The Blaxland Inn is in a central location of the Hunter Valley, on the main road leading to the centre of Pokolbin. It is housed in a country style house with inside dining and also space out front (covered). It is classified as Modern Australian, but could also be referred to as a steakhouse / bistro / Brasserie with homely meals from pastas to pork belly and steaks.
The atmosphere is casual and the service super friendly and efficient. The manager Kylie served us, and was outstanding at her job. She recommend our wine and it was a quality drop. It is super busy and booked out for the evening, so if you plan to go, be sure to book for dinners.
They offer three different steaks and we order the Rib eye 200g. Streaks come with a complimentary side dish (we chose the steamed veg) and sauce (we had mushroom).
We also had a fresh salad with roasted pumpkin, beets and tomato as well as their incredible corn bread. Served as muffins, this was warm and had a nice sweet corn taste to it.
Drink wise, there’s plenty of wines, beers and ciders on the list.
If you’ve been on wine tours all day and you’re planning on a drink or two more, they’ve also got a courtesy bus, just be sure to book.
