GREAT food and service. My kids were easily catered for and there is a great outdoor space for them to play in while I enjoyed my coffee/breakfast! Highly recommend!

A very enjoyable lunch, lovely food and great venue. Service was friendly but adhoc, and seemed to happen by request rather than by staff being attentive.

Beautiful setting with amazing food. We had the gurnard which we both highly rated. And the fries were the best! We buried while there was live music for Arrow Sounds which was a real bonus.

My family had lunch at the Dishery (all 19 of us) to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. The atmosphere and service was fantastic and the food was delish! Highly recommend the Dishery.

Was so noisy today that I couldn't hear my friend speaking. Electric drill work going on upstairs the whole time we were there. Disappointed in the crayfish pancake. Wouldn't have known it crayfish fish or even seafood of any sort. Based on today I wouldn't return & I'm a local.

Restaurant Response

We offer our sincere apologies that you were disturbed by the drilling noise as construction was finished on the offices upstairs from the restaurant. This was a temporary occurrence. We are so sorry it disturbed the ambience of our wonderful garden setting for you. Our staff perhaps should have explained the crayfish pancake to you when you ordered. We use fresh meat from a whole crayfish prepared in house with a delicate fresh flavour. Most customers absolutely rave about the pancake. We are sorry it was not to your liking. We do hope you will try our establishment again.

Excellent, food and service were all great. Music was a little loud when we arrived, but as soon as we mentioned it, it was turned down a bit so you could converse, so that was great.
