thoroughly enjoyed our evening listening to Scott graham perform here. Food was good, not a lot of vegetarian options. House wine choice was very good.

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
