Always great for a casual drink and dining!! Outdoor area is a little sun trap! They do really good platters and pizzas. Has a cosy nook with comfy seating. It's also a family friendly bar and restaurant.

Thank you Good Home - we were there for a family birthday and the restaurant made it that extra bit special by bringing out a birthday dessert for the birthday girl. We all thought it made the night a special occasion.

Went for a luncheon with 9 others but the meal was most disappointing. I had a grilled chicken burger $19.95 which consisted of a plain white burger bun, a small piece of overcooked dry grilled chicken, a fried egg and a lettuce leaf with mayo....More

Wow the good homes food has really gone down hill. Everything was less than mediocre, pizza terrible, chips over cooked, kids meals were gross. Bland, flavorless and rushed. Will not be returning for food that's for sure!More
