This is our fourth visit to Baume and the first to not get 5 stars. The food is always consistently high quality - full of flavour and reliable. However, a small change has occurred with portion sizes reducing which is a great shame.

The starter flat bread is so small that it should almost be one per person. Previously, the share meat servings had us fighting for the leftovers but now it is one serving only :-(

Even the side veggies seemed smaller.

Great staff - friendly and helpful.

We enjoyed a delicious meal this evening at Baume restaurant. It was a rainy evening but well worth heading out after an early morning flight from Melbourne and a day of golf. We were welcomed at the door with a warm smile and advised by our wait staff, on the best ways to share the food and appropriate amounts to order. We particularly enjoyed sharing the lamb and pork belly mains and sides of chat potatoes and pumpkin with delicious toasted almonds. We thank Sarah, Jamie, Louanne and Jax for being informed regarding the menu and being supportive without being invasive. We had a couple of questions and requests and nothing was a problem, an answer or solution was found. Thank you so much for a great start to our mini break.

This was our first visit to Hunter Valley and we absolutely loved it. We visited the Hunter Valley Gardens, wine farms, cheese makers and chocolatiers. We had many friendly chats and asked for recommendations for great meals and good venues - Baume came up many times. Therefore, we booked at Baume (at Lindeman's Wine Farm). Sarah looked after us - Wow, she is fantastic! She is very knowledgeable, provides excellent advice and outstanding customer service. Without a doubt she is a great credit to Baume. Since this was our first visit, Sarah provided great advice based on what meals we liked and enjoyed sharing. We shared the 6 hour slow cooked braised lamb, the honey roasted pumpkin and chat potatoes. It was tender, succulent and filled with flavour. For dessert we enjoyed Creme Brulee - always a winner.
