Love the roast dinner nights in winter. Great value for 2 courses and very popular. Prompt and smiley service. Get there early not to miss out, but there is always the full menu to pick from.

Had lunch recently at Mr Grubbs with family. Ordered a few mains which we were happy with, but so disappointed with the margherita pizza. For a rather small Margherita Pizza we were charged $24.00. I really think it was rather overpriced.

Depending on what your looking for and how many are going. But yes if it's a casual dinner, you would need to book though. Not sure about the cake but their service is great so just give them a call.
