Friendly and attentive service. Great steak. The chargrilled eye fillet with a side of field mushrooms and jalapeño Parmesan mash was outstanding. Nice selection of beer and wine too.

Description
Enjoy delicious cuisine at the vibrant & architecturally designed Workshop Kitchen. Open for breakfast, lunch & dinner every day of the year from 6.30am until late. All seasonal menus are created by Ben Davies, a three times recipient of a Michelin star & focus on fresh local New England produce - enough reason to visit! The restaurant's outstanding wine list received a 2 Glass rating in Australia's 2017 Wine List of the Year Awards - the first restaurant in the region to ever receive this accolade. A wood fired oven & grill are at the heart of The Workshop Kitchen - both are fired up daily with the finest Pilliga Western Red Ironbark which imparts a unique smoked flavour. Be sure to sample local premium cuts of meat in the ‘From the Grill’ menu including Jack's Creek Beef - two time winner of the World's Best Steak. The Workshop Kitchen is a proud recipient of a 2018 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.
