Staff, polite and helpful, service a little slow but I have been to Wild Oak several times before and service has been good. Food very appropriate for Christmas in July 3 courses $40 plus wine. Roasted pork belly done a treat, Christmas pudding moist.and flavoursome.

Was close to where we were staying. Good choice of food. Two chose salmon which they said was great. I went for the kangaroo roast on confit. That was delish. The service was good. Worth visiting if you are around the area.
