On Saturday my youngest son turned 7 years old.

On Thursday I thought I’d better contact the Moonee Beach Tavern and book a table and organise a party platter for the kids after haphazardly inviting a few friends to a casual celebration a couple weeks earlier.

Not only was the Tavern extremely accommodating to my last minute request to book a table for 18 people, they took my order for 3 pizzas and 3 jugs of drink without an issue.

We arrived, the table was ready and the Tavern was PACKED. I was surprised that for a winter’s night every single table inside and out was booked. Lots of birthday parties were on that night!

While there was a totally understandable 30 minute wait for the food, the kids pizzas were bought to us quite quickly, there was no wait at the bar and I was beyond impressed with the way the staff coped with the sheer amount of people. We were served in a timely and friendly manner and our food came out to us without any hiccups.

Best of all, my son LOVED it. The kids were entertained by the jumping castle, the kid’s room and the mini golf and the lovely Casey even made slime with the kids.

The adults all paid for their own food, you can see by the party menu below the kids platters are VERY reasonably priced so without a doubt I will be returning. I would LOVE to have every kid’s party here, it was so easy to organise and for one I was relaxed and enjoyed myself!

WELL DONE to the Moonee Tavern, we will be back. And there were some guests who had never been before and you’ve converted to big fans.

But most of all, thank you so much for making such a fantastic night for my little boy. You can see by his face below how happy you helped make him!
