Who we are

Who we are

The kitchen adopts an obsessively local philosophy to drive home honest simple flavours that deliver the goods  –  Fairfax Good Food Guide

Moving from Sydney 10 years ago having worked at Three Weeds in Rozelle, along with Merivale’s Bistro CBD and Est. restaurant, John and Sonia bring city slick dining with a country vibe.

Celebrating the region with a Chef’s menu experience, John delights in crafting elegant yet simple dishes.  Real honest food, driven by flavour and truly seasonal produce. 

Renowned for Sonia’s knowledgeable and relaxed hospitality style, the service is warm, attentive and welcoming.


The safety of our guests and our team is a high priority at this time. We have limitations related to table spacing and we are adhering to these limits.

Please ensure that you have read and understood these guidelines before you come into our venue. If you have cough, fever, sore throat or shortness of breath, do not enter the venue.  Go home, be safe and get medical advice.

Hand sanitiser is on the table just inside the doorway please use it. We have good cleaning and hygiene protocols in place, including frequent washing and sanitising of high touch points.  If you have suggestions, let us know.

Every guest must check via the Service NSW App – it requires your name, phone number & email address.

We’ll provide table service.  Your only movements should be to enter and leave, and to use the toilets.  Stay 1.5m away from other guests wherever possible. Payment will be taken at the table. The credit card machine is sanitised after use.

Let’s keep each other safe as we’re all in this together.
