Oh my goodness, what an absolute treat Searle Lane was! Our group of four selected a bit of everything from the menu and we thoroughly enjoyed every morsel. The fabulous food was topped off by great service from Mel.

Another awesome offering from First Table. We LOVED Searle Bar and Rotisserie. We had the mixed plate and the serve was HUGE! IN fact, all the serves were really, really generous. My 14 year old son had the pizza, it could easily have fed 3 people, easily. Our waiter was an English lad, and what a great host. This is a find of a restaurant, and you must give it a go.

Walking in to the smell of an open wood fire and the friendly smiles of the staff. Can't get a better welcome! Friendly and very good service. All the food was amazing. The ribs especially were AMAZING! THE MOST TENDER, FALL OFF THE BONE AND MELT IN YOUR MOUTH KIND. Lovely big portions . We were all stuffed when we left. Highly recommend to all.

I have to be honest after reading a few mixed reviews I was a little worried, but I shouldn’t have. We had the mixed grill, there was alot of food, we honestly could have shared it with the kids and it would have been enough. We really enjoyed the buttermilk chicken and the steak was cooked to our liking. The server was really friendly and the kids were stoked with their complimentary shared sundae. Thanks!

The meal was tasty and the service was excellent! the staff and chef really went above and beyond to help with my food allergy to adjust my meal so that it fit my needs.

The food and service of this visit were awesome. Can recommend the mixed grill and liked the way our waitress told us the names of the other staff so if we needed anything we knew who to call on. Very enjoyable!

We ordered mix beef, pork, chicken with chips and salad and it was really really big! For two people was more than enough. Was so delicious but just control the spicy flavour on chicken. The waiter was so kind and the service was really fast. We recommend to go for dinner! Thanks

Our waitress was very friendly and we were given a nice booth with plenty of space. The food was good value and very tasty, with very generous portions. Their daily deals were awesome and great value, e.g. 50c chicken wings on Monday. The service was quick and friendly - we couldn't fault them. Definitely would return.

Was exactly what we needed being top quality food with an ability for our one year old girl to roam around and not cause anyone any fuss.
Special mention to the service though, very friendly and attentive.

Really hungry after a day skiing so hearty steak and ribs fitted the bill nicely. Steak cooked to perfection and melt in your mouth pork ribs.
No room for dessert after our calamari entre.

Food serving was bang on and how it’s cooked and served was absolutely better than photos online. The staff who served us doesn’t sound like a local but very hospitable and friendly. Would definitely recommend to friends and family

Really great food, portions and service! The only critique is that the dessert size wouldn’t be worth the full price of $14.

Quirky, rustic and fun place to enjoy lunch with a great variety of food. We chose the tasty rib dish and licked the plates after.
Super friendly staff and good ambience in the middle of town.
Great entertainment for kids while playing with the huge Yenka blocks.
