“Just relaxing”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Walking past and thought it had nice atmosphere as it was a Friday nite there was music and a singer as a background which made it a pleasant evening.

“Twice in one day”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Lunch was so good that we went back in the evening and the young lady who served us had a lovely personality and gave us a heads up on the local attractions etc. For lunch I had lambs fry and bacon and it was done usually as it wasn't in a sauce but rather lightly fried and very tasty. It was a shame I had to share my desert but my husband did share his cheese board. We were lucky and there was a local band in the evening which played the more mature music which recreated a very enjoyable atmosphere.

“Request not to be seated by the bar!!”
Reviewed 31 August 2013 via mobile

We were seated by the bar which meant listening to drunkards & loud crowds who were only there to drink & not eat!! Not a pleasant experience!! Then we sat for 20 minutes before our orders were taken & drinks offered. My food was overall delicious & of good value although the cost of my main alone was $35 & dessert $16 of which I thought were a little overpriced. The waiter whom recommended the wine that complimented my meal was excellent. My sister was very disappointed with both her main the fish dish had no flavour & she was underwhelmed by her peach & bread pudding. We probably will not be visiting again.

“Good as it has been”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

Cold night and close enough to the heat pump to be warm. Good for a steak cooked to perfection and the other's risotto looked pretty nice too. Bread and butter pudding for dessert with icecream a nice finish. Reliable restaurant. Staff helpful, attentive
