We stopped for lunch last Sunday. The restaurant has a lovely rustic bar area, furnished with old English style leather couches. We were seated here whilst we waited to be seated at our table. I got a bit impatient and was about to leave after waiting for about 10 minutes, but the waitress caught us just in time - she'd been busy taking an order at a table of 15, which explained the delay. We was chirpy and friendly. We had one of the baked breads and I had the mushroom & leek soup which was delicious. My wife had one of their house specialities, the deep dish Chicken Pie. It was freshly baked, steaming hot and delicious. Perfect for a wet cold Sunday afternoon in the Hunter! The food & drinks are reasonably priced. Atmosphere was laid back with log fires burning inside & on enclosed patio seating area.
That evening, after scouring the local dining guide and online guides and finding very few options other than high priced, pretentious sounding places, we checked to see whether Blaxlands was open on a Sunday night, and we went back for dinner.
I had a really delicious steak, and my wife had the Atlantic salmon which she said was delicious. For dessert, I,had a Vanilla bean Cheese Cake and my wife had Hot Rhubarb and Apple crumble. Both were tops. We pigged out but finishing with a board of 100grams of fruit & nut chocolate and Tea & Coffee. I highly recommend Blaxlands.
