Plenty of variety on the menu for the whole family, the food is very good with reasonable portion sizes. The pizzas are the best you will get in town.

Friendly staff and excellent country cooking brings both locals and travellers into this small bistro located on one side of the riverine hotel. We had lamb cutlets and pork ribs. Both served with a generous supply of chips and fresh salad. Excellent selections of local wines.
