Our party of four adults had a fabulous evening meal here. We each had a main while only the two men in the group had room for dessert. The meal was impeccably presented and offered great value for money in an inviting environment.

Great choice on the menu and good choice of wines either by glass or bottle. The staff is very helpful and friendly and in the winter (if you wish) you can sit by the open central fire.

we came for dessert and it was lovely. This restuarant is in the heart of Hunter Valley Gardens with a cosy fire burning in the middle of the sandstone restaurant. A lovely atmosphere

Stopped here for lunch. The restaurant was nice & warm inside. I had a steak for lunch which I enjoyed immensely. The staff were very friendly & informative. A great place to stop off for lunch during a visit to the Hunter Valley.

My husband chose this restaurant from Trip Advisor reviews and it did not disapoint. The duck deserves its reputation and my lamb rump was red and delicious. Was very surprised to receive dessert with a candle and "happy birthday" in chocolate display across the plate

This ultra-popular restaurant (especially with locals who love a long lunch here) serves appetising Mediterranean meals in a relaxed, inviting space. It has a great outdoor courtyard, surrounded by wisteria, with tables shaded by large umbrellas and inside there’s a huge open fireplace in the centre of the room, surrounded by crisp, white-clothed tables and indoor gardens. Owner/chef Andy Wright offers a seasonal menu using the best Australian produce with regulars returning for popular á la carte dishes like pan-fried barramundi and eight-hour slow-braised Milly Hill lamb or the signature dish – whole suckling pig roast (48 hours’ notice required).
