The take away will be open every dry day over 1/2 term from 11am to 3pm.

Open every day regardless of the weather - 10am to 5pm - 9am on weekends.   The take away and shop are now closed.  Our doggy cafe opens daily where the dog is king!   Water bowls, comfy beds and dry towels!   It's a dog's life!

Our new winter menu is now available.   We see the return of some old favourites and the arrival of a fantastic new plant based jackfruit dish.    Have it with our fab BBQ sauce in our popular tacos.    Our favourite has to be the duck and hoisin sauce hot wrap - succulent pulled duck with an authentic hoisin sauce - heaven.
