We had a beautiful meal here recently on a Friday night. We were seated quickly and given plently of time to choose our dishes for the evening.The waitress recommended the specials which didn't disappoint, the hand picked wild mushroom soup was perfect. Both of our mains were delicious with big portions, so big in fact that we didn't have room to sample the desserts. The small gift to take home was a nice touch. We will be back!

The bakery in this restaurant is amazing in itself. We came with a group of 8 and had small children so we were pleased that we sat in a room just for us. The chef came to our table to confirm our order and make suggestions as we had someone with food allergies. We were very pleased with the selections. The food was really great. Everyone enjoyed it. We all enjoyed something from the bakery for dessert and even took some muffins home for breakfast the next day. Stop in and enjoy a lovely meal. You won’t be disappointed. The only thing I struggled with is since the staff do not work for tips they are not as attentive with drink refills. While I was drinking a beer, I had to get up and ask for another. They could make more $ with refills if they would make sure to ask. This is just a difference from American restaurants where their job is to up- sell and earn tips for service.

Delicious, fresh food, yummy baked goods and a friendly staff make this restaurant completely worth the short drive off the motorway to check out the town.

We stayed here at the weekend, hidden gem away from the hustle and bustle of the city but still within a short driving distance to all the west has to offer...the food was delicious great menu and dessert to die for...the staff were so friendly and very professional..the lodge is a new part of the barracks the room was very stylish and fresh...loved the little tray of fresh cakes on the side locker...we will definitely go back..
