We dropped past for lunch as we heard they had recently changed management, we sat out side and ordered the double rainbow salad and the satay baby squid, I also had a pint of Fresh Ale and a pint of Rice Lager. The meals were absolutely delicious ( and so were the beers) plus they were reasonably priced, I couldn't... More

Usually Margs river is strewn with breweries offering big meals, but we came across this tapas styled place where they would suggest the number of dishes your group needs. Alot of asian inspired food like cauliflower bhajji and gado gado. But the jalapeno poppers were a stand out and ended up ordering two plates.The beers were a bit unique but... More

Eaten here twice now and I love the Asian inspired menu. The restaurant is cost and warm with the open fire. Service is polite and attentive. We have had a taste of all the beers and our favourites are the Bao Bao and XPA. Really like the new cider! Will definitely come again.

It may be "off season" but I would have thought by walking through the door, someone would have been pleased to greet us; didn't happen, as they were more interested in their little gathering (possibly business discussion) than greeting clients. We were supporters of the previous owners and had only excellent things to say about it in all aspects. A... More

Probably the best meal we had over a four day food fest.The ribs,pork belly,green chicken skewers were stand outs.The stuffed Jalapeno has a kick but excellent . The food was a reasonable price although the beers were highly inflated.We got them back to normal prices as we were in a large group.Service was very good with friendly hard working staff.Although...

I took my kids here for lunch a couple of weeks ago. It was a rainy the last day of school holidays and the place was full. We opted to wait until a table became available. You can have a wine tasting while you wait or just have a seat in the wine room. About 15 mins later we were... More

We have not visited the Black Brewing Company since it has changed hands and its name. The beers were of a high standard, we didn't have a meal but they looked delicious. We shall return for a meal and enjoy the views of the lake.

We came her on our way home after lunch we didn't eat but grabbed some beer and sat out on the amazing deck that looks out over a lake. Great atmosphere, friendly staff. The menu looked delicious. Will definitely be coming back to try to the food

It was great to enjoy food other than the standard cafe fare - beautiful fresh Asian flavours, don't miss the pork belly. The kids were able to run around in the gardens and playground while we enjoyed the view.
