My wife and I attended a function last night and it was fantastic. The finger food was incredible, probably the best I have ever had. The service from waitresses and bar staff was brilliant. All were very friendly and efficient. Highly recommended

I'm not one to give the best rating of any place but the food at this pub is worth it. The food was cooked to perfection and even my wife raved about her meal... worth a visit !!!

We have been the last two weeks for the pizza on a Monday night. Great value. Excellent pizza. Crunchy crust, nice range and amount of toppings. Laid back atmosphere. Friendly service. Corn bread also excellent!!

Went for a 40th birthday. Enjoyed the meal. Had fish (Dory) price $28.00, garlic bread $8.00, linguine & burger. Meal was nice although my meal was enough for me (fish) if you are a big eater it may not be enough. Would recommend, prices maybe a little dear. We used an entertainment book voucher.

My group of friends chose the Sunnyside Hotel Restaurant for our weekly dinner. Three of us chose the fish option from the specials list. The other chose the lamb loin salad which she said was excellent. The fish however was very disappointing - very strong smelling, dry and tasteless. The vegetables served with it were lovely, although my meal was... More

We arrived at the Sunnyside Tavern and were met by very friendly staff. We were seated almost immediately (no reservation, no problem). The staff were very attentive and friendly to each other (no bad vibes anywhere). Meal was delicious and very filling. Lovely atmosphere. Service was excellent.

As we were Staying at 'Sunnyside', we decided to eat in. A good decision, as the food was well cooked, the service was not too slow and by the number of other diners in the Tavern, it is a popular local eatery.

Though the room was little it had everything i needed and was very comfortable. The food in the pub was excellent and the staff were very accommodating. Though above the pub, it was quiet and all secure. I'd stay again 👌🏻

We decided to eat in this night, thinking that the meal would be ok and not too expensive, was alarmed to see some of the meal prices, nearly all over $30. As for having a bottle of wine with the meal, the cheapest was $31. It soon becomes an expensive night, when you are in town for a night and... More
