This place does lunch and desserts. It is a fairly busy and open space with in and outdoor seating. The service was quick and the food is yummy but the interior reminds me of a chain bakery such as banjos. A good place to grab some take away or stop off for a sweet and some lovely coffee on the...

Dear reader, the woodfired pizza at this tavern is the best I have ever had! Fast and friendly service is also a bonus.

Even though there were lots of people in the bakery, the girls either on the register or taking orders were all organized. The three of us had either a pie or sausage roll, followed by the usual bun and coffee or iced milk. Gave you a buzzer to tell you that your meal was ready to pick up. Better than... More

We got lovely meals here for breakfast. I had the vegetarian option and it was very tasty. The iced coffees and iced chocolates were lovely. If you need breakfast, try the bakery!!

My partner and I had dinner here recently and really enjoyed our meals. Nothing fancy just good honest food! They had good variety on the menu and a really good atmosphere. The staff were extremely nice and we didn't have to wait long for our meals. Highly recommend for a relaxed country dinning experience.

Had a great breakfast. My wife really enjoyed the her poached eggs (cooked just like her mum used to) and I really enjoyed the cream jelly cake.

Popped in for evening meal. Moat tables were already reserved but we managed to get one of the few free ones. Tip - come early if you haven't booked, it gets busy quickly. We had the Kangaroo and cheese sausages and mash, and the Asian noodles. Both very good, very tasty and arrived quickly. Overall would recommend.

Contemporary country pub - great ambiance, good food. Well setup with bakery, museum and backpackers accomm (to provide staff) to make it all work well. Good for tourists, no bogan front bar. Given the town (Swansea) overlooking the Great Oyster Bay this venue doesn't have the best view in town, but it's outdoor seating has pleasant views over pasture to... More

We had the freshest seafood so far on our trip in this pub. It was just good honest food, at reasonable prices. The tavern has an air of an old style country pub with its line of locals lining the bar and having a yarn and laugh. We sat in the bistro section which was more suitable for families. I... More
