I booked a table for 5 and we travelled up from Culverden for dinner. Unfortunately when we arrived and we seated in a tight corner we realised the whole upper level was delegated to a quiz night. I wish they had told us as we could barely talk to each other across the table it was that loud. Food is... More

This place met all expectations. We ate at several places for dinner and this was by far the best value for money, exceptional service and yummy food. Meals are on the slightly smaller side but filling. The menu doesn't expand out, would be good to see some more options especially on the dessert menu. Overall absolutely loved this place would...

Cooked to perfection and the accompanied veggies and potato gratin were lovely and fresh. Wine to match was excellent to so ended up out in the back secluded... More

Nice place but the wait for the food to come out was 1hr 15mins after ordering which was way too long for family dining, over and above that before ordering we had waited 15mins for them to reconfigure a table for us which seemed a little long....but by the time the food came we had been in the place for...

A great place to go for just a drink or a meal. The menu is very good and reasonably priced. A great selection of beers and the pear cider is divine. Sit in the sun outside on the back deck. Quiz nights on Wednesday are good fun and very popular with the locals.

Steve and Jill really care about food and service and both are superb. The restaurant is set out to a very high standard and is one we will always re-visit whenever we are in Hanmer Springs. Thank you. Malcolm.
