Nothing to look at from the outside but meals were sensational, cooked to perfection, huge portions & great menu range.
We can recommend the Duck Spring Rolls & both of us enjoyed Steaks & verges/salad.
It is air conditioned or you can fine on their covered in deck. Alcoholic beverages available & staff were very friendly.
Prices were mid range but certainly something on the menu to suit everyone.

This is the 2nd time we have had the privilege of visiting this venue. Last time back in 2014. This time for my daughter Kate's Birthday celebrations. We loved it then and we loved it again last night. Very little has changed over the years in particular the setting, the warm welcome, great service and above all the quality of the food on offer. The menu itself is extremely vast giving so much variety from which to choose (includes kids meals) - prices too are very reasonable. We had 12 at our table and it is fair to say everyone very much enjoyed their meal. My partner and I shared Peking Duck Pancakes for entree (absolutely done to perfection/the duck was so tender - delicious) then I had from The Smokehouse Pork Ribs 500gm in smokey barbecue sauce with chips and coleslaw - Ribs so tender with plenty of meat incredibly delicious. My partner had the Chicken Parma with chips & salad from the Classic Pub Meal menu (she loved it). Drinks at reasonable prices including beer, apple cider off tap. Special for all of February is Guinness by the glass etc - for me I had a pint at $10 very cheap. All in all a great night. By the time we left, the place was really buzzing. Most tables were taken. Ample parking out front. Zig Zag Ramp up to the entrance so would be wheelchair accessible. Highly recommended. Try it you wont be disappointed.

Three of us went for casual lunch in the Yarra Valley and were greeted by young, friendly & very attentive staff. We shared entrees that were fresh and very tasty then all three main meals arrived beautifully presented, cooked perfectly and full of flavour. Pricing for food & drink very acceptable... we’ll be back

I visited this place with my friends on Sunday afternoon and it was buzzing! Lots of packed tables with smiles all around. The service was amazing for how busy it was, I would highly recommend the garlic cheese with balsamic glaze pizza to snack on. The pizza bases were thin, crisp and packed full of flavour. They have some cool beers on tap like furphy, or amazing wines from around the area. Honest and humble establishment, a true destination.

We visited this place last night for dinner. Staff were friendly and service was fine. The meals for the price were average,all our plates were bulked up with chips , salad and rice which looked like an easy way to make it a large serve. Extensive drink menu and nice wine list.

Hi Judytripper, whilst I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your meals entirely, it is fine line between providing great value meals and not being excessive. We do take your comments seriously and are always looking to improve our offering, we are pleased to read you enjoyed our beverage menu. Thanks again for your honest appraisal of our venue, best regards Kristina.
