Excellent food and menu selection and affordable priced. The staff were friendly and enthusiastic. And the layout of the bar/restaurant was large with different areas to suit everyone - undercover outdoor seating with a huge fireplace, indoors restaurant, bar and pool table +

We had a dinner at this restaurant during a recent stay. Staff were nice and welcoming and very attentive. Menu had a good selection to suit most palates and the wine and beer list was also quite good. Roaring open fire added to the appeal. Prices of meals were reasonable considering the location and quantities were very generous. A great place to go for a relaxed meal in a warm inviting atmosphere.

Right from walking through the door, we felt a great vibe and friendly atmosphere. The menu was extensive and catered to all the different tastes for our family of six (2 teens, 2 uni students). We all enjoyed our meals, drinks, cocktails & happy hour drinks. Service was fun and fast and also helpful for my gluten free requirements. Definitely recommend!
