Good atmosphere, good food and good service was ideal for a special family occasion. A compementary glass of sparkling rose for the celebratory couple was a nice touch.

Very tasty, innovative and fresh food with a good wine list. The service was great and we loved the open fire.

There are two restaurants at Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge - this listing is for the casual pub-style bistro. Pricing reflects the remote location but we found the food great! Good kids menu and my pulled pork burger with Asian slaw was surprisingly good. We shared two desserts between us that were also well done. Bistro has a very informal mountain... More

We ate in the Lodge restaurant as part of our group visit. It was a pre-set meal arranged by the tour. It was very good food and the service was excellent.

Had 2 dinners here with 5 people, result were the same disappointing meals. Over priced, over salted, over cooked. I asked for a medium rare steak, first it was well done by a mile, second time was rare, left a sample for the "chef", and response was ZERO. Very poor. Understand this is a resort, but any self respecting cook... More

One of the only taverns that I could find in Cradle Mountain. The inside is decked out with tables and benches on two split levels with a roaring log fire in the middle of the taven which makes in nice and toasty. On a sunny day there are loads of table and chairs outside in the beer garden, however the... More

There are not many options to eat out here...so it's always going to be pricey. The service was good, the food (burgers in particular) was excellent - but the chips were dreadful...only half cooked...so thankfully you don't get many of them...for that price though ($26) you'd expect a bit better and maybe even a tiny bit of green stuff to...

Finding somewhere to eat at Cradle Mountain is a nightmare which is why we ended up here. Everything else was booked out and the Cradle Mountain Hotel would only take guests bookings. The positives are the outside seating and thats about it. We both ordered burgers and to be honest they may have been ok if only the bread wasn't... More

After a day in the mountain air trekking about there is nothing more inviting than a pint of ale, a glass of wine and some heart food. The tavern ticks all the boxes but with a price that goes with the mountain location. Not that there is much to chose from up here but worth knowing whether to pack a... More

It was a special day, and we had a special meal! We were greeted by a friendly waitress and shown to our seat. The service continued to be attentive without being too attentive! The meal was excellent and we really enjoyed our evening.
