The food took over an hour to come to the table , when we questioned the service they were really rude about it. When we were paying we brought it to their attention and very insulted by a comment made by the head chef advising we might be more comfortable with a pub meal. Very rude , insulting and condescending,... More

We go there for lunch everytime we stay up there and are never disappointed with the food and the service - they make you fell very welcome, their wines are lovely and if you like tapas you will love it - highly recommended.

Beatiful vineyard grounds. Inviting cellar door experience with staff members who went above and beyond to help a couple of novice wine tasters pick a good drop. We loved the butler blends and frizzante and ended up supplying these wines to our guests for our recent wedding. Thanks tattler:)

Stopped in for wine tasting (definitely not the happiest nor best service cellar door that you can get in the Hunter) and then for some lunch. Lovely fat chips. Pork belly was devine and garlic and chilli prawns. Lovely meal...we ordered 3 plates for 2 of us and it was a lot of food. Plates around $25 each which can... More

It was late, nearly 2:30pm when we rocked up for lunch. The waiting staff greeted us with a smile and showed us to our tables even though they must had a busy lunch service before we arrived. Being a tapas style restaurant we were able to order the sizes suitable for 2. They have the best chunky with very garlicky... More

Tattlers were recommended to us and as we were just down the road wine tasting, it was worth a try. We were not disappointed. Just a great setting, terrific food and great service. The chef moved between the tables to chat which gave a personal touch. We will return there.
