What happened? Used to see so many locals having a great time dancing and sharing a great time after 10.30pm, bistro didn't open just the bar with pool tables and djs that appear to be just be out of touch, absolutely 100% supporting to new djs but surely there has to be some sort of acknowledgement to a crowd evacuating a dance floor within 5 minutes of your choice in music. Live music had the same loop playing over 45 minutes, great voices but very depressing songs.
I was so disappointed tonight to see so many patrons in the venue and the dj absolutely oblivious to reading the crowd, no one dancing and playing music that would better suited to trance dance parties. Tried to provide feedback and asked for some requests, absolutely nothing of it! Come on guys you used to be a full venue with a line outside the door on a Friday night , it would be such a shame for this place to close due to this type of business model. If I can give any advice to the DJ's please start reading your crowds better by just looking up, engage in your crowd and adjust the music to your demographic. Success will prevail, seen this many times in my career in pubs and clubs spanning from a very young age.
I won't give up on this place and I will try again, but honestly disappointed tonight. We have always had such a great time here but not tonight, its local and used to have such a variety of fantastic music both live and the dj, not sure where all the locals are going now.
Massive shout out to the security guard of 8 years of service who shared my feelings and allowed me the opportunity to provide feedback and also a big thank you the bar tenders that provided plenty of customer service and put the heaters on when cold. Espresso martini was the highlight of my night.
I do hope that management and the owners take this review as a positive and constructive response to the time we attended tonight and I look forward to better experience next time. Surely there would a great drop in revenue with sort of business model if this continues. Hopefully better experience next time

I think it is a blokes pub. Which is fine. We are probably not the targeted demo graphic. However, whilst the food was good and lovely staff I would not take my family there. A couple of young blokes in the lounge area were swearing their heads off. Nothing against swearing but prefer not to eat in that environment. Just my personal opinion.

First time having dinner here, and was very disappointed in the parma and chips. The parma was burnt underneath and the chips were overdone. When I told the server, she even looked at the chips and said "oh yes, they are overdone". So why serve them if you know they are substandard. The meal took over 25mins to come out, when the pub was empty, so I ate the parma and left the chips, as I was starving. And at a cost of $34, its one of the most expensive parma's I've ever had.

Walked in on a Friday night got a table straight away. Jordan was great, friendly and happy to help. Meals came our super fast and were awesome. Fish and chips perfectly cooked, and the Sneaky Cheese Burger was amazing.
Great job guys, we will definitely be back.

Came here to the bottle o drive through. I waited for 10 minutes for someone to stop gas bagging and come and serve me. I was the only one at the drive through and at the whole bottle o. When I asked for my drink he didn't even know what I was talking about, let alone the price.
Tad disappointed to be honest..

BEST chips and garlic bread IN THE WORLD ?

Even if you only come here for those, you won't be disappointed!

But wait, there's MORE!

*Super friendly waitresses and chef.
*Super quick service.
*Quaint country pub vibe.
*Big servings (and they'll give you containers to take home what you can't shove in ya gob).
*Easy parking and disabled access
* Awesome outdoor/venue area
*I do believe they have live music and support local artists, but I haven't yet had the pleasure (I will, though!)

I've found my new favourite eatery.

Make it yours today!!

Dinner on a very quiet Sunday night, only a few others in the bistro. Parma was a bit on the small side for a pub but plenty of chips made the dish size decent enough.
Parma was well what you'd expect from a pub, and not dry or burnt at all.
Small salad which is fine, gravy went great with the chips.
Will be back for sure .

What an absolute winner this place is. An old school pub with the best Parma's we've had in a long time. Friendly and brilliant service. What a find ?

My son and I came here tonight for a parma. Ours was the 2nd order taken as soon as it opened. I would say its up there with one of the worst parma's I've ever had. We couldn't eat it. The chips were so over salted I gagged, went for some of the salad to wash it down but was drenched in dressing and the parma far out. It doesnt get more over cooked. There is NO way the "chef" is qualified.

Thanks again,

Fantastic venue, if you discount the horrible entry woman at the door. On numerous occasions, our slightly awkward friend has been refused entry to the Centch despite hardly drinking or even being sober!

Last time this happened on Friday night, I immediately asked our friends to come back from already going in, and said we'll just go elsewhere. This was met by the Centch employee remarking "well that was easy", indicating she knows she is in the wrong and was expecting an argument. We then stuck around while we waited for an Uber to 81 in Berwick (much nicer security staff there), and watched their large bouncer assault two young girls and the entry woman refuse multiple males (exclusively).

Not too sure if I see the point ostracising the male population of the south east as a business model, but hey, you do you!

Food quite reasonable. They got Balter xpa on tap which is a plus, so I sank 10 pints and staggered to the pizza joint. Happy days.

I've been coming here most weekends, it's a great place if you don't want a full on club vibe but still want to dance, play pool and socialise.
Plenty of security and all are friendly.
Anyone you meet there is nice and inclusive, unlike some nightclubs.
Prices are fair.
There's also a warm up before 9 of live music if you into that.
Great place to go ??'??
