Three of us enjoyed our steaks. All cooked differently and done to perfection. Washed down with a few beers whilst watching the rugby. Followed by a vibrant, talented band of musicians. All round great night.

Fantastic if you would like something a little bit special even if you are traveling with children. Great kids menu. The adults menu was delicious too. The fire was on so it was nice and cozy. Everything was excellent.

From the view, to the service, to the meals, I highly rate it. I have dined here a number of times and also choose it as our wedding reception venue in 2013. I can not say enough how helpful they were, Kelly is a star!! They are very accommodating and nothing is too hard. I will return again and again... More
