Great meal at Pedal Pusher. It was very busy but we still had fast service. Fish was beautiful, nicest ever had. Salad was so nice I could have had more! Not usual coleslaw! Fresh and tasty.
Recommend this restaurant!

The staff were friendly and attentive. They knew the menu well and were knowledgeable about the drinks. Nothing was a bother. What amazed us was that we didn't have to leave quickly, the restaurant had many patrons coming and going but we were able to stay several hours and have a leisurely meal.
The pork ribs were delicious and fell off the bone, the battered mussels were light and tasty and we enjoyed the seafood chowder. The butter chicken was ok but both the banofee pie and the chocolate Belgian molten dessert were divine. A great menu, would highly recommend.

When we arrived, a table was reserved for us, however we were still offered a choice of tables, which was nice. There was a good range of food and beverages (the online and in house menus differ slightly, so it may pay to ask your waitperson if there are other options, especially the beverages). We shared entrees of lamb & oregano meatballs and popcorn chicken, followed by mains of seafood chowder and pork belly accompanied by fondant potatoes and garden salad, all of which was excellent (a little more chunky seafood in the chowder would have made it perfect, but it tasted great). Regrettably we were too full for dessert, as we would have liked to try the cereal milk panna cotta and the poppyseed cake (there's always next time). The Mud House riesling and the Dog & Father APA were both most palatable.
Manny was a brilliant waiter, who remembered our orders and our names without needing a pad, and made the evening flow at just the right pace.
The music was varied and most enjoyable, set at a comfortable sound level.

As usual the food was awesome and the service great.

As someone who is gluten intolerant there are still decent choices but I would love to see some of the old gluten free small plates back on the menu, especially the calamari:)

Great range of Craft Beers, good food, good venue. Perfect for after a rugby game on Saturday afternoon.

Had a lovely young lady serving us. The food was ok and restaurant was nice until a big bus trip came in and then you couldn’t enjoy your meal as it became so noisy.

Its the second time I've been there with First Table and it was as good as the first. The food was great, staff were excellent. A nice friendly relaxed atmosphere. I'll definitely be going again!

There were four of us and we tried the curry dish, the steak and the chicken. They were all delicious. The curry had a beautiful flavour and the naan plus onion bhajis- yum!
Superb attentive service even though we were doing First Table!

The restaurant layout and menu had changed since we last visited (some time ago). More bistro than fine dining. Food was well presented and tasty. Select your meat (or fish) then select sauces and sides separately. Works well - especially if you're sharing. Our waiter was very helpful, attentive and friendly.

- dined at The Pedal Pusher on

Awesome atmosphere. Fast friendly service. Brilliant tasty meal, good portion sizes leaving us both well satisfied on both the quality and quantity of the meal.

We'll be back to try the Sunday roast

Great service but really below average food, i had to send mine back and most of ours wasn't nice at all. Such a shame to go out for a meal and the food is like this.

Kristie Agnew

The service was excellent except that it got busy with only one waiter on the floor so we had to go up to order. But they were so friendly and lovely.
The food was very below average, 5 out of 8 meals were almost inedible. Very poorly done. The popcorn chicken was great oh and the wine!

Amy Tweedie

Food was awful and the chef was not very accommodating when I asked if I could have chips and salad instead of veges. Also would not change the sauce to garlic butter. I asked for my steak medium, when it came out it was a tiny shriveled up piece of meat that was burnt to a crisp.
The manager however was lovely very helpful and agreed as well were the first meal of the day(there were.only 5 people dining at the time)that there shouldn't have been any issues. Even though she was really nice unfortunately I will not go back to try the food again.

Amie White

The food was outstanding and the atmosphere great, plenty of buzz going on but it was still easy to hear each other in general conversation. Slightly longer wait for the food than ideal, but aside from that would recommend!

- dined at The Pedal Pusher on

Nice environment, the server was abit confused about what the fish of the day was which to be honest should he hard to remember.
Whikst we were there another server spilt have a glass of Beer over another patrons table landing on a gentleman, his phone and clothes. The server walked away laughing while the patrons cleaned it up. Our meal was very good and no complaints about that. While we were eating a different server took another tables food to them but as she placed the plate down she smashed it onto a wine glass which proceeded to shatter. There seemed to be no care.
There was another server who was mostly delivering food wearing a big puffer jacket. It was very warm in the restaurant and it looked very unprofessional.
We asked to see the desert menu and waited 20 minutes for someone to come take the order which never happened. All in all the service was disgusting, but thankfully the food was tasty. Would have liked dessert.
Wouldn't go back to this branch.

Had the tempera battered fish and chips with as small salad.
Fish was good, chips were dry not crisp. Basic meal for after work. Very dark room not a place to take parents or children.

Once again lovely food and excellent service - gooey chocolate pudding worth the wait of it being freshly baked! Only complaint - bring back the Calamari and apple sauce would be a nice accompaniment for the Pork Belly
