Beautiful spot right on the Hastings River. The staff are very helpful and courteous and the meals delicious. There's a pool also if you're up for a swim.

We took the lentil and chickpea burger, and the chicken burger. Both quite acceptable, without pushing any culinary limits. Enjoyable without flourish. The house white which we took to accompany the meal, on the other hand, was really rather good - as was the service...More
