Service was great! Young waitress made us feel right at home & really sold the food! She went over specials and recommended an entree (which was delicious) and then promptly came back with our drinks and to take orders. She checked on our table a couple of times ensuring our meals were up to stretch and to offer us more drinks! She was fantastic! The food was really nice and myself and my partner both chose something we wouldn’t normally choose- we were very pleasantly surprised! Would totally dine at the loading ramp again!

Four of us dined on a Sat evening. Great accommodating service, gave a sample of tap beer to try before ordering, opened doors and windows at our request when it got to hot. The food was yummy, flavorsome and great portion sizes. We all ordered different dishes and a garlic flat bread to start, everyone very satisfied !

We had a fantastic experience at the Loading Ramp. They fussed over us as though we were their most important customers even though they were very busy. We have already recommended them and First Table to many people. We look forward to dining there again. 5 star+

Girls night out dinner and honestly I didn't have high expectations since I have been to the loading ramp quite a few times, but only to drink.

I was however super impressed with the menu, food and service. Our server was attentive and patient, and the food came out quickly, which was all delicious. The feijoa dessert was amazing! Thank you for a great night. Will definitely be back to eat again.

What incredible food!!! Hubby and I ordered the steak and the gnocchi and we each loved our meals. Food came in a timely manner and service was polite and friendly. Also recommend the beer battered fries - yum! Would definitely come back again.

Everything was fabulous , from start to finish. The staff were great and food portion sizes exceeded expectations. The fish and chips were excellent - crunchy well-cooked batter and beautiful chips. The chicken/bacon pizza was excellent, with lots of toppings and really cheesy. Staff had no problem with me taking the balance of pizza home. Unfortunately we were pushed for time, so couldn't stay for dessert, but we will definitely go back another time.
The menu was diverse and very accommodating for both hungry teenagers and more refined diners. Thanks!

Staff were great and waitress was super lovely. The food was nice but the menu choice was limited and I found myself struggling to choose something I wanted. It was a very hot evening at no AC in the restaurant part made it a bit too hot for comfort. Waitress did offer to move us outside but it was just as hot so no point. I would recommend a fan or something in the dining area on hot nights.

Great service, the food was good we compared it to a home cooked meal especially the chicken breast, very much like a roast chicken dinner, pork belly was nice and tender, for the price we paid we were happy if we had paid full price we would feel abit differently.

Our family of five dined in at th Loading Ramp on a Tuesday. I couldn't find any info about th Loading Ramp being Child friendly so called up and checked. Yes child-friendly and they also hav a child's menu. My husband and I had th Scotch Fillet meal each and all i can say was it was perfect. Th steak was cooked medium rare and beautifully. I also ordered a side dish of mushrooms. I was very happy with th quantity of mushrooms, large bowl full. Hubby and i shared a sticky date pudding, it was another large serving and delicious, enough for two to share. Our children enjoyed their meal and dessert also. Service was spot on, they were attentive and very satisfactory. Five stars from us and we'll definitely be back.

Great night out. Our party of 3 had a delicious meal: crazy fries to start, then shared the Thai Beef Salad and Grilled Chicken main. Big venue, but quiet in the dining room. We’ll be back for another meal or even just a drink.

The Loading Ramp was a fab experience with a buzzing atmosphere. Our waitress was lovely and very helpful. Perfect juicy steak and succulent lamb, scrumptious beer battered chips and garlic pizza bread went down a treat! First Table meant we were able to go through the menu and take family with us when we would ordinarily only go for a special occasion.
I can't get enough of First Table since being introduced to it a week ago. It makes dining affordable and more frequent for us. Everyone I tell is signing up!

Our first time there, and loved the feel of the place. The staff were great, especially our lovely waitress.
We shared a plate of lamb shank and mushroom spring rolls, which were 4 huge ones, and really tasty, then both had scotch fillet, with duck fat potatoes, and really flavoursome courgette and spinach. Super yummy, and cooked to perfection.
Wish I had taken a photo!
Couldn't eat it all, so came home with a doggy bag to enjoy the next day.
Will definitely be back.
