Description: This ultra-popular restaurant (especially with locals who love a long lunch here) serves appetising Mediterranean meals in a relaxed, inviting space. It has a great outdoor courtyard, surrounded by wisteria, with tables shaded by large umbrellas and inside there’s a huge open fireplace in the centre of the room, surrounded by crisp, white-clothed tables and indoor gardens. Owner/chef Andy Wright offers a seasonal menu using the best Australian produce with regulars returning for popular á la carte dishes like pan-fried barramundi and eight-hour slow-braised Milly Hill lamb or the signature dish – whole suckling pig roast (48 hours’ notice required).

Great food and really friendly staff. It is on the pricey side but it’s definitely worth it. Also a really convenient location.

There were 26 of us on 3 long tables. The ambiance is good but the waiter was a bit flustered. The food was amazingly good. The seafood entree was generous and fresh. The mains were also generous and delicious, although a couple of people were disappointed in the steak. Drinks were expensive and no BYO of course. Altogether a great place for a party.

My wife and I have been coming to this great place for around 18 years, for both lunches and dinners.
The ever solid yet relevant menu and continued quality produce a true mark of a restaurant over such a long period.
The setting is one of the most unique and charming settings that I can think off anywhere, let alone in this beautiful region.
Always a place on our minds while on a visit to Pokolbin.

Great place for dinner if you are going to see the Christmas lights at the Hunter Valley Gardens. Food here was interesting and delicious, nowhere near cheap though. I had BBQ Prawns and whilst they were hard work they were excellent. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meals, and we tried some things we had to google! Would recommend it. Service can be a bit slow, so tell them if you don't want to dawdle.

I have a number of food intolerances, so eating out can be a bit of a nightmare. The Cellar Restaurant was helpful (not all places are) in finding out what I could eat and making adjustments were possible. The atmosphere was warm and inviting and provided an excellent background to the conversation we have with our friends.
