We waited hour and half for our meal. Surprized that the mains only had meat no garnish (they were not cheap)

We had lunch at the winery and it was nice. The food was good although the menu was quite limited.the staff were accommodating in allowing a change in two of the mains. All in all the food and service were good. The restaurant is very nice and in a good location.

Lunch was booked at 1pm, for 6 our orders were taken around 1:30 and food was brought to table about 2:10pm. My cider was barely cold, waitresses were continually apologising saying that they were busy. We finished our first course at 2:40pm, did not bother with desert. Management should make sure enough staff are provided to give a satisfactory service.... More

Went there for a bite of lunch. I had read a review in the paper and cut out the picture of the bottle to remind me that hubby wanted to take me there. We arrived just as a couple of buses were about to leave, so they had a crowd of tourists leaving and a wedding reception later. Not the... More

The venue is nice, its just plain and simple, however the grounds are quite something, lovely views over the vines etc. They really have made the place look quite inviting.
