About Mr Punch Public House

Taking its name from one of the two main characters in Punch and Judy, a traditional puppet show that has its roots in Northern Europe, Mr Punch Public House has quickly become a local sensation. This watering hole and restaurant appeals to the nostalgic in all of us with its iconic walls covered in kitschy decor and antique signs, but most importantly, it’s the relaxed setting that allows guests to slow down and take it easy. All the bases are covered as far as alcohol goes with their selection of fine whiskies, beers, and cocktails, and the food is something special too, complete with sharing plates of international specialities from all corners of the world. The old-fashioned feeling you get at Mr Punch Public house – on Seah Street just steps from Bras Basah station and the National Library – is unlike anything else. Book today to snag your table.

3rd visit here, but this time on a quiet Friday lunch. I was the only diner, so everything was fast and nice. After having lunch, ordered a cod takeaway. The portion was small but understandable as Cod is expensive even for a small slice. Tasted really great!

Nice setup with attentive service. Food prices is a little high, but quality wise I feel it matches.

The Good: Attentive and friendly staff who took initiative to offer food recommendations. Interesting decor. Maine salad $28 - Generous serving of sweet lobster and balanced dressing. Barramundi $38 was fresh and served whole with minimal bones (served without sides though). Creme brûlée $12 was a surprise, served with mango ice cream. Rather big serving for dessert though, so take note it's good for sharing 2-3 pax. The Bad: Rather limited food menu. Disappointed that the prime steak $48 was unavailable. Most mains served without sides so food prices are a tad expensive. Spring chicken $26 was tasty but chicken legs slightly undercooked. Yam and sweet potato chips $8 were disappointing - oily and lack crisp and flavour. Dessert "Oops I served my ice cream" $12 - good concept and interesting food presentation. However earl grey mousse doesn't freeze well and texture was strange - "crystal-like and icy". It was also a rather huge serving. The ice cream cone was a bit soft and tasteless, wafer-like instead of biscuit crunch.

Went on a weekday night and it was quite quiet, so it's quite conducive to chat with friends. We went to the basement and quite like the decor. Food wise we ordered the mentaiko fries, chicken roulade, salmon and Angus beef. Chicken roulade is quite special, you don't get to see in often and it's the best dish. Salmon is fresh and nice. Angus beef is quite disappointing, the beef patty quality is underwhelming. Mentaiko is average bar snack standard. Service is good and regularly come up refill our glasses. Value for money if you have the entertainer app or burpple beyond.

Oliver the server was amazing. there was no table for 3 but only 2 and he made it happen just so we dont have to go back down. the rooftop was good but just a little warm, a little air ventilation would be great. the food was good too! we got all premains and the portions were huge. mentouka fries was my least favorite. please put the mentouka at the side and not on the fries just in case people dont fancy it (like me).

Warm, friendly and proactive staff who were on hand to help out with our requests from ketchup to dessert recommendations, and who immediately came to our table to replace the fork we dropped without our asking. Great food that satisfied both our palates and stomachs. Restaurant's walls were dotted with eye-catching vintage posters Food's a bit pricey hence, discounts and promos would be much appreciated :). Overall, we would definitely recommend Mr. Punch Public House both for a casual or special occasion dinner.

I was rather sad that there was no space available on the rooftop. The waiter (he could be new) looked really frazzled waiting on too many people at one go. Speed of food being served was okay but the speed of drinks being served was pretty slow. Could do better. Steak was bad too, especially for the price, but the other dishes were so awesome that they made up for it. :)

Service staff was really quick and friendly; made some decent recommendations as we went for the sharing platter in the form of the marmite squid, the tataki beef and the crispy fish skin, and then the steak to share among three people. Ended with dessert and all for a good price thanks to the smart offer.Will come back!
