I wasn't impressed by my lunch, Schnitzel was really hard, chips were pretty gross. The veges appeared to be reheated and went cold within a minute or two

We stopped in for lunch in the bar yesterday for a quick catch up and were very happy with both the food and service. The salt and pepper squid was lovely and the staff were very friendly. Looking forward to our next visit.
