We are a wine bar in the middle of town.  Our tastes in wine may be slightly weird, but we think there are others out there like us.  Come and join us, it's a small but friendly place.



Monday - Friday from midday until late

Saturday from 3pm until late

Sunday from midday until 10pm(ish)


Kitchen open all day (so is the bar)


Our full menu is available Monday to Friday from midday until 3pm and from 5pm until late Monday to Sunday.

For Sunday lunch we offer a $50 set menu, please go to “lunch reservations” page for more info.

At all other times we have a limited snacks menu available.


We will be closed from Monday 23rd December 2019 to Tuesday 7th January 2020 inclusive.

We will re-open from 3pm on Wednesday 8th January, with normal trading hours resuming from Sunday 12th January.


We're a casual place and don't take any bookings in the evenings.
