Went for drinks on our first evening in The Hunter - the cocktails were VERY well made and the service was great. We were so impressed we went back the following afternoon and stayed until the staff reluctently through us out. The staff, drinks, pizza's and other people were all great value and we had lots of fun dancing and mixing with everyone. Four days later back in Sydney I realised I had left something in the bar and when I called thinking there would be no chance of getting it back, not only did Cameron have it but happily offered to send it back to me! Sydney bars could learn a lot from that kind of service and I look forward to enjoing Goldfish's hospitality and cocktails again very soon.

Went with 3 friends when first arrived in the hunter on a hot day in jan, had gin and tonics on the veranda outside, great view of the tempura two vineyard at sunset, great choice of spirits with at least 4 gins mentioned, was a quiet Monday so bartender who knew what he was talking about spent time chatting, atmosphere was great, went back the next day and had another great time with different bartende, and he was as good as the day before, so obviously consistent

Went to goldfish for New Year's Eve.
With a group of 7 expecting to have a amazing night being locals who work in the industry our selfs we know how great a night out here can be.
There was no atmospher, music was boring.
They stopped serving drinks at 11:30 which would of been fine if they had let us know so we could at least get one last drink to have at 12 o'clock.
They turned the lights on at 11:45 and being in the industry we got the hint that they wanted us out.
Won't make the mistake of going back next year and will be sure to pass it on to anyone that asks where they should go for New Years

Family gathering. Pizzas all round. Great toppings, and the limited range are all excellent for taste and innovation. Good selection of wines, beers and cocktails. Staff friendly and alert. Coupled with a balmy Hunter Valley evening, it was pleasant and relaxing. We had our 9 year old granddaughter with us and the staff made her feel welcome as well. Well done guys!

Brilliant little melbounre-styled cigar bar... lovely cocktail drink, friendly waiters, but sadly not much atmosphere.

Perhaps we came too early!

Looked like a wonderful spot for sunset and they do pizzas too. We'll come again.
