We arrived on a busy late afternoon without a reservation. The staff were friendly and welcoming with outside tables available... perfect on this lovely evening. The drinks were reasonably priced and wine list small, but a balanced selection. We tried a pizza, baked Brie and...Pear, blue cheese and walnut salad to share. The Brie was lovely and came tight crunchy bread, The salad was laden with prosciutto ( which was unexpected, but nice). Canned pears and crumbled, yellow, blue cheese on the salad were equally unexpected.. The pizza was nice enough. The restaurant was pumping and I checked out the meals as I walked through and the other guests all looked happy - we may have just ordered the wrong thing this nightMore

The efficiency of the staff & delivery time of our meals was impressive. Having a special option for a Seniors portion on all the main meal options is great. The roast pork was beautifully cooked. The Marguerita pizza nice. Good value for money size wise.

Food was not what I would have expected in the beautiful town of Geraldine. Meat, mashed potato and overcooked veges.

Always a good meal, good service and well priced. Can't beat the outdoor seating, such a great place to sit in the sun and enjoy a beer

It was a Sunday and lots of restaurants were not open. We were glad we found this Inn, which was very crowded outside as the weather was mild. We had a very nice waitress who served us with a smiley face. The whitebait was nicely...cooked and so was the roast pork. Both meals were generous, so we didn't have room to try the desserts. Highly recommended !!More
