Food took its time, wine was delicious

Lovely Sunday lunch with extended family. Breads were great, mains took over an hours wait which was unusual as there were only 2 other small tables. Staff were fantastic, attentive and hospital towards both the small children and our older grandparents. Great settings. Food needed a bit more depth... read more

We visited Wither Hills on an organised tour, this was our stop for lunch and the food was outstanding. My boyfriend still raves about the pork belly burger!! The wine tasting was excellent too, but the highlight was definitely the food!

Recently went to the restaurant for lunch expecting something amazing after a long drive and after deciding on the eye fillet medium rare, and the pork belly for my partner and I.

There were 8 of us for lunch and every person thoroughly enjoyed their food, my gnocchi was the best I have ever had!

Ordered the platter for three of us as a 'light' lunch. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and was more than enough food! Can't wait to go back!

This place was too busy for lunch or tasting. Menu looked $$$. Too busy to find alternate so we went back to Forrest, which was great.

Had lunch at the restaurant. Had the chicken and fish, followed by the apple tart. Dessert was good, but lunch was above average. Had 2012 pinot noir, which was pretty good. Overall, not bad.

The Chef and his team put on a meal that matched six country based dishes with local wines - outstanding. Food, service and wine were great and the atmosphere superb
