Fantastic selection (free tastings) of locally made Cheese & Terrines. Staff are always friendly and helpful when making decisions on which Cheese to purchase. Their Binnorie Labna is unique, a must buy.

There are not many places in the Hunter where you can get a tasty light lunch. Binnorie is the one that I would always recommend to friends. It is clean, well spread out seating, quiet, with great staff and a good array of light lunches....More
