Fantastic location, amazing cappuccino and coffees made by Chloe, a yummy mint chocolate as a bonus, a beautiful open wood fire which made it very cosy inside - couldn't have asked for anything better on a cool, Winter afternoon! Thank you!!

Sat in the bar next to the cosy log fire chatting with the locals. Host Ken approached us and offered advice on wineries and sites in the area after seeing us looking at pamphlets. Ended up staying for dinner and were not disappointed. Although meals were large serves they were hot and tasty. Wait staff were attentive and we were... More

We stayed in the deluxe cottage which was just gorgeous. They had wood ready for us to light a romantic fire, a split system and a big deep spotless bath. So we couldn't have been more warm and comfortable. The cottage garden is just gorgeous & the staff were lovely. We will definitely come again.

We ordered and waited for over an hour for simple meals, bangers and mash and a schnitzel. Yes they were busy but when we finally had the chance to ask about the meals they appeared minutes later.... the food was ok I suppose. I enjoyed the garlic bread but think they forgot the garlic. Oh well... I definitely would not... More

We stayed one night in the Clare Valley on our way to Western Australia. We had dinner at this great colonial style hotel. The main bar is exactly as you would expect from a good country pub, full of atmosphere and very friendly locals keen to chat. The draught beer is perfect and the meal we had was very good... More

Even though this is our local pub, the food here is always above average. So it was great to enjoy their new autumn menu last night. All the Entrées that we shared were tasty and looked great on the plate. Try the duck baskets and mushrooms. My main of 12 hour cooked pork belly was tender taste of Asian flavours... More

On our way down the Clare Valley we stopped at the historic Rising Sun Hotel for a drink at the bar -- this is a beautiful old building in the colonial style, very well maintained (we were sorry not to stay for dinner and the night). Excellent wine from the local vineyards. The staff was welcoming and friendly, and very... More

We were travelling home to NSW through the area and decided to stop for the night in Auburn. Enquired about rooms and meals and were shown the cottage accommodation which we felt was perfect and the price very affordable. Room and bathroom were quaint but comfortable and quite nostalgic. Booked in for a very enjoyable meal, staff were pleasant and... More

Went there for lunch today. Food was pretty average, uninteresting and lacking in flavour. I had the lamb sausages that were meant to be very special. They were a big serve and yet surprisingly tasteless they were served my favourite way - with mash - which again had little to recommend it. My wife had a salmon salad that was... More

After reading all the wonderful reviews for this venue we were looking forward to a delicious meal with great hospitality. Wow! What a surprise. We thought we had the wrong venue. On arrival we were met by a very rude disinterested waitress. We ordered the same wine and main meal for two - only won glass of wince came out... More
