Craig Shipway Apr 11, 2022
So much potential. The staff just seemed disinterested & untrained. I booked the Basement over a month ago for 11pax, and they wanted to seat us at 3 different tables. Some meals didn't arrive, though were billed, wrong meals were delivered, some were half delivered (potato wedges with sour cream & sweet chilli sauce...oh sorry, we've run out of sour cream!!) Tables covered with empty glasses & plates while staff play on their phones. No napkins or cutlery unless you ask. Food was bland, luke-warm, & over priced. They did cheerfully adjust the bill after I asked. See less

What a great little place tucked away in Woden. Great food and service. Good selection of tap beers and fantastic cocktails. Live music and to top it all off, bowling and games. Had such a fun time, definitely going back for more. See less

Was there for a friends 20th birthday party. We ordered food, and people over 18 also ordered drinks. No ID was asked prior to entry. After a little while we were rudely asked by one worker to leave as no people under the age of 18 weren’t allowed on the premises. Didn’t see any signs or anything that told us this was the case. The menu had a kids burger and their website mentioned welcoming people under the age of 18. At least waitresses were nice. See less

Love The Alby. I had my birthday dinner and drinks here. We started upstairs for dinner and partied downstairs in the basement playing pool and drinking cocktails (which are delish). The staff are amazing and the food was excellent, gluten free options as well. Thank you for the best time. As a Canberra local, it's great to see the Woden nightlife again! See less

This bar at the base of the refurbished building was quite pleasing. It is modern and open plan. There's plenty of indoor and outdoor seating arrangements for various group sizes. The food and drinks menu was ample, service was prompt, and food was tender, freshly made, and tasty. Ordering from the menu website was problematic using the QR code, felt a bit difficult to handle, and included a surcharge from the website service provider. That was a surprise. I loved the concept although the staffed bar is 2 metres away. See less

Great service and attention for a fantastic birthday party. We had a 21st birthday party at the Alby last Saturday night. Sarah and the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive. They made sure the evening was a success. Everything went perfectly. The food and drinks were perfect for our guests and the games kept them entertained. Highly recommended for a function! See less

We dined at The Ably tonight for our anniversary dinner having heard great things about the location. We had some wonderful cocktails, super delicious and we found the atmosphere really pleasing. However, our food was quite the disappointment. Our food came out completely mixed up. Wrong extras on each plate, sauces wrong, extra prawns were about the size of a 10cent piece, supposed to be 5, was only 4 cost $10 extra. When we asked the waitress about this she seemed to think everything was correct, even bringing the receipt out to show us. When she realised it was wrong she went and got some missed items, whilst my wife and I exchanged bits and pieces on our plates. There was also no coleslaw as pictured in the menu which I was really looking forward too.... probably sounds strange, but I had a craving for it once I saw it, instead a handful of dressed rocket. When we asked about this, we were told... oh, is that still on the menu, we don't do that anymore. My wife has an intolerance to rocket, so it would have been good to know. We aren't normally fussy people, but when we consider how much we spent on the food - two mains were $95, it was absolutely not worth the value and the mess ups really decreased the enjoyment. Very very over priced, especially when not executed well or paired with the advertised items. See less

Been here twice - once for food and once for drinks. The food was tasty and the staff were attentive. The downstairs area was a great spot to drink a beer and watch the cricket. A much needed addition to Woden. See less

Wonderful new addition to Woden. Great beer (I tried the Alby, which was light and refreshing) good food (the chicken burger was excellent while the mushroom burger was just average) and the concept is outstanding. Outdoor seating is surrounded by jasmine and the retro 80s music is fun. In the basement is a room with mini bowling alleys, pool tables and pinball machines. We'll be back! See less

Went there for lunch. It was not too busy and therefore the staff were attentive and kind. Really lovely ambience and chill vibes. You order on the table which is very easy through the app or by tapping your phone - no need for unhygienic paper menus. Yummy chicken lollipops and yhe chicken main. The pizzas are traditional and I think we just ordered one which probably didn't suit our tastes but a great experience otherwise. Iced coffee was also delicious. I hope they remain chill and friendly and quick good service. See less

Only discovered this place about a week ago. Great to see more decent pubs opening in the Woden area and livening the place up. This has a great outdoor seating area for the warmer weather, but also has a cool downstairs sports bar with pool table, modified bowling alley and pinball machines. Had a session here recently with some friends and has a great friendly vibe. Will definitely be back. See less

This is such a fun place! The ball game and pool table were awesome. The staff were lovely. And the fitout is just gorgeous. I will definitely be back to try out the food, it looks great. Also you can order and pay from your table which is a brilliant idea. So nice to have such a funky place in Woden See less
