Our family gathering really enjoyed the experience of lunching at the Glasshouse. We thought the venue was very professional and really sets a standard not achieved by others in the district. Well maybe one other.
We will be back.
our recent experience was lovely albeit the time between sitting and being serviced breakfast was just under an hour and likely due to kitchen staff.
on going to pay for our meal the manager advised this was paid for on her behalf due to the wait, which my wife and i found a lovely gesture and shows why we love coming to the Glasshouse frequently.
Noisey as there were a few Christmas party lunches happening. But otherwise lovely.
Fantastic service and the food was to die for. The lamb shoulder melted in your mouth and what a view!
The first thing you notice about Glasshouse Restaurant is the amazing architecture both inside and outside the building creating a great atmosphere with stunning views. The staff are very friendly and helpful with the menu and the food was delicious. We tried the crisp szechuan pepper squid, the home-made charcuterie, followed by slow cooked pork neck ...it was a bit dry could have done with a bit more sauce and then finished off with creme brulee which was my favourite! The mandarin gel, yuzu sorbet and lemon myrtle & finger lime served along side the brulee capped off the meal perfectly.
Would highly recommend both the Glasshouse Restaurant and Goonoo Goonoo Station as a must visit destination in NSW.
I had the pork neck which was basically pulled pork compressed into a cylinder. It was very dry. There was supposed to be sweet potato purée with it which would have been less then a teaspoon full smeared across the plate. We had broccoli as a side and it was too hard and mostly stalks. My friends ordered a plate of baked potatoes which was quite nice but they brought and extra plate of them so they gave them to us as well. The deserts were very nice, but overall considering it was very expensive I was very disappointed especially with the main meal. Won’t be going back
Service was very slow due to an injury in the kitchen, took over 30mins to get drinks to the table and the bacon and eggs enjoyed by myself and my dad was swimming with oil from the bacon and hashbrown. As we both suffer from reflux, the extra oil on the plate caused us both to feel unwell after the meal. The hashbrown was very yummy, but the amount of extra grease and oil coming from it and the bacon made the meal not as enjoyable.
Wow!!! What an amazing experience! The food was absolutely delicious, staff were very friendly and the atmosphere and view was gorgeous. Will definitely be going back again.
Great food and excellent wine list. They offered many good wines by the glass including a good Champagne by the glass.
We enjoyed a memorable evening with great food, excellent service and beautiful Australian rural views at sunset.
I thought the breakfast menu had been scaled back considerably since my last visit & while it was enjoyable portions were small
Glasshouse for breakfast offers excellent value for money, service and food. It is definitely no more than what you would pay at a café in the Tamworth CBD. It is ideal for a celebratory outing and is worth the short drive. Even in drought the setting is beautiful .
The food the service and the location is unique! Good value! And as I always say , I love taking out of town visitors to this piece of Tamworth’s history with a fabulous modern restaurant!
The food was okay but the menu choices were very limited. The portion size of the meals were very small and the 2 men went home still hungry even after 3 courses! The prices for the food and drinks were extremely high, especially considering the frugal serving size. If your “fine dining” means less food for more money then we certainly will not be returning to your restaurant.
We have visited Glasshouse and stayed a number of times and we have felt for some time that it's not quite what it used to be. The place is still stunning, and a beautiful situation, but small things have slipped a bit - the dead/ dying roses on the bar counter didn't look good, the first thing to be seen on entering. The breakfast was adequate, nothing special. I don't think we would be making the trip from Armidale again; it's disappointing to see a place which had been such a wonderful venue in every way becoming just another highly priced but unexceptional venue.
Always love dining at the Glasshouse!!
Very proud to take our out of town visitors to experience a wonderful historic venue in a modern setting! Highly recommended! And the new shop is a must visit with an eclectic collection of fashion and homewears !
The ambience of the restaurant was most pleasing. We loved the selections on the menu. I chose the Corn fed chicken breast and was not disappointed! It was very tender with a beautiful flavour. Our party of three shared our desserts - bombe Alaska, Creme brûlée an finally the affogato - loved each of them.
The staff were fabulous. They looked after us without a lot of fuss, ensuring all our needs were met. The meals were served promptly and efficiently. Would highly recommend the Glasshouse if you are looking for the ultimate food experience.
Great rustic, rural setting - beautiful views. For the most part our group enjoyed the dining experience. Only negative was that food could have been hotter, plus delay in getting butter on the table until all 20 had their meal meant that for those served first the food was cold by the time the butter came and they got to start eating.
Email I wrote to Glasshouse which to date remains unresolved!
My wife and I dined in the glasshouse restaurant and were looking forward to celebrating our 10 year anniversary at Tamworth’s “best” restaurant. Our night started beautifully as we also booked in to stay the night in the shearer’s quarters. The accommodation and grounds are superbly maintained. We had high expectations for dinner after walking in to the restaurant and admiring the wine cabinet, decor, architecture and view out to the albeit dry countryside.
Waitress service was excellent throughout the night but thats where it ends.
Given the abundance of staff both entree and main were extremely slow to come out, something which was reiterated by other tables nearby.
The meals were Luke warm, steak over cooked, lacked flavour and for the portion sizes, overpriced.
On mentioning our thoughts on the meals, the waitress did offer dessert or a cheese platter on the house, and even though still hungry, declined the offer due to the dissatisfaction of the previous meals.
Referring to your website illustrations and viewing the selection of meals and menu on offer, we were left utterly disappointed with our choice of venue for our anniversary.
After the dinner experience we won’t be attending the breakfast service which we were looking forward to also.
Our breakfast took an hour to be made and there was no one else waiting. As result we had to rush through eating because we needed to get back for work. This was very disappointing.
We have been to the glasshouse a number of times, we have always found the experience exceptional. The atmosphere is hard to beat with the large windows looking out to the rolling hills of Goonoo Goonoo. The difference this time is that I found the food has developed a further level again of sophistication and complexity of flavours.
Beautiful views, excellent service, delicious fresh local produce.
Gorgeous View, beautiful view and very attentive staff.
We were a family of five and found it very comfortable and the acceptance of young people .We loved your new menu thank you for the experience. 🍺🥂☕🏺
Absolutely great, could have stayed much longer, also great experience in the 'Shearing Shed'
Lovely food and drinks, nice way to spend a Sunday lunch
We were so looking forward to this lunch having booked it for our 10 year wedding anniversary but the overall experience was not nice. I have dined before at the Glasshouse but not my husband. The meals were so so small and I was really shocked at their size when they arrived. My previous meals were quite large when I have dined before. My husband ordered the steak & for $42 you would think it would be a decent size, but the entire meal was no bigger than the palm of my hand. I had the barramundi which was also really small.
Our lunch was $128! I realise it’s a 5 star restaurant but when you pay lots of money you would expect value for money.
I’m really sorry but after this experience I don’t think we will be back in a hurry.
Excellent and I would recommend to all. Service and food brilliant.
Absolutely delicious food set in a casual friendly atmosphere which is child friendly and fantastic views - the perfect place to celebrate Father’s Day!
Simply stunning. Everything was superb. The butterscotch bombe alaska is the most magnificent dessert I’ve ever eaten.
Always an enjoyable experience. Would thoroughly recommend.
Expected so much more. Breakfast was not very warm and the waffles tasted like cardboard. They were very dry and no white chocolate to be seen. My guest were also very underwhelmed by the whole experience. Staff were friendly but this did not counteract the lack of view and warm average food.
The atmosphere, the view and the service were all excellent. It is a wonderful place to enjoy good food and the company you love. Thankyou
Wasn’t told that the kitchen closes breakfast finishes at 10:30 until 10:30 and then had to rush to make a decsison. Then didn’t have some options on the menu
Disappointing this time, as all of our breakfasts for five were marginally better than cold.
With only six other diners in the restaurant, I could not understand the delay.
Great service, fantastic food have been a few times and the food is always amazing, did have a slight mishap with drinks not coming out but over all great
Very pleasant evening at a great venue. Excellent food, great service and good value for money
It was a lovely experience. Everything was 5 star. Enjoyed it very much.
Beautiful place, as always. Great service, outstanding food.
The service was frustrating.....slow on drinks, wrong order taken for dessert, spilled drink off tray and the continual response of “not a problem “ wore thin.
Food, ambience, value all great
