We came here for a quick lunch before a local show. Range of food and quality was good. Kids enjoyed their fish & chips. Was pretty quiet for a Sunday. Not a bad thing with young kids!

We had our work Melbourne Cup lunch here. The food was really good - cold meat and salmon platters for entrees, steak or fish for mains. The service was good and there was a nice atmosphere in the restaurant. A really enjoyable lunch.
