“Delicious”
Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Had a beautiful lunch here. Food was superb. Atmosphere was lovely. Milkshakes are served in milk bottles and their selection of wines was excellent.

“Great Atmosphere!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We had a great evening at this restaurant, the food was beautifully presented and very tasty! I would recommend the pork belly and duck-fat chips.
The service staff were attentive and very professional and to top it off presented my sister with a birthday dessert, we loved our evening and would recommend it for a special dinner out!

“Simple but nice meal”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

The service was great. I had the chicken salad from lunch that was very average but I strongly sugest the sticky date pudding for desert!!!!! A very nice desert! My brother had the open steak sandwich that looked delicious.
