TRIP ADVISOR. Reviewed 3 December 2014
I had the unique opportunity to visit the Wine Box for a celebration and was pleasantly surprised at the unique character of the restaurant. They have kept the 'village appeal' to the décor and the ambience was excellent. I had the pleasure of having venison, ostrich and kangaroo. The food was exquisite and definitely worthwhile sampling. A thoroughly enjoyable experience!

“A warm welcome and good food”
This small restaurant is a great place to eat. We were welcomed by a friendly outgoing manager who was efficient and chatty without being over-powering.
We enjoyed the variety of food dishes offered. Good quality and well presented.

ZOMATO. 3RD DECEMBER 2014
Four of us went to the Wine Box on Saturday night and we all enjoyed it. All the entrees went down well and the steaks we had were cooked exactly as we wanted. The atmosphere was good and it was busy. A good selection of wines and good to see Craft Beers available although they could do with adding a few more. Overall it was very good evening and well priced.
