We had my daughter’s 18th b’day yesterday (14th April) in the Tussocks Room and it was fantastic and the guests have raved about how amazing the food was and a big shout out to Kate our server for the day. Thanks to Olivia for helping me organise things for the day.
TINA WISE – 15th April 2018

Amazing Steak with creamy garlic sauce. The atmosphere was awesome with good music and friendly staff. All in all a great night out. The only thing was there was no surf and turf option (prawns and calamari) to have on the Steak, otherwise we agreed that the commercial would have been the place to be!
KAITLYN FROST – 16th March 2018

Had a weekend meal here, on Saturday. Meals were all done and on table in 30 minutes, fairly impressed with the service and staff. Food was good, excellent night all round.
HAZEL DRUMMOND – 11th March 2018

Great service, and delicious meals.
Large portions · Great food · Cosy atmosphere
