This time we visited during Easter and the restaurant offered takeaway fish and chips plus coffee. The fish and homemade chips were absolutely amazing and their tartare sauce was so tasty. Apparently this food is offered over long weekends/holidays and although quite expensive is still well worth it. Meals at the restaurant is also worth visiting. Wandering around the grounds, admiring "Dot's Castle" and a fantastic playground for the children. Also check out the shops!

I am writing this as it may be helpful to others. We are a group of eight who planned to meet up and enjoy the Riverstone Kitchen dining experience. We looked at the website and saw that we needed to book ahead and that on Easter Monday the only option available to book was afternoon tea. We went ahead and booked this for 2.30pm for the eight of us. We had our booking confirmed and when we arrived there was our table ready. HOWEVER Booking for afternoon tea at Riverstone only means that you are reserving a table after lunch time and can order anything from the limited afternoon menu. We were disappointed as we had expected an English afternoon tea which is a set meal of sandwiches, scones and cakes. Yes of course we were able to order from the menu and some ordered a full meal of fish and chips, others soup or three of us just ordered a cake. All the food was great but it did not give us a chance to sample many items and was not the communal meal I had hoped for.

Arrived for breakfast and the place was very busy but staff were quick and it didn't take long for our order to arrive. Food was tasty. Good to check out all the shop items; so much to look at. Gardens are great with all the fresh vege for the kitchen and of course Dot's castle surrounded by a moat; the dream home Dot and her husband have built. ❤

Stopped in for lunch on trip South and were not disappointed. Had heard a lot about it over the years but never had the chance to actually stop. Great food - pretty noisy cafe atmosphere on the day we visited - but great food and a good selection on offer!
