“Great staff, great wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

Staff were friendly and helpful... Ask them about wines from other lindemans owned wineries, you might be lucky enough to get a taste of the barossa without having to travel there.

“Best place for lunch in the Hunter Valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

The 1835 cafe at Lindemans was fantastic.

My wife and I came in in for lunch and were having trouble making our minds up on the menu so decided to share a single antipasto platter to start and go from there.

All I can say is WOW. The first thing we did was question the waiter when they brought the platter out as we thought they had made a mistake and brought a platter for 2. The platter was very substantial with a variety of cheeses, salami, smoked chicken, prosciutto cornishons, crackers and vegetables. All for $18 and we didn't need anything else.

The wine was extremely good value and service while a little slow was exceptionally friendly.

This will certainly be on our must do list each time we visit the Hunter valley.

“Definitely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Go here and have some lunch at the cafe with a bottle of wine. All staff are friendly and you can learn so much about wine from them. Its function centre is outstanding and is useful for conferences and weddings

“An "oldie but a goodie".”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Lindemans began life offering the "Ben Ean" range in the Hunter... And it has grown from strength to strength as one of the better wine providers offering a range of wines for all tastes. Many Lindemans wines are produced elsewhere now. Still a great place to visit and enjoy a taste of wine, and hear more about the range of wine that you can buy if you wish. We ate a wonderful Pizza lunch in the cafe. Great quality ingredients, and tasty pizza base. Def recommended when you need a break from the wine tasting. Good attentive staff, well-priced even for the expensive Hunter! Great for all ages.

“Excellent lunch in the vineyards”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

The large cafe was completely full when we arrived so booked a table for later and had a tasting elsewhere to kill the time (not difficult at all in Pokolbin). Nice casual atmosphere at the Harvest with attentive friendly staff. The meals are very generous. My wife and I shared the pork ribs. We could have shared it between three easily. We added a shaved Parmesan and pear salad which were both excellent. The chats were delicious with a lemon thyme dressing. We looked for the 1843 harvest cafe because of the Entertainment book voucher. Unlike the reviewer below, ours was for 25% off total bill and we had no problem. The voucher turned it from merely good value to excellent value. Being attached to the Lindemans tasting room adds another dimension and it would be a great venue to bring visitors and tourists.
