Stopped in for dinner on a Monday night while working in the area and had a fantastic lamb shank for dinner. Staff were great and the $25 early bird meals are good.

Ate here last week, for lunch, with friends. Nice decor, comfortable chairs. Service was good, as was the food. Wine was reasonably priced. Really enjoyed the duck spring rolls with chocolate chilli sauce. The calamari was very tender. and the gnocchi was enjoyable. Recommended.

We have just got back from 3 weeks touring England and on arriving home lunched at Red Peppa and it is still the best food, value, service and ambience you can find. You are always made welcome.

Friday night with a group of eight. Wine and food orders taken promptly .The fillet steaks were aged and cooked as ordered ,gnocchi was light and well sauced,barramundi tasty.. Restaurant full of very noisy hipsters which made conversation impossible.
