    Fabulous food and good portion size. Liked how you order from bar so large groups can pay as individuals. However need to offer Tea and coffee as we had 2 non drinkers who enjoyed everything but we would have all enjoyed a coffee at the end.

    It's a great spot tucked away down a long driveway and a view over a large grassed area and onto the vineyard. The pizza was delicious and the beers (Dark Ale) were just as good. our son had a great time playing with the farm dogs. We will be coming back as soon as we can.

    I am a regular and while the ambiance has changed under new ownership I will continue to return and recommend it to others . It was obvious immediately that the patronage has shifted dramatically to a younger demographic and this could perhaps deter some older clients, but from my point of view it is not a problem The crew running the show are bright and friendly and keep the atmosphere light Didn’t try the beers, but the wines were as good as ever

    Friendly staff, family run business. Good vibe with a DJ, kids playing, dogs wanting to play fetch. Some minor glitches on the day we visited including a power outage and running out of some wines, I'm sure they were both rare occurrences. They have recently branched into Gin, I'm keen to try their tasting paddle next time.

    On a public holiday and the service was excellent. We sat outdoors so the noise level wasn’t an issue. Delightful staff and the best pizza I have had. Ambience is rural and authentic.

    The pizzas are always good value. Only have a cheese/grazing board for a choice, but a rustic setting doesn’t need anything else. Sat inside due to wind where we were to be placed. Far too noisy inside on Easter Sunday. Staff friendly and attentive. The gorgeous “farm dog” entertained young children by playing soccer with a flat soccer ball. Nice picnic atmosphere outside. Great wines.

    It is always an enjoyable place to have a couple of glasses of wine and enjoy either their platters or pizza’s. The new look is great.
