My drink was the Nutella kahlua mudslide ($16), a concoction with loads of Nutella, and whipped cream, and nicely alcoholic. I kinda stumbled home after this one. Very filling, very delicious. Hubby had the vanilla thickshake ($7.50); it came with whipped cream on top (which he isn’t a fan of) and was not cold enough for his taste. As he says – ‘the cream or ice cream should be mixed in with the milkshake’ – but that's his personal disposition.
|Nutella Kahlua Mudslide $16 - a meal in itself:-)|
The family of four had a glass of rosé, a beer, a soft drink and a coffee milkshake – all fine, and as expected, though the youngest Barrelmaker had to return her drink and have a new one made up as her original order had been mixed up. This was fixed promptly and without fuss.

All up, not a bad place to have a drink and/or a meal. And next time hopefully it won’t be raining! (And it wasn't - raining, that is)
Addendum: Mr P. and I came here for dinner a couple of weeks later with Princess Pia. I had talked up the chicken fillet so we both had that, while Mr P. went for the chicken and Napoli calazone $20. He liked the filling, but wasn't a huge fan of the dough. A bit too heavy, he thought. But he enjoyed his salad with the tangy dressing. The Princess (being Italian) told us that calazone means a pair of knee-high socks! So take what you will from that:-)
|deliciously tender grilled chicken $18|
A little less caramelised round the edges this time, but still so tender and tasty. I enjoyed the salad a bit more than the previous time, as it had a few more fresh ingredients and less capsicum strips. Did the salad dressing have maple syrup? I think it may have, so a bit sweet for my tastes.
|Fifth Leg sauvignon blanc $8|
The Princess drank sauvignon blanc ($8), while I went for a glass of Prosecco ($7). Mr P. stuck to lemon, lime and bitters $4.50 (which sadly came out of a bottle rather than being mixed at the bar) as he was the designated driver (as usual - tee hee). All up, we three enjoyed our meals and found them great value. Oh, and the service was friendly, prompt and helpful. One of the lovely ladies grabbed extra chairs and set up an outside table for us, without demur. A pleasant evening! And no rain:-)
