We ordered shared plates which were tasty and reasonable value for money. A pity the First Table is put in an unappealing corner inside when you have a lovely courtyard out the back. We had to ask 3 times for an item to be brought to us as they kept forgetting. The S'mores are novel and worth ordering for dessert.

Service was friendly and professional. We loved the Farmer's Board and the Crispy Chicken entrees - I'd go back for these again. The mains didn't hit the mark however. Lamb Ragu that was more like a papardelle bolognese than a rich ragu, with far too much pasta (I left 2/3 of it on the plate). The other mains; pork belly, steak, fish, were ok but no stand outs. Feedback about the Lamb Ragu was given at the time, and the waitress offered to provide an alternative, which was appreciated. Loving the refurbished interior and the pendants with the funky lightbulbs (which are dim-able). Not loving the bright white light ceiling lights that cannot be dimmed, nor turned off...this makes the dimming of the funky lightbulbs pointless. I know it is early days so things will improve, and we're looking forward to visiting again.

Great evening out -fun decor, good beer selection and wine list, Arancini and Empanadas entrees were a delicious start, followed by Angus eye fillet and Hand Made Pansotti -hard to decide which was the best. We'll definitely be back.

I just love your venue!! I’ve came across you by chance when seeking a nice brunch venue to cater to 10 ladies in a group I look after. You exceeded my expectations. What a gorgeous venue, fabulous food & such a nice vibe. I will be back and a definite regular. Only small detail noted was a little slow to get service attention when ordering. You were pretty busy on a Saturday morning so well to be expected I’m sure. Thanks for your awesomeness!

A somewhat disappointing experience. Service was slow, felt like the waitress was rushing as it was a busy Friday night. Risotto was tad over salty and we were not asked or offered dessert after main meals. I remember having far better experiences at the Garden Shed prior to the reopening when I dined there last year.
