This is truly amazing! Wonderful location, wonderful staff, wonderful food and wonderful wine. The portion of ribs was out of this world and tasted great and Rusty served us a superb Pinot Noir. Definitely recommended.

Went for lunch and enjoyed the platter for two and the Riesling a good combination. Service friendly and place suddenly became busy so owner helped out, loved the contrast! Left quite full and talked to some other guests for a while. Well worth the trip. A hidden secret is the separate bar Fox and Grapes an old hop kiln remodelled... More

My daughter and I had a platter for two which was awesome with a great variety of local food, nicely presented. The surroundings are also great. The staff gave prompt service and explained that as they were busy a main would take a little longer but as we chose a platter they were very prompt with this.
