Had to go to Raglan so decided to make a day of it. Lunch was at The Shack, looked busy and attractive so walked in. Asked straight away what we would like either menu or cabinet so decided on the menu and sat outside. First an old fashioned milk bottle of water was delivered to our table with the menu,... More

My partner and I came here for brunch on a Sunday and it was delicious. I got a veggie dish and he got pork. Both were great and you can even take a treat to go. Plenty of gluten free and vegan options as well.

A very wet easter day, the town was alot more crowded than expected. A wait for a spare table due to the numbers, once seated service was great considering the numbers. Wife had a spaghetti dish and I a fish one. Both well presented and well cooked. Service was fast and well done drinks were also on time and served... More

We have been regular fans of The Shack over the years but have not been here for a while. Easter weekend outing in fairly average weather. The Shack is always busy and today was no different. We chose two vegetarian options. Darling had corn and chickpea fritters. Good size and went very well with the chipotle mayo. Nice greens and... More
