Beware. Huge portions and delicious to the extreme. Friendly service and very quick. Nothing but good to report on this place. Others have said it's expensive but I think it's reasonable.

The place is rundown, in need of a tidy up, sick wombat should not be on show, signs at the putt-putt fallen over, nails hanging out. Use some of the entry fee to fix the place up
