I’m in Canberra and my 2 besties are in Sydney. Years ago, we decided to schedule 6mthly catch ups rather than just getting together whenever an ‘occasion’ arose! We initially started nominating somewhere new each time. Was told about Eling Forest so decided to try it. It is fabulous!!! We have now decided to just make this ‘our place’. Can’t fault it, food is awesome, lots of variety from a toasted sandwich to roasts, risottos, pasta....amazing sweet options too. Lovely veranda with umbrellas outside, fireplace inside. Obviously a winery, so can include that too if you like. Don’t miss this place, half way Canberra/Sydney, whether you want lunch or just a cuppa.
Great half way stop from Sydney to Canberra. We’ve been been here several times and always found the food and service good. The bacon and eggs and sourdough are delicious and the tomato full of flavour. The fruit tart is full of flavour. The fire was on when they opened and was very welcoming. They also have toilets....good to know when breaking up a trip
Ahhhh Second time I’ve stopped here for coffee, when I’ve checked your website to see if your open and you’re not!! I’m sure the 4 cars driving in behind us would have also been annoyed. Best call ahead if you’re planning to stop here.
Made a random stop for a 5 min break which ended being almost an hour. We enjoyed the grounds and the atmosphere. Service is good, but food could do much better for the price. Overall great place to stop when on a long drive
I have never had to write a poor review - however I have never had such poor service in all my trips around the state for horse competitions. Booked 2 rooms at Eling Forest Winery within 2 weeks of arriving. At the beginning of the week leading up to our stay we were experiencing severe weather patterns and was concerned event would be cancelled. Rang and had to leave message to call me back. 3 days later rang again, no answer, left a message. Also sent email, as the event had been cancelled due to safety concerns. FInally on the afternoon of our arrival I receive a call wondering when I was turning up - really - you don't check your messages and you are in the hospitality/tourism/functions business. All I have been offered is that when I book again, which would then total just under $1300 I can have a discount of $180. Maybe you should improve your customer service side of the business before it's too late. Keep my full payment, you may need it.…
