Visited for tea with my boyfriend. We both had the Nacho Chicken burger and they were amazing, so tasty, really well presented and a big portion size. The service from the staff was also excellent, we will definitely be back!

After a last minute decision to go here for lunch with my husband it was great to see the new menu and try the dishes. The menu is a little basic but they make up for it in the flavour and presentation. I'd prefer to see more on their webpages (even facebook) about their specials nights coming up, as you... More

On Canada independence day we visited this wonderful eating place and had one of the best meals made to perfection on a very busy day We had the best and most succulent ribs and the most helpful staff attending us. Overall a very good experience with a lovely atmosphere.

Our second visit here as there isn't much choice locally to eat on an evening. The food was still of a poor standard. The steak was very tough :( service was better this time though. It seems the grumpy waitress has left. Can't see us going back though.

As we understood the place had just changed owners, we had an evening meal with friends, shared the ostrich, kangaroo and veal steak, which were all done to perfection. The sweet, which we had crumble and custard and chocolate fudge cake were very nice too. We will definitely dine there again

Stopped here for a business lunch when visiting clients and the monster burger is well named. It's rare a portion size tests me but I was unable to finish. The burger was of very high quality as well. My colleague had carbonara which she said was excellent. Blue moon on draught. What's not to like!

Thank benmilesbc
