I have forgotten why my wife and i did not support the wade anymore prior to Covid-19 but came to realisation today again they should change their name to “Wade sorry we don’t have it” i ordered 3 different items and every time got the...same sort of response. Sorry we don’t have it today or sorry just sold out of that. What do they think as a customer i am a idiot. I have just decided i will never support them again. Sorry Buck as a legent you name is connected to thisMore

It is a lovely outside setting on such a beautiful day. This was quite an impromptu lunch so just had a shared platter fir two of cold meats and cheese. There was plenty to share and it was reasonably priced. It never seems to be...very busy not sure why but also you can park outside the doorMore

Thank you for your positive comments; regrettably, we suffer from many not knowing we exist, we have returning customers that have found us and enjoyed the offer we have; unfortunately, we miss out from being away from the main through route

Staying near. We were recommended this restaurant so decided to try it. Very quite but nice staff and very good food. Not disappointed at all.

Went with a group for a birthday dinner. Had checked it out a week before when the staff were awesome so looked forward to a great night. The Friday night we went there were different staff on who didn't appear to want to be there....It was not a busy night but we had to keep asking for service. The food was average, definitely won't be rushing back. Owever great location and a beautiful old building.More

Met here on a Sunday lunchtime for a couple of drinks BUT time was lost so we decided to have a couple of assorted platters to fill a space or two BUT the platters were so BIG we had to ask for doggie bags!! The...food was great the staff fun and hospitable. The Wade is a little bit off the main highway but has a long history and worth a visit. By the way, we asked them if they could play play a certain song (embarrassed to say which) and within a minute or two the speakers were taking us back to 1972!More

We visited Wade Pub quite a while ago now after kids footie as it was recommended by friends. We enjoyed it. This visit was to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary and when I menrioned it Lucky (our waitperson) said our first drink was complimentary. Our...seafood platter was very tasty with the accompanying garlic bread just how my husband likes it - buttery and crisp. Hubs was hankering for bangers and mash and I had tiramasu which came with a candle. Lovely touch. Lucky was a brilliant waitperson - we had a lovely time. The only puzzling part was that we were the only people in the place!! Such a shame as we could not fault The Wade. Clean; cool with the ceiling fans turning and pleasant ambiance. More advertising needed maybe as the food was great.More

A group of 6 had a meal. The restaurant was very quiet, only 2 other customers. Meals were not as they used to be, they were over cooked, cold, salad one piece of tomato and more. Not good. Service was disappointing to top the evening...off.More

Service OK but quite slow considering we were the only ones there to start with! Cheeseboard very basic. White cheese on a white plate with a small dish of relish and some crackers- Cheds! Would not have again. Very quiet on a sunny Sat afternoon.

I think it changed a few years back and hence the over haul and new look and service but I don't know if it has changed recently.
