    Meal sizes were small and lacked flavour. Expensive for what received. Easier to go to the bar than wait for staff to come round and a quicker than ordering from table QR code.

    We have eaten very frequently at the Tavern over the last five years and always been pleased with the food and the service (and the people). Just one complaint this time. The chicken was a bit dry so we asked for some more sause. We were told that we had to pay $2 before the request could be satisfied. A trivial sum but not good for customer relations. As a loyal customer we were quite surprised.

    Food over cooked chicken, tough steak and under cooked pasta. Not much mince in bolognese sauce and had to pay for extra parmesan cheese as it was very stingy. Staff too busy to help

    Disappointed we can no longer order wings from the sports bar to eat in the main restaurant. Used to be regulars but standards have dropped

    I must give praise to team member Josh behind the bar who brought us a replacement gin and tonic after we informed him that the mixer in the drink didn't taste like tonic. Josh look into the matter and found there was a problem with the supply line. Josh brought a replacement drink we weren't expecting. Good work Josh. Great customer service.

    Thank you for leaving this feedback. We have passed it on to Josh!

    Bring back the QR codes. Had to ask several times for someone to take our order. First team member could only place drink orders. Rather than getting someone she preferred to put menus in order at the service desk. Second was a a manager rather than assisting said would grab someone else who she could see was busy. Why is the team not cross trained? Service levels have dropped would much prefer the QR codes to place orders. Drinks also took forever not sure if it was the bar staff chatting like last time or the wait staff not keeping up. Again had to ask a a manger where our drinks were. We frequently visit Parklands but this was the worst service levels to date.

    Although our dinner was lovely I booked this Mother's Day dinner based on the smokehouse platter that was advertised on your website. On arrival I checked over the menu and couldn't locate so asked one of the staff. The lady informed us that it hasn't been on offer for several months & the website doesn't often get updated. Pretty disappointed as I would of chosen another venue had I known. Care factor from 2 staff members was minimal. The steak I did purchase was cooked perfect though. Garlic Cheesy bread wasn't great nor was the dessert crumble. Sorry not normally one to complain.
    Parklands TavernResponded on May 15, 2024
    Thanks for the feedback Samantha, sorry about the mix up with the smokehouse platter. We do offer meats from the smokehouse regularly, but we will look at updating our website make it more clear.

    Took mum for mother's day lunch. Had to send her fish back twice as it was all wet and moushy inside.In the end she ended up eating her lunch by herself after having to keep sending hers back. She was very upset that we all didn't get to enjoy our lunch with her for Mother's day 😒
