    Food was generous and delicious. Once I understood the ordering system the service was very good considering how busy they were. The staff were friendly and efficient. My only issue was being offered outside seating the heater was not very good but being offered a blanket for our legs was appreciated.

    We had a very enjoyable lunch. Staff were very attentive but also happy to wait as our friends arrived a considerable time after us. We ordered a variety of meals between us and all found them to be delicious. The portions were huge though so we couldn’t finish everything. We were surprised that the parma (a Mexican parma special) didn’t come with salad. Ambience a little busy as staff went back and forth and not much space between tables. But not noisy; we had no problem holding a conversation. Overall a great experience and we will return.

    Food and atmosphere was great. Big portions and everyone's meals were yummy. Would recommend the Beef and Guinness Pot Pie. Had to wait for service but once they came they were quick and efficient. Great place to come on a cold Winters day after a nice drive.

    Lovely place, great service staff who looked after us very well. Kid friendly. Food was average, not terrible but not as good as previous visits. Small problem with one of the meals that was handled well by service staff with a replacement meal and taken off the bill.

    We celebrated my mothers birthday last night and everyone had a brilliant time. The food is fantastic with very generous portions. The pork belly was melt in your mouth good. The Parmas were spectacular and my kids devoured their burgers. The cheese garlic bread is so good we got a double serve. Despite being busy the service was warm, friendly and helpful. This is a standout gastro pub with a very cosy ambiance. Great drinks selection too!

    Special occasion wasn’t recognized. Put at a table that was uncomfortable and I am heavily pregnant and dining area wasn’t full. Husband ordered mulled wine…. It was microwaved and had a dodge piece of lime shoved in it instead of advertised warm orange. If it wasn’t for the good food it would have been a complete disappointment.

    I understand that these places are struggling for staff but notification of delay would be a good thing. We eat there often and enjoy the food and staff are very attentive. Also the Sunday roast was missing probably due to staff shortage sadly. All the best guys! Our family will continue to support your business. Regards Terry

    This is such a cute place in the bush with rustic atmosphere and hearty food. Unfortunately though we had a lunch booking for 3pm, (phoned ahead and booked online a week before,) we didn’t know they were closing at 5pm for a private function and we had to be off the deck by 4pm so they could set up. And were told that they couldn’t put wood on the fire inside as they were letting it go out. The staff were lovely though super stressed as not enough hands to make it a relaxing visit. I’d given it another try but hope we don’t encounter the same chaos next time.
