We had a fantastic dining experience last night at The Guest House, very impressed!!The service really stood out: we were welcomed by all staff and the table service was both friendly and attentive. Couldn't fault any of the food: shared cured salmon for entree and had the pork and lamb for mains. Lamb two ways in the main course was... More

Our group of 6 ladies had booked in for a high tea on our reunion weekend. The setting and venue were gorgeous and we were welcomed by the staff. We started with a refreshing blended iced tea before enjoying the delicious assortment of sweet and savoury delights. All in all an enjoyable experience. Unfortunately we received a batch of undercooked... More

We had dinner at Chez Pok as we were staying at the Guest House. Just as well we decided not to have an entree as we were provided with bread rolls, bread sticks with seafood mousse, selection of olives and pork crackling. Our choice of 12 hour cooked lamb shoulder was divine, served with green beans, peas and feta and... More

A lovely venue, but only one vegetarian main on the menu. We would have appreciated a choice. The waitress said that they have very few vegetarian guests, and that the chef does not provide any options for vegetarians apart from the single main dish on the menu. This was a great shame as it would have been nice to eat... More

We had lunch at Chez Pok which has now changed its format to being a genuine Italian restaurant. The food was nothing short of sensational - the stand out dish being the Lobster Tortellini which is available as an entree or main course - definitely next time it will be the main course. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very... More

LOVED the breakfast during our stay! Staff are super helpful and the food was delicious. Dinner however was a different story. Very ordinary prawn pasta, slow roasted pork was nice, calamari entree was ok but very small portion. Wine list pretty good tho.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel on the June long weekend and had a great meal at the hotel's restaurant, Cez Pok on Sunday night. We were lucky to secure a table as we booked late in the day. Despite the restaurant being full, the generous spacing between tables meant that we were able to relax and enjoy... More

We stayed at the hotel and dined in their restaurant. The food was nice although the menu wasn't extensive. Unfortunately the waitress wasn't in the best mood that night. None the less I would go back and try again. The breakfast the following morning was lovey and so was the waitress.

This is the "dining room" at The Guest House small hotel. It has a nice atmosphere and very good food. As a hotel restaurant it serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The buffet breakfast is typical but good. The lunch and dinner menus are definitely upmarket. The highlight is the outdoor seating looking out over the bushland (at least in good... More

Dining at The Guest House Restaurant will leave you in no doubt as to why it is one of the Hunter's favourite restaurants for locals and visitors. Authentic Italian influences in the restaurant blend with a fresh, seasonal menu, complemented by a wine list boasting the best of the Hunter Valley. Enjoy the picturesque valley views with a romantic table for two on the outdoor terrace, or by the fireside in winter. Still a favoured meeting place for local winemakers and produce heroes, the atmosphere and friendly service creates an unforgettable dining experience.
