Great garden area

Cozy garden area great even when it rains. The mussel and kumara chowder is spectacular, as were the shiitake mushrooms.

Lovely food, portion sizes just right. Wait staff excellent. Very quiet for a Friday night, but regular stream of customers arriving to pick up takeaway meals. What a great idea!

Wow best steak sandwiches - nicely cooked to my request of medium with very yummy blue cheese. My husband also thoroughly enjoyed his with mushrooms. I'd definitely visit here again.

Stopped here to get some brunch, wasn't feeling like a full meal so I ordered the Bacon Butty and my wife the Creamy Mushrooms on Toast. What arrived was far and away the most enjoyable Bacon Butty I have ever had the pleasure to consume. Focaccia bread toasted and a zingy tomato relish with Bacon that really was Bacon of... More

Stopped on our journey south for lunch. Very tasty food, great coffee and nice atmosphere. The large soup was enormous - enough for 2. Highly recommend.
