We had pre ordered our food but unfortunately some items were not available and a few of our party had to re order. Food arrived looking well presented, I ordered the prosciutto... More

Such a little gem of a place. Sat outside in the courtyard and enjoyed bubbles & mixed starters to share. Everything was just divine.

I hosted some potential clients here on 16th December - great food, excellent value for money. Waiting staff were exceptionally well versed and offered really warm, friendly and professional service. Nice selection of ales/beers - we didn't order any wine. The selection of steak was excellent and we all ordered different meals with each of us extremely happy with our... More

Dined here last Saturday night. The restaurant was full, but we managed to find a table at the last minute thanks to the friendly waiter. My partner & I had both had steaks and both were delicious. Cooked perfectly, with enough side dishes to feed an army! Will be back whenever we get the chance.

Booked from Interstate as we wanted to watch the footy over lunch. Staff very accommodating and made sure we had a table in front of telly near the bar. Food choices excellent from either bar menu or restaurant. Plenty of different beers to choose from and a most enjoyable day out. Pity about the footy result though.

Had lunch here with a couple of friends last week - all very impressed with their meals. All had different items off the menu - lambs fry, steak, chicken and lamb - no one was disappointed. Service was friendly and efficient and the wine list was great! On the pricey side but you get what you pay for! Love coming... More

I've been to the wayside a couple of times in 2013 and each time had a great lunch with good food & service. I booked for a table of 8 as I had some interstate guests in town from Sydney & Gold Coast and they were staying on city road so thought this would be an easy walk to get... More
