  • Some tasty looking options on the menu. I had the zucchini fritters, they were tasty and a decent size. If you are a big eater then perhaps not the selection for you. Let meals looked pretty good too. Went for a staff function outside, it gets pretty warm in the outdoor sheltered area.
  • Charming property and beautiful gardens. There was a wedding on at the time i visited, so i didnt go into the property but from outside, its absolutely charming. Great part of Canberras history. Only two warning, be careful for snakes in the summer and to get to the homestead you need to drive along an unsealed road so probably avoid washing your car till after you have visited
