This is a small cafe, and the only stop in town, but the view was peaceful, the service was friendly, and the lunch was perfectly fine. I saw no problems here at all. I thought the standards met were quite good, especially given the lack of competition.

It was a lovely day to sit outside and enjoy the sun over great food and a wine / beer. The staff were friendly and engaging and had good knowledge on walks in the area. Want to return.

A cafe / restaurant that has been on this site for some time and has accumulated a bit of history with an interesting collection of photographs on display that is worth looking at. These cover the early days of the railway and various gold & coal mining and even oil exploration enterprises over the last 100 years or so around the local area.

This said the food is OK if not exciting and would not be regarded as cheap. However, in the winter, there are not a lot of people around so perhaps one should be grateful for the opportunity to share a meal and a drink with friends in a warm and peaceful environment. The establishment is currently run by a couple that are not so young and appear to have the business for sale as they are probably looking forward to retirement.

We had a meal here and my husband had a great steak very tender. I was a bit disappointed with my meal. I had the smoked salmon which I found just to salty especially when the rest of the meal the vegetables were wrapped in bacon, more salt and other vegetables in pastry which the salmon is in also. Would have like vegetables my themselves. Expensive prices as well.

Very pricey - no free refills on coffee. Can order from menu or have pastries from buffet line.
