Sunday Lunch - what a great setting on a sunny afternoon sitting outside enjoying the weather. Service started a little slow & we thought 'oh no' then all of a sudden it went up ten notches & continued like that throughout the day. We opted for the six course tasting plate starting with the Kingfish with the signature chocolate dessert to end with - would have to say the Kangaroo with the black pudding was the standout dish although all six were brilliantly presented. You could not fault the delicious taste of each dish with a nice bottle of Pinot Noir to keep us happy! Thank You we will be back
Hi Ray, Thank you for dining with us on Sunday, I'll be sure to pass on your kind words to the team! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

As a group, we were limited to the tasting menu. Service was somewhat slow. Some found the portion-size small.
