Terrific !

Friendly staff, a cheeky chef, great food, terrific setting and great value !.. Will definitely go there again and can't wait till they add their own accommodation into the mix next year !.

Wow this was different to what we thought.

the food was wonderful. The fact that the local produce was excellent the staff certainly knew what they were talking about. Wines were excellent. Food CONGRATULATIONS to the chef. We were their on a 43degrees day and still were comfortable. A credit to our pioneers, they were such great architects. We have been to numerous places and this is one of the best we have tasted. We would highly recommend and have verbally recommended this to friends and family

An explosion of beautiful flavours to tantalise the taste buds.

A lovely outdoor table setting under shady fruit trees overlooking a rural country scene. The staff were friendly, professional and very informative of the produce that we were about to enjoy. The sample platter had a wonderful array of cheeses, fruits and homemade jams. The main meal consisting of goats meat served on a hot cast iron pan with flat bread and with a lovely salad including raspberries and cranberries was just FANTASTIC and accompanied with a lovely local red wine. My wife had a rabbit pie which was so tasty and served with chunky homemade chips that were crunchy and flavoursome and topped off with a salad with caramelised walnuts that were to die for and served with a great white wine. The dessert of lemon pie was so melt in the mouth satisfying and this was all enjoyed with a strong cappaccino. In conclusion great staff, lovely homegrown food, reasonably priced, a tranquil outdoor setting and with sweeping views.

It was a while since we last ate at Ambermere, and it was definitely time for a return visit. We drove down on Monday for lunch. What a beautiful place this is. The two open fires were going strong, and it was so warm and welcoming in the dining room. White tablecloths, antique dining chairs, sense of history, so quiet and peaceful. Fiona was as welcoming as ever and we enjoyed a good chat about local affairs. For lunch we both had the seafood soup, which was robust and flavoursome, served with buttered sourdough. We also ordered the chips with aioli. These were divine, a big bowl, so filling and yummy. Total cost for lunch: $38. Lisa is a creative chef whose country-style cooking is a perfect complement to this 1830s building and its long history. The dining room invites you to sit over lunch by the fire and forget the world for a few hours. There's also a very nice sunny courtyard at the back of the restaurant for warmer days. The wine list is mainly local labels from Orange and Mudgee with some interesting choices. Ambermere is highly recommended.

Everything about our experience was perfect. We had the three course regional food experience. Sitting out in the gorgeous courtyard on a sunny day under an umbrella with a cheeky country breeze. The service was five star. Every course from the regional tasting plate as a starter through mains & then dessert was awesome. Presentation & flavour a perfect marriage. Even the beverage options are special. The team know their menu and sell it well. We will be back it is an easy 90 minute drive up from Sydney. Exactly what you want for a lazy lunch. Thank you

The blending of old and new has resulted in creating an exceptional ambience within the restaurant to make your dining experience one to remember.

With  an excellent menu and an outstanding regional wine list, Ambermere Rose Inn  is definitely one of the best Blue Mountains restaurants to visit.

Whether you are looking for  a celebration party for a number, Ambermere will provide you with a memorable event.



Ambermere Rose Inn (originally named Rose Inn)  was first licensed in 1845 and operated as a public house and then a Cobb & Co staging post until 1873.  When the railway opened up the western corridor, road travel became less preferred and the Inn ceased operations in 1873.

A private residence for over a century Ambermere Rose went through meticulous restorations before re-opening the doors to the public in April 2010.

Today our vision is to offer our visitors a contemporary interpretation of what was historically on offer to the traveler in the 19th century.  This is recreated through our unique food and wine experience in one of Australia's oldest inns.
