Been twice in the past couple of months-Steak the first time-fish the second-its always good when you can eat a steak with a normal knife -if you need a steak knife the steak is too tough-the fish was fresh and great.Good friendly staff-great service

Lovely dinner, had run out of a couple of options but the ones we did get were great. Staff were fantastic and very friendly. Thank you for a great night.

Went for a family dinner; plenty of space and the service in the restaurant was friendly, humorous and welcoming. At times the service was a little slow, although we had plenty of talking to catch up on so we were happy to dine leisurely. Mains were good and between us we had fish, chicken, pork belly - good sized portions... More

It was a large meal and very tasty. Service was good. Place was nice and clean. I love that fact that you can take your... More

I have been here a few times and the food is always good pub food - the place is clean even if it is a little bit dated. The service is good - sometimes a little on the slow side but nothing horrendous. I always think of it as a good chance to chat with good company. The bar is... More

Had lunch there a couple of weeks ago and although the service can be a little slow, the food was good. Had fish and chips from their $10 menu and the piece of fish was large and... More

Went out for dinner with family members... we all arrived between 5:00-515 pm. Orders went in and then the wait started? Bit concerning that as the orders where taken some of us decided to have the Pork Belly roast meal - answer might not be able to do this? We were the only group there and the place had only... More

A private function. Service was great. Food very good and they managed to serve the large group pretty much all together. The meals were too big.

We were the only ones there at 530 on a sunday evening, kids dine free so we thought this would be a great place to take our 2 young boys with the grandparents. Not so much. We had to wait ages...more than one hour for our dinner (as I said, we were the only ones there) and when they arrived,... More

We have been a few times to the Furnace and have been disappointed all the time so we won't go there again. Not even with a group.
