But a new wine bar and tapas restaurant has taken its place. Lots of local wines by the glass and small plates featuring local produce

There wasn't much open in Penola when we were there so we decided to try Bushman's. On arrival we thought the restaurant looked a bit bare with with some weird decor but we were shown to our table by a very friendly waitress and there was a good choice of food on the menu. We had a slight hiccup with... More

We dined as a group of six after the long drive from adelaide. Atmosphere - restaurant setting a little ad hoc and cluttered Food - Good menu choice something for everyone. Our meals were basic and did the job after a long drive as they came quickly. Bread was a little stale. Service - friendly but a little haphazard at... More

Had booked a table for 13, including 2 small kids and that was all prepared. I had made the booking already in August 2015, so I was really happy that all was OK. Not that many people, except us in Place ao we had most of the attention. The food was good - very good - actually better than my... More

We stayed next door at the Coonawarra Motor Lodge for the long weekend and Darren and his staff catered for all of our breakfasts and one of our dinners. Top marks for getting cooked breakfast out so quickly so that we could start our days on time. Dinner was enjoyed by all and in accord with our budget, good wine... More

We ordered the rabbit pie and crumbed pork chop. The pork chop was overdone and burnt on one side. The rabbit pie came with pea mash that was just pea mash, no herbs or seasoning. It was a meal prepared without love.

We had a lovely supper here. The menu has some good options and it took us a while to decide. The food was warm, hearty and fresh. We'd go back for more!

We didn't expect a dining experience which was a good job as we didn't get one! The service was friendly but slow and my husband's rabbit pie left a lot to be desired, being mushy and tasteless. The only good thing was the freshly cooked chips. We certainly weren't inspired to order a desert and will look for somewhere different... More
