“Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Atmosphere and the staff were amazing as was the service - the food presentation was that of a fine dining restaurant. There were four of us there on a Sunday night and we all commented on the amount of veg that came with our steak - 1 piece of broccolini and bok choy And a very very small amount of mash- steak was amazing but the pepper sauce way too runny and lacked flavour. I would love to go back and have a better experience regarding the quantity if food.

“Great for a large group. Empty plates”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

We have been 3 times now to the revamped restaurant. Great atmosphere for a huge space, love the quirky touches. The Stone grill is a must. Seafood and steak both. Chowder broth not my fav but lots of seafood. Two in our group had the seafood platter for two! Looks incredible. Cold stone ice cream a treat as well and huge portion. Share between 4!

“Warm cosy atmosphere and great food and service.”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

My husband and I arrived unannounced and although busy, quickly accommodated us. We had 2 beautiful chicken dishes with wine and dessert. The food was memorable, and the service was excellent. We will return.

We had a later dinner booking of 7:30. The wait staff were incredibly attentive, drinks arrived promptly followed by out entrees.
All three courses were superb. The only minor disappointment was that the pork belly had the crackling removed and replaced with bacon. The flavors however were superb and it was perfectly cooked.

“Great restaurant!”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

My partner and I made a booking for a Thursday night at 6pm. We received friendly service from the moment we arrived to the moment we left! Atmosphere was lovely, so many quirky things to look at and even with quite a few people in the restaurant it was surprisingly quiet.

Extensive menu with so many delicious options! 'Cataract bread' was a great entrée however the 'Crispy potato skins' were a bit over cooked. My partner had the 'pie of the day' for main, HUGE serve and he thoroughly enjoyed. I chose the 'Frenched Chicken' which was again a large serve and tasted great!

Overall a great experience and would highly recommend!
