Easy-going-, delicious food

After moving to the area we struggled to find comfortable, affordable non-franchise restaurants to support. But were thrilled to discover the tin house, the chilli poppers are a MUST and the food and service really lovely.

This was one of the best meals I have had in a long time. The staff is polite and pleasant, the atmosphere is peaceful and alternative, the kitchen is clean. The fig preserve is exceptional. Nothing more left to desire: This was a perfect meal.

I've read some of the low rating reviews about the Tin House, and was a bit skeptical on our visit, but I can honestly tell you, it was one of the best experiences we've ever had. Great food, fantastic service, and a wonderfully warm atmosphere, all at a very reasonable price. We'll definitely be back.

The decor is odd and the service slow but the food is really good. The chicken cordon bleu is best. Steaks also excellent. Really good local vibe.

The Tin House is off the beaten track, but definitely worth a visit if you are in the neighbourhood. Service was friendly and the staff were very accommodating to our requests. The winter cold was kept in check by a fire in the hearth. Food was reasonably priced as was the wine, locally sourced, with an uncharacteristically small mark-up. Will... More

Had a nice meal. Service was friendly and attentive. Would have been nice if the owner or manager came to the table during the evening as it wasn't overly busy.

We had a lovely evening at The Tin House, great food and lovely host Dalene. Even something simple as a Greek Salad was so different to the ones we have had in the past. It was just perfect. The Filetsteaks were perfect and so enjoyable. Everything was well presented and very appetising. The cheese cake, which came highly recommended by... More
