We were greeted at the door by a young lady and our table was in The Courtyard and we had lovely heaters above. We decided on the breakfast burger, eggs and bacon... More

I reviewed The Fiddler early last year and I must admit it seems to have got worse. There is really nothing for lunch you can buy for under $20. The salads are all $16-$19. There are a few burgers for $19.My chicken, leak and mushroom pie was $22 and not very nice.I needed a microscope to find the 2 tiny... More

We visit with our family almost weekly and the tall guy at the front door is in our opinion is a major reason we keep coming back. He is always very friendly - helpful and goes out of his way to make us feel welcome.

My wife and I went here for a niece's birthday and although the Fiddler looks reasonably nice it is a sprawling place so do ask if you are meeting people anywhere. That said, the ambiance is slightly welcoming and there are options to get a nice secluded spot if so inclined. The food on the other hand was over-priced and... More
