The setting, in rural NSW, 20 minutes from Canberra, was idyllic in a restaurant that created a lovely homestead backdrop with rural outlook. I was impressed with the noise baffles in the ceiling which meant you were able to have a decent conversation without shouting...More

Poacher’s Pantry, about 10km off the Barton Highway, is part of a working farm and vineyard. Pleasant spacious dining room with additional outside seating areas. Food offerings are basically sharing plates - we had three (charcuterie, seafood and vegetables), all of which were good. The...More
