As another “Year of Interesting Times” draws to a close, and life seems to be almost normal (albeit with Covid storm clouds looming) we wish all our lovely community & our visitors a very happy and safe holiday period. We have certainly all earned it !


Like many others in our sector, we remain short a number of staff, and have thus made the difficult decision to remain closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. After being closed for ten months because of the fire, this is the last thing we wanted to do but to ensure we maintain our standard of customer service, and to not jeopardise the well-being of our staff we have little choice. We will expand these hours as soon as we can.  


For the next six weeks we will be open Wednesday to Sunday from 8.00am to 4.00pm and open for dinners from 5.30pm to 8.30pm on Friday’s and Saturday’s, including New Years Eve. Please note that we will be closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. If you want to sample the superb food now being produced by Bernard Ricca (of Ricca’s and Stumpy Gully renown) bookings for dinner really are essential. The back deck and beer garden will be open at all these times.


Monday & Tuesday:            Closed

Wednesday & Thursday:     8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Friday & Saturday:              8:00 am - 4:00 pm then 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Sunday:                                8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Closed Christmas Day & Boxing Day.


We operate under quite onerous and totally inflexible Government regulations that require us to check your vaccination status and to have you register your attendance each and every time you visit. Please bear with our staff on this matter – we certainly do not enjoy this task but have absolutely no choice in this.

Thankyou for your support and encouragement over the last, and most interesting, twelve months - it made a big difference to us ! We hope you have a peaceful, safe and happy holiday and look forward to seeing you round and about in our wonderful part of the world


Angela, David, Sandi & the Team.
