Staying weekend in Oamaru and attracted to this restaurant from the motel compendium! Showed a great range of gluten free! On visiting found it had changed hands and a new menu applied. But not a problem basically tell them what we wanted and it’s possible!...More

Really nice and relaxed here, good drinks and very fine food from a comphrensive menu. Name I guess comes from being situated beside a war memorial. A super nice and warm place.
