Hadn't heard of this place but was looking online and it was nearby so I thought I'd give it a try. Service was friendly and on key, the waitresses were busy but went out of their way to make us feel welcome and tend to our needs. Amazing chefs and great service, love the pork belly and sticky date pudding!

Been here a few times and was disappointed on our last visit. One meal was completely missed and had to be re-ordered, a kids meal with chicken nuggets had a fish bite in it (just as well there were no allergies), one steak and jus was cold while the potatoes were hot and another steak meal just luke warm. Not much of an apology for the bad service although the missed meal ended up being complimentary and another kids meal arrived to replace the one that by then had been eaten minus the fish bite. Not too sure if I would visit here again.

We sat down an ordered a bottle of Sav and three glasses, but ended up with three glasses of Sav. We then ordered our dinner, and an entree was missed from the order. We did get an apology and we said to hold our mains until the entree and been eaten and wanted a little time before mains. Not to be they arrived as soon as the entree plate was cleared.
We then ordered a bottle of Sav and ended up with a Chardonnay instead. They did take it back.
The food was very average, all a bit Faulty Towers.

We have always driven past this eaterie on our way to other places. It looks like a big log cabin.
Our fairly large familly group was sat outside which was warm and comfortable.
We had a range of different entre's and main meals. Everyone really enjoyed the food. The prices were reasonable.
One HUGE added bonus is a dedicated room for young kids to play.It has an entry gate so the littlies are in a safe enviroment and can't get out.
