We only went for coffee and were pleasantly surprised that it was hot, and not lukewarm as seems to be the norm these days. Service was very good and the outlook very pleasant. Start for a nice walk around Throsby Creek.

Nice venue. You should be happy with that booking. Yacht Club just down the path is another nice venue for a group booking.
