Ashcrofts do breakfast, lunch & dinner. How they manage that & maintain an excellent level of food quality & service is a miracle. The dishes are fresh, tasty & creative. The table service friendly & efficient. Definitely worth a visit.

We had a wonderful meal. The pork belly and Gruyere/pear entree's were yum. We followed on with the Lamb. Double yum!! Unfortunately didn't have any room for desert but as they were going past - they looked delicious. Couldn't fault the service.

We ate at this great bistro mid week. It was not crowded. It was unpretentious in decor, but not in food presentation. The food appeared to,be sourced locally and the servings generous.. The service was excellent. I'd go back there any time

Came here for lunch on Sunday since we came here when it was a 1-hat restaurant many years ago and were extremely impressed. I knew the fine dining format has been replaced by a more casual and bistro feel, however, I never anticipated the quality of the food to have deteriorated so far! Service was extremely slow. It was impossible... More

I had dinner her with three friends recently. The restaurant was nearly full on a Thursday night in frigid weather. I think that's a sign of greatness. I'm not sure if the maitre de was also the owner but he did have a great live if the place. He was friendly yet professional and was the perfect host with great... More

My partner and I had dinner here on a Saturday night in June. We had made a booking to ensure we got a table, as I'd been told the restaurant is popular. We arrived on time and were offered complementary bread, which was delicious. We both opted to order mains and have a side. I ordered gnocchi with a side... More

Please do yourself a favour & visit this restaurant. We would even drive here from Sydney just to experience this beautiful food. We had dinner here. I had the parmesan & herb gnocchi, in a word amazing, the flavours were to die for. My partner had the snapper, the perfect mix of crusty on the outside & moist in the... More

My partner & I visited Ashcrofts for breakfast and we cannot fault a single thing. The cafe is beautifully decorated, service was fast & very friendly and the food was just exquisite. My partner had the ricotta hotcakes which were outstanding, so moist and fluffy, and I had the poached eggs on the best sourdough bread I've ever tasted. Definitely... More

We had the salmon eggs benedict that other reviewers have raved about. The cold smoked salmon was perfect and very yummy with the poached egg and hollandaise sauce! Coffee was also good. Great original photos on the walls of famous people, mick Jagger, slim dusty and col joye to name a few.
