The Secret Society of Menz Shedders allowed their other halves a peek into their secret men’s business the other day. One of the blokes had organised a lunch, and yes, the womenfolk were cordially invited. We gathered at The Avenue, a restaurant just north of town.
The building is an unusual log cabin construction, with exposed rafters on the ceilings. Our group was seated at two tables, with plenty of chatter filling the room. And what’s for lunch? With such a big crowd, we were having a set menu. Mmm, roast lamb, that sounds tasty.

The meals were delicious, tasty roast lamb and plenty of veggies, with apple shortcake for dessert. And excellent value too, we felt, at $17 a head for two courses.
