Was really looking forward to visiting blue tongue brewery but was so disappointed. The staff were so unfriendly that they were bordering on rude. Drinks were expensive. We quickly left without staying to lunch as planned.

Loved the beer paddles, but the food was a bit industrial. Having said that it was exactly what we needed to soak up the beer. There were kangaroos there too! We loved the beers, but the pilsner and the light beers were probably my favourites.

This was our first port of call on our Hunter Valley. We had a light lunch with a cold beer to wash it down. Unfortunately the place was overun with day trippers from Sydney so we were glad to get out of there.

You can eat, you can drink, you can sample. Personally, like like coming here around lunch time. Good time to take a break from the wineries, have a bit to eat, and try a Blue Tongue sampler paddle.

Well worn outdoor area, not a bad offer for the $15 paddle of beer with the free middie. The food was decent for pub fare. Overall a place to bring kids but don't expect top notch food.

My brother and I were keen to taste the Semillons The Hunter is famous for and Nathan was superb. He was intuitive and obliging and as such, was a great ambassador for the company.

Rubbish decor and underwhelming service. Enjoyed my beer tasting paddle, and had a pleasant enough afternoon sitting outside in the spring-time sun.

An authentic Italian dish always starts with the best flour, garden fresh tomatoes, and the best quality local produce. Then of course matched to a great wine. Sound simple ... We make all our own pasta and sauces from scratch , in the traditional Italian way. Our restaurant also features a glass fronted air-conditioned wine cellar where we have wines from all over the world including some rare vintage wines from local private cellars.
