This is an expensive menu and wine list with very few choices for vegetarians. Cuisine average. Portions were small. A disappointing experience.

My husband and I visited Ashcrofts in late June whilst on holiday from interstate. The ambience was elegant, warm and cosy – so inviting on a cold day. The chef’s wife welcomed us and explained the menu and wine selection in detail. We started our meal with handmade rolls with a balsamic reduction which had the most beautiful flavours. For... More

Elegant dining. We chose from a set menu. Delicous meals with quality produce and presentation. Great wine list. The service was professional and welcoming.

A small but interesting menu leaning towards minimalist but labour-intensive dishes. The kitchen aims high but can slip up. The pork belly, perfectly textured, was barely warm. The beer-battered onion ring atop the Wagyu eye fillet, unnecessary anyway, tasted of nothing but cooking oil letting down an otherwise very good dish. The green pea mousse and confit duck pithiver were... More

Had a wonderful evening recently at Ashcrofts. We went with the kids - the staff couldn't have been nicer to them. Between us, we had a range of entree, main and dessert dishes and all were beautifully put together with lovely flavours, with two or three dishes being absolute standouts that we were still talking about days later. My 9yo... More

Great food, interesting and top quality, small menu but good choices, good presentation, and great service. We (husband and I) booked in on a wintry friday night, (best to book in advance but there were a couple of spare tables on this night) but were very pleased we made the effort to leave our lovely, cosy hotel in Katoomba and...

Minimum charge $78 pp for 2 courses. We opted for snapper and venison mains & desserts, + 1 bottle of nice regional wine. Food had good flavours; thankfully vegie sides were included for benefit of both appetite & wallet (beware hot potato plate). Service was friendly, courteous & efficient (except lack of warning re burns risk). Decor was neutral whites... More

My partner and I had been wanting to try Ashcrofts for ages but finances didn't permit. We ended up going for her birthday, and had such a wonderful night. The service was friendly and unobtrusive and made us feel like we were valued, returning guests rather than Ashcroft newbies. The starter of a cauliflower soup-type dish with truffle oil (didn't...
