“Tasty produce”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

The cheese tastings here are bigger then the tiny square you get at most places. Loved the cheese and we bought two blocks. Didn't feel pressure to purchase as in many other places. Sat out the back with an icecream, on a beautiful day.
Definitely recommend if you're driving near. Had lunch in Bicheno but wished we had waited until we were here, as the cafe smelt great and I regret not ordering the pie.

“Good place to stop for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

Nice cheese tasting, we bought some mature cheddar to take away with us. Good burger lunches except they fell apart in your hands. Not cheap but not expensive either, there's not much else around here to choose from. Nice to see the cows out the back.

“Holy Cow indeed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

We stopped here on our way up Bay of Fires, it was a hot day and we loved sitting outside under the shades watching the cows wandering. My husband and I shared a wonderful ploughman's lunch which was just as it should be, rustic, tasty and huge!
The ice creams are also worth trying, scrummy.
We were so full after our meal that we didn't try the cheeses but bought the mature cheddar to take with us, excellent!

“Unexpected surprise in the middle of nowhere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

After a free cheese tasting we had a nice lunch at one of the picnic tables overlooking the milking shed and paddocks. The icecream we had after lunch (pepper berry, leatherwood honey and vanilla bean flavours) was arguably the best we have ever eaten...and I think the lady serving us set a new world record for how much icecream could be crammed into a wafer cone. A professional operation with friendly staff and high quality produce in the middle of the bush. Not to be missed if you are in the area.

“Holy Cow!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

This place was recommended to us by a mate who had visited here before. I'm glad he did and I'm glad we took him up too.
Being on the edge of a large and productive dairy farm, it has a very nice rural flavour. Especially so when the large doors onto the deck were opened, bringing not just the outside into the building but also the wholesome aroma of mixed cow dung and mud. A wonderful earthy smell. The view while eating our meal was lovely and is a large part of this restaurants unique atmosphere.
The EXCELLENT food was brought to us by efficient folk who knew their stuff.
Although they only produce cheddars, the cheese tasting was a nice experience too.
I'd definitely stop here again next time I'm touring Tassie.
