A good choice

Went here with a work colleague and enjoyed it. Had stone grill, dessert and a drink and it was excellent value for money. Only gave it a very good score as the service was a bit slow. It seemed only staffed out front by a bar tender and one waitress. Both were very nice but has a lot of... read more

Wanted a treat. Are new parents so can't go out for a meal. Very poor standard of food, we would have been better off getting Mc Donalds. Will not be back.

Had a $10 lunch at The Good Home. A great risotto with sundried tomato, aubergine & spinach. Tasty flavours. Service was good & acceptable coffees too. Great value. Nice ambience.

Lots of different spaces in this bar/restaurant. Try and get one of the warmer more homier spaces than the entry lobby. You order at the bar and it can take a while to be served. Food is nice and has reasonable portions.

After booking dining room then two days before finding out that our party (50) would be in the bar we negotiated to have the dining room after meals had been served (6.30pm) for our guests to arrive from 7pm. Arrived at 6.30 to finish setting up to find diners still waiting for their food to be delivered. Guests arriving had... More

Situated by a canal one block back from the waterfront this is a trendy well run bar/restaurant with very nice food. We enjoyed our eventing so much we came back the following morning for breakfast, where we sat outside on the balcony overlooking the canal. Very nice.

Setting good especially on a nice day. Not a great range of beers and ciders but that may be contractual, forced on them. Wine range good. Good food, but lots of nearby competition is as good - some better. If sunny weather book a table outside.
