Lovely food and atmosphere with friends. We had lots of wine! The food was really nice we had pizzas and tapas and thoroughly enjoyed it. My friend forgot her handbag (and didn't notice until the next day) and the staff put it away for her, it was dark and we were outside, a lovely view, so that was really nice... More

Great cocktails and service was good. We went up to the bar and there was no wait and were greeted by 2 bartenders. Cocktails were a bit pricey but not unreasonable. Dim lighting and decor was great.

Had an early dinner here before going over to the Xmas lights. In note of this to our waiter we thought service may have been a bit quicker, but seemed to be slower. Other than that food was pretty good. Really enjoyed most of it from entree to dessert. Apple mint juice mocktail was sickly sweet and not anything like... More

Goldfish is one of our favourite places to revisit whenever we are on holidays in the Hunter Valley, as we enjoy the atmosphere, cocktails & food- especially the pizza's! My husband & I always make a night of it & have a bit of fun too, as we have a rule you can't order the same cocktail twice! Goldfish have... More

Excellent amazing pizza and fabulous salad (Avo/radish) with a beer & wine. Lovely outside under the grapevine pergola with fountain bubbling adjacent. Will always lunch here now when visiting the area. One of the ritzy local golf resorts were having their staff Xmas party lunch here as well which says something about the food service quality etc.

I like fine dinning and we were out is step with the time difference at 7:30 we realised the time and thought .....! We will never get changed and find a place at such short notice. Decided the Pub/bar was probably a safe option. Well I was blown away! The staff are just brilliant, great knowledge and patient. We ordered... More

A group of us were here on a very warm evening, we had made a booking for inside as rain was forecaste, it was almost unbearably hot. We had to keep going outside to get some fresh air, it seemed that there was no air conditioning but when we asked a staff member he told us that there was ac... More

I don't mind paying money for decent meals, but food and drinks were ridiculously overpriced for what you got. The staffs attitude was quite condescending and they were not at all accomodating. Would not return.

This was bar far the worst experience of our three days in the hunter. Food was amazing. However the service was poor and ruined our evening. The wrong wine was brought to our table three times and one of our meals was completely forgotten. No apologies by our server left an extremely sour taste in my mouth. I don't think... More
