    Fantastic afternoon. Started with tastings of vodkas and cordials, then we made our own grazing platter which was lovely with a glass of wine and their flavoured vodka, will definitely be returning

    All the staff were very friendly and we didn't wait long to be served. We had the arancini and bourbon burger, both were very tasty. I liked that you also had the option to put together your own platter of cheeses, meats etc. There is a very good drinks menu including cocktails...I would recommend the strawberries and cream. We will definitely return

    I am a local. Some friends had travelled from Canberra and were keen to visit Billsons. The venue itself was excellent. Unfortunately thats where it ended. Once at the Speak Easy Bar, a staff member told me I needed to tell the "girl upstairs" we'd arrived. I walked back up stairs and was then ushered back down to the bar. We were informed it was table service and took our seats. After 10 minutes, and several staff waking by, I walked to the bar and asked if I could order our drinks. I was told it was table service. When I explained we'd been here for 10 minutes, the staff member came and took our drinks. After these arrived we were keen to order again. Nope. No service. We gave up after another 15 minutes of waiting. It was even difficult to get one of the four staff behind the bar to take our payment. As a local, I won't be back.

    We are so sorry to have dropped the ball on this occasion. It is really important to us that we look after locals, visitors and every guest who chooses to spend their time and money with us at Billson's. We've used your feedback to revisit and remind ourselves of how we meet this goal. Thank you for providing this opportunity.

    I chose Billson’s for my birthday lunch because I knew I would love everything - and I did.😊 The new grazing board is a great option but I just love the arancini so much I order them every time. My cocktail of choice is currently The Bramble, although I would happily drink any of the delicious concoctions on the drinks menu. And as always, have to mention the lovely staff - thank you for making my birthday special!

    Had an absolutely sensational visit to Billson’s with my mother - there was not a single thing we could fault. The highlight was the staff - I have not had the pleasure of service like they gave in such a long time. Everyone was so friendly and genuinely seemed to care and enjoy being at work. The food was excellent, bettered only by the sensational drink selection. The brewery is absolutely beautiful and being able to watch the factory working provides such a great experience. 100% will be back and have already recommended Billson’s to many friends and family

    Speakeasy was a lovely setting. We were seated at a table that had such poor lighting that we had to use our phone lights to read the menus. The food was OK but fell short in some instances, to the description of what to expect from the menu. The gin was delicious, and the George Collins is a must! Service was good, attentive and informed.
