The service as usual are good and the food pork belly and lamb was excellent though the salmon was slightly overcooked. The pork belly is a must. Try it!

Took my 80year old neighbour out for tea for all she does for me over the year, first time she had been out for dinner since losing her husband and she fully loved it, meal was a bit too big for her so she quite happily asked the waitress if she could take the left over garlic bread and half her meal home wish she had the next day, the waitress couldn't have been more helpful and kept checking on us for drinks and to see if meal was good, the cook that cooked the steak did the perfect job of it cooked rare and so tender

Great as always, I think the portion size might have changed a little, but that's OK because it left room for dessert! Would recommend to anyone, the waitress is lovely and meals are quick.

Our waitress was great very friendly and attentive, offered our son colouring straight away and was nice to him. We had dumplings and polenta chips to start dumplings were delish but polenta very over cooked had a shortbread texture and clearly looked over cooked so not sure why they still served it. For mains we had steak and pork belly (nothing to write home about but it filled the gap) good place for kids and casual dinner out.

The food was alright, bit salty though. One staff took an order and made two things wrong.

WOW.... I was pleasantly surprised. We had never been before and when going online to book our dinner, the restaurant that we wanted to book was sold out. I don't usually like trying new places as I have been disappointed before, but I can honestly say that I am glad that we chose to eat at Bishop Brothers. The food was amazing. Will definitely be going back in the near future as there was so much to choose from. Thank you for restoring my faith in trying new restaurants.

warm greeting @ bar and taken to table - left!! really wanted a drink while waiting for other guest - managed to catch eye of wait person & this rectified quickly. meals were fantastic - thai prawns & noodles for me the other chicken burger - both outstanding with excellent tastes. No upselling but honestly the meals are excellent sizings so hard to add a dessert - venue cold - had to add coat while seated in restaurant - wait staff need to remember they are moving to keep warm but the guest is seated and chills quicker - would definitely return for great food

Great service by Tanya. Although the menu doesn't state gluten-free options, they are able to do quite a lot gluten-free which is great for us coeliacs. The meals are beautifully cooked and presented. I had the salmon which had lovely crispy skin and was perfectly cooked. Hubby had the pork belly which he enjoyed. Ice cream sundae with berry compote was just the right level of sweetness and really lovely. We would highly recommend.
