We haven't been to lunch for a while so we thought we would go again. It was a Thursday and most tables were empty. This should have been an indication of what was to come I suppose. A glass of bubbles came in at low...More

Don't forget this is a training college for the hospitality industry so therefore service may be a little slower than normal but the experience and the food is fabulous. Fantastic wine selection showcasing many of Tassie's finest. Choice of three entrees, main and desert. Mains...More

First visit back to Drysdale in some years & left me wondering why it had taken us so long between visits as our earlier visits had always been most enjoyable. The welcome was very assured & we were quickly settled at our table with water...More
