After a visit with my husband and 2 kids we were all very happy with the restaurant. It was relaxed and family friendly with an enclosed playground for younger kids. The food was spectacular and by far better than we had expected. Definitely glad we chose to eat here and would come again if given the chance.

We had a wonderful evening here. The service was warm and friendly, the live music nice and as a parent of a toddler, it was awesome. We were able to watch our toddler have a ball and we actually got to eat a leisurely meal out because of the great kids play park area. The oysters were fresh, tasty and... More

Three year old son was in heaven: a troupe of kids and a secure playground without interfering parents. We were pretty wrapped too: decent sized portions that were as delicious as they were filling. Live band playing in the bar area... Great family night out.

This is a really interesting bar, to start with its very hard to know it exists even when nearby as it looks like part of the caravan park. The food and atmosphere is very good. They cater well for children and help make it a very special night for them. All of the waiters were great except for one who... More

Very kid friendly with a playground. With two young kids they opened the kitchen early for us which was so nice. We couldn't stay for dinner but the menu looked amazing. The kids food was delicious.
