Lucky to get a table at this popular venue if you don't book ahead. We ate in the cellar door with great views & service. The crab linguine was the best & the local rose matched it perfectly.

We came down for a function and stayed in the Henry Lawson one bed cottage. Beautifully finished, large and well appointed. A lovely outlook over the creek, capturing the sun but sheltered from any noise or wind, birdlife everywhere. We will be back!

We’ve been here 5-6 times and regard it as a must visit if you’re in the area. We spend a full day reading, eating, tasting wines. It’s indulgent, relaxing and just feels good for your soul.
