The School House Restaurant
Beautiful room, excellent service, delicious food and very good value for the quality of ingredients. Food more sophisticated than the simple menu suggests at first glance.
Friendly service & well designed restaurant. Loved the chairs & fitout.
The main course of Lamb was cooked perfectly but the Zucchini Pappardelle was bland & flavour free.
The wine list was interesting & thought through.
Loud Rock music played most of the night wasn’t appropriate & substantially took away the ambiance. We asked for the music to be turned down...but to no avail.
Sadly we came away underwhelmed & did not enjoy the experience.
Absolutely incredible food! Will be recommending to everyone!
Wonderful experience, able to accomodate children, food and service both amazing!!
Relaxed but refined experience, generous servings (barramundi was outstanding). Definitely will visit again.
The food was excellent and the staff very friendly. The ambiance of the restaurant is very good and to our taste.
Friendly service combined with good food and a nice ambience made our dining experience quite memorable.
A fixed menu operation at a fixed price (2 or 3 courses) with a choice of 3-4 choices per course. The price was $60 pp for a 2 course meal plus wine.
With the exception of the seafood all produce was local as was the wine selection, though I did note they had some overseas wines available on request but not listed. Wine could be purchased by the glass to enable pairing with the meal.
For mains we had sirloin steak with local vegetable purée and a mushroom tagliatelle while for dessert we had a silky smooth panacotta and apple turnovers in a whisky sauce....yum. Service was friendly and attentive.
Excellent food in lovely setting. Service was great.
We had a lovely time and enjoyed the food a lot as it was of a high standard however, portions were not overly big. I thought $60 would have included sides with the main but we had to pay extra for those. Couldn’t fault the service!
Excellent menu. The lamb was particularly good as was the beetroot salad starter. Very good range of local wines at sensible prices. Staff- friendly, efficient and knowledgeable .
We dined here on a Sunday night and could only get an early booking time. However, the food was excellent and I am so glad we decided to take the only available booking. I had the Beetroot entree followed by the Barramundi, both were beautifully presented and delicious.
We had a lovely meal here after a day visiting the wineries. The restaurant is in a beautiful old building with a courtyard strung with fairy lights giving it a lovely atmosphere. The food and service was excellent, attentive and helpful without being too much. I had the beef tataki followed by the lamb rump with a shared side of zucchini. All the dishes showed off the local produce, were full of flavour and perfectly cooked. We also shared a portion of the apple empanada to finish off a fantastic meal.
We had dinner at a local hatted restaurant the day before - the food, ambiance and service we received at The Schoolhouse were superior and much better value for money. I would highly recommend The Schoolhouse.....
Great venue, lighting, ambience etc. Happy with the food and service. Not an ideal place for vegetarians and I'm sure their meat dishes are much more their specialty. Only adding the review to encourage some improved vego options, but again we are probably not the target market. Nevertheless it's a growing movement and the vego meal was a tad on the oily side as is often the case in places that cater more to omnis.
Great experience nonetheless, 4/5 stars.
We had a private room for our 6 person dinner on Saturday evening which made for some lively conversation and added to the intimacy and sense of occasion. The room was beautifully decorated with native flowers, interesting artwork and comfortable chairs. In spite of us arriving early for our booking, the staff were very welcoming and accommodating. The food and wine are sourced locally and we had a choice from a set menu of 2 and 3 courses. Our food was superb - we all really enjoyed the variety and the beautiful flavour combinations on offer. The standout was the beetroot entree which was delicious, and the panna cotta, although we all loved our entrees and desserts. The only fault of the entire meal was that the lamb was not served warm enough. The wine list offered a range of excellent local wines and we chose wines we had sampled on previous trips which complimented our meal to perfection. We would highly recommend this to anyone wishing to experience the high quality local produce of the Orange area.
Great food - the spring menu was better than the winter when we were last in Orange. Lamb was soft & succulent, and desert (Vanilla slice) was exceptional.
One of the best meals we have ever had - great fresh clean food using local produce and wines - could not recommend enough!
Food was excellent and lovely building to dine in.
Nice food, especially as it is made in house. Not your usual fair , a bit more upper class.
Loved the chairs, more like a lounge chair. Make sure you book ahead otherwise you might miss out.
Lovely food, lovely experience. Highly recommend this restaurant.
It was excellent service and delicious good, but, my husband left hungry. Portion sizes were not big enough for half of the people in our party.
Great night - great food
Nice tasty dinner $60 for two coarses wine was very reasonably price
I like restaurant that have table clothes on them
Food was very tasty no faults
Great food, great service and very nice ambience. Staff were very friendly and openly engaged. Food was the right size for us as we don’t eat big meals. That said I suspect some might think it a little on the small size
Excellent service and food
Best we had ion our Orange getaway
The team went out of their way to help us manage my daughters allergies and we can’t thank them enough
We had a great all around experience at the School House Restaurant. The food was cooked well, I especially loved that the desserts were not cloyingly sweet. I also really enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant.
We celebrated our wedding anniversary in this highly recommended restaurant and we were not disappointed. The food and wine were very nice and the staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. Although the food selection was limited due to COVID and was a set price the quality was very good.
The Union Bank was an amazing experience for our group. The service was outstanding, as was the food & private room.
We had a memorable meal at The Schoolhouse Restaurant. The staff were welcoming and attentive and all three courses were delicious, some of the best food we've eaten in ages. The wine list is also great, mostly local labels with a broad range of both varieties and price points.
Excellent food and service in a charming former school building. Need to book.
Faultless service, beautiful food, gorgeous setting.
The food was fantastic, true to the local area and quality first class. Great service and great atmosphere - we will return
First time there will certainly go again
An enjoyable experience and time
Food was great service was great noise level increased as more people arrived background music exacerbates this and is quite unnecessary
Great service and food to embrace the region and its hospitality.
We really enjoyed our dinner at The Schoolhouse - I would definitely recommend it. Thanks Matt and team
Food presentation and flavours was superb. Great atmosphere. Highly recommend this restaurant.
The lamb dish was so fatty I could not eat it. It should never have been served.
The level of service is remarkable. The details from the explanation of the dishes to the story behind the ingredients made it clear that Chef Dom has spent a lot of time and puts a lot of love into what he does. If the experience with service wasn’t enough the food was amazing. Everything on the menu sounded delicious and the dishes I had particularly the Parpadelle was so fresh and full of flavour. Unfortunately I was able to fit it all in and couldn’t try every dish which just means I’ll be back for more soon! Thanks to all the staff for a wonderful evening
An absolutely wonderful evening- fantastic food, friendly & informative staff and great wine.
