Royal Mail Hotel Winter vs Spring menu general question

Has anyone been for both the winter and spring menus? Did anyone prefer one over the other because of ingredients? If not, what were some impressions of the winter menu.

Does anyone know when spring gardens really start to boom in that part of Vic?

This would probably also apply to Attica. Does anyone have a preference based on the menu selection of winter versus spring?
