We had a lovely lunch at Wither Hills, we were seated in a bustling restaurant though were well looked after. The staff were busy but attentive and friendly. My sister and I shared the most delicious caramelised onion and rosemary flatbread, she ordered the Pork and I ordered the Salmon and we shared a garden salad. Everything was 10/10! Dessert... More

Staff has no clue about hospitality. Been waiting 1h for a dish not even hot... Meal was too dear for quality. Not worth it. We gave second chance, but just wasting money and time.

Probably my favourite vineyard for its gorgeousness, but the food really is outstanding. If you get the breads and dips to start, be hungry as it fills you up, the pate is AMAZING! The offer of sparkling water not just still is a great touch. The only thing I'd say could do with some attention are the floor tiles, could... More

We visited Wither Hills on an organised tour, this was our stop for lunch and the food was outstanding. My boyfriend still raves about the pork belly burger!! The wine tasting was excellent too, but the highlight was definitely the food!

Recently went to the restaurant for lunch expecting something amazing after a long drive and after deciding on the eye fillet medium rare, and the pork belly for my partner and I. What we received was an over cooked flavourless piece of meat with what tasted like hummus on the side. As for the pork belly there was no improvement... More

Lovely Sunday lunch with extended family. Breads were great, mains took over an hours wait which was unusual as there were only 2 other small tables. Staff were fantastic, attentive and hospital towards both the small children and our older grandparents. Great settings. Food needed a bit more depth to it. I.e Fish and mash wasn't great, needed a small... More
