    Had the chicken Parma, absolutely delicious as always. Chicken was not overcooked and chips nice and crunchy. Not to mention the yummy garlic aoili !!

    First time we had been out there. Came out to have lunch and watch Gary play. Stood at the manned bar waiting whilst staff dried dishes and ignored us. Eventually we were seated and served. The bread was lovely however my Parma was dry and reheated and hard like boot leather. I used the sirated bread knife to cut through it. Then stood at the bar again where I was ignored by a pony tail haired man not even acknowledging that I was standing there. I eventually paid $75 for a poor meal and poor service. It was so noisy in the eating area we sat near the entertainment which was great. I work in hospitality and watched the wait staff walk past our empty glasses not collecting them for an hour. Absolutely rubbish service. Staff were busy but from where we were sitting watching the footy we could hear them swearing and complaining. Sorry Gary, will watch you elsewhere. Won’t be back and wasn’t worth the hour and 40 minute drive

    Was a really nice place, good atmosphere, food was tasty. Only suggestion would be to add more vegetarian main meals, only had one to choose from and sides.

    The chips on my meal were burnt and my medium cooked steak created a blood sauce overriding the pepper sauce I ordered

    Great meal. Everyone really enjoyed it and was smacking their lips at the end. We had snitzels and Parmas and pear crumble for dessert. Everything also came out nice and hot. Only downside is you have to flag the staff down for anything. Order, drinks etc. they are young and nice but not really attentive.

    We went because of the revamp, but the place did not look much different and the food was not good, there was not much choice, especially for a non-red meat person, the bar staff was slow

    Prior to the renovations This used to be a lovely little gem with great food. So disappointed with our recent visit, food portions were small, food was dry and overcooked, no cutlery, table was double booked.

    The Christmas roast and pudding we had was delicious, really good value for money! However the service was awful, we waited over an hour for one course. We weren’t even asked to place our order until almost 30 minutes of arriving. Seemed like a lot of waiter staff were just standing around wondering what to do! A shame because the food and ambience was very good.

    It's a great vibe, and the food is good...but the wait is *always* slow. Not just this visit, but previous one's, too If you know you're going to have a wait, just say so. But waiting 45 minutes for a parma and a couple of kid's meal while seated outside next to heaters is too long.

    Food was incredible!! We have eaten in the restaurant several times and the food has always been fantastic. This time we were in the bar section & chose from the bistro menu expecting it may have been more basic than the restaurant food. We were wrong!! Everything we had was so delicious. Can highly recommend the riblets & souffle, & the roasted brussels sprouts were to die for!!

    Awesome as always. Only issue was we could only book the bar area as it was busy, we didn’t realise at the time of booking but they have brought in a bar menu which is different to the dining menu, and my beloved barramundi isn’t on it. The staff were amazingly accommodating though so I didn’t miss out. But it would be good to know at time of booking that if you sit in the bar area the menu will be different.

    The food was good, service extremely poor. We had booked a table outside, which was lovely. However after being given menus and asking our wait staff to come back in a few mins so we could look at the menu first, we waited for over 45 mins and actually had to remind the staff that we were outside and to come and take our order. To which we were told they had forgotten about us and laughed it off. Then had to wait over half an hour for our food to be brought out. Again asking for an update on where the food was. Service leaves a lot to be desired. I understanding that you were busy, however might pay to keep your customers updated and to not be forgotten.

    Very enjoyable Sunday afternoon lunch and live music was extremely entertaining. Staff were friendly and appropriately attentive. The only downside was the length of time to wait for our mains, around 45 mins. However, the live music and quality of the food made up for it. Would definitely go back!
