We dined with four for graduation dinner, so it was a busy night. The staff were attentive and helpful, the food was delicious, and we had an entertainment book voucher for one free main, of which they discounted the most expensive! Would definitely go again if we lived locally.

Restaurant was packed this night by the time we left. Husband ordered the Steak and initially not that impressed but by the end wasn't to bad. Scalloped potatoes had to much salt in them. I had the Veal and for what you paid it was a spit on the plate but most was tender and cooked just right. The staff... More

I come here several times a year on average. I find the staff friendly and helpful. The food is nice, albeit not cheap. Great atomosphere. On weekend nights they have a musician.

Great menu, something for all. Amazing sliders, beef brisket sandwich a little too saucy...needed a bib lol. Highly recommend the lamb salad! Extensive beer selection to wash it down with.

I went here last week on Thursday with a friend for dinner. We found one waiter in particular was amazing! He was there, but not too often, and was super nice and funny! However we did find the food wasn't that great. It wasn't bad but could've have been better. My friend had the pork belly (we are both lovers... More

Dined for a meal to celebrate a birthday. Service from our waitress for the first half of the meal was ok. Then our waitress changed and the 2nd girl was much more friendly. Food was good, however a hair in one of the main meals left us no longer wanting to stay for desert. I understand this happens sometimes, but... More

Went out for a meal and it was later than we realised. Stoped at Keystone and although they were not doing 'meals'the bar snacks were still avaliable. We had a barsnack and a drink each and were very happy with the food and the service.

Was very busy as rugby game on (got to see Graham Henry) decided to stay for meal. Entrees came or fairly quick but mains were delayed behind a large table but food was fantastic so would still recommend. Was very loud although this was a Friday night too.

Visited tonight with 3 other family members. All starters, mains and desserts beautiful. Staff very nice and friendly also. 3 great eating area options - intimate restaurant/bar area with tvs/outside the front. Good variety to suit all types of occasions. Will definitely go back.
