very nice setting staff very friendly, husband requested a pepper sauce it was a plain gravy with a few peppercorns in it no pepper taste, very limited menu took 40mins for our meal to come out, only 6 others in the place, price, was a little expensive for the food that we got

My family and I went here for dinner and were left feeling full and content. The entrees (particularly the risotto balls, disco chips and sweeet potato fries) were our favourites & came in big servings. Definitely recommend a visit here - warm by the fire and inviting atmosphere.

This place came recommended on some blog for it's range of craft beers so we had to try it out. The place looks nice and cosy with a log cabin feel: there is a real woodfire and the staff is very friendly. We tried their beers (they had Fred on draft so 'try' is not really true) and had a... More

Lucky for us it was still happy hour, so... More

Enjoyed a great Saturday night dinner (best to make an advance booking) - excellent food, great and friendly service (thanks Jennifer!). Solo artist was playing that night which added to the relaxed and casual atmosphere - a warm and cosy place, perfect for escaping a cold winter's night.

There is a wide variety of food which catered for GF and vegetarians in our party. The prices for both food and wine was good and the staff were efficient and attentive, even... More
