We recently had lunch for a birthday and could not fault a thing. We were seated by the open fire which was lovely considering it was a cold and wet day and the ambience of the place was lovely. The service was great and very quick. The food was delicious and could not fault a thing. We will definately be... More

Having inspected on the web, we decided a personal visit to be in order.. From the friendly welcoming staff, ambience and well executed menu everything was excellent. We had the charcuterie, pesto filled ravioli and the most amazing field mushroom risotto. Not large servings but sufficient for lunch although including a couple of sides would have anyone filled and happy..

This is by far my favourite Adelaide Hills restaurant. I just love the setting - a cozy old cottage with a fireplace. The food is all locally sourced and well prepared. Last time I was there I had a totally to-die-for venison dish and a bottle of Ashton Hills pinot noir - heaven! The service is always friendly.

Great food and personal service. Been 3 times and food was consistently good. Particular like sitting on veranda and enjoying a nice glass of local wine. Also tried the winter menu with some great hearty meals.

We were seated by the fire….so lucky! The ambience, staff and service were great. Came for brunch and the food was delicious! Coffee strong and 'did the job'. Portion size small….the only disappointment.

My daughters took me to the White House for my 67th birthday and it didnt disappoint. Firstly it was a cold day in Hahndorf so the log fire was a welcome sight. The waitress who looked after us was very friendly & helpful. This a a lovely original old cottage in the main part of Hahndorf that has been turned... More

Usually drop in here when visiting Adelaide for breakfast on the bike. Always interesting french style menu with something different, sourced from local produce. Not cheap but great atmosphere, particularly in winter, although I love sitting out on the verandah, sipping a coffee. Greeted by the wait staff who made you feel welcome and looked after. I'll be back again.

The White House is a renovated heritage listed cottage – with not a trace of chintz, crochet or net curtains. Score three points immediately. More points for friendly and helpful staff, reasonably priced local wine and rustic, bistro style locally sourced food (the lamb ragout was delicious). Add an open log-fire on a chilly 10C day and you have an... More

The White House is an old cottage located in the Main Street of Hahndorf. It's well worth a visit for a leisurely weekend breakfast. They have a charming ambience-with a welcoming open fire. The food is excellent- high quality and several interesting options. I had steak with egg and spinach,with a delightful Hollandaise sauce. The staff are cheerful and friendly.... More
