I have been here many times, for high tea, I had my son's first birthday party here and my 40th birthday party. It is a beautiful place, the staff are so friendly and helpful, the food is delicious and the prices are very reasonable. It...has a wonderful Australian heritage feel and the marquee is fantastic, you can decorate it however you like. I definitely recommend this place to anyone.More

Our High Tea Birthday celebration at Lachlan’s was a wonderful experience. It was a lovely venue and Martin and his team were extremely efficient and attentive to all the guest’s requirements. The High Tea Menu was very well prepared and delicious. The savouries, scones and...small cakes were scrumptious . The drinks and tea included in the High Tea package was very plentiful and well enjoyed by all. Martin and his team went out of their way to accommodate everyone’s dietary needs effortlessly. Our guests were very impressed with the venue, the layout of the function room and the table setting together with the beautiful grounds and surroundings. A special Thank you to Martin who also went the extra mile to assist with technology and the sound system. Well done Martin and his team at Lachlan’s! All the best for the future.More

My dear Mum passed away a year ago. COVID-19 meant we were unable to come together to say our farewells and celebrate her life. On the first anniversary we finally came together at an elegant yet warm luncheon for family & friends at Lachlan's Old...Government House. Martin was wonderful in helping to organise the event; even personalising the menus. Everything was perfect from the room setting to the delicious food and the attentive service of Phillip and the other staff. A very big thank you to you and all the staff at Lachlans. I know Mum would have approved. A mix of elegance with the linen tablecloth and napkins (the purple was the perfect choice); the private dining room was so good for us to sit and remember our stories but also warm and welcoming for our small group. Again, thank you for helping us to make this such a special occasion. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lachlans to anyone wanting a special venue for a special occasion.More

High Tea on the terrace at Lachlan's was perfect. The food is plentiful and first class and is complemented by the setting inside the courtyard at Old Government House. Just make sure you bring an appetite.

Had disastrous experience late September 2020 with 4 school friends to celebrate 65 years since finishing Leaving Certificate. Only gave one start rating. Returned 20th November for High Tea which was amazing. So much delicious food, cool juices & a glass of champagneeach. Thank you...Martin for gift voucher to help make up for our previous bad experience. This time it was a truly remarkable experience for our special day, our 65 years celebration.More

A very good experience that had the potential to be fantastic, if it wasn't of the heat wave. Unfortunately the old air conditioning unit did not keep the room cool enough. The room was beautiful and the service was excellent.
