“Good choice for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

Yummy pizza - we had the prosciutto pizza to share, the wild mushroom pizza looked great as well. it was lovely sit outside in the sun. The service was quick. It did get a bit busy when the tourist buses arrived, but still there was plenty of room for everyone!

good food, one waiter was lovely, the waitress was 'cold'. We had the lunch deal which was to share a pizza of choice, two sides or one starter plus 2 glasses of wine. good value. the brussel sprouts been AMAZING!

“Great atmosphere and excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

There are a lot of great choices for food in the Hunter Valley but you won't be disappointed by this one. We had the scallops and arancini for entree which were sensational. The pork cutlet was very tender and the beef short-rib was melt in your mouth. A great atmosphere, plenty of room, definitely on to put on the to-do list!

“relaxed atmosphere, quality drinks and excellent drinks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

This bar is a quality venue, probably the best bar in the Hunter valley.The pizza's are legendary and the Ala carte menu is also of a high standard. The main point of their food is that its consistent never dropping in standard (I've dined here a few times).

As for their drinks; the variety of beers, wine and Spirits make this a true stop off spot on your Hunter valley holiday.

Just be mindful with large crowds, loud music and a vibrant atmosphere this isn't the best place to go for a romantic dinner nor would I recommend it for young kids (though who brings kids to a bar).

Great vibe great location, I will defiantly be back

“Terrible service and overpriced”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

The good tasting food is overshadowed by the terrible service. It was clear that the staff had better things to do on a Sunday or just forgot they were being payed to be polite. Don't order a light beer if you are driving...you will hear the bartender yell at the waitress that they have no light! And then see no urgency to go the restaurant next door to get you a warm one 15 mins later. And don't ask for a desert menu...because you will be met by a waiter who has to go and ask for a menu from the bar, then to come back and say "I thought we did...but we don't" ...clearly manners aren't a prerequisite for staff. Most of all...you will be hit with a 10% surcharge on a Sunday even when it is not stated on their website or on the menu???but be sure, it is on the bill!...so when you just paid $139 for a below average experience...imagine how you'll feel when you have to fork out another $13.90. However, the food was tasty...but by no way is it a saving grace. Plenty of other places to go.
