Our first experience at The Fireplace and it did not disappoint. Attended the Bimbadgen Wines (Hunter Valley) Wine Dinner after receiving an invitation on Facebook. Awesome food matched with exceptional wines made this evening special. The care and attention from the staff and chef (who created a special Barramundi main course for my wife) was outstanding. This evening was our... More

Visited in a group for husbands birthday. Steaks are to die for, Service is really good. The restaurant provides its onw entertainment by being open with the wood fired cooking. You can watch and the chefs prepare everything,

Stayed at the hotel for a week and finished up eating at the Fireplace 3 nights. Closed Sunday and Mondays which probably prevented us dining there more often and the seafood buffet in the adjoining Cove restaurant on Saturday night is not to be missed. The Angus steaks are cooked to perfection in front of you in the wood fireplace.... More

High coffee was okay but not great. Not enough food and nothing special. We started with finger sandwiches. These were tiny and all three tasted quite similar. Then came a beef pie that resembled a frozen pie. It was nothing special. It would have been nice to have another hot, savoury dish before moving to the sweets. The sweets were... More

Was a very nice and cosy evening at the Fireplace. As it was a quite evening we got the full attention if the service, which was very nice, indeed. The steaks are outstanding. The wine list is a book of many pages. The selection of wine was supported by a very nice service lady. The quality of the Shiraz was... More

Been here a few times now and whilst the staff are lovely and can't be faulted there has never been enough to look after the bookings. We had a celiac and a vegetarian in our group and had rung prior to arrival when we booked to let them know. The vegetarian meal seemed like they had either forgotten there was... More

Restaurant is very good and food was exceptional. Loved the mushrooms and salmon. Service though was a little under rated. Had to wait for a while but overall a very pleasant experience.

Although we didn't actually have dinner here, one night we came to the fireplace to have dessert and ended up having the best cheese plater we've ever had. Big portions of cheese, lots of dried fruits and nuts and a wonderful muscat to wash it all down. Excellent service with a smile despite us arriving at 9:30pm.
