Food from our kitchen is the real deal. Handmade, homemade, from scratch with ingredients from our organic garden out the back and the country's top-end suppliers, your meals are made with care and class by our talented chefs. We have daily specials and a menu that changes seasonally, but you can always rely on the pub classics that have made us famous.


The kitchen serves food all day, which can be enjoyed in the spacious bar with its high-vaulted ceilings, or outside in the beer garden. The outdoor fireplace keeps winter cosy and the deck is ideal for summer lounging.


There are vegetarian and gluten-free options and a children’s menu.
