Staff, polite and helpful, service a little slow but I have been to Wild Oak several times before and service has been good. Food very appropriate for Christmas in July 3 courses $40 plus wine. Roasted pork belly done a treat, Christmas pudding moist.and flavoursome.

Was close to where we were staying. Good choice of food. Two chose salmon which they said was great. I went for the kangaroo roast on confit. That was delish. The service was good. Worth visiting if you are around the area.

Food was excellent. Service was great. The only small fault was the airconditioning was not very cool.
