we sat by the fire and shared a number of share plates and a great glass of red wine or two. Food and friendly staff were great. Well worth a meal at this place.

I actually had no expectations when, on my partner's suggestion, we walked into this outstanding Daylesford restaurant. From the moment we walked in we were warmly welcomed by the owners, Christine and Richard, and it just got better from here on. The interiors are elegant, warm and comfortable and offer classic table seating as well as more intimate dining booths.... More

Richard and Chris, thank you so much for a special evening. Placed in front of the fireplace we enjoyed all that one might expect from a top notch restaurant and much more. We were infused with the delightful ambience of the space and the attentive and caring nature of you both. Chris, thank you for your guidance with choice of... More

$10 cocktails and $1 oysters during Happy Hour made for a very pleasant early evening outing. We also very much enjoyed 3 other sharing plates - scallops, pork and duck terrine. The pork was the best I think I have ever eaten, and the duck was delicious. Worst thing was the inadequate amount of heating on a very cold night... More

Food was so so. Some of the dishes were good, one was shocking (a virtually raw vegetarian dish), the others OK. The service was appalling. Our mains arrived after other customers had finished theirs, and we had arrived a good 10 minutes before them. The waitress was apologetic when she saw our food was slow to arrive despite our lack...

Hello and thank you for your review. On weekends when we have two sittings and 4 dining rooms booked, main meals cannot come out of the kitchen any faster than 30 minutes which is completely acceptable in any busy restaurant. With our main dishes we use no microwaves, the highest quality and locally sourced/many organic ingredients. Near your table we... More

Ate here on our last night. I ordered the Pork cutlet which was burnt dry and tasteless. My friend ordered the beef cheek which she said was okay. Potato side was expensive for soggy baked chats. Overall I was very disappointed as the environment is beautiful but food defiantly not value for the money.

Hello Tily, it is rare that we get negative feedback on our food as we use local, organic and ethically sourced produce and so much attention to detail occurs with every dish but I am so sorry that you feel disappointed. The pork is Wessex pork, free range and organic, the beef check locally sourced and slow cooked for 12... More
