Wasn't sure if this place would be OK because it's a franchise but was impressed with the food and the service. See less

We visited here a few weeks ago. Not sure the location is the right spot. I would've thought in the actual shopping area near Countdown would be more appropriate. Still, it caters to the newest residential areas I guess. As a restaurant I thought it lacked appeal in comparison to the city branch which has alot more character. There was no ambience. I can't pinpoint exactly what it lacks but there's something missing. There was plenty of seating with two outside areas, one for smokers. The doors were open as it was a nice day. We were seated in the restaurant side as we'd requested. After our meal we went into the bar area. The bar stools need replacing. They're practically the same size as the table so you sit well above the table. If you're tall like my brother is at 6'5, you're bending over it. Anyway, the menu offered a small plate menu before 5pm. They had dumplings for $1 each, so we ordered enough for six people. You also had to pay extra for the sauce at $2. The chunky chips was a very generous portion, not greasy and served with tomato and aioli. To top it off our desserts were again, very generous servings. Although, you had to wait until 5pm for dessert! Creme Brulee with berry compote and ice cream, Sticky date pudding with baileys and butter and the trio icecream with berries were delightful. Food wise: the portions presentation, cost were more than reasonable. We were all very happy. Drinks service to the table was also ok, the service was attentive. However, you would think when serving drink orders they would also clear the table of the dirty plates at the same time. We found we were always prompting them to do this. Initially, when taking drink orders they wouldn't take away the dirty glasses so our table was filling up with dirty dishes. There was a young duo performing, a guitarist and singer. As muso's ourselves we felt they lacked soul with no connection. Her voice was nice, a bit soft for the songs they chose and you couldn't hear her over the guitar. Still, our toes were tapping and with practise and confidence I'm sure they will grow. Overall, it was an 'OK' experience hence, the three stars. See less

Have been here a few times recently. Each time the food has been delicious, served promptly, and some great recommendations from the bar staff about suitable drinks. One time, we even ended up buying a bottle of an unusual rum to take home which was recommended and absolutely delicious! They always check regularly if you need anything else, so our glasses are never empty for long. Premises are clean and nicely set out too See less

Their branch ‘look’ really good, taste was ok-ish, serving size was generous and everything was well-cooked. But, somehow they missed the mark in every way. For example: the vinegar was a bit strong for their poached eggs, the baked beans could add a little extra salt, the hash browns was a bit ‘moist’. The bacons were cooked ‘perfectly’, not too dry not too oily but there is just something missing about them but I don’t what it is. Coffee was great thou, good atmosphere. Hence the 3 stars. Might revise the rating for their lunch/dinner menu in the future. See less

Great service, food was fantastic and the staff friendly. I did not have to ask for a doggie bag, the young man saw that I left some of my food and brought me a take away container. Will be back for sure. Well done guys See less

I come here on a regular basis for a coffee and some niblles. Also have had a dinner and an a breakfast recently. The food and service are of good quality but think the menu is very traditional and does need a bit of an update in the choices that are offered. See less

Highly recommend :) We ate 4 different meals from the lunch menu, the choices, presentation, and flavours were varied, interesting and showed attention to detail, which we enjoyed very much. Living in rural Waimak we had not visited before. We met up with elderly family members on their travels so booked from a Google search. I was grateful and moved by the attention to our request on the booking notes. My Aunt has difficulty hearing, even with hearing aids, so I asked for a quiet table. Not only did they reserve a quiet table, they also turned down the sound in that area. I was touched by their consideration. All the waiting staff were friendly, helpful and kind. We dined and chatted for several hours, and I could not rate the staff higher for they way we were treated. So, food excellent, service even better :) It didn't occur to me to photograph our meals, so here is a photo of our cat yawning at me for spending time on the computer :) See less

Lovely food and lovely people. Korean chicken burger with fries are so crispy and the pretzel bap is amazing. The beef cheeks are also nice and the pies can be shared between two people. Three of us ordered one dish each and it was very filling and too big so asked for a takeaway box and they happily gave it to us. Don't want to food to go to waste. Next time will order one between two people if getting the pie, as it's those tall double-height pies. Best new year's eve dinner ever. See less

Food was delicious, staff friendly and the environment was nice, it was slightly pricey for what we got. This on the left is a roast veggie salad and it’s mostly lettuce, would have liked a bit more roast veggies otherwise was a nice experience. See less

This was my first time visiting the Pedal Pusher. The interior is very nicely set out. It seems as though they have two sections, one for families with children, which gave my partner and I some quiet time. The food itself is amazing too. We went for brunch and got the eggs bene and tiramisu pancakes. Highly recommend both! The presentation was lovely as well as the food. Highly recommend! See less
