We received a very warm welcome from the staff on Good Friday. Pizzas are well done and great value for money. Good selection of quality wines. The tables are quite close together so you can feel crammed in, however it was easy to find a table even though it was busy. Overall a great experience.

We went here recently in a group of nine for my sons birthday. Food and service were great! Cocktails also. Have been here before for Sunday lunch some time ago and it was good back then as well. Will go back. Great location and atmosphere.

Business trip last week meant a colleague and I had both lunch and dinner at the Squire's maiden. The owner was a generous host enabling me to taste a couple of tap beers not known to me. Food was tasty, generous and great value. Overall a lovely spot to enjoy a relaxed meal. My compliments to the owner and his... More

In Newcastle for just the one night and my gf and I were looking for a nice place to eat. As Newcastle was quite dead on a Monday, we walked past a chalkboard advertising some chicken and lamb skewers - yum! As it was a Monday special, they were only $15, so we decided to try them out. The staff... More

We initially met friends here for "ONE" Pre-Dinner Drink on Friday, 17 March. It was pouring rain and had been for the past week, it was pretty quiet around Newcastle. But, I must say the Staff rostered on that evening were EXCEPTIONAL, they all seemed happy to be there and were friendly. Exactly how it should be in customer service.... More

Thought this would be a nice spot for a dinner for 2. Booked early afternoon for an evening dinner, once seated realised this was just another pub style venue. The menu looked impressive to the eye but we have had better food at our local pub. T shirts & baseball caps were the attire and as my wife and I... More

Dined at restaurant for dinner on a weeknight. Service ok and food average. No WOW factor. Terribly cramped and humid. Unlikely to visit again.

Located right near the water this is a great place for dinner and a few beers. A popular weekend venue and frequented by business clients throughout the week
