There is foot path trading to the front of the venue which is a premium in the Summer looking out over the Walter Reserve. The smokers also have their own covered courtyard in the venue. Heading inside it is a large open plan set up with the bar running down the middle of the venue. Around the bar there is formal and informal dining, sofas and chairs to accommodate any number of patrons. The sofas near the fires are hit in the Winter. To the side of the bar is a large fully equipped commercial kitchen. And other corridors lead to a comfortable office and a private dinning/board room. Upstairs there are eight rooms of basic accommodation that are nearly all fully booked and this provides on average $1500 a week.
