I order a basil scroll type thing with my coffee and a female waitstaff was extremely rude both when placing my order and when she delivered it, simply dropping it at my table without a word. Unsure of the name but she was short with darkish hair

Huge serving at an affordable price. Location is just in town and staff are always friendly to you. I like that their bar meals are available at all times.

(There is a choice of different dining styles at Fairweathers.) We skipped starters and kicked off with main course. We both had the fillet steak, cooked medium, and we were both very... More

Food wasn't good at all and on top an employee got fired at the table right next to us and was sobbing her eyes out... is that the way to treat people? I don't think so... have heard anything of common sense??? Never again!

We asked a few questions about the food when ordering and I got the feeling she felt like we were being a nuisance. Yes it is lunchtime and they don't look too busy.

We had dinner at Fairweathers last night, I had the fillet steak cooked medium rare. It was a fantastic meal. Two others at our table had the pork belly and the way it was presented on the plate looked outstanding. The service, our table the staff were great. We'll definitely be back, cheers.

I often go to Fairweathers as I love the steak and the mushrooms and order it. $29.00 I EXPECT IT TO BE PERFECT But last Friday 23rd I was very disappointed with my order. I cut my first piece off the steak but it was well cooked and was not medium to rare and when I mentioned it was not... More

We went on a wet and windy Saturday for lunch and yes they were busy however the food was really average especially the special I had which was a pork sandwich. Normally the food is much better.....will give them another try though.
