Loved our Father's Day Lunch - the food was spectacular! Can sit outside or inside - on this occasion with my elderly parents we sat inside - but think the ambiance would have been better outside. Overall, a stunning experience - thank you The Gates.

A great find in The Hunter - absolutely delicious food and wine. Very nice service and lovely views of the surroundings. We are looking forward to going back. The steak was amazing and bombe alaska dessert worth the drive from Sydney!
Thank you Alison for all the 10 out of 10s. Its wonderful to ready your experience was great and that you really enjoyed the Caramel Bombe Alaska. The Butterscotch Ice-Cream and Salted Caramel Sauce are so delicious. We look forward to welcoming you back to enjoy another Bombe Alaska.

Viel reuze mee. Heel vriendelijke bediening, veel keuze op menu en lekkere dingen. The steak tartare with the 'golden egg' is a must-to-taste on the menu ! Seriously ! I happen to be very fond of the dish, but have never seen it prepared like this. Even if it is normally not your favorite dish, give this one a try ! You will not regret it. Another one of my favourites on the menu : the hiromasa kingfish in a soy cream chive broth ! I seriously need to come back to taste their other dishes ! All accompanied by an excellent riseling. We had dinner and dined inside, but I can imagine it would be brilliant to sit outside on a nice summer's day...... Lekkere wijn en redelijk gezellig. Goeie vondst.
