Being vegetarian it's hard to find a place that makes just as much effort for everyone needs and taste but this hit the mark. The cauliflower steaks was lovely and super tasty .We will be back soon.

We thought this place was closed from the front driving past, so we drove around the back into the shopping car park & so glad we did. This pub has a classy dining room serving excellent pub food, generous portions & taste go hand in...hand. We shared an entree of prawns in an extremely lightly battered spicy season with a small bed of salad 8 prawns $17 from memory, very nice & for our main we did a pizza half Greek lamb & tzaki & 1/2 the hot spicy one again it’s actual name escapes me, but both were delightful, the service was attentive a swift & also friendly. We would & will definitely return. Thank you 👍, we also had 4 beers in total $72 😎More

We visited this restaurant recently on a Tuesday evening and was surprised at how busy it was. It’s obviously a secret amongst locals because it wasn’t too long before we realised why it was so popular. The customer service from all staff was exemplary, I...couldn’t fault it. They all were so friendly pleasant and it wasn’t forced either, they just obviously are a great time who love their job. Then the food, this was tasty and there is a variety to choose from. I had the beef cheek which was tender and flavourful, my partner had the beef rendang which he loved. We also had some bread to start which was tasty. I wanted dessert but the meals were too filling unfortunately so we settled for coffee. The setting is pleasant with ample parking and the best part was no loud music so we could hear each other and the atmosphere was great with many families and friends all chatting to each other in a warm setting without having to yell at each other over loud music which is often hard to find in these places. I highly recommend a visit.More

Delicious food and excellent service! Greeted with a smile on arrival, great drinks list, extensive menu (catering for all diets). All the meals coming out looked quite large - our party enjoyed the seafood pappardelle with fresh chili (fresh and yum), chicken galantine (delicious) and...salmon fillet (to die for) followed by an espresso coffee and a port. Whilst the menu is a little more expensive than the average hotel, the food and service is WAY above average! Highly recommend. Thanks for a very enjoyable dining experience!More

We enjoyed our lunch here. The decor is so well done, The food was delicious but not perfect but having said that, we will come back again. I had the whole fish which was well cooked but the batter was so hard. Previously, I have...had a whole fish cooked with batter which was so light yet crunchy. I suppose I am comparing the two. My husband's lambs fry and bacon was nice but not enough bacon. We do recommend coming here and checking it out for yourself.More

Staff very attentive and efficient, comfortable venue but that’s where it ends. The food was terrible the scotch steak was overcooked, tough and tasteless, vegetables overcooked and tepid. The seafood pasta was mostly dry pasta very little seafood or sauce. Greek lamb salad was mostly...salad, fish was passable.More
