We had a great time at the hop garden, food was yum and we were well looked after throughout the night. Portions are generous! We probably could have ordered less but we certainly didn’t leave feeling hungry.

This was our very first First Table experience and we were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. We got our drinks,quickly, then chose entrees. The arancini and pate were both delicious. But the best part was to come.... the Angus steak was perfectly cooked and the accompanying potato gratin was quite possibly the best i have tasted. Recommended!

Food was excellent pub grub, what we were lookin' for, staff were chillin' and very active clearing plates and keeping the place served.

Guy in the dreads created a humorous atmosphere. If only my girlfriend didn't get p***ed off at me in the end because of too many drams of the Old Fashioned.

I rate it a 8/10.

Cory.

Dining out is usually very costly which is why we hardly ever do it - this was the first time we used 'First table'.
Booking was easy-as and we were greeted by very friendly staff who looked after us perfectly. The food was great - the meat was definitely much better standard than the usual pub quality, and the kids loved their fish n chips. Desserts were also good.I can highly recommend the Hop Garden for a relaxed dining experience with children - all of us really enjoyed it.
Apart from the food, one other thing I was impressed with, as I had never come across it before: In the ladies bathroom there is a notice stating that staff will discretely help you if you are stuck in a bad date or feel unsafe in any way...great idea! We will definitely be back for the next family occasion.

Really enjoyed our meal as the food was excellent and the service too. It is a pub. It looks are deceiving. We had steak which was cooked perfectly and the vegetarian meal again great very flavoursome. We were early so only diners but the pub was busy so good atmosphere. Would go back and recommend highly

We went with our overtired toddler who wouldn't sit still and while I had to eat very fast the food was absolutely delicious!! The staff were patient with her as well. I recommend the squid and the chicken thigh with risotto. So good!

We had a lovely time at Hop Garden! I would highly recommend the cheeseburger off the bar menu - sounds simple, but was so well executed! Will definitely be back

The food was very good. The steak and pork belly were both delicious. The apple pies for dessert were very good but the beignets were average. Overall the service was great, our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Had a bit of a mix up at the till however as the guy didn’t realise that all the food was 50% off but it was sorted for us. Also liked the good selection of craft beer.

Really amazing food. We had the steak and the lamb, both cooked to a perfect medium rare, the arancini we had as a starter was the perfect size to keep us going for our mains which didn’t take too long at all! Great beer selection, we were going to get dessert but were too full from the meals! The only thing I have to say is that it’s hard to know where to go when you walk in as there is no Maître Ds area just a bar. Other than that staff were lovely and attentive without being overbearing!

Been to the Hop Garden many times. Always a good experience. Service was excellent. Menu has changed a little and the goat's cheese and jalapeno arancini were amazing. The lamb rump was ok but the pork belly my friend had was pretty up there. As usual, be choice is great and I find it hard to fault.

Great little place. I had the steak and my partner had the lamb and the meat was amazing! Cooked to perfection! The arancini was so tasty as was the pate, the only thing I didn't like was the white bread served with the pate seemed a bit cheap. Would go again!

We had an awesome evening! We ordered entree, main and desserts. All came out very presentable, nice and tasty. Especially the fish of the day, and shellfish came with it, they’re all very fresh. Love the broth!! Not a single drop left on my bowl at the end!! I cleaned them up. The beef was tender and juicy! Cooked just right for medium rare. Potato gratin was layered beautifully , full of flavour, and cooked perfectly. Each melt in the mouth and explode with flavour. Finished off with sweets!! I especially like the special dessert. Deep fried bread like bite size doughnuts, with fillings. Still warm when served. You should go and try it!! Highly recommended!!

Friendly, prompt service and a warm, inviting atmosphere. The pork belly bites were tasty, but not soft, hard work to chew. Lamb and chicken for our mains were beautifully cooked and flavorful. Chips at a nearby table looked great!

My best friend and her partner were in town so we decided to check out the Hop Garden as it is super close to my house. We were greeted by our friendly waitress, who was always available if we needed anything, the service we had all night was top notch! I ordered the steak, which was perfectly medium-rare and paired with lovely crunchy beans and tasty potato gratin. Unfortunately my steak had a small amount of gristle which was surprising. My partner was feeling ambitious and ordered the almond stuffed olives with feta (really tasty), the salt and pepper squid (perfectly done) and the 1kg of chicken wings with hot sauce (not too hot, and very tasty). Safe to say he didn't finish it all, but the staff were very obliging in wrapping it all up for him to take home. My bff devoured her chicken breast and risotto, and her partner has the steak also, which was perfectly medium-rare. Three of us had dessert, two chocolate mousses, which was delectibly dark, I really enjoyed it. My bff had the deep fried cheesecake with ice cream, salted caramel popcorn, and passion fruit sauce which she thought was good but could probably have been better without the popcorn. Overall we had a lovely night- the atmosphere at the Hop Garden is great and we left very full! Will definitely be recommending to friends and family.

We ordered four entrees instead of mains. The beef tartare was the winner. Not so keen on the tofu. Really nice beers.

The food was amazing!!! I especially loved the hot fresh bread straight out of the oven. Mouth watering.

The cheese cake dessert was really good, I would use caramel popcorn instead as the white popcorn tasted stale along side the ice cream.

Was really quiet so atmosphere was a little lack lustre, but the waiter was polite and friendly as was the man at the counter when we paid for the meal.
Food lacked any real flavour or seasoning, was bland but nice enough - protein well cooked. I had the mousse for dessert and it was far too dense, a bit like a batter as opposed to being whipped and fluffy. Very rich as well so some more orange segments to freshen it up would have been nice.

We were hoping to enjoy the delicious Tapas again at The Hop Garden, but unfortunately were not able to choose this. However, I chose the lamb for my main and was not disappointed. Beautifully cooked and so flavoursome. My only criticism (and this is a small one), there wasn't enough vegetables for me. So it might pay to order extra if you have this, it'll be worth it. I had the Cheesecake 3-ways for dessert and this was just sublime...absolutely gorgeous!

Great service as always from the team at The Hop Garden. I would definitely recommend a visit.
