I went with a group of friends and the Indian was nice (good change from other cuisines in a small place). My friend had a steak which was not good quality.

Didn't eat from the Indian menu as we have enough of that at home and the food was gorgeous. Loved their take on prawn cocktail and the... More

Minuses: 3 of us had lamb which was beautiful but our mashed potato was stone cold, straight from a fridge and we had to return it to the kitchen. Pavlova dessert was not great, very little... More
