We were a group of 30 on a day bus trip. We had booked for lunch at the 1841 Bar and Restaurant in Johnsonville and they were excellent. They had given us a list of all their meals and even asked, once we had phoned through our order a week or so beforehand, how the people who ordered their steak... More

My wife and I had just arrived in town and the 1841 was close to where we were staying. Nice pub atmosphere. Service was very friendly and helpful. I had the chicken curry and my wife had the fish of the day. Both came promptly and were excellent. We highly recommend the 1841.

This bar/ restaurant makes an effort to provide good consistent food at affordable prices. The dishes are well presented. There are a number of areas in which to sit and dine. I am gluten intolerant and there were options for me to choose.

Really enjoyed our meals. The menu has plenty of choice and the meals were large and tasty. The wait staff were prompt and friendly. Being quiz night we were glad we had booked as there wasn't a spare table available.

First time customer to this Pub. Was surprised at just how busy this establishment was at Saturday lunchtime. Great outdoor seating and tables available in a semi-closed off courtyard. Walk into the main restaurant section, long bar just about the full length of the place and with a games room (pokies) out to one side albeit inconspicuous. Surrounding are pleasant,... More

If you are in Johnsonville you do not have many choices for bars/ restaurants. Luckily 1841 is excellent. They are always busy, have friendly staff and good service. Kids get a pack that includes coloring in stuff and sticker and activity sheets, great for keeping kids entertained. They have locally themed dishes and the food is good. There are also... More

I have never gone to 1841 specifically for dinner, but ended up having dinner there a few times while being there for drinks. Service is always excellent and there is always plenty of people on. Food is normally good, though I have had one average meal there.

Family and friends birthday meal. Disappointing food, wine and service. Overpriced and really under delivered. Quite a rip off for a local. Better value to order pizzas at home actually.
