5 of us enjoyed a lovely lunch celebration. Coming from out of state we were a little disappointed that we were not able to access the outdoor deck ( unfinished) but we were looked after as we were then seated in "The Fernery". We chose the Miller platter , the veggie patch ( platter) and chips and we were extremely... More

What an amazing place, if you want to impress someone, this is the place to go. The ambience in the large room was comfortable and welcoming, music played gently in the background adding to the atmosphere but not intruding. Our waitress was warm, good natured and helpful, she went above and beyond by making inquiries on our behalf about local... More

Decided to go for a drive on an indifferent day and stopped for lunch at the BM. Had read some positive reviews since it changed hands a while ago and were not disappointed. Fabulous food, wine, setting and service. Kingfish starter was a particular standout but we loved everything- scallops with shaved asparagus and confit potato to start, along with... More

Before we were due to fly home to Sydney I wanted to take my wife to a landmark Adelaide restaurant and not only was BWM open on a Monday, it was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. Bright, attentive staff and wonderful food. We opted for the tasting menu and it was well worth it as we relaxed through... More

Dinner Friday night for seven. The main room was setup for a wedding, we were lucky to have a magnificent old timber table in a quiet alcove where we could talk at normal levels, and enjoy the food. The wine list has a good range of sparkling wines including a selection of Arras, and the white and red list is... More

Had a Saturday afternoon lunch at The Bridgewater Mill. They were flat out however service levels of the staff was maintained at a high standard and they were very friendly. Great menu and wine list but the key feature was the magnificent Creekside setting. A very pleasurable afternoon and highly recommended

A fabulous building, beautiful from the outside and very special from the minute you walk in. We enjoyed a Saturday evening dinner here and sat up in the balcony area, the tables are all well spaced apart creating a bit more privacy. We opted for the tasting menu. Overall the service was very friendly if a little on the slow... More

An awesome place for a quiet lunch or a celebration with friends. The food was amazing. We tried the tasting menu and it was fantastic. The service was exceptional. Very attentive. We will definitely go there again. This place has a lot of history. So a visit is recommended if you are in the Adelaide hills.
