“Highly recommend eating here!”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

We ate here this evening and was amazed at how delicious the food was! There are options for every type of diner, including ones who are looking for gluten free food without the crunchy-granola atmosphere. The owners are very knowledgable and friendly, and are always willing to share a story or two about the jail. I had the soup for a starter and followed with the tuna steak and a side of chips. Everything was perfectly done, and the gluten free chocolate brownie was delicious and didn't taste like I was eating specialty food! I definitely want to go back again!

“New concept”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

Called in for a meal on the opening night of the new dining format and have to say it should be a success.
All main courses come with choice of potato and you can add any veg or extras to your meal for additional cost, this is great if your not being old by your oldies to 'eat your veg or you're not having afters'!
The lamb shank was fab an the home made pies looked amazing.
Have to say that the waffles and ice cream were the best I've ever tasted - and I've consumed a few ;)
Returned next morning for a cream tea which was great.
Owners are amazing and always happy to stop and tell a story or two and fill you in on the jails history.
Only wish we'd had time to do the tour - that's for the next visit.

“Food was lovely”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

The food was lovely and reasonable. I had the chicken wrap, and James had the burger both delicious for the money and a nice filler before u go around the jail.
