Traditionally, this place has been a pit stop ever since I can remember when it was down the road (next to the BP). Was hoping for whitebait fritters but none on the menu. Just gone under new management but overall hasn't changed much since my last visit 3 years ago. Friendly staff, parking available and reasonable takeaway menu. Toilet facilities... More

We have eaten here on several occasions and definitely would go back for their beef or chicken burgers, and endless tea and coffee.

Sustanance only. Was told by a local they had good fried chicken which interested my wife. It was not good. I had tough lamb chops, which were hard to cut. Try someplace else rather than eating here

Pretty average pitstop in-between travels, the food is what you would expect, with similar pricing to elsewhere - Why do we stop here ? - We like the pies, there great

You'll pay $6.50 for a pie but it's practically two normal pies in one and the taste is pretty good well worth the stop if you like your pies!!

Family of 4 popped in for late lunch early dinner and we all ordered something different. Hamburger was good, Fried food a bit too greasy, but the nachos my daughter ordered made us swarm around her. Two thumbs up on the nachos! Bit of a diner feel, casual.

This place looks like a truck stop and you won't go there for the view but the food is well worth checking out. Besides fried food they have sandwiches etc plus really good meat pies and wonderful gateaux and small cakes .
