The food was absolutely scrumptious! The service by Charlotte Latham was so professional and she was so attentive - nothing was too much effort. The children were superbly entertained by the indoor playground which is visible from your table. Truly a good night was had by all. Highly recommended….

Had a productive lunch with work colleagues yesterday. Food was good, staff helpful too. We had our meeting out in what they called the garden terrace, which was just what we needed. Thanks Varsity.

Dined here tonight 7/7 with husband and son for dinner. Ordered entree of loaded fries, chicken pieces and calamari. Loaded fries were basically a little melted cheese with pre dried bacon sprinkles rating 3/10 (all were just reheated prepacked foods). Our mains were 2 x steak sandwiches and 1 x battered fish and chips. Here is the pic of the steak sandwich which was dried and served into bite sized pieces on a cheap bread roll. Nothing really went into it except broiled onion and dried minute steak. My fish and chips were covered in vinegar (don't like vinegar). Didn't want to make a scene so paid for the meal of $110 and promptly !!! Waited for the waitress to ask how the meal was (which she didn't) so went quietly but still so furious about the way the sandwiches left the kitchen by the cook/chef, onto the waitress without even maybe checking with the kitchen staff if they should be served. Note to staff - no they shouldn't have been served. The cook needs a lesson in what a steak sandwich is especially when they charge $22 each! We use to eat here all the time when it first opened and over the years it has gradually declined in food quality. Such a shame as it use to be the best pub to eat at. Never again will we go back.
