“Good Food and Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

We had a group of 36 for lunch on the weekend.
Great food that was reasonably priced. Good wine list that was also reasonable.
It was a very hot day and although they couldn't fit such a group inside, it was fine sitting outside under the roof.
Only down side was that there were no burgers on the kids menu for lunch, only for dinner.
Would recommend.

Upmarket, professional restaurant experience. Everything was great from ambience, service, food and wine. Definitely worth a visit.

“What good service should really be like.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

My wife and I tried to find this restaurant on Saturday night and failed. We got lost in the dark. We stumbled on it again on our way home the following day. When we recounted that we hadn't been able to find them the previous evening, the wonderful waitress immediately whipped out the dinner menu (at lunchtime) specially for us. How's that for special service - our own exclusive menu! The filet mignon was absolutely perfect and my wife's warm lamb salad was to die for. Wonderful service and great food. If you read this review, please do try Blaxlands.

“Slightly disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

The service was pleasant and the menu quite varied. The inn is noted for it's deep dish pies which we chose for this reason. They were very ordinary.

“Yummy country gourmet food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

I went here for lunch as part of a wine tour and it was fantastic! Everyone ordered different things and every single dish looked delicious. They're well known for their deep pies so I ended up ordering that. It was well worth it! The meat simply melted in the mouth. Also, the garlic prawns were also excellent. The garlic damper came out piping hot and was absolutely delicious. The atmosphere was very lively but we were all still able to talk to each other. I would come back for sure.
