I really don't mind queuing to place an order for food but this was totally unorganised not helped by unhelpful staff. Once it arrived food was only average so disappointed as venue had been recommended to us. Will not be back.More

Perfectly located in the centre of Margaret River this place had a great vibe on a busy Saturday late afternoon / early evening. We only had a few drinks and sat outside. Despite being very busy it was still pretty quick getting served.
