Excellent service, whitebait omelettes were delicious, fish n chips a bit bland. Desserts were great especially the berry trifle. Would recommend & will return.

Friendly service and a warm greeting. This is our local, and we pop in occasionally. However, we haven't been for a dinner for a while, and great to see some new additions to the menu. Loved the Venison shanks after an entree of a very good seafood chowder with heaps of seafood. My son had the quesadilla to start, and followed with the terakihi.
A great meal.

Not as good as our last visit.Two of our meals were below par.They were the burger and eye fillet which was requested medium rare.So a little disappointing for a first table experience.
It was a pleasant surprise to find happy hour operating.

Attention from Craythornes staff was terrific. We were welcomed on arrival, with no concerns raised when we advise the 2 of the party were running slightly late.
Excellent staff, excellent meals at an excellent venue lead to an excellent meeting of our sons partner.
This is an excellent family restaurant, who's menu covers all tastes and meal needs.
Congrats to your staff and their dedication to excellent service to us as patrons.

Great value!
Only 1 criticism, no horseradish sauce for the roast beef and no custard for the apple crumble!, ( both minor things!)

Crathornes menu was so varied, we both had a difficult job deciding what to have as a Main. We both chose the Sweetened braised Pork on a root vegetable gratin & it was absolutely delicious. Hubby had the White Chocolate & Baileys cheesecake & I had the Lemon Syrup cake & they didn't disappoint either. Staff were tentative & service was slick. It is a noisy environment as tables are near the bar but that wouldn't stop us from going to Craythornes again.

I took my Mum out for breakfast and we were warmly welcomed, not only did we have a table reserved next to the fire, but the woman serving us was so friendly and helpful.
Our coffees were delicious and our breakfast was also rave worthy. My mum had eggs and bacon on toast, and she thoroughly enjoyed it and I had the eggs benedict with smoked salmon, highly recommended! We will be back!

Had a very good main meal, possibly a newer menu since we last dined there.
Excellent food, well cooked and presented.

The cheesecake desert was a bit disappointing though, hard to find a great restaurant cheesecake.

Great for the kids with desert included in the price always a winner.

Will go back.

We had breakfast recently at the Craythorne. Being the weekend and early it wasn’t too busy which was ideal for bringing our son. We were seated near the fireplace which was great and cosy. Our orders were taken promptly. The menu had a great range of meals and a very good children’s breakfast menu. Our meals were fresh, tasty and a good size. We ordered the Salmon Eggs Benedict and the French Toast which were enjoyable. We will be back again.
