We were treated to the new goat company and their upgraded facilities. The lunch was the main affair getting the special from the previous day. Kids have separate menu that suited our pocket. Loved it so much decided to have my 40th there!

I had heard about the Goatshed and as we would be in the area reserved a table for lunch. I had the lamb and my husband had the pie. Mine was a little cold and consequently a bit greasy. The helpings though were enormous. Staff were friendly

Staff is friendly and service is good. Love sitting outside as it is very relaxing. Food is good and the platters to share is nice for couples. They are also child friendly and the goats provide a nice activity for children.
