We went to meet up old school friends, had a long table of about 20 people, the service, food , atmosphere and surroundings give it a 10. Just a wonderful place to visit, eat, drink and relax.

It's probably a little late to mention it now, but I still think The Goatshed at Fairview deserves a mention for the excellent service I got there in January 2017. It was a scathing hot day and we were travelling - on route to the...More
