a noisy cafe cum restaurant

very homely very welcoming and warm. The food offering was wholesome and generous. The ambiance was homely almost community friendly. Not as good as Avoca not as sophisticated but maybe thats an unfair comparison. lovely all the same

We expected tea and scones, but this far exceeded our expectations. Huge variety of desserts and main courses. Since we had a light breakfast we took advantage. My husband had corned beef, something we only eat for St. Patrick's Day. I had roasted chicken. Very flavorful and large portions.

Ordered a steak, the others had burgers of different types! Everything was beatiful and we were well looked after! They were low on types of drinks after st Patrick's day, but that's to be expected! The bar was very quiet with only locals drinkin in, however for the food quality and service alone will definately return
