“Unique experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

We had heard about the barra and chips served at the distillery for lunch so decided to give it a go. A unique shop from where you can taste their selections of rum that are made on the site. Friendly staff there to help with making your rum decision. We had the barra and chips and to me it didn't live up to expectation. The meal was very well presented with a nice dressing on the salad and some well cooked chips. The fish was beautifully cooked but it really lacked taste. The chocolate rum cake had also been highly recommended and it really lived up to it's reputation, it was absolutely beautiful. Forget the fish and chips, just get a double serve of the cake.

“Great lunch and experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Mature aged couple who had heard good Recommendations re the lunches. As well as trying the tasting plate of rums/liqueurs we enjoyed a lovely fresh lunch at very reasonable prices. Worth the visit in conjunction with the SANDALWOOD shop close by and IVANHOE CROSSING.

“Friendly people, great rum and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

It feels like an old west saloon when you walk in and there is a lot of historical information about the area and the distillery. The tastings and the cakes are amazing!

“Something different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Nicely set up as a big "tin" barn of a place with plenty of character. A few souvenirs available and rum tasting. Rum not to my personal taste as found it a bit harsh and rather expensive (apparently aussie taxes). That said the rum cake scored 10/10 and is well reccommended! Beware that the building construction kills mobile telephone reception.

“Welcome to the wild west”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

This place was great. It was like visiting a bar in a western movie! It had a great atmosphere. We shared lunch with friends, mine was a light meal of barramundi and pumpkin salad - yum. Well worth the visit for lunch.
