Warm welcome, friendly staff and super cosy for a cold winters night.

Three of us dined at this Restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. My friend Mark is a regular.

Attention to detail included a warm bread roll whilst waiting for our Entree.

Entree of Octopus was superb. I am not normally an Entree person but this was delicious.

Main Course - I love duck, but this duck dish was SUPERB. Duck is known for a high fat content but this was lean and perfectly suited to my picky taste buds.

Both Entree and Main were the perfect balance and I had no room for Dessert. Presentation was not over the Top - A basic beautiful presentation.

Price was well worth what we were presented with.

Staff - No fake smiles there. Genuine friendliness and no pretentiousness to be found.

Would I go back - Oh yes, and yes again.

Had a tremendous meal at Ashcrofts, and Adrian and Csilla have grown in confidence since taking over from the previous owners. The meal started off with an amuse bouche (lightly smoked cauliflower veloute with truffle oil) which was delicious. The mains were excellent, complicated with several components - and the biggest surprise of all, the deserts were simply scrumptious and elegant (as good as top Sydney restaurants with their own dessert chefs). We are simply grateful to find a restaurant of this quality and a chef with such imagination (and who does not cut corners) up in the Blue Mountains. Go visit !!!

This is an expensive menu and wine list with very few choices for vegetarians. Cuisine average. Portions were small. A disappointing experience.
