Quite a decent place. Lovely atmosphere, very relaxed and calming. Service is pleasant, with waiters always willing to have a chat. Tea is a little on the weak side, owing the the actual size of the tea pot. More loose leaf needed in such large pots! Food wise, very satisfied. The mushroom and poached eggs are flavoursome, topped off with some very crunchy kale chips. Banana pancakes are nice too, except the banana could have done with a little more ripening.

Had an excellent experience here. Very good place to visit with a group of friends. Wine selection is simply astounding! Really enjoyed the fact that biodynamic and organic wines are available. As for the food? Did not disappoint! The set course menu was great, especially the lamb, simply stellar. Also, one of the best side dishes I've ever had is provided here. Do yourself a favour and try the spicy salted potatoes. Amazing! Slight downside was the service. The sommelier was a little on the dry/sarcastic side. Maybe he didn't have a good day. Regardless, overall the visit was great.

It's all about the coffee! Really well made, no major hint on bitterness. Food is also good, albeit a little lacking in variety. Ambience is pleasant, especially the outdoor area. Definitely come visit for the coffee.

Very special boutique winery. Owners are of a Scottish heritage, which admittedly is rather odd for a winemaking business (Don't let that stop you!). However, standard of wine is exceptional! Fruit grown on the estate with some sourced from other regions in NSW. 2015 saw some awards given to the Semillon wines produced here. Friendly service at the cellar door and excellent membership benefits.

Great deli here. Bottom floor is a café/restaurant, which provides some very good coffee. Take the elevator up to the 3rd floor and you find yourself in the midst of a well stocked deli. Lots of Italian meats on offer, with an equally wide selection of cheeses. Main selling point of the deli though is the freshly made ricotta! Definitely worth checking out, have a coffee first then guy yourself some deli delicacies!

Truly some amazing steaks. The range of beef here is monumental. Cooked to perfection, with medium being simply perfect. The wines on offer compliment the meat. Prices are a tad high, but for the service and the quality of the produce it's a price you'll be willing to pay.

Excellent cellar door. Professional yet friendly service from Dave. Well versed in the wine industry and knowledgeable about the whole wine making process. Special place in the Hunter as a lot of the wines are made from fruit sourced from various regions in Australia. Very good standard of Shiraz here.
