We stopped here as part of our Blaxland wine tour package that included lunch. Beautiful food and the service was great too.

“Fantastic Customer Service”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Held my partner's 40th birthday celebration here and from the moment I spoke with the Manager, Amee I knew I had made the right decision on the venue. Right from the start, Amee went above and beyond to cater for our personalised requirements, always friendly and nothing was too difficult. The night was a huge success with thanks to the awesome staff including Rachael, who even though unwell, helped prepare decorations prior to guest arrivals and ensured the night went smoothly. The staff were second to none and the food delicious. Steaks were cooked beautifully. Huge thanks to all the wonderful staff. Cannot praise them enough. Looking forward to returning to this family friendly restaurant. Very highly recommend!

“Feels like Family”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

The girls and I were on a birthday wine tour and stopped in at Blaxlands for a lovely long lunch. We were welcomed at the door by Amee (the manager) with a huge smile and a friendly conversation and shown through to our table in the lovely enclosed outdoor dining area. Despite them being very busy our waitress gave us prompt, friendly service and the kitchen staff were fantastic about catering to our dietary wants and needs (making a spectacular vegetarian option for me and giving the birthday girl a meal from the dinner menu). The food was fantastic with generous portions and great flavor. All the staff were amazing, always friendly and willing to chat despite how busy they were and letting us have a cake for the lucky birthday girl (and even singing happy birthday with us). They didn't mind us sticking around for a nice long relaxed lunch and treated us so well it felt like we were family. I would definitely recommend a visit to Blaxlands for any occasion!

“Good food beside a roaring real fire!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Pros-Free pick up and drop off from your accommodation! Chicken pie, chocolate platter, garlic mash, excellent kids meal choices including healthier options and the staff were great with our sons gluten and egg intolerances.

Cons-Steak a bit disappointing and children's meal portions on the small side-a comment from our 5 year old son.
