This place is closed now. Shame as we liked it and I have been there 3 times and always had a good meal. No notification to say it is closed - even the phone rings but no answer!

Just what a weary traveler needed. Beer and wine and rest tired legs. Cosy atmosphere with average service. No food available when I went in.

We found this restaurant via Trip Advisor and I recommend this venue if you are in the area. Celebrating a Family reunion the restaurant helped us have a great time. The food was very good as was the service - Thanks

I booked a table for a pre-theater supper on 5th September but just had an email saying it is closed until further notice. Think it must have closed down. Have re-booked elsewhere.

The food here is excellent quality and perfectly cooked. Service polite and upbeat. Nice laid back atmosphere The portions were on the small side. You will need to order side dishes. I will return but will order a starter next time

We were tired travellers and were warmly greeted by the host. Loved the NZ specialty ciders they offered and the atmosphere. Would come back for a meal.

Had a sirlon steak, bernaise, mashed potato, green salad and a creme brulee for a desert. I would have liked the bernaise to have more of a taste and a little more of it. Maximum price compared to quality.
