We ate here with our kids - and despite being a little anxious to start with the staff made us feel welcome, were great with our kids, and the food was great. The menu options were outstanding, and everything was well balanced. Would recommend this to anyone else.

we had been eating all day and weren't starving so when we mentioned we wanted to share 2 mains and 2 salads between 3 of us, they were happy to accommodate us, giving us a plate each before serving the meals in the middle of the table. Great service, beautiful food!

We ate here our last night in the Hunters and weren't disappointed. The food was of outstanding quality you could tell that the chef takes great pride in the produce he uses. The flavours were also amazing. The favourites on our table were Yorkshire Pudding with Wagyu Skirt and horseradish, spring peas buffalo mozzarella crispy egg and truffle. If you... More

We have been here many times over the years and also have enjoyed their food at the outdoor concerts held in the Hunter Valley. On both counts they serve lovely fresh and tasty food. We were 2 couples on a Monday night and the place was half full. The service was great and attentive. To start we had the house... More

They had 5 waitresses working. I almost always had to call waitresses over to place orders. They were never attentive. They forgot one of our orders Also I ordered what i believed to be the tastiest item on the menu. It was bland. The drinks were ok, the interior was ok, prices ok. So 3 star

Old favourite! Nice location, relaxing venue, extensive menu & great wine list. The service is casual but attentive. Try the Tassie hanger steak, it is excellent!

We ate here prior to seeing the Christmas Lights at the nearby gardens. Even on a Monday night the restaurant was quite busy. My entrée was the pork and veal terrine and for mains I had steak and chips with anchovy butter. The steak was just so tender and there were heaps of chips. Wines by the glass were very... More
