Food average- a little bit try hard rather than original. Steak was well cooked. Service is pretty average waited ages for desserts and then told after a 30 minute wait that the cheesecake was off because “the cook had tried it and it tasted bad’.

We enjoyed a superb lunch here - of Corn fritters and bacon. Great presentation, with a side salad; and topped with Sweet Chilli sauce - tantalizing! All served with a wonderful smile - and the coffee; with the marshmallows, was lovely.

Tucked away adjacent to the railway lines in National Park is the Station Café, we stopped off here on our way north. The fire was going to it was nice and cosy and the food which is made on site was truly delicious. I would recommend the scones with jam and cream. The staff were very friendly and great service.

When I was last here at the end of 2017 I found this an excellent place , good service great pies and an excellent selection although some items looked better than they were however I was so impressed I knew I would not pass by without calling again, July 2018 it was like I had gone to a different place , the service was hardly a step above non existent despite there being an equal number of staff as customers , a cup of coffee and a pie took 35 minutes to make the table and was very low quality when it arrived , a party of 6 was heard to make comment they had been waiting for over 45 mins , somehow this has been taken from a very good must visit establishment to a place to be avoided like the plague .
