Food is good, great night out with friends. Cocktail bar staff could do with some training but all n all a great place to spend the afternoon or night with some friends.

Food is a little bit pricey, but the atmosphere and service is great. Loved playing pool here on multiple occasions.

Being from Canada, I really appreciated the layout of this huge place when I walked in. The way this place has been laid out with patios all over the place, sports bar with TV screens, private function rooms and other indoor and outdoor areas is very impressive. That was to be the only good thing about this place though. I... More

Just ate at the Fiddler and had the worst meal since being here in Australia for almost 3 months. I had Chicken, leek, and mushroom pie with green beans and gravy. The gravy was not enough to even cover the top of the very insipid coloured pie. My husband had Beer battered fish and chips. The food looked like it... More

We were in Rouse Hill area and looking for a good place to have a quick lunch. The Fiddler came to my mind, which is a a very popular and well known pub/restaurant in the area. It is on the Windsor road, a little away from the Rouse Hill shopping centre. I have visited this place a long time ago... More

We came here for Valentine's Day. I come here because it has good ambience. The food was ok, service was mediocre. I can understand they must be run off their feet on this particular day so I'll look past the fact it took over an hour to get a burger. We were quite happy to enjoy some drinks in the... More

Hubby and I thought we'd try this for a early Sunday breakfast before heading out for the day. Checked the website which says it's open at 8am on Sunday, we got there at about 8:15 and the place was all locked up, I phoned them to see if they do actually open at 8am and a very rude sounding lady...
