The layout of the entry area is very poor. People wanting to pay & leave are mixed in with people wanting to order food together with people arriving. No one helping people to tables and therefore some people just wandering aroiund looking for empty tables. We had a booking so after waiting around for 5 minutes, we grabbed a passing... More

Our last visit was a year ago, and back then we were disappointed with both quality and quantity. Today we were very impressed with the service, the quality, and the quantity of the food. The only thing we weren't totally happy with, was that our main course was served while we were still eating our entree.

We always come here when the grandchildren are visiting because they have their own dining area and their own menu and puzzles and pencils in a little bag. There is a large menu to choose from and I try something different each time and haven't been disappointed The prices are very reasonable.

This is not a gourmet place but the good is tasty and serving is big. The environment is friendly with nice service and to make me happy really nice cafe that I was a surprise. We visited on a Sunday morning the town was closed and that was the only place we found. Looking at Tripadvisor we were not expecting... More

Food was nice and decent portions it was fairly busy there but the food was served quickly considering. Found the service at the bar was very slow. One person serving for a medium line of customers. He also would chat away to other people rather than concentrate on minimising the queue waiting.

Crunchy batter & the chips are crisp with fluffy inside. Yum. We are a little prejudiced as we get a discount card for our birthdays but also go at other times. Good service, reasonable prices, large menu range with plenty of choices for family. plenty of room. A nice meal that won't break the bank. Oh yes, the staff smile... More

Good food, reasonable price, friendly staff and things for the kids to do. Typical family resturant. Have to order at bar but no dramas with that. Very busy night but the staff seemed to cope well.

This restaurant was fine. Nothing special, but it was hot fresh food, didn't break the bank and was very clean. Refreshing to see a reasonable number of vegetarian options too. Plenty of seating, very friendly staff and very quick service.
