A beautiful relaxed setting within the Hunter Valley Gardens was our choice for Sunday ‘lunchinner’ (late lunch, early dinner). We were seated before their lunch closing time of 3pm.

Our table came in as most others were finishing their meals, as a result, service was a little lax with a long wait for drinks. After this though, service was fantastic with nothing a problem or too difficult.

I chose to team an entree with, a morsel and sides to create my own main. The result, scallops, curls of crispy pork crackling, beautifully made pork and superb cauliflower cheese with Yorkshire pudding.

Steaks arriving to the table were thick and juicy, as were the lamb cutlets.

Menu is extensive as was the wine list. Choosing to team lunch with the local The Cellar Chardonnay was definitely a good choice. This may be their house wine, however it had a lovely buttery taste and wasn’t a sharp Chardonnay.

Well done to all the staff at The Cellar Restaurant, we did enjoy being able to sit outside under a shady umbrella and soak in the wonderful setting. It was nice too, that tables weren’t too close together and we had some space around us. The outside seats are starting to age and become somewhat creaky, how ere none of them collapsed which is definitely a bonus!
