Small petite setting in large open field estate. Reservation ahead a must. Lacks the appropriate recognition for such a worthwhile experience. Staff are friendly and well polished. Price is sensible, and not too extravagant. Broad selection and desserts are unmissable.

The staff at Amanda's are always friendly and helpfull. food is always well presented with a wide range for all tastes. Fresh beread rolls are a special treat. Reasonable selection of wines but unfortunatley no "stickys". Wheelchair friendly - but a little trickey.
