    Be nice if they told you the additional charges $12 for water and also a surcharge on an ordinary Saturday. Soured the experience

    A beautiful and special High Tea in a stunning venue to celebrate a 60th birthday. The fire was on, ambience delightful (especially on a wet winters day!), waiting staff very attentive, food delicious and the range of teas to choose from amazing. Staff were very helpful and flexible in the lead up to the afternoon, and the welcome on the day was very warm. Our Birthday Girl was unexpectedly provided with a beautifully decorated individual 'dessert' on a plate adorned with "Happy Birthday" in delicious chocolate!! When our dining time was over we were offered the opportunity to stay and chat in another of the rooms at the venue. Appreciating how busy the staff are, having never been to the venue previously it would perhaps have been nice to be shown around to the other 'sitting room' options, or even given a map of the venue to allow us to easily make our way to a lounge area. We were instead left to wander somewhat aimlessly around the magnificent Mt Lofty House and did eventually find an unoccupied sitting room but it felt a slightly haphazard way to end an otherwise very special afternoon. Having said that, what a way and what a venue to celebrate a milestone birthday. Can highly recommend!

    Impeccable. The sommelier’s wine pairings were perfect and brought out delicious flavours in both the food and the wine itself. The food was wonderful and the staff were very attentive. My partner and myself loved the experience.

    i loved my experience there, you are treated well, the food is exceptionally well prepared served and made. I did try the wine that was offered the handmade grape wine, it sort of made my stomach turn a bit, I am more used to my sauvignon blanc. Would love to go again and stay, last time i did for two nights for a birthday gift, I was unwell which spoilt it a bit. Excellent to dine with a pleasant view.
