Good Food Guide



"The word that best describes The Cellar is big; everything here seems to be writlarge.  The space is lovely, open... and big.  In the centre, a huge stone fireplace draws people like iron filings to a magnet when the logs are lit in cooler months.  Around the perimeter, a shock of green in a jungle of healthy indoor plants adds character.  The welcome is big too, with country smiles a mile wide.  And the portion sizes are... well, you guessed it..."

The Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide 2012

"A summer and winter favourite, the Cellar's real draw is chef and proprietor Andy Wright's restrained treatment of outstanding local produce."

The Sydney Morning Herald, Good Living, 9th March 2010

“Consistently complex flavours, skilful cooking and appealing presentation… I’ve dined intermittently at The Cellar since 1979 and the food has never been this good.”
Jeff Collerson, The Daily Telegraph, 3rd March 2007
