Strongly recommended for families with young... More

Energetic new chef and manager are bringing new life to this restaurant situated in one of the most beautiful spots in Bonnievale. The menu still has all the trusty favourites, with some exciting new additions. Open most evenings and worth a visit if you can't be bothered to cook!

Great steaks and great value for money. We arrived just after sunset, sat at a table at the window and watched the value changing colour. Lovely.

The view of the golf course and ponds were gorgeous.We had a seat on the outside deck, to better admire the view.the service was good and the food delicious. i can especially recommend the steak and calamari. They have added a farm stall with local products to the restaurant and sports bar.
