Seated in a nice booth. Accommodated slash tolerated the groups lack of speed in making menu choices, without any signs of annoyance. Food was standard pub grub done at a satisfactory quality. Wait for food was acceptable.

From the moment we arrived we were very comfortable in the surroundings. The staff gave excellent service and made you feel very welcome. The food was at a high level, with the steak being cooked to perfection. We had two younger children with us, they found the gravey and the sauce to be a little to flavoursome, ideal for adults, but a little too strong for a child.

Having previously visited and enjoyed Rockpool, this time was a huge disappointment. As soon as we entered the establishment our group felt largely ignored and sidelined. The service pre-ordering was minimal, and when asking about the evening specials the waitress was uninterested, gesturing to a specials board as she walked away, the specials board pointed away from us and couldn't be read from where we were sitting.

The food itself was okay, the Chicken Parmigiana was soggy and lukewarm, however, the flatbread starter was amazing.

We were seated at a table with views into the kitchen. While waiting for our food to be served we witness a waitress eating a chip off of another customer's plate while bringing it out.

While that may be excusable what was not, was a staff member placing her pouch of tobacco on the kitchen bench close to where food was being prepared and rolling a cigarette in the kitchen. It was very offputting and none of the three people at the table would go back.

We attended on a Sunday evening when the BIG FIGHT was on screen!!! The place was jam packed with heaps of people but the waitress was attentive and whizzed us to a reserved table ;super efficient in taking our orders. Out family of 4 had lamb shank, fish burger and pizzas (Hawaiian and Smoke salmon). Portions were big and yummy!
Cant fault the place for anything. Our only grouse is having to walk with the kids through smokers who were hanging around the entrance of the restaurant when we arrived. Other than that, place is good for a evening meal.

Sinead was our funny Irish waitress who handled our table with ease. We were greeted immediately on arrival and seated at the window. The menu was quality, simple food - exactly what we were looking for. Steaks were cooked to perfection, the chicken parmigiana delicious - as was the calamari starter. Excellent ice cream sundaes to follow for some. Very well priced food - even when not on First Table! We will definitely return next time in the city.
