My partner and I had dinner at The Cellar on the first night of our Hunter Valley trip. Despite a slightly rocky start (the martini had far too much vermouth and was a golden colour), the service was attentive and polite, and the food was amazing. We ordered off the grill menu (rib eye with peppercorn sauce for him, spatchcock with aioli for me) and added two sides (cauliflower cheese and roasted kipfler potatoes), and it was on par with dining in Sydney. The dessert, however, was the true masterpiece - strawberry and rose marshmallows with pistachio ice cream, saffron honey, barberries and Persian fairy floss. We will definitely be returning on our next trip to the Hunter Valley!

We had the quail and scallops for entree and the tortellini and duck for mains. All four dishes where amazing. Amazing flavour combinations and fresh ingredients that seem to jump off the plate.

We had a lovely long lunch at the Cellar earlier this week. The food was divine, all four on our table thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We each ordered a morsel and main and felt like that was an ideal amount. While it has elements of a fine dining restaurant, the Cellar feels quite casual and laid back. The menu prices are expensive ($39 for a main) but it is the Hunter and the food was beautifully cooked and presented. Service was quite slow and at times we waited over 10 minutes for a drink but the staff were always friendly and polite. The restaurant is in a handy location at the front of Hunter Valley Gardens so made a great stop off between wineries.
