    Had an absolutely amazing experience at The Press Gang. We ordered “The Drill” and everything that came out was outstanding. Some of the best food I’ve ever eaten. Our server was lovely, she was very attentive and made sure we had as good of an experience as possible. Would highly recommend The Press Gang for a special night out.

    Great service and food quality. We ordered “The Drill” and it was the best decision. The Press Gang team had made our Birthday Celebration very special. Thank you very much!

    Very pleasant setting, love the ambiance and the wine selection. Food was delicious , as expected. Only taking off points because the lobster was a tad overcooked and we did spot a mouse during our dinner. Amazing staff

    Casual but upscale pub-like atmosphere. I’d go back just for the oysters: Fresh, local, well presented and tasty as heck. For our mains: I had the seafood risotto and my wife the lamb. The Risotto was the ‘right kind of chewy’ with the scallops and prawns cooked to perfection (fish and lobster were more on the well done side but still good). The rack of lamb was an unexpected winner (we’d gone for the seafood but my wife opted for the local lamb and I got to steal a bite or two). She had it done to medium: flavourful, tender and juicy!
