We will definitely return. Service and food was exceptional but we did think it lacked a little atmosphere. Missing some soft music in the background . We thought could help drown out people’s conversations and maybe a candle on the table would of been nice to create a nice ambience. Look forward to coming back.

My friends and I all agreed that Babbingtons was the best venue we have had for our luncheon get-togethers in a long time. The food was lovely and the service excellent.

About Babbingtons Bar & Grill

The babble about Babbingtons The star restaurant at the Best Western Plus Apollo International Hotel Newcastle, Babbingtons Bar & Grill is not just your average hotel diner. Sitting on the side of Pacific Highway in Charlestown, it’s probably the last place you’d expect to find a fine-dining restaurant. But it’s well worth the stop. In fact, people come from far and wide just to sample Executive Chef Sam Beatty's seasonal menus. With over 16 years' experience in the hospitality industry this New Zealand born chef cooks with from the heart, stating that 'food doesn't need to be complicated, [it's] a process that begins with premium ingredients, sourcing the best of what is available locally and seasonally, and then focusing on flavour'. Be sure to sample Sam's signature dishes (marked in the menu with a chef's hat), and if you order two courses of his signature dishes you'll receive a complimentary glass of Wild Oats wine to enjoy with your main meal. Hotel guests are also in for a treat – Babbingtons offers an equally incredible breakfast menu that you can even have delivered to your room for the ultimate breakfast in bed. Best dish: any of Sam's signature dishes
