A great little place for a Sunday lunch and judging by the crowd, it is quite popular. A good idea to book in order to get a table. There was a singer who was great however if conversation is what you are after, perhaps ask for a table further away. We all had a wonderful meal and will be returning... More

I love the beer and cider range! I tried them all and can't wait to go back, found the staff and the owner to be unfriendly. But I haven't had a meal there so I can't comment on quality or service for food.

Just had a lovely lunch for Mothers Day with three generations in tow. Everyone had a great afternoon. Great food, wine and music. Kids ran around outside whilst the adults enjoyed the warmth and ambience. Will definitely go again :)

Cold and draughty - there's a difference between rustic and tatty! Needs TLC! Below average food - over priced. We had duck with tinned flavourless cherries on a bed of pumpkin with cumin/Indian spices!!! It just didn't work as a dish at all. Scallops were smothered with soy sauce, and pretty flavourless - at least they weren't over cooked. There... More

Very disappointed with $16.50 for a trio of very ordinary dips! Not house made surely? & $14.00!! For glass of wine $14.00???? Nice wine but that's $30 for not much.

I took my elderly parent and daughter here for a lunchtime meal on a Saturday afternoon. There was some bloke singing and playing a guitar, he wasn't too bad. There was also a 30th party going on outside. We had our main course, everything was good until food was starting to be served for the party. From this point the... More

My friends and I had lunch at this winery. It had nice food and really great beer. Wine was too expensive to buy. Very relaxing with some live music in the background. I found the service to be a little slow, so my recommendation is if you plan to buy some drinks get as many as you can because it... More

The food here is wonderful but a bit pricey ... Which is okay, but the $5 wine Tasting fee , which is non refundable with purchase is a bit rich! Wines, beers etc okay, but old decor lacks character.

We arranged a family get-together in August 2013 and had a table for 14 of us where we could see the jazz band that played at lunch time. Food was good and atmosphere ideal for children who could get up during the afternoon and go outside and play safely in the large garden.
