10 Reviews for Public Bar & Eatery
We were greeted and seated by friendly staff.. Had all our questions from the menu answered. The music was pleasant enough.
Being a busy Saturday night, and during the Wellington on a Plate festival, I thought we might have a long wait but we didn’t at all. Food was outstanding. Each of the four of us were very pleased.
Portions are decent sized, one thing is environment could be improved sometimes Sundays floors still sticky from the night before. nonetheless I will keep public as a resource for my late brunches.
I popped in late on a Monday night with friends, just for dessert/drinks. I would definitely come back to try more on the menu. The haloumi dish particularly caught my eye ‘Grilled Zany Zeus halloumi with semi dried tomatoes, bruschetta, rocket & pomegranate molasses’. Mmmm. It’s calling my name right now, but I’d have to catch a plane to get there – See you next time Public
For an establishment that charges $25-$30 a main this place is really not hitting the mark. Would probably head back for a beer or two as the decor and service is good but we were Thoroughly disappointed and won’t be heading back to eat here in a hurry!
My wife and I went in there with some deal vouchers worth a decent amount of money ($50 each). I can’t remember exactly what was ordered, but remember the steak was burnt and the bread almost called for the dentist as it was that solid.
Service was great. They made a good effort with the best of intentions even when busy.
In terms of atmosphere, this appeared to be a ‘well dressed students pub’. You couldn’t figure out weather it was a sport’s bar, nightclub or just a pub with fancy cosmetics! In saying this, the place itself was nice, but I think they should pay attention to the type of clientele they let in.. Especially during dining hours!
The place has great potential but needs to focus on great food and supporting tidier drinking habits before it takes a turn!
