Arrived for an early dinner, warmly welcomed, good service and food. Would have returned my second night in Stratford but was invited to a BBQ. Free wifi available.

We stopped by for a few drinks and dinner after a long day on the road. The service was excellent, the drinks reasonably priced, and the meals hit the spot and left us well satisfied. The only downside was that they weren't open for us to return for breakfast the next morning!

An awesome place to go for a meal. We went with a very active nearly 3 year old boy. The waitress was so good with him. Keeping him amused with pencils and colouring books. Got his meal out to him early. So welcoming. Very quick service and delivery of food. Beautiful meals. Highly recommend.

This is a good average family restaurant - nothing too flash but OK. The craft beer was lovely. The fish and chips were nicely battered and cooked and portions generous. Plenty of locals eating there.

Had a nice lunch - ordered the open pork and apple sandwich - very nice and the fries with it were to die for! My fiancé had the Colonel Malone burger - also good. Friendly service and not in your face. Keep it up!!! 🙂

Would not recommend at all- service was bad and the food was not great at all. We had to ask to be served once for mains and then again for dessert. Won't be coming back at all.

Nice atmosphere. Deservedly busy. Evening meal served from 5 p.m. If you come sooner there is a more limited bar food menu. Service prompt and pleasant. We liked the options in the three-course Christmas menu. I found the flavour of the falafel which my wife ordered as an entrée (appetizer) more to my liking than the shrimp cocktail I ordered...

My adult daughter and I had a very pleasant lunch during my stay in Eltham this week. A lovely sunny day at a rather large establishment so we sat outside and we're greeted by very friendly staff members and served accordingly. I had the burger and fries,which was excellent no complaints there at all. Nothing more to say except that... More
