Lovely friendly and helpful waitress. 4 of us ate dinner and we couldn't fault the meal. On another visit we would make sure to return. The sirloin steaks were ordered at medium rare and were excellent. The serving for the steaks and the prawns were of generous proportions. The steaks do not come with sides so that needs to be...

The food was enjoyable and the staff pleasant and attentive. The kids menu had enough choices to please the kids different tastes and the location between our hotel and the Hunter Valley Gardens was perfect.

We always eat once a year at The Cellar. Usually it's good but when we visited two weeks ago the food was terrible. The Angus steak was over cooked and sinewy and the seafood dish was Luke warm and rubbery. Complete disappointment. We came back the next day and left a polite note to let them know with our details... More

You must like garlic but crispy, buttery and flavorful Entrees/Mains - my friend and I both wanted to... More

My husband and I ate dinner here on the 2nd of November. We spent all day on a winery tour and wanted something special to end our already perfect day. This place did not disappoint. The food were a generous size. The food was delightful and full of flavour. We definitely recommend this to everyone.
