Had heard some good comments on this place. Found a cold barn with lots of rickety tables and poor service. There were 4 of us, we all ordered a dish each to share, two dishes were ok, two were bloody awful. It was cold, the...table tops need a screw driver on them to stop the looseness so you can eat without need to steady the table, and lot of table had this issue as we tried several of them. Better off going to a pub for pub grub and a real beer, I won;t be back and neither will my family.More

Massive disappointment tonight As regulars to be treated with massive disrespect and made to feel like you are stupid is not fool Asked 4 times for the outside heaters to be turned on only to be told they only had 1 setting and where on...Really I’m not that stupid and even touched it and not on Last time we asked we were told that we were the only people out so DID Not WANT TO WASTE POWER Really how much money do we spend there Tonight claimed my $10 bonus after spending $111 and is never came off my app, told we would get a free beer that never came Ordered another in app never came because 9 staff sitting drinking and unwinding before 9 at night so told us when we had to go and ask for our beer it never came through on the app so it was free, are you bloody stupid I was charged for it, just because all of you can’t be bothered checking the computer as all resting Told 2 staff members and nothing Why have an app and rewards program if it doesn’t work Sorry but service is normally ok but tonight was absolutely crap and as a regular will not be back anytime soonMore

We had 10 visitors, tried calling 8 times to reschedule for an extra 2 Pinole but no answer. when asked to accomodate 2 extra people we were basically brushed off and told they don’t have a phone number for the establishment!! Food took 1 hour,...came out all over the place and a poor standard!! Drinks took over 15 mins for 3 Tap beers. Staff is rude and ignorant, asked for a side of sauce and never arrived. I don’t know who runs this place but it’s a jokeMore

Went to Smalls Bar for lunch today. What a frustrating experience. Waited a long time to be seated, waited a long time to get a drink, waited forever for the meals. Clearly understaffed. When the food finally arrived it was terrible. Meatballs were dry and...brisket was tough and fatty. Could not eat it, got up and walked out. Never Again.More

I love being able to order via their app. Great menu selection. A range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Great place for dinner for two or meet up with friends.

I thought it was an amazing event to allow single people to get out together and have this selected drinks menu. It was amazing

Smalls Bar used to be our regular, but with recent times and commitments we have been spending less and less time there. It was time for a spontaneous dinner out and we thought why not go back to our old favourite. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the...same, with the atmosphere and customer service lacking, and we were left wondering whether we would come back again, even though we had wanted to. I should have trusted my instincts and left as soon as we opened the large door to a near-empty bar and a staff member sitting casually at the other side of the bar, not paying attention. As per previous visits, we ordered off the app, and as previous, the specials were not again on the app. There also appeared to be junior staff learning, which is lovely, but there was a lot of miscommunication between handing back menus and putting down share plates to the point of being awkward. The ladies toilets was a disgrace. Not disgusting to the point of not using, but it had not been cleaned properly with marks up the walls and dated posters. There was a broken toilet door and a broken tap set. These things should not be left to be fixed if you are open for customers. I thought with all the time the staff have on hand now with the app for ordering and having to get your own water, the customer service you did receive, and the venue would be a lot better. Saving grace was the taco’s and the local wine. We still haven’t been back.More

I’m a chef I Had the sirloin which is medium rare but still ultra chewy and about 1/3 of the cut was fat, the potato galette was dry and plating was lacklustre not worth it for the price of $38
