The FIRESIDE INN is in a quiet side street opposite a park in the centre of Goulburn NSW. It has an interesting "Olde World" ambience and a wonderful fireplace for winter diners. The food was contemporary and the menu was sufficiently varied to cater for many tastes. The presentation and quality of our meals was excellent. The portion size was... More

My boyfriend picked this restaurant for date night as he heard it was one of the best places to eat in town. The rumors are true! We had the pork belly for entree, the meat was very tender and balanced with poached apple/pear - a generous serve too. I had the duck for mains, the meat again was well cooked... More

A family celebration for 13 people. As always the food was lovely , service good. The cost was very competitive. Perhaps the restaraunt could do with a make over as hasn't changed in years but food is always lovely. A better coffee would also be great to end a good meal. Certainly would recommend it as a nice place to... More

Sensational food delivered in a cosy and inviting environment. Staff are very attentive and obliging. A large number of people attended the dinner along with several other patrons in the restaurant and everything ran very smoothly

The chef who worked here for years finally bought the business and since then the food which was always very good has improved as has the service. The best deal is the set menu lunch Tuesday to Friday(?) which gives a 3 course meal for about $30 with some choice and it is just delicious. The staff are friendly and... More

We went here for lunch on a winters day and it was just perfect! What a little gem?! Having gone for the two course lunch at a ridiculously low price, we weren't expecting too much, but wow, it was delicious! With the burning log fire and the perfect wine to accompany our lunch, we couldn't ask for more. Even if... More
