Recently stayed in the Hunter & ordered takeaway. Limited takeaway menu available however great selection. Easy to order, collected within 15 mins & the best pizza I've had in ages. Will definitely dine in next time we're in the Hunter!

Really enjoyed the dinner menu and it's so nice when you order a drink you get a full glass you don't mind paying $10 for a full glass. The steak was cooked to perfection Will definitely be back

Perfect meal to end a perfect trip. The food was perfect and the staff were super friendly and attentive. Some of the previous reviews baffled me slightly as they couldn't have been more wrong in my opinion. A quite varied menu with some very tough...More
