We were taken out to lunch here, and not disappointed. The surroundings were pleasant, and the food was delicious. Can particularly recommend the Fish Chowder and the Kumara Salad.

Bad bad bad. Christmas dinner, yeah-rite. Lack of staff, lack of knowledge absolutely shocking. Kept being asked for food orders when they knew not everyone was there. People handed meals and coffees over table. Went to get service at bar and no one to be...More
