Recommended by the motel where we were staying. Seemed to be a popular spot on a Saturday evening. Our meals were well cooked and ample - we both had a salt bush lamb rump with red wine jus. Woukd go there again.

If you want to enjoy lunch with value for money and a good selection of food choices and drinks then this is a good place to go. It is extremely popular so that tells a story. Indoor or outdoor seating it your choice?

Went here on a locals recommendation and while the vegetables could have been hotter, and the salad really needs some dressing, the lamb rump was delicious, tender and a substantial serving of nice thickly sliced meat, and the steak we ordered was also cooked as...More
