Food underwhelming and came out cold.
There was absolutely zero service, given every order had to be made in person at the bar which involved long queues each time.
We had also booked to have dinner but seated at a high bar table which I felt was incredibly uncomfortable and inappropriate given the amount reflective of fine dining.

In summary, a really expensive pub and I can’t ever give it a great views pitch as we really didn’t have one.

Went here randomly on a Tuesday night for a casual bite after some cocktails at Blu Bar at the Shangri-La. I had booked earlier that day with no difficulty (online - pretty normal in the current Covid status).

Staff were friendly and happy to engage in a brief chat, all Covid-safe rules were being adhered to, food and drinks were served very quickly, and the quality of our meals satisfying.

Two pints of beer and two pub-style mains with a side of Arancini balls came to $98 - this sounds expensive, but let's be honest, this place is in an absolutely world-class location, so paying close to double what you might pay at another pub anywhere else is 100% to be expected.

Place probably had about 50 people all up eating and drinking indoors and outdoors, all in socially-distanced groupings, so there was enough buzz and chatter to make it enjoyable (nothing worse than going somewhere so quiet that you feel like you are in a Library).

All this for 8pm on a non-descript Tuesday night in the middle of a Pandemic? Can't fault it.

Support local business! (Yes, even the bigger chains too! Everyone is doing it tough)

Def recommend for a Monday-Wed cosy night out. Book ahead just to be safe x

Staff were exceptional. I had booked a table a couple of weeks' prior then when we turned up we were upstairs outside on a chilly evening. I asked if we could move downstairs inside to where the live music was and much more of a vibe. Not a problem at all. Staff were very friendly, professional and quick to act - so very much appreciated as it was my son's 23rd birthday. Food was great and service quick. Love this place!

Great location, but not making the most of it.
Live music plus. But being barely at even half capacity and food taking 40mins? And that too cold (even fries?) left me super shocked 🙄
Beers as on untappd are 3 out of 5.
So nothing really exciting about the place unless you wanna get big group together in this fab location to sip on some sparkling water.

Please do better! Beers & food :)
Good ambience and selection of live musician :)

Food portions were good except for the fish of the day. I'm not a big eater, but I ended up eating my meal and the chips and salad from my sons plate.

Staff absolutely uninterested in being at work. The floor staff and bar staff were generally unattentive, unhelpful, and generally uninterested. The kitchen staff obviously forgot to pick up the groceries. Half of my party's food choices were not available. Why offer smoked pork if it isn't smoked and available for the lunch rush? also if your menu says premium rump why are you serving rib eye. For the premium prices charged for food, you would expect the service to match. Very disappointing

Booked a table with Squire's Landing for Saturday night. Had a great night!

The staff were super understanding when the booking had to be altered day of. The location was absolutely fantastic!

Everyone was following appropriate protocol with Covid safety regulations. Service was delightful and very welcoming.

Security were very helpful when advising our group to move locations when certain sections of the bar were closing. My party and I stayed all night and definitely enjoyed ourselves!

Will definitely book again!

Didn't have food so not sure why I'm forced to rate that.
But wasn't overly friendly servíce sadly. Asked if we could sit elsewhere as placed inside on a table near the entrance but was told "no, we're fully booked". Heaps of other tables about that were still empty the whole 2 hrs we were there... For our apparent 2 hr booking.
