The inside is very nice, good clean decor and plenty of space. We had the set menu where we choose 2 starters and 2 mains... read more

The staff are lovely and always helpful. We have been for family dinners and work celebrations also. The service is always good, even for large parties. Quiet at... More

Nice food, nice choice of drinks however service a little slow, but that may have been due to timing of the meals required ?? I would go again !

It is totally worth the drive out to this restaurant. We have eaten here for years and it is consistently amazing food. The set menu is the most economic way of having a good taste of everything. The tea smoked chicken and chi yum king prawns are things that dreams are made of.
