The beer and the wine were standard fare provided by their suppliers. The restaurant room was blind-... More

Great food, prices appear to be a little on the high side, but this is balanced by good quality & quite substantial meal sizes. Lucky they have doggy bags. Great friendly staff make for a pleasant experience.

If you are after large filling meals this is the place for you. The ice cream and berry bar is divine for either berry ice creams or yoghurt and berry cones. Its a family friendly place with great facilities and playgrounds for kids. The art adorning the walls is fun.
