    Lovely location but the food and service were a little disappointing. Most of us ordered the ploughman’s lunch and considering we were at a cheese ( and chocolate ) farm we had expected at least 2 cheeses with the lunch. There was plenty of meat ( fine but not amazing ) and one smallish piece of cheese! Not the best was to advertise your products! Also, when we initially arrived it was fairly quiet, but became busy and the service dropped. We waited some time for our plates to be cleared and would have ordered dessert, but ended up buying a few take away chocolates and skipping dessert.

    Gem of a find. Last day of our 2 week adventure and it was a real highlight. The view is gorgeous, we both enjoyed our lunch, and really enjoyed our dessert :) Indy was a fun waitress and made us feel very welcome. Highly recommend

    An incredible little place. Great farm setting and a beautiful little restaurant with really friendly staff. The food was out of this world and the coffee was lovely too.

    The restaurant offers great food at good prices and with stunning views. The staff are super friendly and the added bonus is being able to buy cheeses and chocolates made on site to take home.

    Two of us had the high cheese. Delicious and plenty of cheese - the blue was divine - and the raspberry compote was a highlight for me. Chocolate selection diverse and saved the difficulty of choosing. The other two had the ploughman’s boards. Consensus was, terrific. Really good value.

    We last visited the Coal River Farm in August 2017 and were very impressed. The food was interesting and of outstanding quality, the kitchen and service staff were professional and friendly and the farm was clearly a ‘cared for’ feature. Today’s experience was disappointing by comparison. The food was good, but not great, there was not enough staff, the furniture and surrounds looked tired and the farm was practically non existent: with one sad chook and one goat all that’s left of the animals. I understand there’s probably been a huge Covid factor here, however, the whole experience was a bit lack-lustre.

    Excellent setting and service. Delicious food and wine. Acoustics slightly challenging. Fantastic opportunities for value adding with special Christmas gifts to take home. Well done ????????????

    I was really disappointed in my meal size and variety. Small and boring. And the setting was more like a cafeteria than a nice farm or vineyard. I unfortunately won’t be back.

    The girls working there today were super kind and accomodating. They went out of their way to make our day and even remade a drink when my toddler tipped it everywhere. Of course the food was excellent too.

    We really enjoyed our visit to Coal River Farm. Our meals & coffee were perfect & so were the chocolates we took home with us! The staff were so welcoming and friendly, particularly a young woman who even offered our dog water and made sure we were being taken care of. Would recommend!

    I had high cheese with some friends and it was wonderful. Great value (we left feeling very full!) and really yummy. We could choose what we wanted or they selected for us. Service was good too.

    Our visit was for a special occasion. My daughter had visited before but I hadn't. Beautiful day in a stunning setting. We had the High Cheese which was delicious. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. We'll certainly be back again.

    The staff were lovely and the food and drink was great, the only issue was they had run out of some of the cheeses we chose for the high cheese platter but the ones they did have were beautiful all the same

    Restaurant was in a nice location however, the dishes were over priced for their size and quality. Drink menu was sufficient. Probably wouldn’t go out of my way to return.

About the restaurant

Modern food with a farmy twist

It’s hard to describe what kind of food Coal River Farm dishes up, because even the faces behind this wonderful foodie venture don’t know how to explain it. The closest description is this: Modern Australian cuisine with a farmy twist. It doesn’t fit into a specific category, but that’s okay. It’s unique, and it’s theirs. Chefs take the best seasonal produce from the local Coal River Valley and turn out some modern takes on classic dishes that are simply devine. Open for breakfast and lunch, this is a fabulous daytime spot to come not only for food, but for a farmy adventure too. In addition to the restaurant Coal River produces cheese and chocolate and offers fruit picking. Don’t spend an hour here, spend a few. It’s worth it.

Best dish: open shepherds pie of slow roasted lamb in red wine, roasted leeks and green beans
