This is our favourite place to go on our date night. The food is exceptional. The slow cooked meat must be female, because it basically runs away from the bone. The wine list is also 100/100!

Had been meaning to go to this restaurant again as I hadn't been for a couple of years and it was still as good as last time. Amazing food again and great atmosphere and good selection on the wine list.

No it's not BYO. It's a fully licensed restaurant. But I would suggest the Stumpy Gully Pinot Noir. It's a nice one
