Quality food and pretty good (most of menu) prices current owners are very experienced and this shows in presentation. Although location can be a bit on display with the movies and bowling alley right next door it isn't exactly cosy.

thank you for your comments, we only buy the best of product, which does cost that bit more and really proud of the comments from the guests, who really loving being able to have dinner or a fresh tasty snack or drink on the way to the cinema, theatre and entertainment complex, a little bit cosmopolitan and delightful, soft and comfortable chairs and some show stopper beverages, with full under cover parking.
I know on my night off, I even like to pop in before or after the show, with bonus of only having to park once in the all weather under cover parking. We have so many great comments on the fresh comfort food and how nice it is to relax by candle light, away from the hustle & bustle of main street traffic.
It still amazes me after all these years striving in this great industry to bring something different for our wonderful guests, just how kicked back and relaxed they are as they stay into the night savouring the atmospere and finishing on what they have termed, to die for desserts and real hot chocolate and coffees. We are still passionate after many years about bringing true paddock to the plate wining & dining experience that is rare these days. with the standard packaged product seen these days. many thanks, keep on dining and celerbating the abundance of great Australian produce.

We had a nice meal and reasonable service but were disappointed given our high expectations based on previous reviews here.

The staff were trying hard to please but couldn't answer questions regarding the years of the wines on offer and our waiter was not very professional.

The atmosphere is ok but it is located inside a shopping centre near the cinema - odd location for a quite expensive restaurant.

The food was decent and servings were large.

Wow. We have owned restaurants in many different sites over the years and never had one right in the centre of town before, even with under cover parking, so absolutely love the site and have so many wonderful guests that believe its a great service to be able to eat fresh; or have a Steak, or beverage when going to a show.

It is agreed that there is a very extensive amount of wine available and displayed on a massive wine wall for selection. I have worked all over the world including the London Savoy, and live food and wine with a passion and honestly i need to defend my new team member on knowing every wine year, I guess if we didn't employ new people we wouldnt have any service at all. We are trying to run a nice provincial (rural) cafe restaurant that offers good freshly prepared product and friendly service, with no pretense so our guest feel more relaxed and enjoy the country attmosphere. So my hope is he was friendly, attentive and was really striving to please.
thank you

The restaurant is very nice and uper class for Tamworth. The service was good but it took them while to come and serve us first. From 3 meals two where perfect. Third meal on second atempt was great. Over all we would go back to dine there. However for the price we paid i expexted fantastic experience there is room for improvement...

We just have to say how much we love The Ritz, the menu is always fun and different. The latest creation by the team is a parcel with prawns and salmon hidden inside, the plate presentation is first class and the combination of flavours refreshing and modern. Love the wine selection and contempory feel. After MANY visits we have declared this is our favourite place to eat in Tamworth!

thank you so much for your comments, we are really trying to bring something a little different to Tamworth. We know it won't be everyones cup of tea, but it is so good to hear how much you enjoyed the experience and understand the subtle flavours and freshness of old fashioned slow cooked recipes with a twist. Our team are striving to be the house of hospitality with a world of flavours. Thank you
