Amazing service!! Our waiter took our long order without writing it down, knew all about the menu, happily moved us away from a large noisy group, had a fantastic sense of humour and happily took a number of pics for us whilst carefully arranging the plates of food so they looked good in the pic!
The food was equally impressive. We loved the risotto balls.
Definitely recommend pedal pusher!

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.

The table was set up for us and we were warmly greeted and attended to in a timely way. The food was enjoyed by all. The gluten free burger bun was very good quality, the Caesar salads were tasty with perfect eggs and both the steak and lamb shoulder were tender with tasty sides.
The panacotta with mango was a light and delicious end to the meal.

The service was just lovely. We felt like a guest in their home more so than a customer.
Our family felt so comfortable there.
Food was good but the service is what we will remember and go back for

It is a nice lunchtime for me and my friend. Food is not very impressive, but the ingredients are fresh and the price is sufficient. Also, the decoration of the restaurant is very distinctive that is including many elements of bicycles. It is worth mentioning that the waitress is a nice lady. We want to try their dinner next time.

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:)

Would not recommend unfortunately. The food was below average with only certain foods available on certain days. Very little vegetarian options.
Not family friendly as the smell of cigars and cigarettes woofeded through into the restaurant.

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.

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
