A lovely setting with well presented tables and good views. The Fowles wines are excellent especially their shiraz. Service was good. Food was very good, we enjoyed the chicken breast with tasty chorizo and a bean ratatoullie. Prices were a bit high.

I always stop there for a coffee and their berry muffin...usually as a take away but sometimes have breakfast or brunch. Their wine is good but instead I usually take home some Chardonnay Jam or an assortment of their relishes / chutneys. Always friendly service.

We had breakfast here on Sunday and it was divine! So much food, fast service and it was delicious! I had bacon and eggs with mushrooms and the meal was huge. The coffee was just what we needed on a cold morning!
