This was a really amazing lunch. Took my mum and she loved it. A real gem for Ballarat dining.

The dining room was a little too noisey and well lit. It could be a little more rustic and table furnishings better and noise absorption wall coverings Otherwise Great meals. Good Service

Beautiful food presented well except the rhubarb was not cooked properly in the cheese cake desert.

Food and overall experience very good but the service, whilst friendly, was haphazard. Asked multiple times re drinks and food by different persons only to have dessert and some drinks not delivered until we asked a third time. That spoilt what had been an enjoyable evening.
Dean, Thankyou for the valuable feedback. I am disappointed that you received less than excellent service - we will attend to that with further staff training. Many of our floor staff are less experienced than we would like but we are committed to training them up to the standard required. Your feedback will assist us in that task. Kind regards John Finning

Pipe music earlier in the evening would have added to the atmosphere. Perhaps a piano player, given the ambience of the dinning room could be considered.
