We were lucky enough to enjoy the wine and dine package at the Powerhouse Hotel, which included a dinner at The Workshop Kitchen. This was a wonderful experience we had the sirloin steak which was delicious. The service team was very polite and attentive to...all our needs, especially Syan, which he made our experience even better. We would like to thank the team at the Powerhouse/The Workshop kitchen for making our short getaway so wonderful.More

A restaurant worthy of any great city, comfortable, great food, great wines, really good service. I ordered my steak blue and it was perfect, was even asked if I wanted warm or cold blue, unbelievable, never get asked this in Melbourne. Steak was fantastic, cut...it with a spoon, full of flavour and worth every penny. My wife had the squid entree as a main, not the right decision, but not the foods fault, just didn’t work with the pineapple in it. The affogato was delicious and in all a great meal. Tamworth should be proud to have a restaurant of this quality.More

Firstly, the Covid check in was handled professionally and we were seated very quickly. They were very organised in this regard. Water was bought to the table, coffee order taken quickly followed by breakfast order. Food arrived promptly. I had the eggs benedict which was...okay, it wasn’t the nicest I’ve ever had, but it was still nice. My mother had the avocado smash and said it was really good. Staff were friendly. All in all, an enjoyable breakfast and I would return. I am very keen to try the dinner menu soon.More

Staying overnight at The Powerhouse we took the easy option to walk from our room to The Workshop Kitchen at the hotel, having made our table booking when checking in. The booking was a great idea, as we found the restaurant was full at our...booked time, where all staff applied the COVID rules without any fuss. Apart from an enjoyable entrée, we ordered the 'Warm smoked duck breast' and the 'Pepper crusted kangaroo fillets' as our main meals, with some excellent wines by the glass to match. Great food and service, what else can you ask for! Well a current PGR card helps reduce the overall price a whisker, when the account arrives.More
