Our fine wines by the glass include New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc which is a firm favourite with our customers and our Popular French Malbec by the Glass is a delicious Red Wine .

Petes passion for food produces delicious Home-made food from locally sourced Produce.
Please note all our meals are cooked fresh to order.
