“Launch/performance on the Wine Box porch”


Reviewed 6 August 2015


I had a performance evening to launch my vocal tutoring business, Coco Collaborative on the porch of Wine Box.

It was the perfect setting for these young singers to do their first public performance- relaxed and with a kind crew of supporters cheering them on.

We had nibbles to accompany, a favourite being the flower pot bread!


Thankful to the wonderful staff of Wine Box for their brilliant service and for creating such a perfect space to host the launch!





“My first kangaroo steak”


Reviewed 8 July 2015


My first time eating a kangaroo steak and loved it! The dish looked beautiful and tasted just as good. Generous portions too.


Service was good and the staff were pleasant.


Will definitely go back and I can't wait.

“GreaT place for a business Lunch”


Reviewed 25 May 2015


Our company has been here a number of times and each time has been different, but there has never been a bad time.

It was a quiet one today, we were sat next to the open fire, which was pleasant.

Service was good, hostess was very friendly, the time from ordering to arriving seemed a little long, but we didn't really notice because we were catching up with each other who come from different parts of the town.

The meals were presented very nicely, and tasted great.

I can't really comment on the price since the boss paid for us all :)
