This is a nice restaurant. We have eaten here on several occasions and never had a bad meal or experience. Lovely atmosphere and very nice for a large group. Will definitely be back again.

We sat outside on a warm evening in December, and were treated to excellent service, and a great meal. Scallops for starters and steak for main with an excellent local wine. There was a party going on at the same time, but the staff easily catered for everyone. Fabulous meal.

Good food and reasonable portion size in a very convenient location in the Hunter Valley Gardens shopping area. Staff are very efficient and friendly. The ambiance is also very good with appropriate use of greenage. I Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Recent visit to the hunter region saw us visit the cellar once again. We like the new style of grill menu and enjoyed some of the nibbles available to start with rather than ordering entrees. One of our guests had a special of local figs which were just divine! The meats that each of us ordered were cooked really well (we found out the chef/owner was cooking that day so no wonder). The staff were very friendly (although could do with a little polish - but nonetheless the friendliness made up for it and made us feel at home). We sat in the courtyard so cannot comment on the interiors although they looked quite simple as I passed through for the toilet / understated. Will def be back and def recommend to friends visiting the area

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!
