If in Derwent Bridge this is THE dinner stop. It's probably the only one but doesn't take advantage of this. The two chefs produce food far beyond expectation. Quite exceptional.

It was a one of the excellent experience for me and my friends. We never experienced something like this in middle of nowhere. Really enjoyed pork belly dish. Missed out on chance to have a Sri Lankan curry dish bit disappointed about that. One of my friends had it and he loved the chicken curry. Hopefully I will come back... More

We were staying in the area, so we were told that this might have been a good option to go to with our family of 4. From the outside, the Hotel/Restaurant looks mediocre at best - and that should have been the first sign that we were not in for a good experience. The second sign was the fact that... More

A great spot to stop for a very good meal in front of a huge fire. Self contained RVs welcome to overnight on the car park. Only 2 km from The Wall artwork, a sculpture not to be missed. Or 5 km from Lake St Clair National Park Visitors Centre and camping/caravan park

Ate here for lunch and dinner when we stayed at the Pumphouse. Really great food not over the top expensive and well presented as well. The interior is really cool.

Not worth a stay. Only stopped to eat there because there is nothing else around, and food was below par. Looked the goods from the front but lacked soul.

This Lodge style hotel provides a friendly and welcoming atmosphere after a long days drive. With high ceilings, a warm fire and a forest vista to complement a 4 star meal, you'll enjoy your stop here. The menu is excellent; great value with a few quirky combinations (scallops with lychee and raspberry coulis?) but the quality and quantity is excellent.... More

This is our fave pit stop on the way to the West Coast. On our recent visit, we dropped in with our caravan and stayed overnight in the carpark for free. As usual, we had a great meal and although a little bit expensive - we love it because of the ambience and uniqueness of the place. Our small boys... More
