We had a late booking as that was all that was left, but that became a problem as we ended up being the last ones there, half an hour later for orders to be taken, 30 to 45mins later for meals to be delivered which...was fine by us,we ate our meal in a normal pace that anyone else would, but the vaccuming started in the next room to us, lights were being switched off around us, staff looked annoyed when we wanted a dessert and to top it off they had turned off coffee machine, so nobody was allowed a hot drink!The food was sub par dry overcooked salmon and tough steak. The staff seem to be more interested in chatting with each other than serving customers, and found it very irritating and patronising that one of the young waitresses kept calling us babe, doll, sweetheart. Service and food has gone way down!More

My husband enjoyed his main. Southern chicken. My son had the kids burger he said it was ok but he really disliked his spider drink. He said there was one mouthful of drink in it . My two little ones had the kids pancakes they...loved it . Hmm I had the pork belly and bacon burger from tavern menu. And was pretty disappointed. The dressing on coleslaw was so over powering and tarty that it ruined the whole burger. Most of the pork was ok but places was pretty dry. For the price I have had WAY better burgers. The wait staff were FANTASTIC though top notchMore

We had a fantastic time at the cabbage tree, meals came out quick and were lovely. I’m mainly leaving a review for our fantastic waiter, a tall darker man who served us and had a huge knowledge of the wines and beers. We all commented...how polite and professional he was. Thank you he made the night! (5/3/21 we were there around 5.30pm, not sure of waiters name).More

I don't know where they get their steaks from sorry. I'm just a diner there not the owner.
