Nice setting. Lasagne appeared pre cooked and microwaved. Steak was ok but slightly under-cooked to what was asked. Felt there was not enough time between courses. Overall nice to try somewhere different.

Food was really nice. Sticky toffee pudding is really nice with the caramel sauce. The only thing that could of been better was more chips with the ribs.

We live on the other side of town and don’t usually eat out around Bishopdale, but we thought we try something different. When we pulled up outside we were greeted with a dilapidated exterior and upon entering the restaurant there was an army of pokey machines.
We were immediately welcomed though and were taken to our table. From there on things just got better and better. The satay chicken skewers and dumplings were perfectly cooked and delicious. For mains I had steak which was cooked to perfection, my partner had salmon which he said was amazing.
What made our meal really special though was our waitress, Wai. She was so polite and friendly and gave us just the right amount of attention without being overbearing. I have no doubt that with her attitude she will go far in life and if Bishop Brothers wants to keep her she should get a pay rise pronto! I’ve had much worse food and service in some of the top restaurants in town! Give Bishop Brothers a go!

Absolutely fabulous all round. We experienced a blowout of 1 of our tyres on the way, we rang to say we would be running late for our reservation. No problem, take your time and drive in safely, they told us and when we arrived quickly settled in , given our wine and told to just relax before they came back for our order, we felt so pampered and looked after, after our rush. Food was just melt in your mouth, hot and very warming. A delicious cheesecake to finish and home we went with a warm fuzzy and full tummies.

The food and service were great & generous, a very quick turn around between courses - would have been nicer to have a little bit longer between, but other than that, a great evening!

We did enjoy the ribs and roast pork of the day altho it had no crackling. The dessert, sticky date pudding and apple strudel, was overall much nicer than some other places that we've been. Would definitely come back to try the other dishes in the menu.

Had Angus steak was absolutely fantastic, wife loved her pasta, kids had good meals. Dessert we had the apple strudel, not as great as the main. Bit chewy I assume from being reheated in microwave but still nice

Very friendly and welcoming staff who attended your needs throughout the evening. Our second visit to Bishop Bros and will be back again.
One very small negative I feel was the courses were too close together and slightly rushed.

The four of us could not fault the food at all, all the meals were prefect the only downfall was the noise from the public area with it not having a wall separating it

There were four of us dining and three of us had steaks - all cooked perfectly with 2 medium rare and one medium and they all came out together.
The service was great, they came and asked us for drinks and checked on everything and they even took our order without writing anything down.
The restaurant furniture is a bit tired but the service and food made up for it, after all it is a public house so it isn't fine dining but it is definitely value for money I thought.
