Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Disgusted about listening to the patrons gossip, and seeing bar owner groping women on dance floor. Horrible atmosphere!

If you don't like to dress up after work and meet the people who put in a full days work, then this is for you. No fancy pants, but alright live music, good beers and the galley is not too bad.

Myself and my husband often frequent Frings , and have recommended it to a number of friends. We recently took family from Perth and was sadly let down as it took an hour to receive our meals. What made it worse was that the meals...didn't come out at the same time, two of us had finished our mains before the others were brought to the table. I understand if the place was busy...but sadly it wasn't. Hopefully it was a one off. We haven't lost all faith in you yet Frings...hears hoping for an improvement.More

We had three pizzas. All of them atrocities to the pizza making art. Service was nice once we were able to identify that some ladies sitting down and chatting actually were responsible but needed to be prompted.

We ordered a couple of pizzas and a burger and the food was yummy and fresh. Customer service was really good as well. The staff gave us some coloring books for our little one and we all ended up coloring while waiting for food. One...happy customer :)More

Went there with a group of people, ordered 12 pizzas, everyone was impressed. Service was good. Only complaint would be the band was so loud we could not hear each other at all, however good music. So if your not interested in a chat and...more for a dance then this would be fine. New renovations looks good.More
