A step up from your typical "pub" meal; Table 48 incorporates good cuisine, fresh produce with a diverse menu. All this in a pleasant atmosphere severed by attentive staff. If ordering any of there steaks, remember, good,well cooked, fresh food can take a while to prepare, but guaranteed, its worth the wait.

I had booked 2 weeks in advance for 10 people for 12.15 PM and advised them that of the 10, seven would be in wheelchairs. I was advised that there was no problem and they would seat us upstairs and they had a lift. On the day we had booked, a got a SMS to check that the booking was going ahead and a replied with Y as requested. When we arrived no one knew we were coming. After setting upstairs we were advised we could go upstairs. It took a while for our drinks order to be taken. When these arrived which by now was about 1.00 PM they took our meal orders. The meals arrived 40 minutes later. So apology or explanation for the long delay. Very disappointing.

Cool atmosphere, obviously sports themed, TV's in the booths. Food is good, burgers and parma's delicious. There are also specials each night, Tuesday's is steak night $20 for a porterhouse is pretty good. Service is quick and friendly and the meals came out super quick.

My young family dined here at 5:30pm on a Saturday night when on holiday. We scored a booth (plenty of room at that time of the day) and the kids loved having our own tv there to watch the commonwealth games (can be any channel). The kids burger was delicious and my son enjoyed his nuggets. My half size Parma was plenty large enough and my husband enjoyed his burger. Fast attentive service
