This place has changed hands since our last visit. Unfortunately the new owners (Asian) have no idea how to cook European food. I ordered the "All Day Breakfast". It was obvious that the chef had sourced his ingredients from the cheapest supplier - not even up to takeaway standard. Everything was drenched in some really cheap foul tasting oil -... More

I went there with friends on Saturday night as my friend got some vouchers. The service was very good but the food was disappointing. First they run out of ginger beer as early as 6.30pm. As for the food, for entrée I had chicken livers on bruschetta and it was O'K. For the main I had lamb salad, and the... More

My friends & I had a couple of vouchers for a dinner at Village Bar & Restaurant. There were not a lot of customers on Sunday, even by the time we left. We picked our entrées, mains and desserts which were included in the vouchers and ordered our drinks separately. For the entrées, chicken livers on bruschetta were excellent, but... More

It was a set menu with good choices and we had both decided we would like the "slow cooked pork belly" bad luck not available. I had the lamb salad. I... More

The beer selection is excellent and there is a buzz about the place, though if you are after a quieter drink, there is a small back room. The main problem is that they close on the dot at 10.30 on weekdays. The manager has stated that this is mainly due to the complaints of an awkward neighbour.
