Simple, Well priced tasty food. This is the perfect stop on a long trip with kids, great playhouses out the back. There's a nice range of cabinet foods, we got burgers that were tasty and came out quickly despite it being really busy.

Hi there, not a complete GF menu no, we have GF options on our main menu for around a third of the dishes and try to always have 2 GF options in the cabinet. Thank you for the enquiry and have a nice day.
