I was in the Hunter Valley for a mum & daughter weekend and I felt like a pub meal so I mentioned at one of the wineries, Tamberlaine, I had seen the Royal Oak Hotel and was considering dinner there and they said I must go, it is amazing. So I did and they were spot on.
I eat out a lot and I highly value friendly service and value for money.
The food here was delicious, generous portion sizes, an unexpected amuse bouche and petit fours to complete the meal and the wait staff must love their job because they were so friendly.
All up we paid less than $100 and had a glass of wine each, shared two entries and a main and we were very full when we left. The quality of the food was sensational. If we had time I would have liked a pre-dinner drink in the beautiful lounge.
If you are going on a weekend it is wise to book as it was busy.
The next day we went to the cafe also attached to the pub for a take away coffee and it lived up to my fussy coffee tastes!
