“Perfection!”
Review of Hunters Quarter

Hunters Quarter
Ranked #6 of 80 Restaurants in Pokolbin
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$14 - US$30
Description: The new establishment, which will be known as HQ to locals and regulars, will offer an elegant dining experience with modern Australian cuisine, driven by high quality seasonal local produce, and relaxed and attentive service. Head chef, Brian Duncan brings a wealth of global and local experience in fine dining to HQ, having worked at the Dorchester Hotel and Claridges Hotel in the upmarket area of Mayfair in London, and also at Level 41 and The Establishment, two of Sydney’s premier restaurants. Brian’s breadth of experience and exposure to a variety of world cuisines bring a unique and refined quality to his product, and his philosophy on food is based on simple, fresh, local and seasonal produce. The HQ wine list will mainly focus on local wines, and will also offer some interstate and international wines.

Fabulous food, wine & service . Wish we were staying longer so we could dine here again. Be sure to snag a bottle of Cockfighter's Ghost on the way out...so good!

We had dinner here tonight. The food was stunning and delicious. We highly recommend this restaurant, it is our "go to" place each time we stay in the Hunter Valley as they take the time to make us feel welcome as well as explain what is on the menu.

Thank you for the many great meals, we look forward to getting back there again soon. Pete & Sue

Can I say Pete & Sue what a buzz it gives us here at HQ to hear we are one of your favourite restaurants. Given that we are a fairly young family run business, it's nice to know we are receiving regular travellers. We look forward to welcoming you both again when your next in the Hunter.

I had one of the best lunches I've had in Hunter for years.
We had the bar menu, the portions were perfect and the quality of the food was marvellous. The staff created a lovely atmosphere and we had some of the best conversations we've ever had.
After paying the bill we kept on talking and talking. The staff brought us new glasses and filled up our waters for us. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon
