This restaurant has an outstanding setting, in a big old stately house, overlooking a bend in the Derwent River, with terraces of lawn, garden beds and bushland spreading below you. They didn't have outside seating on the night we went, which could have been due to the high winds earlier in the day. The service was very personal (if not... More

A beautiful meal in a classic Victorian setting. Pat and Gary are good hosts and great chefs. Locally sourced food, well prepared and presented. Great for a special night out.

We have been there several times over the past years, and we have always loved the service and the food. It is very elegant and delicious in a unique setting of such an old house. They also have a very friendly cat should you choose to say hello.

highly recommend this property. Husband and wife owners who are both chefs served a delicious home cooked meal from locally sourced produce. Menus change every couple of days. Had we known, we could have stayed overnight as they provide beautifully appointed rooms with antiques and the room price includes a full cooked breakfast. Beautifully restored grand home circa 1800's. I... More

No accom in Hobart in Nov 2015 . Tynwald recommended by local overbooked Motel. Fell in love with the house at first sight and meeting with Pat and Gary who could not do enough for two old codgers, me and lame brother Gregory on our quick motoring tour of Tas. Handy in 30 minutes by excellent highway to our Hobart... More

Absolutely love this establishment. I had the Croquettes which were utterly stunning, whilst my husband had the Rhubarb Duck (also gorgeous). The frozen Lemon Meringue however was amazing & sealed the night for us. Loved it so much we're going back before Christmas to have it again. Thank you for a truly lovely evening, filled with old world charm &... More

In a word .... AMAZING. I just loved loved loved this place. First of all the house is just beautiful. A majestic 1800's restoration. It is also in an awesome location nestled into the valley with awesome views. Of course if you come here at night you won't see the surrounding countryside. But then you step,inside to a different era... More
