Visited from newcastle and arranged to dine here for my wife's birthday and we were very impressed
Food was absolutely fantastic and the Owner went out of his way to make us feel completely at home and could not get over the friendliness of all staff
Reccomend this restaurant completely
We even had a small child with us and owner gave us his tablet to entertain him
Could not be more impressed
Very happy indeed

My wife and I have been dining at the fireside inn for about 15 years. It holds a special place in our both our families. Both sets of parents held their wedding receptions here during the 1940s.

The food is great, the waitress was lovely, but the new American owner is not suited to the service industry.

He managed to escalate a minor matter (of his making) into a major issue in front of everyone, when we went to pay.

Unfortunately we won't be back, We used to love this restaurant when we visited goulburn.

My partner and I stopped here on the drive back to Sydney. The service was terrible. The American owner was very cold in his manner, bordering on rude. He seemed depressed, like he didn't want to be there! No smile, no pleasantries, no hello on arrival or goodbye on departure. Food was nice, not amazing. Purely based on the service however, we will not be back. Disappointing considering the cute style and cosy atmosphere of restaurant and our high expectations.

When you're after something a bit special, or want a quiet night to celebrate a birthday or an anniversary, this is my favourite.
The meals are always excellent and the dining is just that little bit special. I love it.

This quaint restaurant is set back and off the main road opposite a park, so it is quiet with plenty of space and yet a cosy ambience. The pork belly and chateaubriand were perfectly cooked and generous in size. If you love something sweet try the Piglet Plate!
