Tasty gourmet burgers in buzzy suburban bar...

We had a bit of a shock arriving at this bar after walking some way from the town centre. We arrived at what looked like a building site. Thankfully a small sign told us that the Village was still open, leading us into a side road behind the construction work. Thankfully, once inside the pub... read more

I did go and have dinner here but really I would recommend it only if you want to go out and have drinks. Food was passible however seriously you can find a better venue for a meal than this one. It is really a bar scene venue.

The wooden picnic tables make... More

Really enjoyed hanging out here for the afternoon, we started off by sitting undercover outside in the beer garden but the acoustics are terrible. There was a small xmas party also undercover and we couldn't bear the noise so we moved to a different area and it was heaps better. The food and service really good too.

No longer the natural beauty that it used to be!! Menu has been significantly reduced to fast food, no longer can you get those yummy mussel bowls from the 'garden menu' rather chips, calamari, pizza etc. Disappointing! The bistro is closed until 15th of Jan 2016!! The venue used to have a lovely picnic style spot, under the tree that... More

We were looking for a meal close to our hotel and found this. We were most impressed with the quality of the food (the steak special was delicious) and the atmosphere sitting outside was fantastic.
