We were a group of 8 that went on Melbourne cup eve. We arrived later than the normal eating time around 8.30pm and only a few people were finishing off their meals. We were attended to by a very pleasant staff member. The food was well prepared and was served promptly. There is a wide selection of drinks available both... More

Ordered the Beef Scallopini which was not a huge serve but divine, served with potatoes, wilted vegetables and the most amazing sauce. Service was great, helpful but not pushy, nothing was too much trouble, great atmosphere. Loved the antique light display in the dinning room.

On Sunday we had friends visiting, my husband ordered tacos (main meal) two measly little tacos came out that would barely manage to be the size of an entree. My goats cheese tart, well I am embarrassed for them, it was something... More

Wednesday is the best night, great value and excellent service. Make sure you book as it is very popular. On other nights, the beer is great and the meals are excellent.

This is great for lunch or tea. The venue is relaxing and chilled. The staff are friendly. The meals are fabulous and reasonably quick. Highly recommend their burgers! Great location too. We've also enjoy many nights listening to movie judicial and dancing the night away.

Our local - not great for meals, from our perspective, but a good atmosphere for a Sunday or after work drink and snacks
