Perfect for drinks. Went back a second time for the seafood platter. Such a steal at $55 between 2. Great food, good wine, nice location!

I wish there was a negative star rating. The service was beyond bad. Our food took over an hour and when we questioned this we were very rudely shut down. Absolutely terrible.

We are sorry you didn't enjoy your experience with us. We distinctly remember this particular night and the way our staff member was addressed. The wait was not over 1 hour and the 'rudely being shut down' you referred to was in fact the waitress telling you the accurate time that you waited for your meal. Although our waitress may... More

What a great place. Great food, great service and the amazing selection of beer and ciders is great. We had fun reading about the various beers and trying different ciders and beers from the unique collection. The tapas was great. Duck pancakes 10/10, Japanese chicken sliders 10/10, lamb with rice 8.5/10. And kid friendly menu also which was great. Do... More

Called for a drink whilst out walking with the family on Sunday. Fantastic choice of beers to keep everyone happy. A few ordered food and that was good too. Would definitely recommend!

good meal and nice atmosphere, but a cold evening and dining is outdoors and not enough heaters, so we had to leave earlier than we would have liked. Long walk to toilets around other side of building. Staff friendly.

We went to Denman on recommendations from a local, however as vegetarians we were disappointed in the menu. We had a very limited selection of food to pick from and had a quick snack. Be a good spot on a balmy night for beers though...

I just had a great Fathers Day dinner at Denman's with my family. The service was the best I have encountered in any restaurant and the food as incredible.
