Went there for a pre dinner birthday drink. Ordered cocktails and a beer. IPA was OK, cocktails very nice. But it took faaaaaar tooooo long to be served them. Waitress was apologetic, saying they were busy (which wasn't the case), but I suspect they were...short staffed. Nice environment and staff. Hopefully speed of service improves as the world returns to a better normal.More

Hi MikeAKL, Thanks for your feedback and we are sorry to read your Longroom experience was not up to our usual standard. We currently do have a focus on service and efficient delivery of food & drinks, so to read your review is quite disappointing....More

I regularly stop in for both a morning coffee and treat. The cheesy puffs are stunning. Another favourite for me is Calamari, and theirs must be one of the best I’ve had. Not the standard frozen stuff some places try to pass off, is worth...stopping for it in its self. Also a little inside tip for you......they have private parking for clients out the back, so you’re not stuck spending time and money looking for parking. Enjoy - i certainly always do... See there again soon!!More

Pasta and ribs were great, however the lamb shoulder was dry and flavourless. The platter that I ordered was fine however the potato wedge skins had black spots on them, not only were they there but they were huge. Now I know you can't die...from them and you can eat them but they were quite big and I found them on 3 of the 6 wedges I had. I addressed this with the waiter who brushed it off. I addressed it again with the same waiter JAMES who said he'd pass it onto the chefs. I then raised a third time to which he said he raised it with his manager. When I went to pay for my meal the manager had not heard about anything that was discussed with the waiter. The manager tried to remain mutual as they believed there were two differing stories. Now I respect retail/hospitality staff because I've been in that position. But to receive such unprofessional service was appalling. No only that but the manager refused to agree with the black spots that I found on my potatoes. It was too late as the plate had been taken away however I have photos of those black spots and I doubt anyone let alone the manager herself would've have eaten them since she agreed that they were always like that and that she eats them. Not a very good experience both from the waiter and manager. Hit and miss, with food because the ribs and pasta were good but overall experience I WOULD NOT GO BACK. They could not take constructive criticism to improve their business but if thats how they want to operate, let them be.More

Nice place. Great atrium area too with attentive service in a relaxed setting. Loved breakfast which was mushrooms on sourdough with a dukka crusted poached egg. Wow!!

Casual dining, fast/pleasant service. I ordered a Reuben sandwich, husband ordered Spicy chicken wings and we shared bone marrow with crostini’s. Very reasonable prices and Food was quite good too.

Third visit for me, thanks for inviting us Todd, not for under 22 year olds as this not only a great vibrant bar to meet friends and enjoy great music we really had a great lovely at very fair prices with generous portions. This place...is really geared up to look after its customers the staff are so friendly and the service is second to none.

The longroom has a great atmosphere, friendly staff but the food was mediocre, the chicken Parma was tasteless and the pork ribs were dry and flavorless. In fact we were not sure what sort of meat we were eating. Reasonably priced but overall lacking.More
