“Coffee stop”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

Very few cafe's are open on a Saturday afternoon in Gore but when out walking we found Howl at the Moon. Other folk had the same idea - some were groups - obviously after playing sports.
There was a range of hot food available - like wedges, & chips, but we only wanted a coffee. Haven't been in for some time but they have an interesting menu. There is a bar area to sit & relax in with high seating or comfortable lounge chairs. And the dining area has a range of grouped seating which is moveable.
Coffee was good & takeaways are available, Newspapers & magazines are also available to read

“Always a favorite”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

To spite long waits and slow service from a small kitchen on weekends or event days it is stil a favorite. They are very accomidating in dealing with my food allergies. Lamb dishes are my favorite. Interesting menus for a small town. Be sure to check out the false corrigugated iron wall paper in the restroom entry....it looks real. A remodel has cut down some of the noise coming from the bar area which is especially loud on Friday night.

“No service ”
Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

Too busy, told to find our selves a table then no one bothered to serve us. Looked at us but just kept walking pass. Ended up leaving after sitting there for 20mins without having our orders taken or being acknowledge. Do not recommend going there!
