Had a great weekend hiking in the mountains. A couple of walking guides highlighted this place as a great stop off for walker's refreshments so we planned our walk accordingly. Arrived to be told by a very frosty front of house lady that they had a private function on and could not serve us. Looks like the menu is good... More

Had lunch at this venue over the weekend. Nice location, decent venues and staff were good but the fusion menu was not the best. This sometimes happens when a restaurant gets "too creative" and tries to be unique. Sometimes this backfires - as it does in this case and this is unfortunate as aside from the good service and location,... More

Every dish we tasted was excellent. Asked the owner to pass on our compliments to the chef. Told us she would let her son know. Proud mum, rightly so!

We stumbled in here for lunch after walking for about 3 hours. Staff were friendly and helpful - even offered to refill our water bottles when we were leaving to recommence our walk. We just had a light lunch but it was delicious and exactly what we needed. The lunchtime crowd was not all walkers by any means - the... More

We had a picture perfect wedding at Solitary. Organisation was easy, Lynn took care of everything including set up on the day. We paid a small additional fee to have our ceremony on the lawn. It was simple and elegant with a beautiful clear view of the valley beyond. We followed it with drinks and canapés on the lawn and... More

Turned up Saturday night at short notice and got a table, the staff were so helpful and on the ball. The food looked amazing and was matched by the excellent flavours. It was a feast for the eye. Thank you to the staff

We chose to eat here based on other reviews, but were a little disappointed by the service and the expensive cost of the dishes. Solitary has stunning views over the valley, but when we asked if our party of 3 could sit by the window, we were told all those tables were reserved, even though some never had diners for... More

Had a superb dinner at Solitary. Food, especially the fillet of beef, was cooked by Sebastian, Son and Head Chef running it with the help of his Parents, was exactly as requested, pink and melted in the mouth. Lynn, his Mother, helped in the dining room, and was efficient, delightful and kind. This is Family run Restaurant that ranks up... More
