“better than i thought it would be...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

I thought this would be average by the first look and it was even less hopeful when they'd lost our booking. It was never going to be a problem though as the place was empty for Sunday Lunch.
Once organised the service was quick, pleasant and spot on. The food was pretty good too, not cheap at all, in fact "up there" with better known places. I can recommend the risotto and everyone who had steaks loved them and cleaned the plates up. The flathead looked pretty good too. Ice cream for dessert, three types and delicious! others had various things and all got solid pass mark. A pleasant afternoon, you could do much worse.
