We went back with some friends from overseas who wanted to have a look inside and were pleasantly surprised. The food and service were great, a huge change after our first visit almost 2 years ago. Congratulations, keep it up.

We ate here on a Friday night without booking and had a 45 min wait for our meals. We had one of the venison pizzas and the venison burgers. The pizza was a bit strange, but the burger was good. Both meals were huge.
