How can I Make / Change or Cancel a Booking?

If you’d like to make a booking – please jump online. This system updates constantly with new spots. If you need to change or cancel you’re booking – you can do so via the link provided in your confirmation text. Click on ‘Manage Reservation’ to cancel (cancellation fees may apply – see below) or Send Message to tell us stuff

How do I account for our kids or guests with special needs?
All children over 1 year old should be counted in your booking party number. Please let us know if you will require a high chair. If you can let us know about other kids or individuals with special needs in your group, add it to the notes. It will help us find the best spot for you and your group.
How long will we have at the table?

During busy periods, all tables have seating limits of 1 hour 30 minutes for parties of up to 4; 1 hour 45 minutes for parties of 5-6, and 2 hours for parties of 7+. If you would like more time, let us know when you arrive and we’ll do our best.

I’ve got a big group!

Parties of 10+ will be required to dine from our Happy as a Pig feasting menu (see our menu).

Why am I being seated next to people I don’t know?
Traditional BBQ is served on big, share tables amongst friends and family. Smaller groups are often seated together across one of our large, wooden tables. You also may be seated on a table by yourself and if you have a preference either way, please let us know in your booking notes – we’ll do our best to accommodate.
Can we sit near the kids area?
When booking, be on the lookout for ‘Family Dining’. This booking will put your group right next to our kid’s Mini Red Gum BBQ play area. They are really popular spots so if you’re unable to find a booking in this area, let us know your preference in your reservation notes and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
Can I bring my dog?

We love dogs! But not in the restaurant, unfortunately. We are unable to accommodate your furry friends in either our inside or outdoor dining spaces.

Can I sit outside?

Our outdoor area is weather dependent and cannot be pre-booked. Please make a note on your booking if you would prefer an outdoor table and we will do our best to accommodate. 

What can I expect to spend?

Our per person spend is around $50 – this is for our guests who get a selection of all the stuff. If you are working on a budget, let your server know and they’ll help tailor your menu. Please note – there are weekend surcharges of 10% that apply to all bookings and a 15% Public Holiday surcharge. 

What is the difference between Standard & High Top seating?

High Top Seating refers to backless, bar stool seating and is generally not suitable for elderly people, small children or groups requiring highchairs. Standard Dining is our regular bench or chair style seating. .
