Really great venue. Ambience, lighting and spaciousness is better than most. Good variety and quality food with healthy options. Outdoor eating options were great especially welcoming dogs.

Overall not a bad experience. If it wasn't for miss high horse at the front desk this would have been a 5 star for sure. Everyone else were an absolute pleasure. It actually felt like the other staff were being even nicer to make up for her bad attitude!

Great first visit to the Taphouse. All of the staff were friendly and were happy to chat. Even got to chat with Dan Dainton himself! The limited release beers on tap at the moment are absolutely worth the trip - Bloodzilla, Choc Berry Bomb and Red Dragon especially. Grabbed a few other beers to try on the way out too. Won't be long 'til I'm back!

That was delicious. A big table full of different food and the chefs did an incredible job. I had the Cobb salad and would highly recommend. Very fresh and best salad I've had in ages.

When we arrived, we waited next to the "wait to be seated sign" for a long time until we were attended to.

Once we were seated, we ordered from the table QR code. Food came out 20 to 30 minutes later but no cutlery. I asked about that, and they said they would get it. So we waited. After waiting long enough, I got up to look for cutlery. At the same time, someone came to bring out the cutlery. I told them that we hadn't received our drink orders yet. He advised that he'd check on it.

Halfway through our food, we still didn't have any drinks. A person at my table went to the bar to ask. They returned to say that one person was serving, and that they were serving customers as they walked in, as well as people seated at tables (who probably knew something we didn't and were not using the table ordering process).

We finished our meals and we still hadn't received any drinks. It was a warm day, and we were seated outside, and we were thirsty. There were no inside tables available. When I noticed 3 young guys had arrived and received their drink orders straight away, I approached the bar. The drinks were on the side, awaiting collection from a staff member to bring to our table. After confirming that they were mine, I took them. If it took 30 minutes for the drinks to be poured, I wasn't waiting any longer for someone free to bring them to my table. I was extremely disappointed with everything. How do you prioritise your customer orders? People off the street receive drinks, yet customers dining have to wait more than 30 minutes. It makes no sense! Our order was easy and it could have preceded our meal. It is a brewery, yet you can't get a beer!

If that experience was not bad enough, the food was horrible. I had a Caesar salad and I paid extra for chicken, costing $27. Half the salad was made up of big chunky croutons. There was a bit of chicken, a tiny amount of egg and dressing that lacked the Caesar zing. It was a bad-tasting salad. I left half behind, which seemed to excite the swarms of wasps, enjoying their time on and around the tables.

The cheese pizza was horrible, and the kids' chicken nuggets were almost inedible. Even a child knows when something is bad as they didn't touch the burnt nuggets, so I paid $12 for a handful of fries.

I can understand that there are labour shortages everywhere, and people need to be patient. I really dislike it when I wait my turn, yet there is no system in place to make the process fair. I have no desire to return to this place, I'd rather go anywhere else!

Incredible beer and an asset for the area. Great vibe and really hard working staff who do everything they can to make sure you have a great experience. Love dropping in to try their new beer on tap and to enjoy the sunshine in there courtyard or out the front. Also enjoy grabbing a few takeaways
Great venue! Great beer. Great people will continue to come back again and again ?

Lovely service and really good food. I love their stouts for the limited releases otherwise some are hit and miss. But the core range is always solid 🍻

Visited on two separate occasions so far.

Date/time of visit: 10 December 2022 at 6:30pm (approx.)
Date/time of visit: 25 November at 8:00pm (approx.)

Both visits were enjoyable, the food great, and there's an excellent atmosphere. The first visit, a Friday, there was a large patronage - it was very busy and no tables remaining. We were offered seating at the wine barrel and we were happy to accept. We ordered two pizzas, both with amazing flavours. Our second visit, the crowd was less and we managed to get a table easily. This second time we had cheeseburgers, which were also great. The accompanying fries weren't consistantly cooked - sone nice and crisp, some a little solid but still edible.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
Ordering food can be via QR code or in person at the bar. We ordered at the bar and that can take time with the number of people waiting to order.
We would definitely go back. The venue, food and atmosphere were all enjoyable. Price point was good.

Really friendly staff and nice food. Great having gluten free! Not a fan of main food area inside as felt a bit noisy and cluttered. The bar tables against the walls were better. We started outside until it got a bit too cold. Outside area needs a bit of pizazz too but all-in-all the atmosphere was good.

Best thing to happen to the public brewery. I loved the old place RIP. Now new and improved. A must visit for any beer lover ?

Great open space with industrial vibes. Staff were friendly and doing their best on a busy Saturday night, dealing with lots of families and a Hen's night. Service could be improved by QR codes for menus with more information available on the wide range of beers (beyond just the name and alcohol content). Menus placed on the tables were inconsistent, which lead to disappointment after lining up at the bar for 10 minutes to find out the item hadn't been available for
months. Some acoustic panels would help reduce the echoes and make the space more conversation friendly.

Friendly and helpful staff, good selection of craft beer and reasonably priced. Great atmosphere despite wanting a quiet drink on trivia night. I imagine I'll make this one a regular spot for tasty treats.

First and foremost, the Beer is excellent and the staff are lovely.
Food is severely disappointing. The $28 Parma is basically a big chicken nugget with a smear of sauce and some cheese. The chorizo pizza was okay but pretty bland.

Had a great dinner tonight. Really great gluten free food range. The manager decided that he wasn't happy with how long we waited for our drinks (it wasn't that long, but probably longer than what they aim for) and gave us free dessert. The hospitality and service was excellent. Highly recommend. Trivia night is also a bit of fun!

Great afternoon by the fire, delicious food and a good selection of wines for us to choose from. Special thanks to Tim....we were well looked after by him today and he arranged a taxi for us (as ours didn't show). Great personality and a nice bloke!

Everything was delicious, Tim was super professional and a pleasure to deal with. Grabbed a nice bourbon from the bottle shop on the way out. Highly recommend. Thanks.

Excellent spot for a quick drink after work, or going with friends or family, and they often have live music on the weekends.

This place is just like anything in the CBD. Seems that's what people like these days. Not their fault for going with the status quo. I just want an old school Aussie doen to earth pub but they're getting further and fewer between. Reckon I'll try Dorset Garden Hotel next.

Had a wonderful experience at this place. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. The food was well portioned, reasonably priced, and delicious. The atmosphere was great as well. I will definitely be recommending this place and planning on visiting again.
