    Not a good experience, house burger WS rubbish,no dressing just a slither of lettuce no crispy onions no salsa. We did complain and were brought cold onions and a little pot of salsa. To be fair they did not charge us for the meal but we’d rather have had nice food.

    Food was good. Service a little slow considering it was nearly empty. Slightly annoyed as had run out of some J20s and lollies. As it was school holidays thought they might have thought more stock would be needed

    On line booking was easy even for a dullard like me. Staff were friendly and helpful service was timed just about right a sufficient gap between starter and main course. Food was very good we both enjoyed our choices I had the bacon cheese burger my partner had the half rack of ribs and as I said both meals were excellent.

    It was our sons 30th birthday so it was an important family event. Very nice food and pleasant staff who also brought a cupcake to the table with a sparkler. Only small criticism was the delay in taking our order, about 20 mins after our arrival. This was a bit if a problem as we had very young children who got bored waiting. However the restaurant was full and ultimately we had a great time .

    We've eaten here and loved it ever since its opened but this visit and the one previous were not great experiences.. This time in particular, we were seated and had drinks order taken and after 30 minutes had to ask where they were, apparently "Mel was on her own and really busy" given this was the second time we'd received drinks 5 minutes after the food, I had limited sympathy. With the exception of one or two of the wait staff they looked like they just didn't care at all, sullen and had to ask several times for bill... I basically now won't go on a Sunday again, as they clearly can't cope with an only just over half full restaurant. Food was great, the kitchen made 5 meals before the bar could make 4 coffees and an apple juice ;-)
