Had a lovely night here. Great place for the night. Quiet and great sitting on banks of Murray watching the ferry and the world go by. Look forward to visiting again.

We called in after crossing on the ferry and were pleasantly surprised how lovely the restaurant/cafe was with great coffee and hot chocolate. It's a must to visit and relax with a coffee in front of the open fire or overlooking the river.

Cute place with the river behind. Burger was tasty and generous serving size. Walk through the old courthouse and see the history of the local area.
