Being a New Zealander, I don't usually give a tip, but our waiter looked after us so well, that he definitely deserved the tip we gave him. We all had lovely meals. I can recommend the white chocolate cheesecake for dessert.

Visited for our daughters engagement party, venue was private and very well laid out, food was excellent, well prepared and presented. Staff and service was outstanding from planning to completion as nothing was a problem for Kirsten and her team. They also went out of their way to accommodate guests personal requests. We would throughly recommend this venue to anyone... More

Large helpings and friendly staff are what made this memorable for me. I enjoyed the Roaring Meg wine to accompany my stuffed chicken breast, which was delicious. My friend had pork and scallops, which was also enjoyed. We didn't have room for dessert!
