    My sisters, cousin and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Micawber Tavern. The food was generous and very tasty. I am looking forward to the next time I come along, and would definitely recommend to anyone who likes a great pub atmosphere and yummy food and friendly staff.

    The food was good, service extremely poor. We had booked a table outside, which was lovely. However after being given menus and asking our wait staff to come back in a few mins so we could look at the menu first, we waited for over 45 mins and actually had to remind the staff that we were outside and to come and take our order. To which we were told they had forgotten about us and laughed it off. Then had to wait over half an hour for our food to be brought out. Again asking for an update on where the food was. Service leaves a lot to be desired. I understanding that you were busy, however might pay to keep your customers updated and to not be forgotten.

    Very enjoyable Sunday afternoon lunch and live music was extremely entertaining. Staff were friendly and appropriately attentive. The only downside was the length of time to wait for our mains, around 45 mins. However, the live music and quality of the food made up for it. Would definitely go back!

    The Tavern is dead to me now.... We sat outside in the 'outdoor heated' seating. Arrived at 5pm, gas heaters were constantly turning off. The drinks order taken within 5-10 mins which was great. Advised the staff about the heating turning off when we received our drinks. Waited for over 30 mins with noone coming to take our meal order or attend to no heating. At 5.40pm we had to walk into the tavern ourselves to query when someone would take our food order and attend to the heating because we were with our small children who were freezing cold sitting outside without heating! The staff were standing at the stage talking and looking like they were doing sweet FA. We received a weak apology by the waitress who finally came outside to take our order. We asked for entree and mains to come out together to avoid any further wait times. Another staff changed the gas cylinder...which lasted a few mins then would turn off again. By 6.25pm.... another 45mins since taken our already delayed food order WE again had to enter the tavern to waive down staff to see where our meals were. We had been at the tavern for 1hr and 25mins already with only drinks served! The waitress said she would check for us. She returned outside to our table to advise the food is cooking now and will be a further 10mins....I queried why only now is our meal being prepared?! Again, a weak apology and a pathetic excuse about problems in the kitchen. The food was ok...very restricted menu since the change over. The taste wasn't horrible but for the price and ridiculous wait time it certainly wasn't worth it. I am truly disappointed in the Tavern since the takeover. The service is horrible, the food selection is condensed to this basic excuse for an overpriced wank of a menu and the whole atmosphere has been lost to this 'revamp.' We were once regular patrons who loved going to this homely Tavern with our kiddies to enjoy a few drinks and a great meal that had a nice enviting vibe. Never again

    Fantastic food, we sat in a window booth in the bar section which was cosy. Great Sunday afternoon with one of the best parmas I’ve had in a long while, the vegetarian mushroom main was equally great as were the kids meals. Definitely on the list for a return visit

    We had the best seat right next to fireplace which was great! Staff are friendly, helpful, attentive, all smiling. The owner was instilling extra heating upstairs in the public bar at the time, this will be good. Food was excellent, it was a tough choice to select our main. Pool table available with some nice booth areas and other attractive seating in the public bar. I’m looking forward to enjoying the outdoor space in summer with the live music! Not far from from Ferntree, great local place in a gorgeous setting. You will not be disappointed! Open table confirmation of our booking was sent to my email yet the restaurant did not have our booking, this happens every time with open table. Luckily we were able to be accommodated.

    The greeting from Liam was the start of an amazing evening. First time here and are sold on returning. Everyone friendly, very casual easygoing staff. If you are a 'cold' person though, do bring an extra jacket or have legs covered as felt quite chilly which was a bit distracting however will be better prepared next time like those who had jumpers on.

    The Micawber has been renovated and there’s a brand new menu since I’ve been there last… pre COVID. All I can say is… just wonderful. There’s a limited menu of around 8 or so mains, but every one looked outstanding. Often better to have 8 things they do well rather than 30 items that are pre cooked and slap dash. The ambience and service were excellent. Highly recommended!!

    The tavern was only moderately busy with a lot of wait staff . I Had booked, possibly they forgot to submit our order as it took close to 1.4 hours to get our lunch after ordering, and wait staff were very good at avoiding eye contact . There was a cursory apology , no reason given . Food was okay not exceptional and certainly not something that would take a long time to deliver
