We chose Chez Pok for a baby shower / birthday high tea for 13 ladies. Our waitress Sarah took care of everything and really made sure our experience was memorably amazing! The Chef's even fixed a birthday cake we made that melted on the drive! The food for the high tea was incredible!!! We could not eat it all and... More

Seriously, my husband and I both love and appreciate good food, so we looked forward to eating here during our Hunter Valley wine tour. The meal started with ordering wine (we chose a Tyrell's Pinot noir since we did not stop at that winery). It was quite good and smooth. Then from the kitchen we received a sampler plate of... More

We had dinner and breakfast at Chez Pok as part of an overnight stay at the Guest House. Both were wonderful meals with great service. I understand it is under new management so if you haven't tried it for a while, I would recommend trying it again.

The restaurant surroundings were nice & unfortunately the weather was a little cool to sit on the verandah. The service was excellent especially when I wanted food without garlic, the waitress came back after checking with the chef advising which items had garlic in it unfortunately they nearly all did but the chef provided us with a lovely meal minus...

High tea here on the verandah is in such a beautiful setting, but the other parts of the high tea are a little lacking. The staff were friendly, but service was slow. The tea was ordered but not server until at least 30 minutes after the food was served, we had to ask for extra milk, and staff did not... More

Since the new change of ownership this restaurant experienced a positive change. The food is delicious! Service is exception and the wine list is presented very well. We relaxed in the guest lounge prior to our dinner with a few cocktails. Then we sat outside on the verandah for dinner watching the kangaroos lounge around on the lawn just meters... More

We ate here recently while staying at the guesthouse. There was a function on but in our section of the dining room there were only three couples. The service was good and the meals were tasty but small and overpriced. But I guess it is the Hunter Valley!! Between the 4 of us we had 3 main meals and one... More

We were staying in the peppers guest house and as this is the restaurant onsite we decided to give it a go. Friendly staff, very bubbly and attentive but the food was average to say the less. Poor cut of steak, frozen fries and green leave salad no dressing. Chocolate cake for dessert was yummy. Won't be rushing back.

Description
Dining at The Guest House Restaurant will leave you in no doubt as to why it is one of the Hunter's favourite restaurants for locals and visitors. Authentic Italian influences in the restaurant blend with a fresh, seasonal menu, complemented by a wine list boasting the best of the Hunter Valley. Enjoy the picturesque valley views with a romantic table for two on the outdoor terrace, or by the fireside in winter. Still a favoured meeting place for local winemakers and produce heroes, the atmosphere and friendly service creates an unforgettable dining experience.
