This entrée was pleasant in taste with the combination of the smokiness of charred prawn and the fresh vegetables definitely being its selling point.

The omelette was fluffy and creamy and the portion size was humongous, definitely value for your money with this dish.

The salmon was poached very nicely. The flavour was clean while the texture was firm yet still tender. The potato dauphinoise had a soft and melt-in-your-mouth texture. It was very creamy, perhaps a bit too creamy for my liking, but tasted delicious nonetheless.

Slow cooked Berkshire pork belly, apple butter, red sorrel and watercress salad, crackling

Beautifully presented, the pork belly was tender but the flavour was quite plain.

Chocolate cherry decadence

As the name suggests, this dessert is very indulgent. The richness of the chocolate dominated the whole dish. Chocolate lover with a super sweet tooth required.

Seasonal sorbet selection

This dessert contains three different sorbet flavours: lime, mango and raspberry. A refreshing end to our meal with the mango sorbet smelling just like fresh mango.

The Tea Room is headed by Head chef Robert Crichton who serves a selection of seasonal Australian produce matched with an inspiring list of Australian and international wines.
