Just finished dining at the Workshop Kitchen in Tamworth. Had the best eye fillet steak. Cooked as requested. Steak was tender and delicious. Service was excellent. Great place to dine.

My family and I enjoyed dinner here - a warm and welcoming atmosphere in the restaurant; the food and presentation was outstanding; service from Kieran and his colleagues was likewise very welcoming, highly efficient and helpful. Overall a first class meal in a great restaurant.

Stayed in the motel overnight (lovely accommodation) and had dinner at the Workshop Kitchen. Tried the new menu and both the Swordfish and Snapper fillet meals were excellent. Service very attentive without being OTT. Would highly recommend.

We enjoyed delicious, well-presented food and attentive service. Good selection of wine and beer. On the pricey side but we arrived late and they were more than happy to host us.

The menu is ambitious and priced accordingly. However, they are aiming to do something more than what's regularly on offer in Tamworth. With a little more tweaking, I think they will be very good. The wine list's local offerings are great. Highly recommend the Toppers...More

Description
Enjoy delicious cuisine at the vibrant & architecturally designed Workshop Kitchen. Open for breakfast, lunch & dinner every day of the year from 6.30am until late. All seasonal menus are created by Ben Davies, a three times recipient of a Michelin star & focus on fresh local New England produce - enough reason to visit! The restaurant's outstanding wine list received a 2 Glass rating in Australia's 2017 Wine List of the Year Awards - the first restaurant in the region to ever receive this accolade. A wood fired oven & grill are at the heart of The Workshop Kitchen - both are fired up daily with the finest Pilliga Western Red Ironbark which imparts a unique smoked flavour. Be sure to sample local premium cuts of meat in the ‘From the Grill’ menu including Jack's Creek Beef - two time winner of the World's Best Steak. The Workshop Kitchen is a proud recipient of a 2018 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.
