pub food, really great value for money and the cocktails came out quickly and were so divine!

Awesome atmosphere-
It was busy and not too much of a wait for the food which was awesome.
The food was a great size and super tasty!
The only thing I could suggest to make it better was the heat of the place was rather high so a fan or air conditioning being on would be so much better

All over it was a great experience
