we stayed in the accommodation anyway, so decided to eat here. the first night we had burgers and chips at $24 each. the burgers even thou well cooked where still juicy and tasty.
the second night we had the garlic bread to share (should be for 3-4 people, as a large portion)
and we shared and pizza. i was not let down by the food it was all great and tasted really great!
be careful as we had eyes bigger than our bellies but the portions where so big!!!
love the feel of the place to, really nice

You want food and good food? This place will feed you enough to last you 3 days!! Servings are HUGE! priced very well, tastes & presentation excellent, service from the staff also very good and the atmosphere with dim lights, two big log fires burning is a great setting just to relax!! For those campervan travellers this is advised as well, very nice private setting for each van tucked away in the rain Forrest and all amenities are there for you as well. Stayed the night and wish we had time for another. Thanks team we enjoyed it!!

The Monsoon platter was surprisingly enormous so we ate like kings whilst drinking NZ Sav Blanc on the couches by the fire. Our 3.5 yr old enjoyed watching the local backpackers play pool and they let him in on a few tricks so it was win win. Great night out :)

we were staying on site when the power went out in town and were directed here by reception with the promise of food and beer still being served, and they were not wrong! When the sun had gone down the lanterns and candles came out and made it a unique atmosphere! the guys behind the bar (girl and guy with a huge beard!) were awesome and kept us and others happy with happy faces and beer! We ate and although the whole menu wasnt on offer what we did have (couple of salads) was great and they only closed when they ran out of glasses! great job guys!
