We often go to the Woolshed Cafe and Bar,we like to catch up with friends and find this the ideal spot to meet. We find Gavin to be a great host and he always goes out of his way to make sure we enjoy our meals.

Nice place to drop in and have morning or afternoon tea or lunch. Has a small garden seating area out the back which is lovely on a sunny day. Nice food.

Despite being very busy for Mothers Day the breakfast meals came out very quickly. The portions were a very good size and well priced too. The views are lovely and the crafts available to purchase are interesting.
