“Wonderful high tea in beautiful grounds”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

Went here for high tea for my mothers 70th birthday. We were all made to feel incredibly welcome especially my mother. We were placed in our own private dining room with just a single waitress who was not only very warm but also very funny. She was attentive and with her casual wit felt like one of the family not merely a staff member. Her attention to us was equally measured by the attention to detail the kitchen staff must have had in preparing our high tea. It was lovely. I can honestly say I had the best scones I have ever eaten in my life (sorry mum). They were fluffy and light with a nice crust. Yum. My only real negative would be there was more sweet than savory and most of the sweets whilst incredibly delicious were also incredibly rich. All in all this was a truly lovely experience in a beautiful setting were my mother was made to feel extra special on this special day. Thanks peppers.

“This is a really nice restaurant”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Great food, beautifully presented and attentive staff. We didn't have the degustation but everything we ordered was beautiful. Unfortunately there were some large tables that came in after us so we felt like our meal was rushed a bit but otherwise a very nice evening.

“Degustation Delight Costs”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

If you have a Luxury Escape stay at Peppers then this dinner is a taste sensation. The Pork Belly & the Duck & the Scallops were my favourites but it was all delicious. Luxury Escapes gives you $100 towards the $218 cost. Is it worth it? It was for two people so maybe. Would it be worth $218 instead of $118 with the voucher? I wouldn't pay this. The food wasn't worth all those dollars. The High Tea is part of the Deal with the Luxury Escapes package of 3 nights. If you just walked in off the street, crunchy driveway, would you pay $42 per head? Nup, not me.The dinner service was very good. The waiter knew his wines and all the tapas-like servings for the degustation. The breakfast at $20 per head was excellent buffet style. Extra on top of the accommodation package. Loaded with good breakfast stuff including pretty good coffee.

“Not Quite There”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

The Degustation menu was a great idea that did not quite live up to expectation. There appeared to be considerable delay between courses and maybe being a Tuesday they were light on for staff.
