Dad and I are regulars at Dowhill and recommend it very warmly. The staff could not be more helpful or welcoming, and the food is freshly cooked and delicious. A major refurbishment is underway and we look forward to the new restaurant and gift shop. The interim arrangements have proved very satisfactory. One of the huge things going for Dowhill... More

When the plate arrived it was huge......a lovely sandwich on very fresh bread with delicious locally sourced smoky bacon, all accompanied by... More

The restaurant and shop are undergoing a refurb at the moment so the 'cafe' is currently in a very small space. The staff were very friendly however the... More

The main restaurant is currently undergoing renovations, however this did not change the friendliness of the staff or the quality of the food. It is a lovely place to have lunch, morning or afternoon tea. Once the renovations have been completed it will be an even better place to visit. we would like to thank Kelsie for looking after us...

The staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Picked up some great fresh veggies as well from the shop. Believe there are renovations going on and the space is smaller than it will be so there... More

Sign outside said opening after recent major improvement. Not true. The improvements are still underway and will take several more weeks to complete. Restaurant has moved into temporary accommodation. The changes and building work do not impact on your visit. The temporary accommodation was quite nice, clean but a little cramped. Service was slow and choice limited. We could accept... More
