Maynard P.

Our evening at Governors was a highlight of our trip to Sydney. We loved the stew and fish and chips. Well done. We had had an emotional day saying good bye to our family home and burying our parents ashes so an evening with you all was just the RX. Thanks again, wonderful evening. We had a blast.
