I am organising a group of 22 people to Hunter Valley for a Wine Tour by bus- I have eaten at your restaurant and would love to take our Coomba Wine and Dine group here for lunch on the tour. Is there a particular bus tour company that you know goes to your place or is this flexible. The date would be 8 th September for lunch. Look forward to hearing back. Julie Henry - 0407539946.

For some reason, your request came to me (I posted a review on Trip Advisor). The phone number of the restaurant is +61 2 4930 7029. They should be able to help you with a bus company that can transport your group.

Some, but not a huge variety. Not being vegetarian myself I did not take much notice, but I am pretty sure there was only one in the entrees and one in mains.
