A Favourite for All Seasons: The Cellar Restaurant

With a long-standing reputation for excellence, a visit to the Hunter Valley is not complete without a meal at The Cellar Restaurant.


Just a short stroll from Hunter Valley Gardens, The Cellar Restaurant specialises in Contemporary Modern Australian cuisine, focusing on fresh seafood, tender lamb and vegetarian dishes utilising fresh local produce.

The Cellar Restaurant is, in a word, unique and, without a doubt, one of the finest restaurants in the Hunter. Located on the grounds of the Hunter Valley Gardens Village, there’s no doubt that The Cellar Restaurant is the most central and most convenient spot in the Hunter to go for a meal. And in the cooler months, there is no better place to be, with the spectacular centrally located fireplace keeping diners wonderfully warm.

The menu is refreshingly diverse and well thought out, with inspired influences and an emphasis on fresh seasonal produce.

Starting with entrees, you will discover everything from Sydney rock oysters to delicious smoked squid, pork cheek, beef neck or a selection of delectable vegetarian options like goat’s cheese and pumpkin Rotolo. The selection of mains is equally as tempting and includes a selection of vegetarian treats alongside a choice of duck Maryland, smoked beef cheek, lamb shank, market fish with yellow curry sauce, pork loin or a slow-cooked lamb shoulder for two. Leave room for dessert, which comes with your choice of four mouth-watering delights. With these menu choices, you soon realise why The Cellar is considered one of the Hunter’s most outstanding restaurants.

The wine list is just as generous and includes an extensive range of excellent local Hunter Valley wines.

With its delightful setting, warm, attentive service, emphasis on simplicity of ingredients, excellent execution and presentation, The Cellar Restaurant is up there with the best in local and regional dining. It’s a summer and winter favourite amongst locals and visitors to the Hunter.
