My wife and I visited here fof a 3 day break over dinner. Not only a very atmospheric restaurant and great value for money, but the staff bend over backwards ensuring the experience is second to none. We found kelly very engaging, friendly and extremely polite. We had great conversations with her and the other people working there.

We have fond memories of the night, food and country hospitality often spoken about in the Hunter but not seen in Sydney.

We'll be back and highly recommend to singles, couples and families of all ages. If in the Hunter stop by for a feed (courtesy vechile home ;) ).

Marcus and Angela.

We enjoyed ourselves near the cosy warm fire with good friendly service and a delightful meal. The choices on the menu were good and all 4 meals were well presented, hot and tasty.
All the staff we met were excellent, it seemed like they really enjoyed working there and friendly helpful attentive staff really help you enjoy such an experience. Thanks so much Alice.
Give them a call and reserve a table to make sure they are open. Their card said 'open for lunch and dinner / WED-SUN.
I thoroughly recommend the use of their free Courtesy Vehicle. We were picked up from the Vintage apartments and dropped back there, great friendly service. Thanks (Doug?) I think.

Being the only restaurant within walking distance from Pokolbin Village on a very wet night we risked the unknown. Food wise it was down to earth and good however the seating was poor and they somehow missed the insight of making up for shortcomings in table settings by being more interested in their customers otherwise I would have been inclined to be more positive.

Stopped here while on a wine tasting tour. Lovely building, warm and welcoming on a cold windy day. Food was fresh, hot and tasty, but a tad under seasoned. Food was pre ordered by the tour operator, and arrangements for split bills had been made. Would have no hesitation returning here.

Went here based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Staff were friendly and looked after us from the moment we arrived to the time we left. I loved the atmosphere of the place itself, fireplaces, a piano just warm, inviting and welcoming. We didn't have a booking and it was busy but were still accomodated, just had a drink on the lounge while we waited for a table. The food itself was fantastic, from the soup of the day, garlic bread, lamb racks, sirloin steak and the garlic mash just delicious and cooked to perfection. They even have a fire going outside for the smokers. I am only disappointed that I was too full to fit dessert in. Totally recommend you have a meal here.
