Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Used to find this a good cafe. So what has happened. Maybe covid related. Seemed sufficient staff but I gave up waiting for my take away order and walked out though I had paid cash. Sad.

Orderd a ‘vegie’ pizza. Heap of diced veggies dumped on glorified pita bread. Worst pizza ever. Partners schnitzel was huge but burnt.

We had a hamburger and a chicken Parma with chips and salad, the sizes were huge but the hamburger was drowned in an awful tasting barbecue sauce and the chicken Parma was bland and had no flavour at all. Coffee was good but beware when...ordering a large mug you only get a large cup. Not very impressed, won’t be back.More

we have had several meals at this place and they have all been terrific and excellent. they are not expensive and the food is fresh, good size and excellent all round. some live music on the weekends makes the place. with winter upon us we...found the place a little cold and insufficent heating in the place. they have a wood fire,but not doing much and could do with a bit more wood and pumping out some heat.More

Just had lunch at this fab place today. You feel at home as soon as you walk in the door. The food was fantastic, pizza’s, nice thin base and really delicious! Their egg and bacon with American mustard, baguettes, yum! Coffee, great! This place was...a real winner for us today, so cozy with the wood fired pizza oven going and when it’s real cold, open fire what more can you ask for. A real relaxed vibe. Looking forward to coming on a Friday/Saturday night for some live music. Very welcoming owners. Another great place not far from home. 😀More

I enjoyed my meal very much. I had Quiche and salad, the quiche was huge and tasted homemade. I told them I didn't like a spinach leave type salad, but the old fashioned one with iceberg lettuce, they didn't have iceberg, but made the salad...for me with Cos lettuce, the staff were just so obliging and helpful. I would definitely recommend this café.More

We enjoyed a delicious meal, while listening to some local live music. Our 2 year old was entertained with the toy tub provided and the space was suitable for him to play. We really enjoyed our meal and the staff were friendly. We will definitely...go back, and have done so since for a cuppa and cake during the day since too!More

Waited 15 mins for a take away coffee!! Customer Service is disappointing. Noone smiles or welcomes you at all! They convey that serving you is an effort. Owners are lazy and have been for years. SMILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I dined here for lunch the other day with a friend for the first time and was looking forward to it after a little online research. I won't be in a rush to return. I ate the hash stack and was disappointed. Hash browns were...out of a packet and the tomato relish had an odd flavour. The cafe has a smokey smell to it owing to the wood heater that wasn't running at the time of my visit. Customer service was blah. Very slow to clear our table. Overall, it was ok.More
