Sensational Sunday Lunch

Two couples for Thursday Steak and Merlot night. Our fellas had salt and pepper squid entrees and dessert of sticky date pudding. Meal was excellent and steaks were cooked to perfection as each had ordered their preference. Lovely and warm in the dining room. A beautiful venue and was a real treat .

We wanted something special for the last night of our holiday and this venue met most of our expectations. Despite being quiet on the night we were made to feel welcome and comfortable. Pre dinner drinks were taken in the very cosy bar area and set the tone. Despite a small menu selection each dish was creative and well presented.... More
