Chorizo, pumpkin and pea linguine was awesome. The sparkling cider is delicious. Haven't been here for a while and it is better than I remember. We will be back soon.

This place is very popular with locals who attend on a Friday night to catch up with neighbours and the local gossip. We went with OH's cousin and his wife who live just two doors away. Kelly, her husband, the staff and their children were very welcoming and delivered excellent pizzas and salad along with local wines and cider. Excellent... More

This is a beautiful of building which apparently was a morgue at one stage. It is now home to 321 Learmonth Cafe. We had a bottle of sparkling cider which was lovely but at $35 a bit on the pricey end. Great menu and service.

After a delicious lunch some weeks ago Brian & I decided that this was the place we would like to bring our friends to celebrate my 70th birthday. It was held on Saturday 12th March and was beyond expectation, stunning food, excellent service, not just excellent but caring, cooperative hostessing by Tim and Cally and their delightful staff member. Everybody... More

This would have to be the worst place I have ever been to, extremely rude owner. Would never recommend this place to anyone. I think the only good reviews would be from the staff.

We enjoyed a delicious lunch sitting on the deck. One of the best pasta dishes I've ever had. Very nice hot coffee too. Will be visiting regularly.

This is a nice restaurant, and it is pleasant to sit on the back deck in good weather. The food was tasty and initial service was good, but was absolutely spoiled by the waiter exuding a strong odour of stale cigarette smoke. He was also fairly flippant, calling my elderly husband "mate" which he really didn't appreciate. This was probably... More
