I've eaten here many times. I see some reviewers have commented about the decor being dated and this is probably true. Things could be freshened up a bit, but MS has a farm brand so I'm not sure what they would change. We arrived after...More

Excellent comfort food stop. It was a Friday, so no meat for me! Their battered fish was delicious and the rolls, slaw and warm apples that all are provided were delicious. You will not leave hungry from the Machine Shed.
