“Above average pub fare with attentive and friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Blaxlands outshines the other local Pokolbin pubs (potters and harrigans) by far. The staff are consistently friendly and attentive and the atmosphere is cosy and intimate with a lovely fireplace. Food is really tasty, fresh and good value. Very good pub grub from deep dish pies, juicy steaks, loaded pizzas and huge burgers. Definitely worth the visit.

“Best Restaurant in the Hunter Valley!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

I was so impressed with Blaxlands. I ordered the steak which was definitely 10/10. The food quality was very fresh and presentation was amazing. The staff were so friendly and accommodating and I would highly recommend anyone else to visit there. I will be back very soon :)

“Great place for lunch.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We returned to Blaxlands Inn for lunch as we had such a nice time on our previous trip. It was lovely that Amy remembered us and joined us for a chat. Our meal was good and it is such a relaxing place. I am sure it will be lunch again when we go back.
