Yes we do. Gift vouchers and cards available for purchase here.
Can I bring my dogs to your venue?
Of course! We are a dog friendly restaurant and we are excited to pat your furry baby too! Cats and dogs are welcomed. We also have a dog menu! Please note that pets are only allowed in outdoor dining areas, strictly no indoor seatings according to Food Safety Practices in Australia. You must mention that you have a dog in your reservation note for us to arrange your seatings accordingly. Kindly do not just show up with your pet without notice.
Do I need to book or can I walk in?
Both Normal Dining and High Tea sittings are required to be pre-booked on weekends. This is to avoid disappointment as we are busy on weekends and we can’t guarantee spots would be available should you try to swing by! We will put you on the waitlist if you show up without reservations as we may call you if there is a vacancy. Please respect our host at all times.
On a weekday, you may walk in but high tea dietary restrictions can not be accommodated on the spot.
Book online at any time!
What is High Tea? Is it the same as afternoon tea?
High Tea is not the same as afternoon tea. It consists of a more substantial meal served at the dinner table. The high tea typically includes a combination of savoury dishes such as sandwiches, meats, and vegetables. This meal is accompanied by tea, but the focus is on delicate sweets and cakes. It also represents time spent in lovely tea rooms, enjoying luxurious food and amazing conversation with friends and family.

Afternoon tea is introduced as a way to curb the afternoon hunger pangs between lunch and late dinner. It is designed as a light, elegant indulgence, focusing on the enjoyment of tea and delicate pastries in a relaxed setting. It is often served along with hot tea and scones, sometimes a light finger snack would do.
Do you have a minimum requirement for High Tea bookings?
High Tea booking will be a 2-hour sitting. Session times are: 11am - 1pm ; 11:30am - 1:30pm 1pm - 3pm ; 1:30pm - 3:30pm 3pm - 5pm ; 3:30pm - 5:30pm
