Great Club, super friendly, helpful staff at Reception, in the restaurant, at the bar, the coffee shop! It's just a lovely place to go. Warm in winter, too!
I had the seafood basket - all battered: 2 scallops, 2 prawns, 2-3 salt & pepper calamari rings, some things in a cone (?), 2 flathead fillets, chips, Aoli Sauce, salad.
I have to say I was very disappointed in this meal even though they did it at the last minute because the griller wasn't working. I really appreciate the help I had in getting a meal at nearly closing time, but the batter was just too thick. I had to peel most of it off, the quality of the seafood was not real good and I should have chosen the rest of the day instead because I would have felt a lot better & healthier!!
I've learned my lesson And will eat earlier next time!!

The hot chips from Blueys was a hit n crispy.
The barramundi from Essence presented differently has been delightful.
We had a break from dining here for a few months after some disappointing meals previously and are pleased with, we hope, a welcome comeback.
Here's hoping the food menu n presentation will continue to impress.

Pokie heaven, no pool or snooker tables anymore....but you can play a lot of pokies if you want!!! No thanks?

The schnitzels in the bistro however are very good, and if you're with a member at lunch, quite good value in these times??'?

Tradies was a great spot for dinner. We accidentally went through the hotel entrance but the staff were extremely helpful in signing us and directing us to the restaurant.
We had the chicken parma and the rib fillet with garlic butter. Both were cooked to perfection and were very healthy portions.

I am a long time member of The Tradies; albeit that I rarely actually go there, due to other committments. It's a super place filled with a cross section of people mostly people who have put their shoulder to the Wheel.

Service is great, everyone is smiling and courteous. Large size portions, great value for money! Really enjoyed our meals. Hubby's only remark too much sauce on the pasta - but more of a personal preference. Thankyou ?

The Essence restaurant has amazing food that doesn't break the bank. The lounge area has several TVs playing a game often. There is a cafe and the bar also serves food.

Had a legend schnitzel with a surf and turf topper. My wife had fish of the day. Both meals were amazing. Great value for money. Staff couldn't be nicer. Highly recommend.

$36 for a very ordinary chicken schnitzel. Shame because they were so very good a few years ago. Staff were nice.

Restaurant was amazing. Great feeds at a good price. Twinkle from the restaurant team was fantastic at looking after us and ensuring the food was allergy safe.

Would highly recommend Twinkle and her team at the restaurant.

Delicious roast and vegan schnitzel.

Arrived on a quiet Sunday for dinner and a few beers. Decent beer selection and the steak I ordered was cooked well. This place has the biggest gaming room I have seen in Canberra. I'm not a member, but I would come back.

Good place if you're into schnitzel. Members get excellent discounts for meals which can save a decent amount.

Just had a seafood basket at Essence Restaurant. The worst meal I've ever eaten.
Prawn cutlet couldn't chew through, calamari ring was pasty, salt and pepper squid was over cooked and dry, fish was over cooked and chewy, chips over cooked and tasteless.
All in all, a TOTAL disaster
First meal I've returned from any restaurant in about 8 years

$30 for a sad parmy
The pub staff were awesome but the food was overpriced for what it was
Overall had a good atmosphere!

Waited 5 mins to be seated because the staff ignored - didn't notice someone standing by the sign while the cashier was serving other people. Then waited 5 mins to order a drink because there was only one guy serving on bar on the restaurant side.
Finally sat down and waited half an hour for my medium rare steak. It arrived cold and rare.
Why the eff do restaurants in Australia hire people that can not cook a basic steak??!! Like if you are going to serve rubbish cuts and incorrectly cooked steak then don't charge people $42! I have no issue paying good money for a good steak but it appears the art of cooking one of the most popular menu items is completely lost with most grill staff.
I handed the steak back to the kitchen and got a refund. One star for the cashier that at least had the common sense to be humble and apologise.

We ordered 2 weeks in advanced at essence, sat down at 6.30 proceeded to order at 7.15. The chef closed the kitchen whilst we went to order. Was told not taking any more orders and we need to order in half an hour hopefully when the chef cools down, dinner would of been 8.30-9. Unfortunately with kids waiting that long, we had to eat out in the cafe. As we were the restaurant entry sign was closed for a period of time. Never been to a restaurant where the chef closes the kitchen with people sitting down to eat. The duty officer was very apologetic and a great guy.

The staff are so lovely. Also I am so impressed with the Chef selection. Filipino cuisine represent! Im bummed I didn't check it out before deciding on the roast.

Met up with some interstate relations for dinner and a catch-up. It had been years since I'd been and while the scenery has changed it's still just as good. Great club food at good prices, served promptly with no fuss.

The only problem was finding a park. It's not impossible but time need to be set aside. People do come and go but you need to be patient.

I haven't bought a pie at a club before but i was definitely disappointed and won't do so ever again. $21 for mince meat and mashed potato.

Other than that, the place is nice and an acceptable range of beer on tap. The schnitzel is also pretty big and juicy.

Would go again, would not get "pie".

Nice and clean, lovely staff, reasonable food and drink prices. The young man with a disability who worked there was very helpful and it was great to see a business willing to support those with special needs.
