Our feature wines of the moment are from Petal & Stem, created by the Yealands winery in the famed Marlborough winemaking region in New Zealand.
The white wine is a sauvignon blanc and the red is a pinot noir – these are both wines for which Marlborough is renowned. The tasting notes for the sauv blanc promise ‘classic Marlborough flavours’; for the red, they indicate that it’s a lovely soft drop.

We have a new beer on tap: Furphy Refreshing Ale, created by Little Creatures
Little Creatures Brewing have breweries in Fremantle and Geelong built using tanks and fermenters supplied by Furphy Engineering in Victoria. Keen to have a beer with a connection to Victoria, they subsequently approached Furphy about creating the beer that became Furphy Refreshing Ale.
The beer is brewed in Geelong using ingredients sourced from within Victoria, and the brewer’s tasting notes say, ‘The first sip is clean and crisp, with a subtle balance of fruit and malt to keep it interesting. The finish is smooth and pleasantly refreshing.’
We’ve made some changes to our menu to suit the season. Plenty of favourites are still there, including chicken schnitzel and burgers and steaks, but we’ve added some lighter fare for summer, including:
Thai Beef Salad with noodles and traditional dressing (gf)
Garden Salad* with avocado, mixed garden salad & creamy dressing (v, gf)
Caesar Salad* with bacon, croutons and parmesan
*add grilled chicken, chicken schnitzel or smoked salmon
Also, the beef & Guinness pie has been so popular as a special that it’s permanently on the menu, and we have a new pasta dish: creamy smoked salmon penne with flat leaf spinach.

Sometimes a glass of wine or a schooner of beer is not quite the ticket – which is where the cocktail comes in. Our list of cocktails includes the espresso martini (of course), the cosmopolitan, mojito, margarita and mai tai. You can see the full list here.
Our wine list is now available on the website – you can view our range of sparkling, white, red, rosé, dessert and fortified wines here. Our extensive selection includes prosecco and Champagne, plus a wide selection of chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, cab sauv, pinot noir and shiraz.
We’ve set up a reading corner near the fireplace – that is, there’s a heap of books on the mantelpiece, so if you have some time to kill and you’re looking for something to read, there’s a selection waiting for you. And we don’t mind at all if you take the book home.
We regularly host functions and events in our function room space and also in the beer garden (and sometimes both – depending on the size of the function!). If you’re organising a function for work, family or friends, you can reserve the function room at no extra charge. We also have a function menu.
