This place could be far better and look a lot nicer. Cafe looked run down and beers tasted average which disappointed me for blue tongue. The outside could be done far nicer with better seating areas. Food on offer was just pies etc Never mind...More

I saw this on Tripadvisor and thought it would be something different to add to our wine tour. The novelty of the beer paddles was great and a good way to taste their beers. If you take your paddle back and tell the staff which...More

Bog-standard menu with bog-standard decor and bog-standard service. It fulfilled it's function and nothing more.

The beer paddle at $15 and then lunch all seemed over priced. We went here for lunch on a wine tasting tour. The food and beer were tasty, but 3 of my taster glasses were significantly smaller than the other 2 and the $17 pizza...More

As soon as we dropped our bags off into our rooms, the first thing we did was go to the Blue Tongue Brewery and ordered a couple of paddles of beer to try. I couldn't pick which one was my favourite.

Our club organised a bus trip to the Hunter Valley recently. We originally had trouble finding somewhere which could cater for 16 people for a light lunch, some with special dietary requirements. Bluetongue Brewery Cafe turned out to be a great choice. Our seating was...More

An authentic Italian dish always starts with the best flour, garden fresh tomatoes, and the best quality local produce. Then of course matched to a great wine. Sound simple ... We make all our own pasta and sauces from scratch , in the traditional Italian way. Our restaurant also features a glass fronted air-conditioned wine cellar where we have wines from all over the world including some rare vintage wines from local private cellars.
