Romantic dinner for two

This was our second stay at Manor house and dinner at Katers. It's lovely to be able to have such a nice dinner and then walk upstairs to bed! We ordered off the a la carte menu adding a bottle of wine. Dinner was $220 which is usual for us and we both found it very filling and satisfying. The... read more

Katers provides really fancy meal with some fancy atmosphere, but dinner was stretched for 2 hours which was way too long, also, quantity was very small.

Hello Judy Z, Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding your recent meal in Katers. While I am glad you thought the food was very fancy I apologize that the dinner was stretched to 2 hours - this is certainly not our normal service time. With regards to our portion sizes, the meals are portioned with a three course meal... More

We had the 5 course degustation which is supposed to cost $110 per person but we had a deal with our accommodation for a $100 credit (per couple). At $60 a head - ie what we paid - it was great. At $110 a head - the "going rate" I would have been really quite annoyed / disappointed. I've done... More

Hello SydneyBeth, Thanks for sharing about your recent dining experience at Peppers Manor House. I am so glad you took up our special offer; five courses for $59 a head is a real steal! I am glad you really enjoyed the lamb dish - it is one of my favorites too. I am disappointed that the others didn't really impress... More

They provided good service, with very good food and there was parking on site. A little pricey but not over the top. An extensive wine list with some very nice moderately priced wines.

The main draw card to having High Tea at Katers was on the back of a regional review of High Teas in the Southern Highlands. Katers particularly made reference to catering for people with limited dietary requirements. Unfortunately they didn't really deliver compared with other establishments, for example The Tea Room at the QVB in Sydney. The gluten free selection... More

Fantastic food with outstanding service. Decor not as modern as I would have expected but couldn't fault the food or wine.
