Hi, I can only say that the whole experience was great. We like to go to the Mawson Club as it is not in the tacky decor club feel like all clubs in Canberra. Your staff at the reception could not be better, in fact they are exceptional. If I had a restaurant in Canberra I would be poaching them because of their manner and appearance. Very clean and the special for that night of Saddle and Paddle was very good. Regards Denise Traynor

I was very grateful that staff added an extra table to cater for our last-minute additional guests. Everyone really enjoyed their meals, except for one lady who found a blob of plastic in her beef lasagne. However, when she made staff aware of this, there was no hesitation in offering her a refund. Overall, I would recommend this venue.

We have not been to the Mawson Club for a long time due to previous experience. Last week we made a return and were most impressed with the menu for the weekly specials, very value for money!

Our reserved table ended up not being reserved as people had eaten there before us & staff mistakenly cleared the reserved sign with the dishes. I suggest the reserved sign should have the actual booking time on it in future to stop this from happening.

We come regularly and love it. Value for money we can afford to take the family for dinner which is great. We have noticed that the chairs definitely need cleaning in the dining room and at busy times the bar sometimes doesn’t have enough staff but these are just minor things and I’ve only commented on them because you have asked me . Keep up the great work we love it at the Mawson club.

We all ordered the “saddle and paddle” Thursday special. I was with a guest who is very fussy about her steak. She wanted her steak done “blue” (as in double rare) and she said that she got it just the way she wanted. So we were pretty impressed and she was very happy.

Hi ! I do not normally go to clubs and was hesitant about the Mawson experience. But, the receptionist warmed the mood on a very cold night, and was extremely helpful in getting us in. The ‘atmosphere’ of the club is hardly intimate, and the open spaces exacerbate that perception; the tables in the ‘eating’ space suggest a dormitory atmosphere rather than a ‘club’ feel, but the service staff are excellent and accommodating. The food seems well priced; the variety on offer is likely to please most - except, perhaps, vegans...a curious minority who apparently no longer thing pollination by bees is ok...so enough said in that score. The ‘fillet’ steak I had was more like shoe leather, and appeared to be more like rump...in more ways than one; the side salad was a little on the almost missing in action side, although my partner’s vegan salad was perfectly prepared to order...a point of relief, and satisfaction. Overall, I will return, alone; the price point is almost better than having to prepare and cook at home. Shame about the pokies being present, but one can’t have everything... Cheers

Unfortunately once again all our table's meals were not delivered at the same time, despite us all ordering together. One meal came so late that the rest of us were finished. Staff did not explain why or offer a refund or voucher for use another time - very disappointing.
