I haven’t been to this place for ages, but decided to meet up with friends for a few drinks and a meal. One of our group asked for something from the menu, and was told it wasnt available. He then asked for an alternative, and that wasnt available either. He settled for a simple burger and fries, and so did... More

Went as part of a small group. The place was not busy and we could hear each other talk which makes a pleasant change from a number of other establishments. Service was attentive although the waitress had to go and ask what the soup of the day was. My colleagues ordered meals while I ordered the bowl of wedges- very... More

The service was decidedly average; not responsive at all. Most of our party don't drink but are loud and we were cut off for being drunk! Grrrr. I think the staff wanted to go home. Food came out for our table over 25 minutes from start to end so some people had finished while others hadn't started. NOT RECOMMENDED.

Boring food of which they ran out of and forgot orders. Very poor service especially seeing the restaurant was not busy and there seemed to be plenty of staff working. A very limited wine list they must have a deal going with Jacobs Creek wines because that's about all they have. Don't bother going.

I have opened an account just to warn people NOT TO GO HERE We booked a table for a work do, there were 15 people at the table. The place was very quiet for a Friday night. The food was poor for the price, frozen reheated entrees, meals took 15 to 20 minutes from the first main meal serviced to... More

I had the Flintstone Ribeye. It was great! There was 2-3 other mains that sounded just as tempting, that I will return just to try them. The Chicken gourmet burger, the Pork'n Prawns, the stuffed chicken breasts, and spinach salad with warm goat cheese, pear and reduced red wine vinaigrette - with a choice of chicken, beef or salmon -...

Four of us enjoyed a lovely lunch here. Service was quick and pleasant. We each had different dishes, mine being gluten free and we all really enjoyed our meals. I thought the menu gave a great amount to chose from and the wait for our meal was reasonable. While it was a very quite time to go the pleasant environment... More
