As we were Staying at 'Sunnyside', we decided to eat in. A good decision, as the food was well cooked, the service was not too slow and by the number of other diners in the Tavern, it is a popular local eatery.

Though the room was little it had everything i needed and was very comfortable. The food in the pub was excellent and the staff were very accommodating. Though above the pub, it was quiet and all secure. I'd stay again 👌🏻

We decided to eat in this night, thinking that the meal would be ok and not too expensive, was alarmed to see some of the meal prices, nearly all over $30. As for having a bottle of wine with the meal, the cheapest was $31. It soon becomes an expensive night, when you are in town for a night and... More

Great food, great service, cold beer. Beware if you book a table for two on a busy nite you might get jammed up against the bar and spend your evening with someone's bum in your face while they are getting there drinks.

I recently stopped in for lunch and tried something from their all new menu. The food was fantastic and the portion size was spot on. The staff were very friendly and the service was quick; this helped me as I was on a lunch break and didn't have too much time to sit around. When I have more time I... More

We have been to the Sunnyside previously a few years ago and it was pretty average service but the food was decent so we thought before the soccer we would see after all that time whether it was better. Thankfully it was, as usual the food was very good (Tacos & Thai Beef Salad) and the service at the food... More

Externally it looked a bit "uninviting", BUT, the Bar, the Restaurant and the Room, TOPS!!!!! The Bar Staff very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful, the Room was fresh, clean and very comfortable and the Restaurant offered a variety of tasty dishes at clean and roomy surroundings, including "al fresco". The only criticism I have is,... More

I've stopped in here for a meal several times. Always a good selection, well priced, and tasty. Staff are friendly and meals are generally served pretty quickly.

We dined here last night with another family, so between us there were three children aged 6 years. At first I was quite impressed with the set up. Once in the restaurant area you really wouldn't know you were in a pub, with pokie areas and the main bar out of sight from the kids, a big tick. It's quite... More
