We had the most amazing dinner here. Ok, the prawns for entree weren't fresh but the food was still good. Calamari was good and eye fillet, plentiful and delicious. Will .come back as we drive through next time as it is a "must do "

I have to start by declaring my connection to this building. It was built by my grandfather, John Edward Knowlman after a motoring tour he and my grandmother, Nellie, did in the UK in the early 1930's. He loved the Inns he visited in England and decided to build his own. It was also a project to provide work for... More

We were really looking forward to our meal. Unfortunately it must have been an off night. The service was slow, quite a number of items were not available from the menu, and the food was just OK. I don't think I will be going back.

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

Always a treat and lovely to go back to. My steak was cooked blue on some mash. Dessert sticky date never fails to hit the spot.
