We arrived early and were well looked after and made welcome. Staff know their business well. Moving upstairs to a bubbles welcome and canapes it was delightful and the canapes just yum! Then followed by a beautifully and truly tasteful set menu. The weather was...awful but the service and food easily made the evening shine.More

We ate here yesterday. The staff were amazing from beginning to end but the meal was a complete rip off. We were given a three course set menu (including a small bottle of Prosecco each) with no price on it. The starter was just bread...and oil/ butter. The mains (choice of 3) and desserts (choice of 2) were ok. We were very shocked to then get a bill for $250 ($125 per head). Absolutely not worth anywhere close to that - better off getting a taxi into town, having a nice meal and having an extra $100 in your pocket.More

Not a big menu but nice tastes and innovative. House wine by the glass was a nice drop. Very attentive service. Nice to see bread rolls and butter served before the meal. Were met by the Manager in the car park and taken to the...dining room, which was a nice touch.More

Small hotel - small restaurant. But superb food beautifully prepared and served. The menu is quite brief, but the variety is good. Highly recommend the yellow fin tuna.
