Great service & friendly staff, the menu has a good selection of reasonably priced meals ideal for a family night out. The portions are a good size and very nicely presented.
I had a nice night out with my three sons, they said they were stuffed so that's always good.

I really enjoyed my meal of an open steak sandwich with blue cheese and fries. I finished off the meal with the ginger pudding accompanied with a Baileys. A great way to end a busy work week.

My husband and I enjoy going to Focal Point as the food is great as is the service. We ate our meal and then ordered coffee and a sweet treat from the cabinet to take into the movie. It is very convenient right there at the cinema so only one car park needed.

We had a fantastic girlie catch up at Focal Point last night! We really enjoyed the food and the service was fantastic. My personal favourite was the chocolate fondue which was plenty big for four of us to share. Thanks for such a great night out!!!

The food was actually amazing! Service was actually exceptional except that our food was priced wrong at the end with no first table discount. Luckily, one of our friends picked it up and we were reimbursed. Troy the manager is a very hard worker and very respectful to his staff and customers! Poor waitress that got stuck with us had to redo our paymemts etc. Sorry about that but her service and manner was very professional.
Thank you. Will definitely be back.

Food was tasty although someone in our group had lamb cutlets and said they were a little tough. The table we were sitting at was a little small for 4 people, possibly a bigger table would be more relaxing. Apart from that, it was great.

This has been the best experience I have had at an eatery using First Table!
The young lady who served my friend and myself was absolutely lovely and checked in on us just the right amount of times.
We ordered the garlic bread to start and it was divine! Crispy on the outside and perfectly moist on the inside.
When our mains came (and they came out in good time!) we are both amazed when we took our first bite. Absolutely brilliant! Massive compliments to the chef and the team for providing an excellent experience for us.
We will definitely be back, as we didn’t get a chance to have dessert!
