Lovely place to check out. Pity meals and service has gone downhill.
As per everywhere portion sizes have dropped on all plates, but the price has lifted. Really do hope it improves.

Very popular and busy spot on the weekend with live music and a great vibe.
Personally didn't love the food and I wouldn't recommend for those with dietary requirements as there is little to no choice of what you are able to eat.
For the beef burger lover it's not a bad option.

We haven't been here for ages, so decided to go for lunch and try out the new menu.

We had a Deluxe Burger (not very big and probably not as good as we've had there previously) a Halloumi Salad (ok) Fries & a Parmy (yum!)

Burger, salad and fries came out super quick.

Lot's of dog's hair on the table.

Overall it was a pleasant enough experience.

Very average food. Nice setting. Service is the local kids doing their best. It’s a help yourself situation for soft drinks but we weren’t told that when ordering. Had chicken and waffles: very dry. Chips were too. Portion size not great.

Was charged a surcharge even though it wasn't a public holiday or even the weekend. Lemon lime and bitters $7.11 (used to be ~$6) and chicken tenders $12.69 when it should have been $12 according to the menu. Just tell me there's a surcharge instead of saying there "may be" one. And have a jolly good reason for charging when out of the ordinary.

Staff were super stressed out... so visible and it really affects the customer experience. Has lost its friendly vibe. Burgers are tiny compared to what they used to be. Menu has changed; less food, more expensive and smaller sizes.

Not nearly as good as it used to be.
