    Lovely evening staff made me feel special- 80th birthday- with welcoming champagne and lady from Canada was most attentive and obliging. As we are locals we hope to see you more now that Covid seems to have settled down.

    The staff was not welcoming and we have waited for a long time for someone to bring the EFTPOS machine to the table after the meal. The restaurant has a great view!

    Loved it, it was a set menu for new year's day, which wasn't ideal for us, but the individual quality of the food provided was impeccable. Well presented and thought out menu, even though the dishes were not things I would have picked of a normal menu however, we tried them all and thoroughly enjoyed them. Staff were very attentive and professional and gave us plenty of space and time to enjoy the lovely afternoon lunch. Would love to go back and try some other dishes on the regular menu. Definitely one to remember and will be back.

    What a wonderful dining experience! We rated it in our top ten dining experiences in our life and that includes quite a few Michelin starred restaurants. Each of the chef’s selection dishes was prepared thoughtfully and artfully. There was a great combination of local produce flavours. Probably the best tasting chicken dish we have had. Also a delicious combination of local wines. Outstanding service and a great life experience.

    This restaurant and the meal were both spectacular primarily as a result of the efforts of the team that cared for us. Each dish was delivered with pride, perfect presentation and an explanation. We went out for a quiet celebration and we could not have had a better evening of unrushed quality dining.

    Pricey but each offering from cocktail to after dessert treat is innovative, surprising and tasty. Only caveat is the plant based menu is not actually vegan, they use dairy and honey.

    After reading all the reviews I was very excited to dine here. Unfortunately we were all a bit disappointed. Out of the 5 courses, there was only one which was a standout (the main meat dish) and we all agreed it would have been nice if it was a slightly larger serve. I found the mark up on the Hunter Valley wines we ordered to be ridiculous given we were in the region (we are talking around a 3 x mark up which I think is way too much). For the cost, I would not recommend. It was good but not great and I have had much better meals elsewhere in the Hunter for a fraction of the price.

    Fantastic and creative food. Great service and simply wonderful service. This is how fine dining should be done - with a smile. Staff so kindly helped me out because I had forgotten to bring candles to celebrate my father's birthday. They brought out a chocolate plate after dessert with four beautifully made chocolates with Happy Birthday written on a plate. I'm most grateful that you made our time in the Hunter so very special. I will definitely be coming back. Heartfelt thanks again!
