Wow! I don’t usually write reviews, but this is the most delightful spot - gorgeous setting, great service and THE most divine scotch fillet with caramelised onions on mushroom and blue cheese risotto. Perfectly cooked and beautifully tender.

Family dinner to celebrate a birthday. Great food, great service, great pricing and great atmosphere. We asked for a table near the open fire and we were positioned right beside it. Just loved the whole experience. Definitely will be back.

My partner and I ate here sometime ago now but couldnt really fault it. We had great food, service and believe this was great value for money. In fact we can't wait to return to try out other dishes. :)
