“Nice food and outdoor setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Food was lovely in a great spot but the waitress was quiet inexperienced. It was her after school job and lack of experience and confidence showed. Was fairly pricey all things considered.

“Lovely outdoors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Nice outdoor area sheltered by the breeze, great service and a good menu - great meals were available outside the 'standard' hours for lunch. Highly recommended.

“Excellent for meat eaters”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

We had two mains here, venison and sirloin steak. The accompanying vegetables were average at best, but the meat cuts were cooked to absolute perfection.

Service is friendly and swift, and there is often live music.
Price is average (although we got a spectacular deal luckily), but well worth a visit.
