We met friends in the car park who also had a birthday and staff quickly doubled us up onto a table for four - appreciated.

A popular place, so a very busy place at this time of year. 45 mins to get the lunch order served as it was busy even after 1.30pm

Unfortunately we will not be coming back. After spending alot of money on food for 8 , we had a 50min wait which had been told 40 when you have kids there is only so much they will tolerate , the food came out cold the burger bun was stale, some of the kids platters had missing items the chowderfish was chewy. Really disappointing as the last few times have been fantastic. Yes it was busy we booked in Nov and we knew it would be busy as its New Year's eve lunch but at 11am you would think they would have enough staff on.

Unfortunately your menu on your website does not match your actual menu ...... I was looking forward to trying a "pan hash brown" but there was no mention of that on the menu when we got there. Also I asked for my eggs scrambled and wasn't told it would cost any more but $3 was added to the bill for it. I wouldn't have minded if the staff member had told me it was going to cost extra.

Food and service were great as usual however for a very child-friendly cafe there is a lack of highchairs. I tried to book one in the reservation but they were all taken by the time we got there. Holding on to a wriggling toddler makes it harder to enjoy food and drink. But otherwise amazing.

Excellent venue for lunch with good range of food on offer. Brilliant for those with hearing issues as quiet dining spots available in the peaceful and quirky garden scape. Thanks Jester house team!
