Awesome and friendly staff very welcoming. I had the beef burger and it was fantastic juicy from the first bite to the last just as it should be. My compliments to the chef. I would go back anytime on first table or pay full price. Cheers all the staff at The Pedal Pusher

Always love visiting the pedal pusher especially on a sunny day and getting all the afternoon sun as you enjoy dinner. First table also happened during happy hour which was such an added bonus as even more savings! We enjoyed starters to share and a delicious steak each as a main. Unfortunately no gf desserts but we were very full by this point so definitely not needed. Would highly recommend if you’re looking for a more low key setting but food that is full of flavour with great service.

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.

From the moment we arrived at Pedal Pusher the service was very warm and friendly. The atmosphere was nice, with classics playing on the speakers. We both ordered the Big Breakfast, and it was huge! It kept us going on a long day! The food was excellent, and my coffee was also very good. Would come here again

Super busy place but I say that was due to a concert that night, hence why we were there to. They handled the crowd very well. Good atmosphere, lovely staff! A+++

It's been a long time since I have noticed service being so customized to the client. Whilst we were laughing, joking and taking the Mickey, the people next to us were a lot more serious and the staff took it all in their stride and were amazing!!

Add to that the melt in your mouth pork belly and the ice cold cider on a hot day and I cant have asked for anything more

Enjoyed a lovely meal here with super-friendly service.

It was basic food done presented nicely. We both had the fish and chips. Salad was great and more than just greens thrown on a plate. The only thing that let the meal down was the fish was not lovely and white. Otherwise good value.

We had a most enjoyable night. The meal was great and I'd happily suggest others eat there too. Plus the service was faultless

The service was very friendly but we waited almost one hour for the meal. The shoulder lamb was the strangest meat I have tasted. Not sure of its origin.

Fabulous service with all their team working together to make sure we were well looked after and able to get to our live theatre booking less than an hour from arriving at The Pedal Pusher. Definitely recommend to all

We dont get out for dinner much. We had been to the pedal pusher before and thoroughly enjoyed it. So we booked on first table and came back.
When we arrived, we asked if we could sit outside. It was lovely and warm outside and we wanted to enjoy it.
The waitress was incredibly rude about this, she had set up a different table and made it quite clear it was an issue that she had to move the menu and water outside.
We then were asked about our drinks. My husband asked if you had Speights, in an incredibly rude manner the woman said this is a restaurant not a pub.
My husband said excuse me I didn't hear you, clearly he heard her but was so taken back by her incredibly rude manner he wanted her to repeat herself. She didn't.
She then came back to take our order, which she also had an issue with and then didn't put our fries through so we had to order these again.
As I mentioned, we don't get out much so this really made the whole dinner incredibly awkward.
The food however, was wonderful! We got a selection of small plates and the chicken burger.
We won't be back.

Mandeep is the definition of a great restaurant manager. He only has client satisfaction in mind and he does it all with a smile.
The food was excellent and I will definitely go back for more.

Good food and service. It was nice and busy as well which added to the atmosphere. The only things that brought it down from 5 stars was the wings we ordered we very hot/spicy (but thats possibly our taste buds) and the busyness meant that our table couldn't be brought inside in time so we had to use a higher table/bar leaner.
But over all a good experience, we would go back again. :)

Great service but load atmosphere. the food was tasty (desert was yummy) but the steak was chewy :-(

- dined at The Pedal Pusher on

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.
