Description
Relaxed family country style restaurant with a wide variety of menu items for everyone to enjoy. Wonderful outside seating under the Acacia trees and large children's play area. There is a cosy pub with large TV that is a favorite with the locals and stylish indoor area with an open fireplace for those cold and rainy days.
