Visited the restaurant while on conference as part of the dinner agenda. Really enjoyable to sip on sundowners while watching the sunset. The viewing deck is a must and the staff were friendly and attentive. The lamb shank off the bone was wholesome and tasty....More

Mice restaurant that was under construction when we were there- sure it will be better when it's finished. Delicious burgers and milkshakes. Enjoyed some time with the resident cat. Dogs were allowed and were given a bowl of water

Very nice place away from the hassle and bustle of the everyday restaurants. Their food and service is very good. They are currently busy to revamp the venue, but it would be nice with more shade one they are done

Ginger & Thyme is still being renovated but that shouyldn't prevent you from visiting them. Mountain bikers will enjoy the trials, birders the birds and the food isn't too shabby either. No licence yet so take your own.

We only had a coffee and a milkshake here so it is unfair to rate the restaurant. The view from the viewing deck was however 5 star stuff. The property in general looked a bit tired (stuck in the 1970s or 80s).More
