Very nice lunch. We were curious about the caramalised vinegar and sauces for sale. The chef bought out a sample plate we bought the brown sugar balsamic vinegar. My hubby loves the beer on tap. We enjoyed the Scallops, Salmon and crab rolade, stuffed mushrooms and Garlic prawns. Very nice meal and outlook.

The food here is divine. We had the pate, goat cheese and beetroot tarts, pear and rocket salad, chorizo sausage rolls, lamb cutlets, and the bread. Plus a few bowls of the bad boy chips. Could not fault at all. The rose and over the ditch white wine were perfect with all dishes. Service was also wonderful. Definitely will return.

We stopped here for lunch on Saturday because we had eaten here a few years ago and enjoyed it. Unfortunately this visit was nowhere near as good. We had the ciabatta & olives to start with we both enjoyed that. We had ordered the lamb cutlets (4) to share, and a rocket salad for my partner and chips for me... More

After visiting Hunter Valley 2 months ago we are back for more sensational food and wine! We have started with Tatler and wow what a taste sensation. We have the family on tow this time so our choices had to be a little kid friendly so we started with the bread and warm olives followed by the bad boy chips!... More
