Marquess Tavern

Fantastic food. The beef was perfectly cooked, and the whitebait for appertisers were great with a chilled glass of chardonnay. Also try the lamb....very succulent and tender. The serving sizes were very generous for most of the dishes. Service was friendly and efficient.

Four Seasons Chinese

Food was OK....although it's hard to go wrong with noodles and fried vegetables with garlic. Vegetables were quite fresh and crunchy. However, watch out for the two bills, one with the list of dishes, and the hand written bill attached on top with just a total. Interestingly, the two bills don't add to the same, the difference being a discretionary 12.5% which is conveniently not disclosed. I'm sure there have been many occasions where larger groups (not having the patience to tally the itemised bill) have inadvertently contributed more than 25% service charge. During our meal, we witnessed a couple add on a sizable gratuity to their final bill, with the waiter conveniently not disclosing that a gratuity had already been added but not itemised on their bill.

Fish Central

Based on a recommendation from a friend, we thought we would give this restaurant a try. We were promptly seated however it was downhill from there onwards. The fish we ordered was average but passable. The chips looked and tasted as though it had been cooked in the afternoon and microwaved prior to serving. The most disappointing part of the night was that the waitress and, from what I believe to be the owner, were extremely rude.

I have promised myself never to return.
