“Great Food and Genuine Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

My partner and I dined at Blaxlands and genuinely enjoyed the entire experience.
The décor is rustic without being over the top or gaudy. My partner is extremely fussy and I often struggle to find a restaurant where he will enjoy the menu however the Blaxlands menu was a perfect combination of wholesome, traditional meals as well as unique and tasty creations. It is a very accommodating menu for all.
He enjoyed the rump steak whilst I enjoyed the Chicken pot pie which was delicious.
The house Semillon was a nice drop and paired quite well with the flavours of the chicken pie.
The service was very good, all the staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and willing to help. We will definitely be back!

“Ordinary food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Had lunch here as part of a large bus tour, and as a result our menu options were limited.

I chose the deep dish chicken pie, a dish that was one of their specialties. Very disappointing - basically watery soup with a crust on top - with not much flavour at all. The prices were reasonable, the atmosphere very nice, and the staff lovely but all in all the food was average.

“Great Service great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

The staff were friendly, the service was great and the food best of all tasted very good. There is a lovely foreplace in the restuarant that keeps the room lovely and warm especially during the winter months.

Had our anniversary dinner here on our trip to the Hunter Valley and it was great. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the customer service was fantastic.
