We wandered in here on a day trip to arriwtown from Queenstown and decided to sit in back by the open fire, sample a few wines and have a really nice cheeseboard. The staff could not have been more helpful!

We really enjoyed our lunch here last week. The minestrone soup was excellent and the house made pasta with thyme and mushrooms was delicious. We did not order from the wine list but the selection seemed extensive.
