We are locals who enjoy our return visits to The Cellar Restaurant. Great menu! Friendly attentive service! Food lovers paradise. The four of us had varying choices- barramundi, slow cooked lamb and chicken as mains. Compliments to the chef from each and everyone of us. The meals and 2 side dishes filled us well. Some had entrees , some dessert... More

We had Oysters for entree and snapper as our main, both were fresh as and the snapper cooked to perfection. The service was excellent, lovely friendly staff. Our international friends that were with us thoroughly enjoyed . Thank You Barry & Joy

Lovely atmosphere, polite service and really good food. It was busy so it was a little slow but the wine was good so it didn't really make a difference for us. Good range of gluten free options. Would go again if we visit the Hunter.

Disappointed with uncreative $$$ meals, mundane customer service and lack of child awareness in this "so-called" family restaurant. Best thing about it was its location in the village. Sorry but no tip!

Honest, tasty food. Portions are generous, so sides are meant to be shared. Convenient m location and friendly service. Good value for money. I'll be back! 4 stars: small mix up with non alcoholic drinks. Panacotta need improvement.

We've eaten at this restaurant many times but it had been a while since our last visit. We had previously found the meals to be a consistently high standard and our recent visit did not disappoint. I was particularly happy with the quality (and value) of the children's meals. Aside from the beautiful meals, I like the relaxed atmosphere/surroundings.

We went on a Monday night when a lot of other restaurants are closed so it was quite busy. There was a good variety of entrees and mains and a very eclectic wine list with a number of entries I was not aware of even though I'm quite a wine aficionado. I liked the McGuigan Personal Selection Chardonnay. Good food... More

This restaurant was our choice for dinner after an over 800 km long drive. We needed to wind down and relax so we dined early. The food here was good, but not memorable. A good selection of Hunter Valley wines did wonders and we all enjoyed the evening . The Cellar has a cosy atmosphere.
