The restaurant was recently burnt down. We lost alot of the historic Victorian station. But there are plans, I believe , to rebuild and restore. So watch this space

Fast service and a wide diversity in offerings made this a great place to sample local fare. Anything from lunch to dinner was well worth the trip. Went there 3 times in 2 weeks
