A lovely view!! We had breakfast and order the farmhouse breakfast. No finess at all. Food just cooked good enough to fill you and it is where it stop. If you like and enjoy food not a place to go. The cappuccino was good.

Dutton's Cover restaurant needs a new chef urgently! Chicken schnitzel arrived burnt, dry, rubbery and stringy. Cheese sauce was a paste not a sauce. Nice setting though and staff pleasant, although too embarrassed to receive payment in person, our waiter sent someone else to present...More
