New Chef since our last visit, AMAZING food. The steak melted in your mouth. Unique combination of ingredients. Went back the next night to have the items we didn't before. Believe this to be one of the best in the Hunter!

“Truly excellent and highly recommended”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

We stayed at Tuscany Wine Estate Resort and so dined here two nights in succession, trying four entrees, four mains, two desserts and a cheese platter. We also had breakfasts two mornings.

The venue itself is comfortable and well set-up, tables are far enough apart to allow movement for staff and patrons and allows for private conversation. The view over the vineyards and to the mountain ridge is gorgeous.

Our evening meals featured food that was innovative and beautifully presented. We couldn't fault the food. Service was attentive without being intrusive - over the course of the two nights, we had some service from a number of good waitstaff. We observed that, in the main, the waitstaff were well trained and efficient. They seemed to be engaged with their customers and conversed in a knowledgeable way about the area and its attractions. We were principally looked after on both nights by Lauren and thoroughly commend her service.

Breakfast was nothing outstanding. The usual buffet-style offerings with what seems to be almost mandatory half-cold bacon. Disappointed that most of the fruit on offer was tinned rather than fresh and that there was no fresh juice available.

“Decent food for the price.”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

We opted for the Foodie's Weekend Getaway package which included B&B as well as a 4 course dinner w. cheese platter, wine & coffee/tea. Was worth the money! Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating.

“Delicious food and the views and breathtaking!”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

I was a little unsure about this restaurant having read some recent reviews but decided to try it anyway and am so pleased that I did. We came here for my partners birthday and had an absolutely lovely meal. The view from the tables outside was fantastic and service from the staff was great, our meals were reasonably prompt and the waitress gave us some good suggestions on our meals. The wine list could have been a little more extensive for wines by the glass. Overall a fantastic spot for dinner

“Pleasant Restaurant”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Four of us dined at The Mill on our first evening staying in the Hunter Valley. I booked ahead as it was holiday time but the restaurant was not crowded. It has a fairly casual atmosphere. We had a choice of sitting inside or on the verandah (which has lovely vineyeard views) and chose inside as it was a very hot day. The service was friendly and attentive. Our table had a rocky leg but the waitress immediately fixed it up. There were only a couple of choices for vegetarians but we enjoyed most of the meal and some nice wine and the food was well presented. One dish of tofu was a bit of a miss- a large slab with not very good texture and flavour but the rest of the dishes, including dessert were delicious.
