I was surprised how busy it was and popular with families - great vibe. Staff are extremely helpful and lovely couldn’t be more helpful or obliging. Menu has something on it to suit most people’s tastes.

Pork knuckle was very dry, most of the crackle was inedible. In contrast, the raspberry and white chocolate waffle dessert was delicious, we wanted more! Our waiter was delightfully friendly, prompt and attentive. Best service I've experienced in the coastal restaurants where others tend to be too casual and slow.

I had the Pulled beef cheek ragout pasta. The beef was in chunks, not pulled at all, the pasta was overcooked & there was too much parmesan cheese. I didn't finish it. Some others had the Mushroom Pizza but it was light on mushrooms and would have more aptly been called Cheese pizza with mushroom. We also ordered the dessert platter which had a vanilla slice with soggy pastry & some other sweet treats but it wasn't anything to rave about. The place is very noisy with the sheer number of people they fit in there and we were just a table away from the live performer who was fairly average and too loud. We had trouble talking to one another and my baby granddaughter found it overwhelming. Certainly not a relaxing and enjoyable time.

Could do with a bit of cleaning - cutlery and plastic glasses were very dirty and lots of rubbish on the floor underneath our table from previous usage. Overall, thank you for the great experience and friendly staff

Nice lunch inside a wonderful venue with a great view of the wine vats and barrels which adds to the charm.
