Menu is fully labelled for food allergens and staff are knowledgable. Hard to choose which meal to order - as there are so many exciting GF options! We really enjoyed our slow cooked braised lamb with pumpkin and side of broccolini in chilli and oil. Beautiful local wines and beers. Good for kids too. Will definitely dine again.

Would highly recommend The Celler restaurant. The food was amazing (the 7 layer chocolate cake was particularly special), the staff were attentive without hovering and had excellent knowledge of the menu, and the atmosphere was just right for a small family celebration.

We have been to The Cellar previously for a family celebration and thought the service and food were good. This time service and food were excellent. Initial telephone booking was followed by a call back from staff to try to accommodate our wishes on a very busy day. They were able to provide precisely the table we had asked for.... More

A nice looking restaurant but very loud inside if there are groups. We had dinner here and were greeted by the friendly staff and seated. We ordered our wine and then went straight for mains. My main was the scotch fillet - medium and hubbie had the lamb cutlets. Both meats were disappointingly tough. The peppercorn sauce had no actual... More

Zucchini flowers were cooked to perfection, dining outdoors with crisp white Hunter Valley wine was a delight. Service was excellent, menu very good in a lovely little shopping complex.

Extremely delicious and good value dinner. Our group of friends had the most memorable evening at the cellar. Highly recommended. Especially since we we think to the muse the night after and experienced the biggest letdown. Going recommend the cellar any day over the muse.

We enjoyed the food here. My hubbie really enjoyed his steak. We would definitely go back. I had the scallop entrée which was nice too.

We visited the Cellar on Monday Apr 10 as part of a organised Wine Tour. The Steak and Chocolate Desert was excellent and the service given by Louise and Natalie was friendly, professional and efficient.

We were a large group wanting a better dining experience than the previous night in another establishment close by. The decor was lovely and I felt I should have dressed up a bit. Menu very extensive and expensive considering sides are extra. We discovered that you cannot have an entree only - you must buy a main. None of us... More
