The last time we went here was a year and a half ago and I was disappointed with the menu and the meals we got, this time, it was fantastic. It was a busy Friday night and noisy with many groups but our service was absolutely excellent and most importantly the food itself was tasty, attractive and well proportioned. We had a young child with us and they gave colouring in supplies and games which made our guests evening enjoyable. I can recommend the large juicy burgers, the mussells and definitely a highlight was the Snickers icecream dessert. We all noticed the singer they had in for the evening who we initially thought was the sound system, then we realised she was around the corner and live - great voice.

We took our 3 kids ( including our 2yr old son) were all seated & served by friendly staff. My order of ribs was amazing fell off the bone, melted in my mouth with every bite.... delicious, my teen girls devoured the chicken burger & fish n chips plus snickers sundaes reporting yum, while my partner happily shared prawns & chips with our son. Apart from the excellent food, good staff & obviously the heavy discount available I must thank the couple dining next to us who left after paying for our entire meal!!! When the staff told us this both my girls jumped up to find & thank the lovely couple whom we did not know but couldn't find them so WOW thank you so much & sincerely hope something great happens for you both, too.

Nice and warm inside for lunch on a cold winters day. Friendly attentive staff. Wide ranging menu and choice of drinks.
Excellent Seafood Chowder which was served piping hot (5*****) and Phili Steak Roll very tasty gravy and cheese with tender steak served in a very fresh roll.

We came for lunch on Saturday and were pleasantly surprised. We shared the potato skins with truffle oil, Parmesan and gravy and then had individual mains of the baby back ribs, glazed salmon, and scotch fillet steak. Everything was delicious, the ribs were very tender but a bit more bbq sauce would be good. The highlight was the potato skins - I would go back just for those, they were so good! The service was great and you could tell they were really trying to provide a good local dining destination. I’d definitely go back and would recommend Northern Union for high quality pub food, good service and a relaxed atmosphere. Great to have such a good local pub and restaurant in the area.

Great experience, food was fantastic, kids loved every bite and so did we. Helpful courteous staff, who went out of their way to help us decide what to eat and drink. Had pizzas, chicken schnitzel burger and philly steak roll, we will definitely be back. Hats off to all the team

We enjoyed an excellent meal of mains lamb shank which was well cooked and accompanying fresh vegetables.
The chicken mains was well presented with plenty of vegetable greens.
We ordered sticky date pudding which came with cream and ice cream delicious. The other dessert creme brulee was excellent with a caramelised topping.
We had two waiters looking after us I was given a small wine tasting before ordering nothing was too much trouble our water glasses were never empty. Waiters came back to make sure we were happy with our meals very attentive staff with smiles to go with it.
We will definitely be returning to Northern Union Gastro Pub we highly recommend.

The food was great, which was really good, as had not been here in the past 2 years after a bad experience. It was really busy, but all food was out within 20 minutes of ordering and was nicely cooked.
Only complaint would be that our table was near the back entry, and as people were coming in and out to the courtyard for food/drinks or arriving and leaving, the door was opened many times creating a cold draft over our table. Otherwise it was a good evening.

We had a lovely time at the Northern Union Gastro Pub. Lovely atmosphere, great for families and lovely experience. Hubby and I had a lovely night we enjoyed our meals although we both had the pork belly for the mains and it was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Great prices for the meals.

The vibe at Northern Union is always lively, even as early as 5:30pm. Stopped for a quick dinner before a show and just picked a pizza to share and some chicken wings, but at NU you get more than you bargained for. The portions are massive and the food tastes great, it's pretty hard to be have self-control when your taste buds are tickled pink! This place is so well priced, you'll never feel ripped off.

We had a shared plate which was very nice and great service from the staff. The only issue was unattended children running around outside which was no fault of Northern Union.
Overall, it was a fabulous date night - Loving First Table.

Location: Google maps lead me directly to it.
Parking: Off street parking behind the building. Limited spots but plenty across the road.
Decor: Bar tables as you enter and restaurant tables at the rear. Plenty of seating on a Wednesday but I think you would need to book on busy nights. Overhead TV's playing sport with the sound turned down. Bit of an American feeling about this bar which I actually quite like.
Service: Excellent. When we arrived the head waitress told us she had received an email earlier in the day from First Table so was expecting us. Made us feel very welcome and seemed genuine in that we were trying this out for the first time. Drinks arrived within 3 to 4 minutes, entrees arrived about 15 minutes after placing the order and mains about 5 minutes after the entrees had been cleared away. Perfect for us.
Food: Couldn't fault the food. We had three entrees and three main. The lamb croquettes were perfectly cooked, the dumplings were very tasty and well spiced (without too much spice) and the nachos were great. They arrived with gravy over them (unusual) but this only added to the flavor.
We had three mains....salmon which was perfectly cooked and very fresh, pork belly which came on a bed of carrot puree and pickled vegetables. The pork belly crackling could have been a bit more cruchy, but overall very tasty. The tacos my daughter had were small (she was warned) but very good. We didn't have desserts as we were quite full. That's a good thing, right.
Check out: Had a look over the waitress's should when she was getting the bill ready. She sub-totalled the food bill, deducted the 50% discount, and added the drinks. Very simple process and easy to follow.
Value for money: Very good
Overall rating: 93/100. (That's good for me so recommend this place to everyone). I'll be back.
