Rainy day pick-up

Five of us enjoyed lunch here to celebrate a birthday. When booking we had asked if we could be seated by the fire which we were. Nice that they had made a note to accommodate our request. All enjoyed the fish and chips, a few had sides of prawns or scallops. Three big pieces of fish, chips, salad... read more

Saturday brunch time. Had the big one (Farmers Breakfast) - but it is not so big that you feel like it is too much. Well cooked, well presented and just the right amount. At $18.90 it is fair value.

My partner and I went here for a meal when coming across the restaurant by chance. The setting looks nothing much on the outside but is open plan and you can see the kegs, cooks and even people drying glasses and I love the transparency. Service was beyond good. Everything was streamlined yet you still felt like a person and... More

Yes, I know it is a chop house, but really in 2015 surely every restaurant should know how to deliver good meals to their vegetarian customers. I was with a large group of people who ordered steaks and that was great, but I got a very unsatisfactory reply to my request for a vegetarian option: "We will take the meat... More

My son's wedding reception was held upstairs in the Smith & McKenzie function room on Saturday night. We were very happy with the food provided for the buffet meal, we had chosen oysters, salmon, pork, beef and lamb with roast veges, salads and all the trimmings! Everything was superb including quantities were superb. The wait staff and bar staff were... More

We ate hear last night with friends. First time to this restaurant. Being a Saturday night it was very busy. Lovely staff, very attentive. Good choices on the menu, most of the mains were about $35.00. There are function areas upstairs and we were directly below one of them, where there was a wedding party. A little noisy at times,...

A great place for a night out, great atmosphere, excellent food and the staff are great too. Generous desserts after a delicious steak! Second time here and will return again!

Three of us went for dinner & we all had different steaks. All good & all cooked to our choices. Staff were friendly & wine matches just right. Have been several times & keep coming back as we know what to expect.
