Great value for money. Had the fish sliders and they were delicious! The complimentary donut deal also went down a treat!

The food was amazing. Atomsphere was good as well. But from what we really liked was the friendliness of our waitress, it was liked we had known her for years. Lovely 'cheeky' personality fast and reliable.And thats what we think makes a 'dinner out nite' reall fantastic is the waitress, if you have a grumpy expressionless waitress/waiter then it brings your nite 'down'. But Sydney, um, no way, she laughed joked and always had a smile on her face. And this is what more places need are waitresses like her. I do hope that she goes far in that industry, and maybe if we're back there again in the next year, that she is our waitress. Thankyou Sydney. :) Lesley (coppertopp39@yahoo.com)

Came in for dinner, me and my husband both had the sliders (Lamb & Fish), which were great. The only negative was my husband’s dessert – he ordered an Ice Cream sundae, and there was more topping and cream than there was ice cream – once the rest of the sundae was finished, there was still enough topping left that he may as well have had a straw to finish it off!
And there only appeared to be 2x scoops of ice cream

Didn’t think this was really worth the $9.90 we paid for this, when compared to my Chocolate Brownie dessert, which was delicious, and well worth the price!
We can get premium ice cream with larger volumes for about the same price from a supermarket…

Thank you for your review we really like hearing your feedback :) and thanks for visiting Crowded House.
I am sorry to hear that you felt there wasn't enough ice-cream in your Sundae, I will let the chef know your thoughts.
Regards
