Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Passing through Hunter Valley on way to Tamworth. Had dinner here. My meal was very nice. A simple dish with good ingredients, prepared well. Just what I like. Wine and service were excellent, albeit it Sunday evenings are fairly quiet. But I really enjoyed it....Well done.More

Very good Steak type joint near Pokolbin. The set menu was good value, portions decent size. Steak slightly over done, but no big problem. Atmosphere of an English Inn meets Australian country. Decent ale as well.

This restaurant was a great find. We stayed at the Elan Chateau and the restaurant came to pick us up so we could have a drink with our meal. They also took us back which was also a great service. My husband had the steak...which was very nice and I had the sticky pork which was a starter but the portion was big enough to serve as a main. The service was nice and the ambiance cozyMore

Visited Blaxland Inn for the first time with my kids and their partners plus one baby in a pram. Found the venue very noisy but it has a nice ambience. Waitress bought our drinks and after knocking her arm against a chair spilt half a...glass of wine down my back. No apology or even acknowledgment of having done so. Asked another staff member for more napkins and they didnt care either. Is this such a regular occurrence ?? I was left cold and unimpressed. I have to say the food was delicious though. Steaks and sides perfectly prepared. The food was great but service was terrible.More

Nothing special. Overpriced average meals. Went for an anniversary dinner thinking it would be something ‘special’. A general steakhouse at premium prices. Had the pork ribs with chips and rocket/radish salad. My fiancé had the pot pie which was bitter and of tasting. Would not...go back.More

Really nice ambience. The staff were all really calm and happy and fantastic. The food was delicious and had a really nice rustic vibe. Unpretentious and fully recommended. Also have a courtesy bus to pick you up and take you home which was great. Toilets...were sparkling clean and it wasn’t rushed or they didn’t make you feel rushed. Great menu and delicious food.More

It has been many years since our last visit, so we visited for our anniversary, which no mention was made even though it was put into the booking, no worries though. The food was OK there was just nothing special. The one good thing was...the courtsey bus and the driver was very nice.More

This venue knocked it outta the park! Everything from the courtesy bus pick up to the last spoonful of desert was spot on. Every staff member was cheerful and helpful. Special shout out to Sarah, from Minto haha! Food was top notch. Concentrated menu that...they did well! Lovely wine selection and helpful suggestions.

Staff were excellent, very busy night, bit loud in outside. We had salad, vegetarian pasta, nachos. The nachos were nothing special but salad and pasta was fabulous. The crime brûlée was ok but seemed to be split.

We both had steak, I had the sirloin and my wife had the wagyu. Both were cooked as ordered and very tasty. The sides were all good, but the corn was the standout, nearly better than the steak. The service was first rate. Worth a...visitMore

Good atmosphere, friendly and efficient staff, great food and drinks - a very pleasant lunch. Recommend the chicken or the pork - both cooked to perfection and tasted great. Vegetables and mash done well.

Blaxland Inn, 2198 Broke Road, Pokolbin. Sunday Night Dinner while staying in Pokolbin. The two members of staff I spoke to were very nice and helpful. I arrived just before the restaurant opened and served my meal relatively quickly. The meals we chose were very...nice. Compliments to the Chef. Just a bit expensive, in our opinion.More

We dropped in here on a tour with the food orders rung ahead. There were few staff who seemed to be under the pump. Waited 30 mins for drinks then later got some food. Food was good when it finally arrived. We were offered a...drink and dessert which was appreciated. It seems that the staff are trying their best. But if they are that thin on the ground maybe owners need to roll up their sleeves and muck in. Or turn people away to focus on those already in the building. Due to the delays we had to miss another winery that was pre booked, therefore letting another business down.More

A little lesson in customer service wouldn’t go astray. A little too hasty in trying to get the bill paid and go home rather than asking if we required anything else.
