I think the last time I dined in this hotel dining room was about 15 years ago. Sadly, I won't be rushing back. All four of us agreed that the food was rather ordinary. Perhaps it was 'chef's night off'.... A few days later we talked to some friends from overseas who were staying at Edgewater. They were happy with... More

Great lunch - the waitress' were great - Gaynor tired me out just watching her work - my burger was very good but the scone was a bit pricey - when I went to pay they had totally mucked up the bill ( missed putting the drinks or dessert on the account ) so not very professional or organised but...

We stayed at the Edgewater resort, so it was very convenient to have a meal there also. On the Saturday night we booked a table and enjoyed attentive service and amazing meals. Everything was cooked well, presented nicely and tasted delicious. Well priced and quick service.

I have eaten in the Wineglass cafe on several occasions. Though it is casual dining, the food is excellent and service good. Best of all, it is reasonably priced

The food here was delicious and I am so glad we spoke to the staff as there is quite alot of variation in the portions size. The lamb shank meal is massive. Try the squid entree for something a little different.

Hi Karen, Pleased you enjoyed your dishes and great to hear the staff were so helpful. Our Wineglass menu changes seasonally, so we are due to change to our summer menu on 1 December. Perhaps you may be over during the summer to try the lovely items on that menu. Regards Trish More

We met old friends at this restaurant for lunch on a cold Winter's day in August. To some extent, one's impression of a restaurant can be influenced by the occasion or the company of friends, but this was a really nice dining experience. The food was almost entirely local produce, and the dishes were well prepared and nicely served. We... More

The coffee is excellent - but the scones are out of this world. The best scone I've ever tasted, and they've got about 8 to choose from.
